Not saying that you would. I was just explaining that the user manual states to use high velocity ammo. I have to check CCI site yet though.

Normal dimensions of Walthers are not the ANSI standards.

Everyone I have run ito on the range and shooting myself has been picky. 40 grn Blazer and 40 grn CCI Mini Mags usually work. I was looking at them and said no way after trying a few. I will wait until the new Ruger is weaned.

I like the green frame.
Have you seen the SIG Mosquito in the digital camouflage?

Allegedly the Ruger SR22 will eat anything. So, price being close, I'm planning on buying the Ruger, especially with the included smaller grips to teach my wife and daughter how to operate a semi auto pistol.

I have owned a p22 for about 4 years now. Initially it was picky about the ammo. The bulk stuff didn't do so well. For the last two years it runs anything flawlessly. I don't even bring the hot stuff shooting anymore. I believe over time your pistol will do the same as mine. Keep trying the bulk ammo every range trip and see if your pistol doesn't improve. Just my experience. Good luck.

I ran about 300 rounds of Mini Mags through my P22 before I shot anything else in it. After the Mini Mags, It would fire anything, including Federal bulk, Winchester bulk and American Eagle. I ended up trading it though. It just wasn't up to snuff in the accuracy department. Traded it on a Browning 1911 .22 A1.
