Welcome to the forum! stop over in the Introductions Section and say hello to everyone.
not being as familiar with that rifle as i should be, here goes nothing. a good cleaning as suggested would be the first order of business. with many rimfires, this eliminates a lot of prolems. i too think a spring may be the issue, since you said it would feed four of the five rounds with no problem and having the problem with the fifth one. either there is some dirt or crud keeping it from feeding properly when it gets to the last round or the spring is weak at extension when at the last round. with the other rounds, it is compressed enough to still have enough tension to feed the first four rounds.
this is the best i can offer at this time.
again, Welcome to FTF!
