The .22 Long is a variety of .22 caliber (5.6 mm) rimfire ammunition, introduced in 1871. It was designed for use in revolvers, but was soon chambered in rifles as well, in which it gained a strong reputation as a small game cartridge, and sold very well.
For 15 years, the .22 Long was the most potent .22 rimfire cartridge. It was later supplanted by the .22 Long Rifle, which fired a heavier bullet and was propelled by a more powerful charge.
With a speed of about 1,040 feet per second and muzzle energy of about 67-foot pounds – the .22 Long has been popular enough for Winchester and CCI to continue producing ammunition in sufficient amounts, also making it relatively easy to find.
