.22WMR bullets are not heeled. .22WMR rounds can't be shot in .22LR guns because the cartridges won't chamber (they're too long and larger in diameter).

In addition, .22WMR bullets are slightly larger than .22LR bullets and are jacketed which makes them a less than ideal fit for a .22LR bore even if one were to modify a .22LR chamber to accommodate the .22WMR cartridges.

Finally, the .22WMR cartridge is considerably more powerful than the .22LR which would make it unsafe in semi-auto actions designed for the .22LR and possibly in other actions as well--again, even if one were to modify the chamber so the rounds would chamber.
