m&p 15-22
 
Anyone getting alot of failure to feeds with this rifle. I am. I even had a round crack in half. It was the Winchester super x in the wood box. Doesn't bother me too much because I know they're only .22s and they're bulk ammo but I expected a little better performance from this rifle. Any suggestions

I would recommend a good cleaning and inspection and better ammo.

The only malfunctions I have had were with Velocitors. It even ate some bulk Winchesters that would not feed in my 10-22.

I have a 15 22 MOE that eats everything, but Remington Gold Bullets.................I generally use Fedral bulk and Winchester bulk.......I am well over 5000 rounds and no issues.......Same with my Walther Colt C 4.....

Hey Bud, I had a lot of failure to feeds from my S&W MP22 at first regardless of what ammo I tried. I polished the feed ramp and since then I have fired thousands of rounds through it without anymore failures to feed. It will shoot any ammo I feed it. Hope this helps.

I have been firing Blazer CCI .22LR 40 grain since I initially used some Remington .22LR and sent the extractor, spring and pin flying. Luckly, all three were on the table and re-assembly at home.

Too many rounds have been fired, it is over 10K rounds. I can fire a brick at the range.

Mine loves Federal Bulk. Had some FTE/FTF with Remington Gold and Winchester white box.

Did some range time with the M&P 15-22 since changing the bipod. The weather was cool and the wind, will be windy. Some slight corrections and was on the money at 25 and 50 yards. No pics the camera was at home.

I initially fired Blazer CCI 40 gr. and fired some CCI mini-mag .22LR Troy Landry Special Edition, 36 gr. after 15 rounds shooting high. Decided to use them next range time in the Ruger SR22R and see what happens.
