Default What the hell causes jams like this?

Using a 10/22, 36g CCI Hollowpoints.





I'll get one of these every 50 or so rounds, it only seems to happen when I use my 25 round mags, I don't think I've ever had one occur when using the 10-round rotary mag.

I'd say it has to be an issue with the 25 round mag no doubt. Ruger has great magazines and if that one never has a problem... Who makes your 25 rounder?

Either a short cycle due to previous round being low on powder, or the magazine. That magazine is fairly well known for having issues. I would spend the Cash for a true ruger 25rnd mag

I have several plastic magazines that were given to me because they were no good. I wash the magazines with dish washing liquid and hot water. With premium ammunition none of the magazines fail very often. When plastic magazines are manufactured plastic sawdust and molding release agents are trapped inside the magazine.

Before you wash the magazine push the follower down with your finger or a stiff piece of wire. Push the follower down after you wash the magazine, you can feel it moves easier and smoother.

One of the previous owners of a 32 shot promag magazine watched me wash the magazine. I put it in my 10/22 and emptied it out without a problem. He still didn't want it after watching me empty it out. Some people...

I agree with magazine.
Next time you are out shooting, put one hand under the magazine like you are inserting the magazine while shooting.

Some .22 lr conversion kits have a warning (mine did) that some magazines may need to be worked on (mine did).

(I won't say the brand name, but the initials are CMMG)

Most likely this particular mag misfeeds hollowpoints. With the slightest feeding angle deviation the HP slams into the receiver, dislodges from the shellcase, and jams the cycle.

I can't honestly tell if this is a Butler Creek mag, but if so, chances are it's no good. I've seen all kinds of problems with them, from a bad feeding lip to a cracked column.

i will have to say that IMO, the magazine is the culprit. many of the aftermarket magazines for the 10/22's can be problematic.

a friend of mine had a problem with an aftermarket magazine in his 10/22. the problems were feeding issues. when using the factory magazine, the problem disappeared immediately, even using the same ammo.

If you are sure the magazine is the issue mail it to me. I will be happy to take it off your hands. It will join the other 10/22 magazines that I own that hang once every 300/400 rounds.
