Elmer Keith talked about this round in a supplement to his book Sixguns 1961 edition,..I think he just called it a .22 centerfire instead of jet,...yeah that's too bad it didn't work better,I just love the .22 centerfires for varmints/small game!

John, I believe the best of the 22 centerfire rounds made for revolvers were the 22 Kay-Chuck and 22 Kay-Chuck standard. The difference being the standard used a shortened Hornet shell while the Kay-Chuck used a shortened K-Hornet shell. There was none of case backing out and tying up the cylinder that was so common in the Jet... I have a converted S&W K-frame in 22 Kay-Chuck with the
8 3/8" barrel. Using 2400 and 35 and 40gr bullets I achieved 200 to 300fps over the 22 rim fire mag. That was a worth while increase in velocity, however, the accuracy was only OK. I`am sure if I work on my handloads I could get better groups....
