No,Just don't buy any Remington ammo from Wallyworld.
If you buy it from a real gun/ammo store it will shoot just fine.

I need to make a note to myself, "Where you buy your ammo effects its functionality". Hmmmmm...

Sounds strange to me that as a manufacturer of any product would use the same box to put two different quality levels of the same product in them and ship accordingly. some of the brands work better for me than others but thats with any ammo. i like to save a buck here and there so the bulk paks are one of my favorite things to buy whether i need it or not. the only problem i have is the price tags dont come close to some of the ones i have on others that i still have. this will be a never ending subject that will be cussed and discussed for every.

The fix is easy and only takes about $11 and 5 minutes to fix. Get a Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor and install it on your bolt and you won't have anymore problems. Since I put one in each of my two 10/22's I haven't experienced anymore issues like you mention.

GunKings.com has them for $10.95 with free shipping:

Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor for 10/22 (Free Shipping) [VC10EE] - $10.95 : Gunkings, 10-22 and AR15 parts and accessories

All five of my .22's eat Federal 550 Bulk Pack ammo from Wally World for $15 each like candy.

I've had mine since 1978 and put thousands of rounds of Remington, Federal and Winchester ammo through it with no trouble. A few years ago I started getting a jam once in awhile with the same ammo. I thought maybe the extractor was wearing out so I put in a Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor and didn't have another problem. Since then I have also put them into another 10/22 and a Mark III pistol for my son and his girlfriend.

I've not found that to be the case.

I run a box of Aquila Super Calibria through it and then a box of CCI Blazers and the extraction issues were gone. It must have been that Wallyworld bulk federals that were causing the problems. Out of 50 CCI I had one failure to feed but no other problems and definitely no extraction problems. It seemed like the Federal rounds were just a little bit longer than the other two ammos I have tried in it.

1stly, I'm a new guy but the original thread is about 4 yrs old. . . Just sayin. :P

Secondly, there's an issue with smaller primers in Federal ammunition at WalMart. Spittinfire talked about it on his thread located here: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=446148
I don't know if other brands are affected but I wouldn't doubt it.
