    2,000 rounds of .22 LR. Remington Golden Bullets (about 700) CCI Mini Mags 36 grain HP's (about 1100) and 200 rounds of Blazer. NO misfires. Ammunition was between 1 and three years old. I think these companies are back on track.

    Rimfire is notorious for failure. 4-5 years ago, the manufacturing was stressed, and loading lines were down. You didn't mention brand, but it may not make much difference.
    Clean the rifle and get some up to date CCI. See how that goes. I would put my money on the ammo, but don't know the history of the rifle or the author. :clown:
    Good Luck

    Berto has the answer I came up with as a kid. I threw away about half a box of ammo (expensive for a 16 year old kid) trying to get a Ruger Target to operate semi-automatically. Was about to take it back (range rental) when I noticed there was a lot of stuff stuck to the back of the barrel. Scraped it off with a pocket knife. All the rest of my box worked just fine.
