Actual Picture Of 22 Bulleted Breech Cap Cartridge22 Bulleted Breech Cap: (.22BB)
 The .22 Bulleted Breech Cap is a .22" caliber rimfire cartridge, .22 BB cap and .22 CB refer to cartridges that are low velocity and project reduced noise. These rimfires closely resemble a .22 caliber air rifle in power and are often used for indoor shooting and close range pest control. Developed for indoor shooting galleries with special "rimfire gallery guns", the .22 BB Cap was the first rimfire cartridge, dating back to 1845. It has no separate propellant charge, relying on the impulse created by the primer alone to fire a round lead ball.
Cartridge case length is .284".
