This question seems to pop up regularly, but I don't recall any iron-clad answers. Just went and checked some Federal .22 mags and .22LR in the shop and here's what I found: the mag and the LR had the same diameter projectile, but the mag had a jacket, so concievably could be slightly higher pressure to push it down the barrel. The LR case rim was .271 inches and the mag case was .287 inches, didn't compare the length so you might have a fit problem in the action. I wouldn't do it, but that's just me. Here endeth the epistle. Goatwhiskers the Elder
