Armscor loads this round with the 22 Short’s original 29 grain projectile. The bullet has a lead core and copper plating, the latter of which is there to prevent very rapid fouling of the bore. Its muzzle velocity is peppery at 1,095 fps, so you can look forward to a flat enough trajectory for some sharpshooting. The Philippine manufacturer draws their own brass cases which they outfit with non-corrosive rimfire primers and clean-burning powder.
Can you fire 22 Short in a 22 LR firearm? Well, you can – but because the 22 Short is shorter than the 22 LR chamber, it’s not going to offer ideal accuracy. It’s also going to deposit more fouling that you’ll have to deal with. But plenty of shooters make it work just fine. Do also take care that 22 Short works better in 22 LR revolvers and bolt-action rifles. Semi-automatic 22 LR magazines won’t feed this ammo correctly.
