.22 Long Rifle Only-Is a .22 caliber rifle, using the Short, Long and Long Rifle cartridges, as accurate and will it last as long as one which takes only one size of cartridge?
Such a rifle, if the rifling is correct for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge, is as accurate and durable as any, as long as you use the .22 Long Rifle cartridge only. But the .22 short and .22 long will not give as good results in it as in rifles chambered and rifled purposely for them, and what is more, they will ruin such a rifle for use of the.22 Long Rifle. If you want to use the .22 short or the .22 Long, get a rifle made for the cartridge you want to use, and if you get one made for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge, use that cartridge only.
A .22 Long Rifle cartridge will do everything that a .22 short will do, and then some. It is far better than the .22 Short or the .22 Long for hunting, and if your rifle is made for the Long Rifle cartridge there is never any need of using the short.
