Yes you can. CCI company marketing for their high velocity .22 LR ammo.

A .22 Hornet can not be shot out of a .22 LR, unless you are talking about a .22 LR that is marketed under the name Hornet. If its the actual chambering of a .22 Hornet then you are talking about a centerfire cartridge that has much more oomph behind it than say a .22 LR.

Like the others have said, the .22 LR Mini-mag is just a high velocity .22 LR that is marketed under the name Mini-Mag. I am not sure about 10/22's but you may also be able to shoot hyper velocity loads through it as well. I know my Marlin 795 you can not shoot hyper velocity loads through it, or atleast Marlin advices not to do so.

The 22Hyper Velocity and the 22Mini-Mag are one and the same. one by Remington and one by CCI.

And the 22Hornet CAN-NOT be used in a 10/22Ruger.

You can shoot all of the available 22 long rifle loads through your 10/22 including the hyper velocity rounds that go by various brand names.

The guys are correct.

.22 Hornet is centerfire
.22 LR is rimfire.

Ruger does build a .22 Hornet rifle. Very nice, very accurate. The Hornet is lots of fun to reload because it's very finicky.

Not all available 22lr can be used. The Ruger 10/22 manual says do not use 22lr stingers because they have a longer case than d 22lr. They can stick in the tighter chambers of target rifles which can result in a ruptured case and release of hot powder gasses and brass when fired
