|machine tom||A 22 LR is a no go in both guns, on the H&R it protrudes almost 1/4" from the cylinder,r on the H&A protrude about .02". My question is regarding 22 shorts. The H&R is so small and lightly made, a cap gun looks heavy duty compared to it.|

Here's an article about Black powder 22's, looks like they were about 1100 or so fps.
also found an article about loading your own 22 RIMFIRE, a source for empty primed cases.

Yes, don't dry fire a 22.
I wonder what speed the black powder 22's had?
I know the 32 and 36 S&W were originally black powder and ran around 600 fps
if I recall correctly, probably in that ball park.
