The bullet is very close to the same diameter, but the shell case is not.

The 22 magnum bullet is inside the case like a centerfire bullet. The 22 magnum case is tapered.

The 22LR is "heeled" - the narroe part in in the case; the part outside the case is the same diameter as the case. the case is not tapered.
