First topic message reminder :

I've been shooting my S&W Model 17-5 for a few days now, and it seemed to be acting up.  The more I shot it, the more difficult it got to eject the cases - it got to where my hand was hurting from the effort.

Went home, and last night thoroughly cleaned the gun.  Went back to the range today, and all seemed fine, for a while, but after loading it with 5 rounds maybe seven or eight times, the problem re-occurred.  Stupid me figured something was wrong with the gun, so I asked one of my friends to look at it, and then fire it.  It did the same thing for him.  He was suspicious about the ammo, so we switched to Aguila.  Perfect.  From then on, no issues with Aguila.

I saved two cases from the CCI and the Aguila to measure with a micrometer.  Hopefully it will give me useful information if I call the tech support line at CCI again.  They've already exchanged ammo for me once.  Bummer, year after year, CCI worked effortlessly.  But I guess that's irrelevant.  I need something that will work in 2020.

I did shoot some more CCI later in the day, but I "scrubbed" them off on a piece of rough paper towel to remove whatever cr*p CCI puts on them, which made them useable again.


The gun seems to have no problem with Eley CMP bulk ammo, so I guess I'm going to order another case of it in the near future.  That, or ask here which specific label for Aguila would be good for me.

If others have had the same problem, don't blame the gun until you check out the ammo.

I stopped with CCI and Aguila, and have been using Fiocchi FLRN. it's 6.5 cents per round vs Aguila at 4.5 or CCI at 5.5. Great product, very consistent. Buy a brick and give it a "shot".

Actually, the prior rule was "weighing not more than 40 grains," so 38 grains was fine then, too.  I used 36 grain rounds for a while.

From the 2001 rule book:


"Any pistol (single shot or semiautomatic) or revolver using a .22 caliber rimfire, cartridge having an overall length of not more than 1.1 inches and with lead or alloy bullet not greater than .23 inches in diameter and weighing not more than 40 grains...
(emphasis added)

Current rule says long rifle only
"Any .22 caliber rim fire long rifle cartridge may be used. Only bullets made of lead or similar soft material are permitted"

That's fine.  But why did they redo it to outlaw shorts?  Whats wrong with shorts, like at 50'?  I shot 50' matches with shorts in HS Olympic in the 70s.
