.22 Misfires

Is it me or are there more misfires in .22 ammo today than there used to be. I just got back from the range with 2 Ruger 22/45's and my new Sig 1911 .22. I was shooting Winchester bulk and getting a misfire about every 10th round in all 3 (clean) guns. I switched to CCI Mini Mags and had 2 misfires out of 50 rounds there. I then tried CCI Stingers and had 1 misfire in a box of 50. This is all ammo that has been bought fresh in the last 3 months and I store it in a cool dry atmosphere. It seens like when I was a kid, with my Remington 572 Fieldmaster pump, I never had misfores.

I have never had a misfire out of my 2 Mark III, I have only fired approx. 1000 rounds of Federal Bulk Pack from Wally World but it always fires.
Good Luck!

Had the same thing last week with my 22/45. WWB ammo (which I'm not a fan of anyway), but I had more than usual. I thought it was just thw winjunkster's but maybe not.

I had the same problem with some Remington .22 thunderbolts of course mine are all from before the year 2000. so i thought it was just old. but mine averaged about 1 FTF every 15 rounds.

I've had more problems with junky ammo feeding poorly, than I have misfiring.

I have had good luck with Federal Target that I get at Walmart. Fires without problem in my two Mark III's and my S&W 22a-1.

I'm fairly new to the .22 family, but I've fed probably 1500 rounds of Fed bulk 525round packs through my 10/22 since I bought it about 3 months ago and never had a misfire, feeding problem, or ejection problem. I have had problems with it feeding in my S&W M&P15 with the CMMG .22lr conversion, but I think it's the conversion and not the ammo.

MKIII 22/45 + CCI ammo = not one missfire yet.

I get a good amount of misfires and FTE with Remington Thunderbolt. It also seems like it fires really dirty. I've had better luck with Federal Lightning.

My Standard and 22/45 will eat anything reliably. Have had a few misfires with Winchester, maybe 2 per 100, but it usually works the second time through.

I have a conversion kits for my Sig 226, and I've tried all kinds of stuff and it didn't like anything. Bought a brick of the Federal 525 at Wally World and it's gobbling it down like M&Ms. Goes bang every time, no misfeeds, no misfires.

In the interest of full disclosure I NEVER feed any gun anything with a Remington label.

I went back to the range today with a buddy. He had a box of CCI mine mags and a brick of remington goldens. He had 2 misfires with the mini mag in a new Walther and one misfire with his Ruger Mark III using remington. For a change I didn't have any misfires today. I am not sure how many rounds he fired, but I still remember in years gone by a mis fire was almost unheard of.

I've had the same experience with the WallyWorld Federal 525 bricks, stuff just runs almost flawlessly.
Can't say the same for the Winchester bulk stuff, not as many duds as some have reported but maybe about 1 in 50-100.

I used to "clean" my rimfires and then gripe about misfires. I was sure that I was getting bogus .22LR bulk ammo that hadn't had the primer material spun into the rim of the brass, causing dead spots where the firing pin strikes.

On my Mk-I, it seemed to be an intermittent problem and I was getting really frustrated. Until, one day, I was looking at the breach and chamber under a powerful lighted magnifier on my workbench. There seemed to be a fat ugly gusset in the 90 degree corner of the reciever where the bolt and breach face meet. That "gussett" was a build up of waxy soot from the bulk ammo I had been shooting. And, it was keeping the bolt from going its full travel into battery. It was just enough to cause light primer strikes.

I now clean that gunk out with a plastic scribe, as well as doing the same with the firing pin tunnel and other nooks and crannies in that pistol's action group, as well as with my other rimfires.

I just don't have any FTF's or FTEs with any of my rimfires. Even my much maligned Walther P22 is very reliable now.
