    >22 rimfire shot cartridges.

    Do they count against my .22 RF holding on ticket, or are they shot gun cartridges?
    "Nonsense! They couldn't hit an elephant at this dista.....................".

    Yes, count as ammo (if you are talking about the crimped shot filled 22lr ammo)

    So .22rf shot cartridges are section 1? You live and learn.
    If you were to own a .22 shotgun how do you buy ammo?

    but its not a shotgun.
    its rifle ammo

    designated by the .22lr chamber
    not by the ineffectual steel shot in the case

    Are you sure about this they have never been added to my FAC and I'm fairly certain the last time I bought some it was on a shotgun cert?

    Haven't bought any in 30 years but the last time I did they were regarded as shotgun ammo. The FAC would be regarded as authority to purchase just the same as a SGC would be, and they are not signed on to the ticket. Don't know for certain if anything has changed legally but I doubt very much if the things have become any better or useful other than for despatching mice at ten feet.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    They do not count against your FAC holding, they are shot shells, bugger all to do with chamber designation.
    Never seen a 22lr shotgun???? I have one at home.

    They are classed as shotgun cartridges, definitely not Sec.1 ammunition. .22RF smoothbore shotgun is not so rare as one may think.

    And what do they do? Sounds like they might scare a short range squirrel. it would be interesting to know the use they are designed for.
