.22 Special-Which of these calibers, the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire or the .22 Winchester Single Shot, center fire, is known as the 22 Special, or is there no such cartridge?
There is no such cartridge as the .22 Special, anyway the cartridge makers have never named one so, but many people call the .22 Winchester Rimfire Magnum the .22 Special, because it has a shell of larger diameter than the others and can only be used in rifles chambered purposely for it. It is that cartridge that is meant.
