.22 Short Ammo

In Stock .22 Short Ammo Sale From Various Ammo Retailers

.22 Short is a variety of .22 caliber rimfire ammunition. Developed in 1857 for the first Smith & Wesson revolver, the .22 rimfire was the first American metallic cartridge.

The .22 Short saw a great deal of use in shooting galleries, which were widespread from the late 19th century until the mid 20th century. With a very mild report, no recoil, and sufficient accuracy, the .22 Short had a reputation for being able to take small game and control pests.

.22 Short isn’t the best round for self-defense, it’s certainly better than nothing. You can kill someone with it, but the stopping power is a whole other matter.
