Unusual(?) .22 Cartridges

Recommended Posts

My friend recently acquired some .22 rounds which came with a revolver he purchased.  When he described them to me he said the lead rounds were nearly if not actually as long as the casings themselves.  At first I thought they might be .22 shorts but no, these appear to be Long Rifle (LR) rounds.  Only, just as he said, the lead bullet is equal in length to the casing.  I have never seen .22 rounds like this.  I can only guess they are optimized for home defense where mass is more important than range.  Is this correct?  Are these rounds rare?

If it doesn't look like one of these ~ It could be "Homemade"

 

Anyone can fill a box.

Sounds like a 60 grain load. It's the front right in AJ's photo.

To all who replied:  Yes, it looks like a SSS.  Thanks! Never knew they existed until yesterday.

Aguila Super Subsonic.

Generally doesn't stabilize in standard twist barrels.
