To answer your question right off. No.

A few years ago I got introduced to Otis cleaning kits. It uses pull through cables. One small puck sized kit has all the jags and different size and length cables to clean most common calibers.

Pro Shot makes quality products, I have a couple of their rods and they are well made. The slim handles clear the stock on long barreled rifles.

I have several in 20 & 22 cal for different CF rifles, along with RF rifles. I usually keep one with a jag attached, and one with a brush attached so I don't have to swap 'em out when being used. Good product, good quality.

Pro shot cleaning rod

I have one in 20 caliber for my 22 rifles for some have tighter barrels so the 20 will no hit the barrel and the ejector.
Also make sure you don't get one any longer than needed to reduce flex and bending.
I also have short pistol rod and they are very well made.

Get a bore guide and you really should get one a bit longer in case you add a tuner later on

I have several and recommend them. Their jags, brushes and patches are also excellent.

A rod guide is essential for these small bore rifles. The rods are too thin to be rigid enough without one.

Pro Shot is a top quality product with absolutely no down side. Great rigidity. They offer a neat little cone shape bore guide the goes over the muzzle when cleaning from the front. There is no plastic coating that subtracts from the metal thickness and can hold abrasive dirt. The rod with a down side is the dewey. That is another good rod, but Pro Shot is better.

You can use the 20 cal rod for a little added clearance in a 22 bore. But,the 20 cal rod is set for smaller diameter screw in brushes. That requires and adaptor. The advantage is easier to center using fingers instead of a bore guide. That is kind of a down side to the whole sub 22 universe.

My no so humble opinion. IMHO, ha....
