I bought a box of Winchester .22 LR #12Shot, Star Crimp to use on my 1022 with the Tubular Magazine. Tried it out yesterday and it can only shot Single Shots. I can't fire Semi. Need to discharge and reload. Wrong ammo?

I have had problems with that ammunition. The cases sometimes burst during ignition in my little boys cricket. I agree with the cci beingbeing better but can't comment on it being able to cycle the action.

I'll try CCI. BTW...I gave an erroneous description about my RUGER. 1022 with a Magazine. Not tubular. It's the one that holds 10 rds. Thanks for the reply.

I have not tried the 22LR flavor of the CCI shotshells in my 10/22 so no comment on that but I will tell you that in general, in semi-auto pistols, the shotshells do not generate enough gas pressure to properly cycle the actions. They work best in revolvers.

The CCI shotshells work great for small rodent control in my Single Six revolver.
I also have never tried them in my 10/22 because I fear the plastic capsule might break and foul the action or magazine with shot pellets.
If I were to try it I think I would load one to see if it ejects properly, then go from there.
Am I over thinking it? Probably.

None of the shot shells will cycle in the 10/22. Not enough power to blow the action back.
I wonder if a more substantial wad would improve the situation - assuming an adequate powder charge.

Um - what is the planned result when shooting a shot shell in a 10/22?

I wouldn't be surprised at all that a shot shell 22lr wouldn't eject in a semi auto rifle. Does the gun eject and cycle correctly with standard 22lr lead round nose?

I shoot wood borer bees with mine.

I shoot any varmint that moves. In my yard, of course. But mostly, Armadillos that dig holes and underground encampments. Wood borer bees? Sounds like fun. I'd use a pellet gun for more of a challenge.

Speaking of borer bees I have an area where I can't hardly mow because the dang borer bees have nested in the ground there. They haven't stung me so I am guessing they don't have stingers but they do attack me. They are size of bumblebees. I thought since they can bore into wood I hope they don't bore into my body when they attack me.
