Anybody know .22LR's??

I was going through my grandfather's old .22LR ammo and found this:






Anyone know what kind of cartride it is or what purpose it serves (varmit, target, frangible, etc.)?

it's bird shot, like a small shotgun shell for the .22.

A lot of people say it is bad for the gun, but if you would clean it after using it, I don't think it would do any lasting damage.

Use it for shooting birds (no not T-birds)

Hmm, I've never seen that in a non-mag .22 cartridge. Cool.

Its just basically a .22 shotshell. Pretty much useless. Stuff wont even break a glass bottle at any distance, yes I hit it lol. Good for taking out small pests though.

lol, I was using a .22 short to shoot squirrels out of my grandpa's pear trees. I had to use the shorts because his neighbors complain about the noise. Those stupid bullets drop about a foot over 50 yards or so. Worthless.

That's not the same as birdshot for a .22LR. Think of this as a .22 caliber shotgun.

The things used to drive nails are quite different.

Looks more like a .22LR blank to me.

Those are the ones for the power nailers. Those things are a lot of fun to use.
