Hi. I would like to drill out a rod and use it as a smooth-bore barrel in .22 lr. Should the bore of the barrel be slightly larger or slightly smaller than the .22 lr bullets? Would a 7/32 drill bit suffice for this job? This may be a stupid question but I have not been able to find any information about firing modern rounds out of smooth-bore barrels. I tried to relate it to slugs cycling through smooth bore shotguns but I could not find a satisfactory answer. Thank you in advance.

What are you trying to shoot?  Rats w/ rat shot?  Mice w/ solids?

What minimum bbl length do you need?  I'm building a .22 LR smoothbore myself - I don't need a minimum bbl length, but I have to make the chassis @ least 26" without a shoulder stock.

Welcome to Weaponeer, btw.  Got any Legos?

Hi. Primarily I would like to fire .22 lr solid bullets(fmj, frangible, hollowpoint etc). Chassis as in overall length of your firearm? I'm not sure what bbl or legos are

Chassis would be like pistol or rifle, wood or plastic etc. Bbl. is abbreviation for barrel. Legos are a child's toy he uses quite well.

turdwy, w/o rifling, your accuracy will be terrible.  If you build a strong enough locked breech, 7/32" drill should work - the bullets are going to swage into the bbl, increasing pressure.  But it's not very expensive to buy an 18" Ruger 10/22 bbl that comes already chambered.  You'll get much better accuracy out of any rifled bbl.

Just get a number 1 drill bit which is specked out to a diameter of .228. You will lose some gas but the soft lead might deform enough. If you cant find one, a quick search on google turned up squat for me, a 7/32 should work fine. Google squeezebore .22 or Myra extruder, both of which swaged the bullet regular down to .17 in an extended forcing cone. Just head their design cues and the other cues of squeezebores in general with regular information such as making sure the neck area is not too tight and the forcing cone is elongated enough. Google the first squeezebore rifle and you will see what I mean.

That was a fascinating trip across the Internet.  Myra Extruder, very curious.

I know you want to go smooth bore but this is worth a look for future reference.

I like squeezebores as I find them easier to build repeatably than sabots for a personal workshop like myself. Also a salvo squeezebore would allow for simulated full auto from a semiauto platform. Besides that research allows you to build smoothbores in various calibers and tell you how far you can swage a bullet down reliably. The littlejohn and german AT weapons where at 70 to 80% smaller diameter!

ETA:  Please let me know which of Mark Serbru's video links above works for you.  Ha ha!  Figgered out what I was doing wrong.  Our hamsters don't support https.
