Mark, I'd agree with your sentiments regarding the 'choot chit'
But also keep in mind the bore dimensions are slightly different in .22LR and .22WMR. This is why any handgun chambered and supplied with a WMR cylinder, will never reach any real commendable degree of accuracy when the LR cylinder is installed. The .22LR bore dimension is .223", while the 22WMR is .224".
So when shooting .22LR in a revolver originally intended for the .22WMR, the smaller LR bullet is .001" undersize for the bore of the weapon, and will in essence 'rattle' through the barrel with a side clearance of .0005", and never reach any high degree of accuracy as a result.
Revolvers chambered for both rounds are completely useful for general purposes, but the conflict mentioned above should explain the accuracy disparity issue in any brand of ammo you'd use in the revolver, especially .22LR.
Also being a fan of the .22WMR with multiple handguns and rifles chambered so, one of my fav's is my Smith M648 6" in .22WMR with a Leupold 4X handgun scope aboard. I've head-shot squirrels out to 50 yards, and body shots on chucks and a couple of coyotes past 100 yds. using CCI Maxi-Mag +V. A pic for fun:
Enjoy that little Ruger, it'll last you the rest of your life, and the caliber combination may be one of the best for what could lurk in our collective future. Utility at it's finest!
