Can you use .22 mini magnums in a ruger 10/22? What about other types of 22 ammo?

Any of the .22Long Rifle cartridges are fine. The CCI Mini-Mags are .22 Long Rifle.

The Ruger 10/22 will cycle any .22 long rifle. CCI Mini-Mags are just a regular long rifle cartridges. You cannot fire .22 WMR (.22 magnum) as the rounds are longer, and slightly larger in diameter.

not many rifle repeaters in .22 mag. You get to shoot .22lr. Run the gambit from 1030 fps to Aguila's 1700+ fps. Low velocity rounds may have issue with the cycling.
