AFAIK they are two names for the same round.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>7) The .22 Magnum (WMR - Winchester Magnum Rimfire) has a case length of 1.052 inches and an overall length of 1.35 inches. The .22 Magnum cartridge has a larger case diameter than the other 1 through 6 listed above, thus one should not shoot any other rimfire cartridge in a firearm designed for a .22 Magnum. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
