A buddy of mine called me this morning and asked me this question. I think the gun he is looking at is one of the eight shot Taurus revlovers.

No, WMR cases are wider as well as longer....a LR case would have no support.

Using the .22 mag cylinder in place will lead to erosion of the throat from bullet jump. In a pinch I am sure you can do it...

The .22lr will chamber and fire, but there's a possibility (?) that the case might split because the .22mag chamber is larger in diameter than a .22lr chamber.
On pistols chambered for both, like the Ruger Single Six, a seperate cylinder is used for each chambering. Guess I wouldn't do it as a standard practice.

Not Safe. No accidents, but 22 WMR is definatly not designed for 22LR is something I've learned the hard way.

They will shoot but cases will split. Probably not safe.

Isn't .22WMR a slightly larger bore than .22LR?

I have an NAA .22 mag that I shoot .22 LR through, is that not safe? It only came with the .22 mag cylinder, never seen any split brass or anything.

I don't swith cylinders in my Single Six and never have had a problem and .22lr is just as accurate as the magnum is.

The diameter of the case isn't the same. I don't know if it's dangerous in your gun, but I wouldn't do it.

The chamber and bore on a .22 WMR is bigger than .22 LR. A fired .22 LR case will fit snugly in a fired .22 WMR case. Try it sometime.

So even if it does go off without issue, it's gonna rattle down the pipe and come out all crooked-ass.

That's what I thought.

Yes, after a days shooting 22lr from my single six I noticed I had the wrong cylinder in the gun. I found this when going to change it to shoot mags.
