With a 43 gr (2.8 g; 0.098 oz) outside lubricated bullet over 5 gr (0.32 g; 0.011 oz) of black powder, it is similar in appearance to the .22 Short. Its power is comparable to the black powder loadings of the .22 Long Rifle. It was available from both Remington and Winchester.
The round continued to be commercially available until 1920, but is now considered a collectible.
