22 WRF



Log in to see fewer ads
I came across some of this and as I have never seen it before am wondering if it can be safely shot in a S&W M48 22 WRM handgun.

You might want to edit this post GSPFan.

I believe from our discussions that you have a S&W M48 .22 Mag (WMR) and you've located a box of .22 Winchester rimfire (WRF) and want to know if it's safe to shoot in your pistol.

The answer is yes, you can shoot WRF in a WMR chamber. May not be the most accurate but it's safe to fire.

Cheers,

Frank

I used to do it all the time with a Colt New Frontier .22 magnum. Less roar than a magnum, more thump than a long rifle. Now Winchester has their reduced velocity .22 magnum that does the same thing.

It's sorta like shooting .38 Spl. in a .357 Magnum. From all I've read on the subject there's no reason it shouldn't be just as accurate as .22 WRM loads.

Worked great in my Super Single Six.

Safe, but remember the case is shorter than 22WMR so you'll have carbon build-up in the chamber so you want to be sure to clean that really well before using 22WMR again or you could run into an overpressure situation..
