Default .22 rounds

so... about the .22lr, why are they illegal all over the place to shoot?

I've heard it's something to do with rimfire (like most 22s) or centerfire (larger rounds), and then how ".22s ricochet off everything"

So, with all of this confusion this pro-2nd Amendment guy has having grown up in an anti-gun home, please explain.

Specific brand maybe? I've seen ranges ban Winchester white box ammo cuz it's crap. Damn bullets are loose in the shell, sometimes fall out.

Illegal? I just shot my cat with a 22lr. Maybe should have used a short to not bother the neighbors as much

Federal bulk is loose as well. In 1000+ rounds I've only had one short fire. I've never heard of what you're describing before....are you in Federal forest??

Maybe illegal because you are in the City Limits? But so is any other rifle/rimfire, so I dunno.


As far as ammo goes, stay away from the remmy golden bullets, they are the worst rimfire bullets I have ever bought. You want great quality, good accuracy, go with CCI mini-mags....both the 36gr HP's and the 40gr solid points are great. I have a few thousand of each in the safe.


1badzuk, you would be shocked how many people actually do that. I have read countless times of people using a .17hmr for deer, seems kinda sick to me....but I guess as long as you are accurate with it, any deer within 100 yards would never know what hit them.

must be a local thing... byron center supposedly you can't use a .22.

I know in hastings it's illegal to discharge a [as in any] firearm.
