    Yes there is nothing stopping you from buying .22 ammunition but you might like to look carefully at the legality of using your friend's rifle though. Have a look at the guidance to police document and also on the BASC website regarding borrowing/using rifles under the estate rifle exemption and read it carefully. If you don't intend buying a rifle have you considered having your friend's rifle signed on to your certificate as borrowed?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Read the guidance carefully, you don't want to get into any bother do you. To take advantage of the estate rifle exemption you will have to be under the control of your friend, how that is defined is not entirely clear in fact ACPO have asked for clarrification on this.
