no, the chamber isn't long enough, thats like trying to shoot a 31/2 shell out of a shotgun with a 3in chamber.

no, putting a 22mag in a 22short/long could have bad conceqences, hurt your gun, and more importantly you.

Chamber isn't just too short, its too tight. A cartridge won't even slide in (suppose you could force it). But no, its not safe even if you got one into the gun.

I noticed you posted your message at 12:57am and didn't get a response until 4:42am...hope it was fast enough and got to you before you tried! Definately a bad thing..

:o And please don't do it the other way around either. .22LR in a .22WMR chamber really isn't a good idea. ;)
