Actual Picture Of 22 Long Rifle Cartridge22 Long Rifle: (.22LR)
 The .22 Long Rifle is a .22" caliber rimfire cartridge that is well established with a very large variety of bullet weights and ammunition loadings, and in terms of units sold is still by far the most common cartridge in the world today. The .22 Long Rifle rimfire is a heavier loading of the .22 Long case and appeared in 1887, along with the first smokeless powder loadings of the .22 rimfires. It is one of the few cartridges that are accepted by a large variety of rifles, as well as pistols. Virtually every manufacturer of cartridge firearms makes at least one model chambering it, and this has been true for more than a century.
Cartridge case length is .595".
