What's the difference between a .22 long rifle and a .22 short rifle?


Hey how do i loosen the wheels on my skateboard they don't turn that well, it's a new skateboard.?

All of the answers listed here are correct but in choosing your ammunition you should also consider the type of weapon you are using. Alot of .22 caliber ammunition is not appropriate for certain types of guns. If you try to shoot shorts in an automatic your weapon may not cycle because the short does not produce the pressure required to breach the bolt. You also should be careful shooting certain CCI ammo because alot of older guns do not need such a hot load and can be damaged by the pressure these rounds produce. If your gun accepts .22 long rife ammo I would suggest using Remington High Velocity rounds. They are plenty powerful and function in any .22LR without any concerns.

"Long Rifle," and "Short" (not 'short rifle') define a type of cartridge. The .22 caliber is available in .22 Long Rifle, .22 Long, and .22 Short. All three can be shot out of a rifle chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge. I've only seen pistols chambered for the .22 Short only; one of the tiny Beretta pocket pistols and some revolvers. I've never seen a rifle chambered only for the .22 Short.

The difference is in the cartridge description. The 'Long Rifle' round is the longest of the three (not to be confused with the .22 Magnum, NOT interchangeable with the other .22s). The 'Long' is longer than the 'Short,' but shorter than the 'Long Rifle.' The 'Short' is the shortest of the .22 caliber line-up AND the least 'powerful.' All will kill.

Happy New Year!
