I know this used to be a concern with corrosive-primed, and/or blackpowder ammo, but has anyone out there ever REALLY experienced "chamber ringing" or damage to a LR chamber from shooting .22 shorts ?

In over 30 years of shooting (which includes lots and lots of .22 shorts) I've never seen a hint of it in any of my .22s. And I'm not a gun cleaning fanatic. Generally, my guns get the gun string or bore snake every 2-3 bricks of ammo.

And if it really does happen, why doesn't it happen in revolvers shooting .22LR ? If "ringing" occurs, it would easily show up in revolvers, right ? Or for that matter, why doesn't the same phenom "ring" the throat of all guns shooting LRs ?
