Title: 22LR shells
Post by: fleetway on August 26, 2015, 09:58:08 AM
Was using Henry Survival rifle last weekend, and getting lots of jams. Need the best 22LR shell to do this. Do I need to go to a magnum. Was using 40 grain.

  We use thunderbolt its a remmington brand or CCI Stingers with no problems. But at $8 for 50 rds the CCI's are in storage, can't believe that it's $45 for a brick...WTF?

.22 LR and .22 Winchester Magnum are 2 completely different rounds. They are not interchangeable.

There are a number of articles online detailing feeding problems and fixes. Some involve magazine adjustments and others detail lapping the feed ramp into the breech. Still others are resolved with an ammo change. The general consensus seems to be that CCI mini mags are digested well by this rifle. Best of luck.

Guns are like woman....they're finicky. Every gun is different, as different as the various ammo there is available for it. Which means you're going to have to buy a box of every brand of 22LR ammo, until you find the one your gun likes.

Do all the tweets that are available. But remember it always comes down to the ammo. Whether it's Winchester, Remington, CCI etc. It's like comparing Elvis Presley to Johnny Cash to the Rolling Stones. They're all Greats but yet they are all different
