I have a question from across the pond - I'm a student in the UK, so I'm nowhere near as acquainted with terminology as you folks, please forgive me if I'm incorrect in some details
For a recent assignment, I need to reconstruct a crime scene. One of the guns found, a Smith and Wesson 22A, from trajectories of shots, seems responsible for the firing of Winchester Super-X .22 Mag. As far as I am aware, it is not possible for a .22 LR such as the Smith and Wesson to fire .22 Mag rounds, because of the increased length and girth of the cartridge case?
My question is whether it is possible to rechamber the Smith and Wesson so that it is capable of firing .22 Magnum rounds? If this is possible, any indicator of the complexity of the procedure would be incredibly useful (as this assignment is set in Britain, so the process would be DIY rather than by a professional).
Thanks ever so much for any help you can give me,
