I dont know what a sporter delux is but; it will not chamber 22mag. That is a bigger case. One option for hunting with 22LR is CCI mini mag in 22LR.

There is no 22LR substitute or equal to the 22mag. For that you need to buy another rifle. I highly recommend you go ahead and get yourself a 22mag for hunting. Stick to plinking and paper for the LR. Once you hunt the mag, you will never go back.

1022 Deluxe Sporter? The .22 WMR "magnum" is an entirely different cartridge than the .22 Long Rifle. Ruger used to make a 1022 Magnum, but it's long discontinued. .22 mag semiautos aren't made in big numbers, but there are a few you might look for if you'd like a more powerful rimfire rifle in an autoloader.

I see a serious problem here when you asked that question. A firearm is made to shoot a specific size of ammunition with most if not all modern guns having the caliber they use engraved on the barrel. One should ONLY use that listed ammo.

I might be wrong but it seems as if the OP might be a new shooter, so I wouldn't be too harsh on the question asked. You have to learn somewhere, and this as good a place as any. It can be easy to get confused or hit with disinformation, but there are many posters here with large experience knowledge to share, about many firearm and hunting situations.

The .22 WMR has a larger diameter and length case than the .22 long rifle, does, uses a jacketed bullet without a heel like the old long rifle has, operates at somewhat higher pressures and has over double the energy of a long rifle cartridge. It takes different mechanicals to have the magnum work correctly in an autoloader.

• Released: 1884
• Bullet Diameter: .223 inches
• Rim Diameter: .278 inches
• Total Length: 1 inch
• Bullet Weights: 20 – 50 grain
• Primer Type: Rimfire

• Released: 1959
• Bullet Diameter: .224 inches
• Rim Diameter: .294 inches
• Total Length: 1.35 inches
• Bullet Weights: 20 – 50 grain
• Primer Type: Rimfire

go measure some 22lr bullets and they will vary by mfg and lot I just miked a few and averaged .224.
The case diameter and length are another matter and totally different. Suffice it to say you can not load a 22 magnum into a 22lr chamber.

ALAN, gaining knowledge is a large measure of the sport of shooting and hunting. I assume you are a young hunter and this is your first rifle. Seeing all the different makes and varieties of ".22 ammo" can be confusing. I must confess I was picking up some ammo a few months ago and saw a good price on a .17 caliber ammo I was looking for as well as .22. It wasn't until I got home I discovered I picked up a box of .17 BMag instead of .17HMR. I don't even know anyone that has a .17 Bmag to give them to.

When I started hunting in 1951, Remington, Winchester and a couple other hardware company brands were about all brands of .22 that were available in the hardware stores. .22 shorts and longs were also common as many of the autoloaders and pumps/lever actions would shoot all three. Shorts and longs were a dime or two cheaper than the long rifle. Of course, single shots would shoot any of the 3 as well. Shorts and longs now cost more than .22 LR.

Life was simpler then. RFC is a wealth of information available to you as well as outdoor magazines, You Tube, TV, and even the library. Have fun and learn firearm safety and handling.

There is an abundance of varieties of 22 Long Rifle (not long range) ammunition available, all of which should be safe to shoot in your deluxe sporter. I am going to assume that you are referring to a Ruger 10/22 Deluxe Sporter. There are loads that are sub sonic at about 700 feet per second, and may not function reliably in your semi-auto. Standard velocity stuff at around 1000-1100 FPS. most of these should function just fine. High velocity stuff at 1200-1300 FPS, which include the CCI Mini Mag. Do not confuse these with the 22WMR (Winchester Magnum Rimfire), it is a larger more powerful cartridge. The Mini-Mag is perfectly safe to shoot in modern rifles like your 10/22. There is hyper velocity stuff like the CCI Stinger and Velocitor which should also be safe to fire in the 10/22 as well.
As long as the box says that it is 22 LR or Long Rifle it should be safe to fire in your gun.

I think the first thing to know is... exactly what caliber is marked on your gun!!!! Sporter deluxe really doesn’t tell me enough to start recommending what ammo to shoot in your gun...

Is it a 22LR or is it a 22WMR

Ok, I see you have a Ruger 10/22 in the thread above.
You will find .22 LR or .22 Long Rifle on the left side of the barrel! It is designed to function properly only with .22 Long Rifle (.22 LR) ammunition.

Have fun with that rifle!

2 years ago my fish camp neighbor gave me a box of 22 mags he inadvertently bought for his new 22rf pistol he bought for self defense. It happens more than we know with those who don't know.
I don't own a 22mag but will find a home for em to someone some day.
