    DITTO!
    same for me , out of 4 semi auto pistols and 3 semi auto rifles in 22 , none can really be said to run well on Winny Bulk.
    its a constant nightmare of failure to chamber, failure to extract, failure to eject, I don't even look at winny Bulk myself.
    course they still make it and sale a lot of it so it works in someones guns.

    Happy to report that the TX22 runs perfectly with anything but Winny bulk.

    Call me naive, but I believe that a 22LR firearm should chew up and spit out all major brands of normal velocity ammo.

    well in THEORY every firearm should do such, but in the real world its not this way.
    particularly with 22 ammo be it short, long , or long rifle.
    simply rim fire ammo is just by its nature not as reliable as centerfire ammo.
    additionally many companies selling bulk try to cut corners as much as possible and still function, as we know when you cut the corners short enough then you are more likely to get bad results from minor variations.
    22 WMR and 17 HMR seem to be a lot better quality, course its a lot more money as well.

    handguns are different than long guns for some reason. i've owned guns now for over 40 years, and i have used ammo in a long gun just fine but the same ammo wouldn't feed in several hand guns. my marlin 60 has eat everything that i have put in it even winchester but some handgun just won't take it.

    I love my Marlin 60. First gun I bought the day I turned 18. Paid $69.99 for it at Otasco (Western Auto). She still shoots great too!

    Winchester 333 bulk jams/fails to eject in every one of my semi autos which includes two Rugers, a Mk 2 and a SR22. Also fails in all my semi auto rifles. Toss it and buy some REAL .22 ammo. For cheap, Remington golden bullet and Federal Champion bulk work for me.

    The key words here are "should" and "normal velocity". Winchester is loaded so light I consider it about .22 short equivalent in velocity. It is pathetic.

    Actually, the TX22 has been perfect with Remington Golden Bullets, CCI Mini-Mag, and Federal Auto. TX22 #1 has passed the 1800 round mark with NO malfunctions. This is the gun I sent back to Taurus because of magazine problems. TX22 #2 has one failure to feed on a Mini-Mag HV HP. 309 other rounds were no problem. My Bersa T22 won't feed anything but HV rounds exceeding 1200FPS. My Ruger MKII chokes on Winchester and Federal Standard Velocity. .22 semi-automatics ARE finicky. The handguns much more than rifles. This Mossberg id older than me but shoots anything.
