Default remington subsonic split casing?

I was trying different brands of ammo today in my cz452 varmint I had one remington subsonic round fail to eject so I took the tip of my pocket knife and got it out with a little effort and noticed the casing was split on the side. anyone else have this problem before using this round? thanks!

Not that problem, but a host of others. They are very dirty, some times don't stay subsonic, many failure to fire w/good strikes. I strictly use CCI standard velocity or subsonics when they go thru my cans. At the range last week I found a pile of Rem subs some one just dumped (threw) on the ground for some reason

Over the years I've always had problems with Remington .22 ammo. From failures to fire to underpowered rounds. Unfortunately the yellowjackets are the only round my Mossberg feeds, but all my other guns get Federal, Winchester, or CCI.

I've had so many fail-to-fire remingtons that I stay away from remington .22 ammo alltogether now.
