    Just bought the 6.5-in. barrel version for some plinking and pest control. Unlike other revolvers I've owned, the cylinder is a lot longer than a .22LR shell. Haven't tried, but I think it's long enough that a .22WMR would fit. The gun isn't marked for .22WMR but is heavy and very robust. The manual is a joke and says nothing either way about magnums. Has anbody tried them in one of these?

    Good luck jamming one in the cylinder.

    So they must be larger in diameter than .22LR? Didn't think of that - have never messed with .22 magnum .

    Yes, .22 Mags are larger in diameter. A .22 LR uses a heeled bullet that has a case the same diameter as the bullet. The magnum is more like a standard cartridge where the bullet is seated inside of the casing. A .22LR can be fired in a magnum, not recommended, but it will usually split the case due to the difference in chamber dimensions.
