Default S&W M&P 15-22 picky ammo?

Just purchased a 15-22 because I like to shoot and ammo is just too damn expensive right now. It seems Ike a decent rifle for a little over $400. But I'm having trouble with it not fully ejecting. I was wondering if this gun likes a certain ammo better than others. Anyone have any experience with this?

I got my m&p 15-22 about 3 months ago for the same reason. I haven't had any trouble with mine, but I seen on another forum that people with the same problem were sending there guns to smith&wesson, and they were fixing the problem and throwing in a extra mag for the trouble. It might be something you want to look into.

Thats your problem right there , I have 1000 rds of remington that wont cycle thru my .22lr converted AR , Winchester 333's or 555's shoot best without any hiccups followed by bulk federal . Put the remingtons in and it just chokes all over its self .

You need to read your owners manual it tells you what ammo to avoid and that is one of them i believe. Mine has shot great, no problems here, people just need to take the time and read the manual.

Another thing to verify is whether your bolt spring is blue in color or not. The springs on the earlier models ha problems, and s&w change them out for the blue ones. If yours isn't blue send it in to s&w for a free warranty fix.

I wont even buy the bulk Rems anymore. My wifes M&P eats everything I have fed it but it did balk on Velocitors. They were too hot. It even ate some Winchesters that my 10-22 would not function with. Needles to say I have not fed it any Rems. I had too many problems with them like loose bullets and a 20%+ fail to fire rate. I had to use them up in a bolt action and do restrikes.
