Is there any reason that I couldn't just use .22CBs?
Do not try it.
It's just a .22 that uses the primer as the propellant.
6mm Flobert is not "just a .22 that uses the primer as a propellant". First off, 6mm Flobert is not even 22 caliber, it is 6mm, or .239" in diameter. Firing a CB cap in it may or may not cause problems, but either way, accuracy would be atrocious. Secondly, you can get the 22 CB cap stuck in the chamber and be unable to extract it without resorting to a cleaning rod. And finally, it is just a better idea to use the cartridge the rifle was chambered for.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
