About the Cartridge

The Stevens Arms Co. developed the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge from the .22 Long cartridge case developed 16 years earlier, with a 40 grain round nose bullet loaded to a higher velocity than the older 29 grain .22 Long bullet. Modern .22 Long Rifle High Velocity cartridges drive a 40 grain copper-plated bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1255 fps and muzzle energy of 140 ft-lbs from a rifle barrel. This rimfire cartridge has become the most popular sporting and target shooting cartridge in the world.

A brilliant .22 from a bygone era
By JakeTheSnake on 02 Jul 2023
This gem is one of my bucket list guns after shooting a friend’s at the range one day. Superb craftsmanship and accuracy unmatched by the .22 revolvers of today. When the gun is opened the shells are expelled all at once outward thanks to a brilliant spring mechanism. That was the moment I knew I had to have one.
