.22 Short Ammunition

Also known as: 22 Short

Originally designed for the Smith and Wesson revolver in 1857, the .22 short was the first American metallic cartridge. It was developed for use in self-defense and is still sometimes used in mini-revolvers and pocket pistols. This provides a quiet round that is a good choice for practice shooting on the range. Up until 2004, it was used for the Olympic 25 Meter Rapid Fire Pistol event. Today, most .22 short bullets are built from lead in a hollow point design. When used with 29 grain bullets, it has a velocity of 1,045 feet per second in a 22 inch rifle barrel. It is mostly used for hunting squirrels, raccoons, and rabbits, but hunters generally prefer the .22 LR because of the wider availability of options.
