    Well...I feel like an idiot

    So the other day I was on gunbot.net and some 22lr showed up for a decent per round price. I knew they would go fast, so I jumped all over it and bought some for my rifle. Well, after I finished up the transaction I went to look at it, and noticed that the 22lr bullets I just bought said they should only be fired in handguns. I was in such a hurry to finish the transaction before they sold out that I bought blindly. O well, guess i'll see if I can barter or sell them when they come in. (I don't own a 22 pistol)

    You have to be careful with them in a rifle but they may work. They are super quiet though.

    I shoot them in a single shot Stevens Favorite (Savage) all the time. They won't cycle a semi-auto but I've fed them into a 10-22 previously also. Always worked for me?

    ETA: Both those guns have less than 20" barrels.

    I've shot them through my rifles with no problems.

    Just double check between shots on the first few rounds.

    Best ammo you can get for indoor target practice.

    Were you shooting them out of bolt action or semi-auto? Did they cycle your semi-auto? My only .22 is a semi-auto (Mossberg 715T). I might still give them a try and do what Charlie did with his 10/22 and just feed them myself.

    Mostly in an old Ithaca single shot and a wards Westernfield bolt action(long barrel)

    They will definitely NOT cycle a semi auto. They have no powder and the only propellant is the primer.

    You can still shoot them in a semi auto, just have to cycle the action manually. Not sure if they will actually cycle through a 10/22 magazine but could be loaded individually.

    That's good ammo. Won't cycle in my 10-22, but do work just fine as a single shot round: Will not stick in the bore, and have killed two possums raiding the pet food without the neighbors being alarmed.

    Put the possums in the road, and someone ran over them. Just another case of road-kill. Buzzards cleaned them up by noon the next day. Go Green!
