Uses Since the .22 WMR generally uses the same weight bullets as the .22 Long Rifle, it is used in similar situations. The {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} .22 WMR at {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} retains the same velocity as a .22 LR at the muzzle, which can provide improved penetration at all ranges and more reliable expansion at longer ranges with expanding bullets.

If sighted in for maximum point blank range on a {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} high target, the {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} .22 WMR can reach ranges of nearly {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}}. This makes the .22 WMR an effective short to medium range varmint rifle cartridge. The relatively quiet report and negligible recoil also make it a very pleasant round to shoot for extended periods. The .22 WMR can take down small game such as rabbits, groundhogs, prairie dogs, foxes, racoons, and even coyotes at close range.{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[citation needed] }}
