    To the oP: that chamber looks drier than a desert dune. Agree with the lube comments. Also, might want to look into lubed bullets. When I shot rifle team in HS and college we shot only “match” ammo. What did that mean? Well, all I recall is that the ammo was heavily lubed - and, I do mean lubed. Each round coated with grease. But for rapid bolt action never had a hang up. I wouldn’t overdo it though as 22 is supposed to be cheap and fun. Eley is a brand known for lubed bullets.

    Winchester White Box belongs in a cat litter box, well maybe not, cats deserve better. I break all my new 22's in with a 1000 rds of CCI MINI MAGS. After that then , and only then I'll try different ammo. I also run the 1st 1000 in a "slightly wet" condition cleaning after every range trip regardless of number of rds fired.

    Yeah, probably a WWB problem. I shot ~250 rounds of Winchester Black Box and had one round that caused a FTE because the round didn't go off.

    When in doubt, shoot CCI mini mag. It ain't the cheapest, it may not be the most accurate, but it usually works. .22s are finicky.

    I have a Browning Buckmark and it will feed only HV 22 ammo, a lot of 22's have a ammo preference it is up to you to find out which is prefered. Win White box is not a choice at all BAD stuff.

    I am of limited experience and knowledge - but no more Winchester 22LR for me.

    Wouldn't even run in my Remington 22 rifle (like the bullet was longer and hung up in the MAG).

    Cheap Remington Thunderbolt works in all my 22s. I am a bit on the cheap side and don't shoot much else.

    As far as the TX22, relatively new gun for me - say shot 300 rounds - have had 4 Fail to Feed (think with Aquilla 1255 and some with Remington Thunderbolt also).

    As Joey said, works OK now with NOT WINCHESTER.

    For cheap, I still like the Federal Champion bulk stuff. But, I tend to strive for what works AND is most accurate. That is sometime Federal. In my 10/22 rifle, it's most definitely CCI standard velocity. It works 100 percent and is squirrel head accurate at 75 yards.

    A little later in the game now, shot a good more number of rounds thru the TX22 and mostly now using all Remington Thunderbolt (sale at $12.99 plus tax = $14.30 for box of 500).

    Convinced Thunderbolt is not the best AMMO, some inconsistency you can even hear when it goes off. However, all my pistols (and my one Remington 22 Rifle) run it OK and probably as accurate as I can shoot anyway. So, at $0.0286 a round VS say $0.05 to as much as $0.10 a round, I will shoot it. Save $2 to $7 for a 100 rounds is my cup of tea. LOL

    Here are some targets from 11-09-16 with various guns. Mostly showing AMMO here, there are some TX22 targets (21 feet and 30 feet).
