    From what I have observed the OAL of the round is about the same as other 22 LR, and as the 22 LR head spaces on the rim not the case neck I think that eliminates the problem?
    again my take on it.
    I have known for decades that the stinger case is longer and surprisingly when I mention it to many gun freaks they argue that it can't be, until we compare the cases.
    OPPS-- I see bang bang has already addressed this!

    ahh- actually magnum, much like plus p is a pressure/ performance rating, not a case size.
    just saying.

    I've fired tens of thousands of Stinger rounds, but I never noticed the case length difference. Good thread, thanks.

    I can see the slightly longer Stinger case possibly causing ejection problems in an ejection port with very tight tolerances.

    However many of today's shooters don't shoot the quantity of rimfire ammo (we used to shoot when 500 rd bricks were $7) in the variety of different platforms to realize it is NOT 100% reliable due to it's method of priming.

    You'll get better results with much more expensive "Olympic Target Quality" .22 from Eley et al.

    Here is a comparison picture of a standard round with 2 other long rifle standard cases. I am also including a quote that directly addresses the length of the stinger round. Finally, I am including a link were you can go and read about it yourself. If you still insist that they are not longer I would suggest you call CCI customer service and they will explain it to you.

    "Using the bullet from a .22 Long—a 32-grain plated hollowpoint—and a longer case for greater powder capacity while still maintaining the same overall length as the standard .22 LR cartridge, the Stinger obtains a high muzzle velocity (1,640 fps) for a flat trajectory."

    Now go back and re-read what I wrote Don.

    The Stinger case is within .22lr spec. Again, if it wasn't, it wouldn't be able to eject. Other manufacturers, like the ones you have a pic of, have SHORTENED their 22lr casing in order to accommodate a large bullet. You are getting it backwards. The Stinger is not an elongated case, the others are shortened.

    Lets just all agree .22 rimfire firearms are "picky" as to which ammo they like.

    Did you not read the quote I put up in my last post? Did you go to the link I included and read about the stinger? Is the author of that article wrong about the length of the stinger case because you think he is wrong?

    Would I be wasting my time by pulling up and linking to other articles concerning this question because you think they are all wrong? If so please tell me now and save me some time.

    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    I've fired Eley in mine, and had some cycling issues - though the Eley was pretty old and was showing some white corrosion on the lead bullet (first time I'd seen corrosion on a bullet). The lube had broken down apparently.

    CCI Standard Velocity will do everything that Eley will do in a pistol of this type. It's the best mid-range ammo available IMO. Very few issues with quality control and the accuracy is surprisingly good for non-match round.

    🌙 dog said it best. Also why would anyone want to shoot a hot load in a 22 pistol? I believe they were just looking for trouble and got it.

    Agree with Don's Stinger and sketch's comments. We used very heavy and "overbuilt" 22 LR rifles on the rifle team in both high school and in college. But we used "Olympic" grade Remington ammo. You know it when you feel it as it is greasy as hell. But accurate as hell as well. We were given 3 shots to warm up our barrels and two more to zero the rifle for competition. And it was bolt action single shot so you had to finger load each round as you shot it. I personally don't shoot stingers - no need and I got "shot out" on 22 in my youth. And, last time I bought 22 in volume was a brick of 550 rounds for $5.
