Yes, barring any headspace issues, I would not see any reason why not.

I did some extensive testing on 22 LR ammo a few years back and found the CCI Mini Mags to be underpowered compared to most other brands. They market it as high performance but that's not what I found. I would shoot it in any gun in good shape.

Thanks for the replys. What about shooting yellow jackets and other hi velocity ammo in it.

Generally as long as the action is strong ( no head space issues) you'd be fine with just about anything.
