This he was doing one morning with a 22-calibre rifle.
"Animal Heroes" by Ernest Thompson Seton
Old Man Hooper, armed with a .22 calibre rifle, was prowling along the willows in which fluttered a small band of migratory birds.

The cap had a 22-calibre bullet hole through the crown; and Pritchard was armed with a 22-calibre rifle.

The Colt .22 calibre revolver is very nice for ladies' use.
"Automatic Pistol Shooting" by Walter Winans
There are conical ball .22-calibre cartridges in the market with very thick, irregular heads.

In news:

Robin Kepple, spokesperson for the Casper Game and Fish offices says the animal was shot with a small calibre rifle and found dead off of 55 Ranch Road in Hunt Area 22.
A 22-calibre Browning gun found by a customer in Abba Biya's second- hand furniture shop in Toronto.

In science:

We have calibrated this offset using 22 galaxies commonly observed with both 2MASS and UKIRT to match UKIRT K mag to 2MASS K mag. K band magnitudes are K -corrected using Mannucci et al. (2001).
Are Passive Spiral Galaxies Truly "Passive" and "Spiral"? : Near-Infrared Perspective
We imaged the calibrated data with the AIPS task IMAGR; Fig. 1 shows example images at 22 GHz from the middle epoch.
The Distance and Size of the Red Hypergiant NML Cyg from VLBA and VLA Astrometry
The covariance matrix associated with this calibration is given in tables 23 and 22.
Improved Photometric Calibration of the SNLS and the SDSS Supernova Surveys
The weighted mean luminosities of the 10 calibrators of MB = −19.49, MV = −19.46, and MI = −19.22 (Table 4) are based on metallicity-corrected Cepheid distances (Paper IV) from the new P -L relations of the Galaxy and LMC (Paper I & II).
The Hubble Constant: A Summary of the HST Program for the Luminosity Calibration of Type Ia Supernovae by Means of Cepheids
Calibration using 109Cd source between the two detectors used in the present work (Detector A, filled circle) and in the previous work (Detector B, filled triangle) . The detecting efficiency differs by a factor of 3.834±0.001 at 22 keV.
Cooling effect in emissions of 103mRh excited by bremsstrahlung
Due to the existence of a Period-Luminosity relation, they allow the calibration of the SNIa till distances out to 22 Mpc (e.g., Freedman et al. 2001).
Working Group Summary - Local Universe
Other models, like the “multi-scale” GARCH [22, 35], point in the same direction: when these models are calibrated on financial data, the parameters are always found to be very close to the limit of stability of the model (see for a discussion of this point).
Goodness-of-Fit tests with Dependent Observations
The present systematic uncertainty is of 22%, dominated by uncertainties in the fluorescence yield, absolute FD calibration and reconstruction and in the atmospheric attenuation and scattering.
Results of the Pierre Auger Observatory on Astroparticle Physics
This release provides reliable, well-calibrated catalogs down to r ∼ 22.5 over 14,500 square degrees of sky in five bands (u, g, r, i and z ).
Improved background subtraction for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey images
Of course, once calibrated, chaos models of different orders give rise to very different future term structures: a deterministic one with PtT = P0T /P0t for first chaos models and a fully stochastic one where PtT is given by (3.22) for factorizable second chaos models, for example.
Calibration of Chaotic Models for Interest Rates
The work by Connolly et al. (1995) demonstrates that galaxies brighter than I = 22.5 can easily be calibrated using spectroscopic redshifts and that photometric information in 4 different filters constrain the redshift of these galaxies with an accuracy of about ∆zs ≈ 0.4.
