I think federal has some really good ones and cci has the stinger. I have heard the hornady v-max is also good.
All hollow points tend to jam due to design,some of them are tapered where others are rounded.I shoot an old Remington and have good luck with the CCI ammo
I have the same problem shooting Remington's bullets out of my Remington 22 LR. They jam every other shot. I shoot Federals that come in the value pack. I get them at Walmart for about $13.00 for 550 rounds. They are accurate and do a good job on the gophers. I have never had a problem with the federals jamming.
I have not had a single jam with my Remington Thunderbolts, out of two different rifles. Disclaimer is that I've fired the new ones only a few hundred rounds each.
I did not have but a couple of jams in 10 years of using CCI Stingers in both Ruger pistol or .22 rifle.
Remingtons are the way to go
I have found the CCI Green Tag .22 LR to be the most reliable feeders in semi-auto pistols, but these are not high velocity cartridges.
I shoot very little rimfire that doesn't feature the word "Winchester" on the box.
CCI stingers are excellent!
i shoot remington hollow points and i dont have a problem with them jamming you might wanna try a good cleaning on your gun take it apart and really clean it with a 22 it does not take much for the gun to jam
CCI or Winchester.
The beauty behind the .22lr is ammo is dirt cheap, go to your local ammo dealer and buy several different brands and see what works best in your gun.Like othere here, I like the CCI Stinger, BUT, I also own a Remington 597 which works much better with Thunderbolt solids.
Hornets (can't remember who makes the hornets.
Some have already mentioned these but they are reliable rounds
I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE REMINGTON THUNDER BOLTS I SHOOT JAMMING. WINCHESTER HAS GOOD AMMO. MY ADVICE IS TO BUY A SMALL BOX OF DIFFERENT AMMO AND TRY IT IF STILL HAVING JAMMING ISSUES THEN HAVE THE GUN CHECKED BY A CERTIFIED GUN SMITH. IF YOU DO SWITCH AMMOS I WOULD ONLY BUY SMALL AMOUNTS AND TRY DIFFERENT AMMOS TILL YOU FIND WHAT YOU LIKE BEST AND THEN YOU CAN BUY LARGER AMOUNTS TO SAVE MONEY.
Thoroughly cleaning your 22 occasionally might help. I dont have problems with jamming till my guns start gumming up. Powder residue and oil will eventually cause problems, especially with simi's.
