Default CCI CB's in Ruger MarkIII

I have a new Ruger Mark III pistol (1911 style). Love the gun and it eats the CCI LR .22's like a champ. Thought I would also try some of the CB's since they are not as loud for my kids to shoot. They seem to not cycle and jam up quite a bit.

CB's are not the typical ammo I shoot, but was wondering if there is a fix for this or its just simply not a good ammo for the gun.

Ultra low power load not suitable for autos. Not enough power to operate the action.

While they don't cycle autos, they work just fine in revos. It makes them nice for the little range in the garage.

got to use ammo with enough power to cycle the action. if not then you will be plagued with problems.
