Cci 40 grain federal 36 grain and Winchester 40 grain give me a sec I'm pretty sure it happens ass the round feeds in to the chamber but the lead dosent come off until the round is fired give me a sec ill see if I can get a pic

Ok I got some pics here is what's going on when the spent case is ejected it scrapes the top of the new round. The blow back of the round is enough to launch the case out and load a new one it had never jammed on me but cycling it by hand with out the force of the bullet it does jam here are pics it's never cause a problem. And my dad always says if it ain't broke don't fix it and it works fine. Should I do anything.

I've seen it happen in other 22's. I would not worry about it. Listen to your dad!

suggestion....
next time you are at the range, shoot like normal and then eject a round that had been loaded at full speed once in a while. see if anything is scraped off of the round from the chamber. If you think the blow back is doing the scraping, then remove the mag-if possible- before ejecting the sample. I have a 22 in the shop because it did something similar and I didn't catch it in time.when I switched from LRN (Lead Round Nose)to brass washed rounds, the round was tougher than the extractor point of the chamber and a chunk broke away. just watch how it reacts and check your rounds every so often and you'll notice if there really is a problem.

Just my thoughts good luck
