No problems with either CCI or Federal bulk. Actually, mine has eaten about anything I throw in it, including tracers (just clean it really good!). I did have some trouble with some 80's vintage CCI but that was mostly poorly manufactured rounds and I guess quality control is better now. Of course, my usual range has a hissy-fit if you fire faster than one-per-second so I'm usually limited to flintlock-era firing speeds and that might allow for everything to stay cool (or bored to tears). Anyway, when I can let 'er rock I haven't had much trouble with the thing.

If there's one thing I hate, it's super x. That stuff doesn't feed in anything! Get some Federal, it'll work.

Mine will also eat just about anything. But prefers Cci for serious accuracy.

When did you buy yours? Some of the older ones have a different spring on the bolt that causes it to misfeed/not eject. If there is a blue spring on your bolt then disregard this entire post.

I got mine with the non blue spring. Worked flawless. But i also contacted SW customer service and they sent me 2 springs. Worked flawlessly too.

Mine worked well before the spring swap too until a Winchester round blew up in the chamber and threw bits and pieces of the bolt everywhere. Sent it back to smith and they sent it back with the new spring never had an issue since eats any round I put in it. (Except for the winchesters in the white box I don't use those anymore)

Default Fte, ftf. Etc.

This was very frustrating for me as I had similar problems with my M&P 15-22 - lots of jams, FTE, and FTF - until I made certain the "feeding end" of the magazines were smooth and clean. I "smoothed" them with light pressure from a dremel tool (PLASTIC BRUSH) to ensured smooth surfaces in and out (the rounds were properly loaded as well). I have had ZERO issues and smooth feeding and since then (600-750 rounds so far).

Be VERY Careful NOT to re-contour any edges - especially the portion that "grips" to rear of the round.
S-m-o-o-t-h is the goal and of course a decent cleaning of the area. After the "smoothing" has taken place (and it should be a ONE time process) , then cleaning is only a wool mop/nylon brush/blow/wipe easy-peezy routine to do. Hope pictures help you.
