The .22LR is a very low powered round, especially when compared to the more common [[5.56mm round|5.56mm]], [[.308 round (Fallout: New Vegas)|.308]], [[.44 Magnum round (Fallout: New Vegas)|.44]] or [[.45 Auto]] cartridges that are also used in the post-[[Great War|War]] world. The .22LR was used as a commercial small game hunting round, but wasn't as common on the [[East Coast]] as the [[.32 caliber round|.32]]. It has a self-contained ''"rimfire"'' primer and thus cannot be broken down to gain small pistol primers, nor can it be crafted.

===.22LR, plinking===
Plinking is an [[Wikipedia:onomatopoetic|onomatopoetic]] name, referring to the metallic ''"plinking"'' sound of the ammunition as it hits tin cans or other, similar objects. Though less harmful than standard .22-caliber ammunition, plinking ammunition can usually be found in abundance. A single box of .22LR plinking ammunition will spawn 100 rounds when added to the [[Courier]]'s [[inventory]].

The [[Junk Rounds]] [[Fallout: New Vegas perks|perk]] from the ''[[Dead Money]]'' [[Fallout: New Vegas add-ons|add-on]] was at one point intended to create ammunition of a special subtype, called ''"junk"'' or ''"JNK,"'' these rounds all provided the same modifiers regardless of caliber: x 0.75 to [[damage]] and 1.5x to [[condition]]. The rounds still remain present in game files but are not utilized within the game itself and if obtained, cannot be used in any weapons, even those chambered for the correct caliber.

The presence of .22LR-caliber junk rounds indicates that the perk was to provide a recipe for crafting .22LR rounds, though the final version of the perk does not include one.

During development, the [[varmint rifle]] was meant to be chambered for the .22LR round, which would have made the ammunition much more commonly available. However, the inherent reduced limb damage penalty for .22LR rounds (prior to [[Fallout: New Vegas patch 1.3.0.452|patch 1.3.0.4xx]]) made the weapon so unpopular that "no one wanted to use it," according to [[J.E. Sawyer]]. The weapon was changed to a 5.56mm/[[.223 round|.223]] weapon instead.<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20130209011941/formspring.me/JESawyer/q/258329059178582244][[Joshua Sawyer]]</ref>
