I don't get it. Subsonic? Got any specs? Or is it Photoshop? IYSDP, how do you dig all this up?

Looks like 22 rimfires just with 22 caliber projectiles you'd expect on a 223. Tell me when you reload one with a vmax 40gr.

It looks to me like Imbro took 2 .223 bullets and stuck them into fired .22lr cases. If they are real, I'd like to know where I can get about 5,000 of the 62gr type.

Any standard .22 rifle can shoot them? I'd like to try them out.

I'd like to know how someone could increase projectile weight 38% and muzzle velocity 67% without any increase in case size. That might be more chamber pressure than a 10/22 can handle. [>:/]

Hi Imbo, That's an old joke, but still amusing. First saw it about 6 years ago, they also had a .17 rimfire and some other weird mutant-cartridges.... Ciao bello, RG.nl

Sorry, I can't seem to get the picture when I open this. Could you be talking about the 22 ILARCO / 22 Short Magnum Rimfire? It was a 22 WMR shortened to the same length as the 22LR so it could work in the Illinois Arms Company's Model 180 Subgun. If you have one of these don't damage it - it's a collectors piece!!!

"Using loading technology similar to that implemented in Hornady "Light Magnum" ammunition, the .22 RTAC achieves in a smaller cartridge, velocity and stopping power superior to .22 Win Magnum."

Can we have the URL of the producer?

Hey, I opened it up this morning and there was the picture. It's not the 22 ILARCO but looks like the same idea. Is there a possibility that this might be available from a manufacturer? There have been a many people who voiced a desire to have a conversion kit similar to the Ciener 22LR conversion unit for AR's that would work with 22 magnums. The big problem is finding a good magazine. If the cartridge you have in the picture was made with a 40 gr. bullet and was the same over-all length as the 22LR there would be no problem - and Ciener still has 30 round mags available! Is there a manufacturer available for this round?
