A Question About .22LR

Relatively new gun owner here, so this may sound rather stupid. I received a .22 rifle for Christmas, and with it several boxes of ammo of multiple makes. I have two boxes of Remington Cyclone High Velocities and while loading them noticed on one of them that the bullet itself was rotating freely within the jacket. Thinking it was a defect in the singular bullet I set it aside, but found out that all of them are doing the same. None of the other boxes have rounds that do this, just the Cyclones. Is this normal for this brand?

I've seen this on Remington before. As long as the bullet won't move in or out of the casing by hand, I'd personally shoot it.

Congrats on your new rifle and welcome to the forum.

Though it's not the norm, it is very common for .22lr bullets to spin in the case. Shoot'em up!

Pretty common with some brands of ammo. They will shoot just fine.

Just check the box for any loose powder that "could" have fell out. You don't want a squib round plugging the barrel.

If they are bulk packs of .22 ammo, I would sort through them before shooting them. The spinning bullets would be OK to shoot, but bulk packs I've bought, more often than not, have damaged rounds with dented or bent cases that will mis-feed in in your semi auto. I buy a lot of bulk packs and I sort through them before firing them. I've sometimes found as many as 8 damaged rounds in a pack. After a quick sort, they give me very little trouble afterwards...

Clean the rifle before shooting it. It is common to take a new gun and have a bunch cycling issues and think something is wrong with the gun or the ammo and the real issue is it isn't clean. With that done take those boxes to the range and see what the gun likes best.

I noticed this in a bulk box of Remington Golden bullets, they wiggle so much I thought they were defective. They work fine in my semiauto guns, but are not too accurate in my revolvers.

I've had this in the past on some .22 ammo. Never had a problem with them.
