ruger mark 4 and aguila super extra high velocity

anyone else having issues with aguila super extra high velocity 40 grain copper plated ammo while using with a mark 4 target and a mark 4 22/45 lite? when I load a mag up and try to chamber the first round the first round always hangs up. after that it works fine. also the ammo in the mags seem loose. just seeing if anyone else is experiencing this. this problem only happens with the aguila ammo.

I've been using this ammo for the past few months with no problems other than the a few failures to eject. I might get one failure per brick. It's relatively clean and very accurate.

I've had no problems with the first round. I just ordered 3 more bricks.

Its been perfect in my 22/45 mk3. Good tight groups at 10 15 yards. Spread out to 3.5" at 25. " at 50 yards in my 10/22. And cci std vel groupings of " at 50 out of my marlin model 60. Clean burning and nicely finished. Only ding is it can be a little pricy.

My 22/45 loves Aguila super extra. Shoots it better than CCI mini-mags.

One thing I have noticed is that Aguila super extra has a rather thick wax coating. That works great in very hot weather, but not always so well in temps below 70 degrees.

My solution was to the rub the tip of nose of the rounds on a towel as I am in the process of loading them. I also clean my magazines more often during colder weather. I have shot the Aguila in sub-freezing weather with cold mags and it was not a good experience. My opinion is that the wax on the nose of the Aguila can slow down the movement of the rounds in the magazine which can lead to some failures.

With all of this said, I really like Aguila super extra, at least when it is warm. Smells a bit odd, but I can live with that.

Sacrilege!
Just kidding. Shoot what your gun likes best. My Mark IV LOVES Mini Mags. I have had pretty good luck with the Aguila too.

Goldenpony,

For the longest time my 22/45 basically refused to consistently shoot any ammo other than CCI mini-mags, or the Aguila Super Extra. My 22/45 now has 10,000+ rounds through it and over the last several 1,000 rounds has started to cycle CCI standard velocity well also.

I have many .22 automatic and most have a favorite ammo, and not always are they the same.

I really like the looks and take down of the Mart IV, but will most likely never own one as I already own many Mark II's.

I understand. Now I owned a Mark II for over 20 years and loved it, except at cleaning time (I'm kind of anal and like to clean my guns fairly often.) When the Mark IV came out and I saw videos of the gun being disassembled and assembled, it was love at first sight. I was a good boy last year and Santa brought me a blue Target model Mark IV for Christmas. Even though I liked my Mark II, I sold it because I didn't see a need for 2 .22 semi auto pistols.
Since I got it I have done some upgrading to my IV and I can tell you this, it is an absolutely fantastic pistol and it has become my very favorite in my modest collection.
Incidentally, when I sold my Mark II I got over twice what I paid for it new. I had the original box and owners manual and the pistol was in pristine condition with upgraded Ruger wood grips. The purchaser was thrilled to get it. I would like to know if he has taken it down to clean it yet.

GP,

Glad you are enjoying yours. I sure wish Ruger had made the take-down change 20-years ago.

I have been taking Ruger Marks apart since 1981. It's just second nature to me. I'm too old to change I think.

Hey, maybe the Mark II's will become collectors items!!!!


packersfan,

CCI tactical does well in most of my semi-autos also. For a while it was easy for me to find when CCI mini-mags wasn't. I was glad to have it.

I ran a brick of the Aguila Super Extra 40gr copper through my MKIV last Saturday. It runs good in all my MKs. Like other MK's, it helps to make sure that top rpund in the magazine is pointed up a little when you insert the magazine to avoid that first round problem

Speed Shooter - GONRA bets yer recoil spring has shortened / weakened a bit after shootin' all that ammo.
Now "Standard Velocity" verks Just Fine.
Not that any of this Really Matters - firearm and various ammos all Verk!
Keep blasting away.....

Gonra,

I replaced my recoil spring at around 7,500 rounds. The pistol wasn't having any problems, but seemed like the spring might be getting weak. Replaced it with a Ruger factory standard part.

My 22/45 performs better now then when new. I would not have guessed that, but I suppose to some degree the parts wear-in and performance improves. This is the first Ruger semi-auto .22 that I have ever shot this many rounds through.

I have also replaced the extractor too a VQ edge, but that was done at around 2,000 rounds.
