{{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}} {{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} The .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire (5.6×27mmR), more commonly called .22 WMR, .22 Magnum, or simply .22 Mag, is a rimfire cartridge. Originally loaded with a bullet weight of {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} delivering velocities in the {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} range from a rifle barrel, .22 WMR has also been loaded with bullet weights of {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} at {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} and {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} at {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}}. More recently, a high-quality 30gr Vmax cartridge from Hornady has been released. This exceeds 2200fps in a rifle and has a reputation for much greater consistency and accuracy than was previously attributed to this calibre. Accuracy around 1 MOA is achievable and this has led to this cartridge regaining ground previously lost to the excellent .17 HMR, especially as the 30gr bullet weight (nearly double that of the HMR's normal 17gr) gives it a reputation for hitting harder on larger varmints such as fox and coyote.
