Winchester® Super-X .22 Rimfire Ammo
Are all theses reviews on the Shorts?
I wonder if there is some confusion. There are 2 long rifle and 1 short product all sharing this spot. There are reviewers complaining about FTF in their semis and if they are talking shorts then I agree with the poster who said they aren't using the ammo for the intended purpose.
I picked up 200 rds of these shorts and have been please with their performance but like all shorts, feel they are overpriced. (Yes I understand that is because few shorts are manufactured).
They work well in my Remington bolt action and actually took them squirrel hunting last fall. Since I only take head shots, they work well and created minimal noise.
I do use these (and other shorts) in my Ruger Mark 1 22 LR pistol. Here is a trick that may interest some of you. I load my bottom round in my magazine with a short then fill it up with LR ammo. That last short feeds, fires, and ejects fine but of course would not cycle another round if it weren't the last round. I've used this trick for years so I don't have to count rounds to avoid damaging the firing pin by dropping it on an empty chamber. When the short is fired I definitely know it's time to reload. This could also be a way to stretch your 22 LR ammo. Several times this last year I could find shorts to buy but not LR. FYI, this trick will not work in every .22 semi auto. I've tried it in my PT-22 and it causes a FTF in the round above it.

Winchester 22 short
I'm reading these reviews and wondering why the guys cant figure out that these are SHORTs they are trying to fire in an autoloader thats calling for 22 long! The shorts don't have enough ummpf to cycle the bolt in a rifle like the 10/22. Dosent mean the ammo is bad. Its not meant for that gun. Use it in a bolt or lever action rifle and see the difference.

My SR-22 did not like them so i tried them in 10/22 and same result, not ejecting causing double feed in the chamber from one round not fully ejecting and the next round being forced in to the chamber... so maybe try these on the old Winchester model 52D target rifle....more to follow

Loaded these up in my 10/22. They would jam or fail to feed every 3rd round
