I edited out a few things from your original post to focus on the important points and this is just my 2c worth of input for you to consider and reject. You won't offend me Everyone has slightly different results :First rounds I sent through it were CCI/Speer Tactical 40gr bulk. All 300 rounds fired flawlessly.
I had picked up a 325 bulk pack of Federal Automatic target grade and had a lot of FTE with one FTF. Has anyone else seen this problem?
After the first range visit I did clean the pistol and made sure to apply CLP to the rails, slide and anywhere else that rubs. *edit* And yes, I cleaned it again after today. I clean my firearms after each visit.
I'm going to try the blazer rounds next, but only get a 50 rd box to try em. The CCI/Speer Tac cost me $30 for 300, compare that to 2.49 per 50 of the Blazer.
So your image is not displaying-- what is the name of the ammo you refer too as "the Golden Fleece"?Hello friends. I have some information for P22 "newbies" and "old salts" as well. In regards to the best ammunition you can get for your P22, here is the Golden Fleece:
We all know how our Walthers are ammo fussy. After much trial and error my girl and I have found several rounds her P22 likes, but her P22 LOVES these nasty pellets! No failures through two boxes of them. They are hyper-velocity rounds that scream away at over 1600 feet per second (you can clearly hear a sonic "crack"), and are hollow points as well! Squirrels and opossum beware! These would be the rounds to consider if you carry a P22 for protection purposes as well. That round is going to shatter into a million pieces on impact and do some serious damage.
What's better? I do not lie when I make the statement that these little rounds produce the most spectacular muzzle flash I have ever seen from a handgun! I have shot 9mm kurz, 9mm Luger, .357 Magnum, and .40 handguns and I am confident in stating these Stingers make an incredible muzzle flash! A basketball-sized ball of bright blue-white flame flashes before the P22 when firing these bullets, visible in bright daylight.
Just thought I'd share. These bullets are incredible and your P22 will thank you for feeding it some Stingers, and you will smile after a magazine of them!

I concur. I bought a P22q a few months ago and have run about 600 total rounds through it. It will shoot anything rated 1240 fps or better - except Federal. Had problems with FTE with Gold Medal Match HV, same but far fewer issues with Game-Shok. Everything else ---Armscor, Aguila Super Velocity, American Eagle HV, MiniMags, Blazer, Velocitors, Stingers, Winchester Wildcat Super Speed -- works fine.They are funny beasts those P22's
No Fed for mine.
I recently ran some Velocitors and I/it was great.
RGB's for plinking
Mini-mags when I want it to go bang and cycle every time.
and now Velocitors when I want punch.
