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.

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.

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.

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.
