    "New Line" in .22 RF

    Help me out here please - I sure want to know more about these.

    .22 RF - and I take that to mean whatever they had going then, which I think would have been .22 Long Black Powder, and shorter.

    Are present day ".22 Short" safe for this Revolver?

    Or, does one have to load one's own, in BP?

    Use .22 Short CB Caps and you'll be fine.

    A word of caution, 22 short is not the same as 22 CB cap. The way I understand it the CB cap uses only a primer as propellant and 22 short has smokeless powder. I’d think the CB cap would be fine but I’m not sure about the shorts.

    I had one of those and shot it with Aguila Colibri .22 ammo, which has even less pressure than .22 CB shorts. CB shorts are ok, but as others have said, do not use regular .22 shorts.

    My New Lines are in the range of 140 -145 yrs. old, and the .22s are brass framed to boot. It would be a cold day in hell before I'd put any smokeless rounds through them..

    To each his own. I would never encourage anyone to do anything they think is dangerous. However, you guys have apparently never made or shot a zip gun
