    Can someone explain why I can or can not shoot .22lr out of a .22wmr chamber? (A model 93 savage bolt action rifle) and yes I know they won't feed from the magazine and have to be single shot fed.

    While we are at it; can .22 shorts be used in .22lr or .22wmr chambers?


    Thanks!

    Hmm, who'd of thunk. I'll check wiki next time before I post. Thanks for the heads up.

    Wiki's right...this time.

    Problem with Wiki is, It's right often enough that you can't ignore it, but wrong often enough that you can't trust it.
