Need help!!!!!!!!!what ammo should i use

I have recently been given a .22 rifle by my cousin.the problem is that i dont know what ammo to buy.the gun reads: .22 instead of .22LR. i wasnt sure what to think because usually rifles take .22LR instead of the .22 used in most pistols.what do you guys thin i should buy?

Make/Model of the rifle in question would help.

The 22 used in most pistols is 22lr. If it's an older rifle, 22 short or even 22 long is possible, but 22lr has been the most popular for a long time.

I'm pretty sure it is a Romanian trainer. That should mean .22lr will be fine, but I will wait for someone who has more experience with one to share. The last time that I shot one was about 6 years ago so I'm not 100% sure.

ETA: There ya go, nimbleVagrant beat me to it by a minute

Try 5 and see if it still has room for more. If not, then it holds 5 rounds. If it will take more, load the magazine and find out how many fit in it. It's a gun, not a nuclear reactor, it's pretty simple.

No worries, just take it out and shoot it some. Rifles are easy, especially bolt actions!
