Here is an older thread that addresses your question. It has over 200 responses and will surely help you decide. Personally, I use CCI Mini-Mags and Thunderbolts. Check it out. By the way, Welcome to the Forum.

Exclamation 2 cents

German-made rimfire handguns (pistols and revolvers), work best with German-made/branded ammunition like RWS, SK, Geco etc. The P22 does.

U.S.-made rimfire pistols like U.S.-manufactured fodder best (CCI, Federal, Remington etc.). Rugers work best with US ammo but the P22 will not give its best performance even with the best Federal or CCI. It just doesn't.

The Italian- and Russian-made rimfire guns prefer Finnish or Czech LR products (Lapua and Sellier & Bellot).

That's 18-year worth of data with practically most all sporting and Match handgun models in circulation, in the hands of a variety of shooters.

I don't know the reason, just the result.

Mine requires HV to cycle reliably, but it is otherwise not picky at all.
