I just picked up my 2nd new Walther PPK/S .22 LR, having sold the first one just when it was becoming reliable...lol. I tried a Glock 44 in .22, and even though it was flawless through 800 rounds, I still prefer a DA/SA action, though.
I haven't been to the range yet, as I'm trying to ration my ammunition due to the panic buying of ammo at all the local outlets.

I know Remington Golden Bullet 40gr plated round nose functions very well in this handgun. I just picked up a box of Federal 38 gr HV plated hollow points to see how they perform.

CCI MINI MAG (40 gr. solid or 36 gr. hollow point) are the '..gold standard..' and run flawlessly in almost all .22LR semi-autos.

Remington Golden Bullet (40 gr. solid or 36 gr. hollow point)
Aguilla Super Extra Hi Velocity (40 gr. solid)
run almost as well as CCI Mini Mags...with very few Failures (to Feed, Fire or Eject) per thousand.

Winchester Super X High Velocity has been spotty for me, with far too many Failures to Eject per thousand (though I purchased 5 boxes--300 rounds) I tried to run the first 200 rounds through two different PPK/S and a Sig Mosquito with several dozen Failures to Eject and gave the remaining 200 rounds to a buddy with a .22 revolver.

NONE of the various Federal '.bulk pack..' .22 LR ammo would run through two different PPK/S or a Sig Mosquito.

The *** ABSOLUTE WORST *** .22 LR ammo that I've tried has been ARMSCOR PRECISION 36 gr. Though the ammo cycled through several different 22 LR semi auto pistols...it also suffered several *** CATASTROPHIC FAILURES *** (case & rim 'blowouts') that damage two PPK/S and a Sig Mosquito...and ejecting nasty bits of shredded brass into my face (turns out that wearing protective eye wear is a really good idea).

Finally made it to the range yesterday, and fired 50 rounds of Federal 38 gr CP HV. Had one FTE. Much better first session than I had with my previous PPK/S .22....:)
