    TX22 a jam-o-matic right out of the box.

    Just purchased TX22 and have had numerous FTE/FTF/stovepipes with Winchester white box 333 bulk..
    bad mags or ammo?

    It looks to me to be a little bit dry. I would give it a spray of Rem oil or whatever is your choice of lubes and then try some different ammo. Try some CCI maybe the mini mags and if that solves the problem you're good to go.

    Federal cycled perfectly. I think it's that Win white box stuff that doesn't feed.

    I've heard of lots of issues with WWB in various calibers. I also know that many 22 autos even the rifles are finicky with ammo and cleanliness/ lubrication.
    My Ruger 10-22 is like that.... on a day of heavy use I bet spray it with Break Free CLP after a few mags or it will stove pipe....especially with Federal bulk 22s. Remington and CCI don't have any real issues.

    I have 600 rounds of Mini Mag through mine with zero issues. Try the CCI.

    The bulk WWB 22 ammo is often hit and miss in any semi auto. You could try clean and lube pistol and try again. I did test my TX22 with some 20 year old WWB 333 bulks, and it ran pretty good, but did have a few fail to feeds. Just pick a different inexpensive bulk ammo and try.

    I quit buying the Winchester White Box six or seven years ago, and shoot only Federal Champion or Remington Golden bullets in Bulk, and then CCI Minimags and have no problems.

    If it feeds Federal and not Winchester, make a note and move on. You'll find out what your gun likes and what it doesn't.

    I'm going with this idea. If you haven't done so field strip the gun and clean it real well and lube it and then run some quality ammo. Let us know how it goes.

    I have a couple of bulk boxes of the Win White Box I bought back during the shortage. I have had problems with it in every semi auto we have tried it in. I just keep it for my revolvers and bolt guns.
