CCI .22 Shot Shells in a 10/22???



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all,

Perhaps someone could enlighten a newcomer to .22's, but what would happen if you tried using .22 shotshells in a rifle like a 10/22, instead of a pistol???

I saw them at here www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=289683 but the specs on mention muzzle velocity on 5" or 6" barrels.

Would it be dangerous? Effective against anything? Or just a waste of ammo?

Thanks for any input or experiences or advice!

22LR Shot Shells

NY'er,

I don't think you would damage the gun. I doubt the bolt would cycle.
And the barrel would likely be full of crud after shooting them.

As far as GAME, you might take out rats in a barn or birds at VERY
close range. I would not trust them to kill a snake unless you were
within arm's length (too close).

I have used them in a Bolt Action 22 rifle. I have not used them in a 10/22
or a handgun.

I have used 38 Special shot shells. I happened to notice that they spread
to about the width of a door at six or seven feet. Let me speculate that
an intruder would be miserable but not disabled.

In case you did not get my drift - I don't have much use for or
confidence in 22 LR (or 38 Special) shot shells.

I used them in my 10/22, at about 10 feet, they have enough power to punch through an empty soda can. I used them near a pond to shoot down dragonflies, great fun, very tough!

They will not cycle in my stock 10/22.

They shoot great in my Savage 22 smoothbore bolt action single shot. But then they are supposed to shoot in a smoothbore.

Wouldn't cycle in my 10/22. Fine for snakes, rats, and chipmunks at close range.
