22 Long Ammo
The .22 Long Ammo is a variety of .22 caliber Ammo that use rimfire cartridges. The .22 Long Ammo was introduced to the markets in 1871 and is the second oldest rimfire cartridge to survive until the present. The .22 Long Ammo was originally intended to be used in revolvers but was later chambered in rifles, which was the main reason it gained popularity and sold well. The cartridge was paired with rifles mainly used to hunt down small game. In 1887, the .22 Long Ammo was given a heavier variant loaded with a 40-grain bullet which produced the .22 Long Rifle Ammo, which delivered a superior performance than the .22 Long Ammo in terms of higher muzzle energy and shot power. The overall length of the .22 Long Ammo is 22.6mm, and the bullet diameter measures 5.6mm. The 29-grain bullet of the .22 Long Ammo can travel at a velocity of 1,038 feet per second while creating an energy level of 67ft.lbf.
The .22 Long Ammo was based on the .22 Short Ammo. It was first designed and developed in 1871 initially to be used in revolvers.
The .22 Long Ammo provides a soft recoil and precise accuracy to the shooter, making it an ideal choice for target shooting, small game hunting, and pest control purposes.
