Winchester® Super-X .22 Rimfire Ammo
Loaded these up in my 10/22. They would jam or fail to feed every 3rd round

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.

Do not waste your money
Disappointed with the product. The bullet casing jams in my Ruger SR22. Lead containing bullets all work perfectly fine but not these lead free ones. The casing is either too light and does not eject out of the gun or is too big and sticks in the barrel is my guess as to what is contributing to the problem. Either way these bullets need some improving and I do not recommend buying them.

Purchased 2 boxes to shoot in my Savage Arms HMR17 last week. When I opened the first box it was missing 3 bullets. I shot the remaining 47 rounds and 20% did not fire. Opened the second box and it was missing 2 bullets. Again approximatly 20% of the rounds did not fire.
Thinking it might be my gun (never had an issue before though) so I shot 50 rounds of Hornady and 100% fired properly. The old saying, "You get what you pay for" does not even ring true this time. Very expensive ammo when you facotor in the missing bullets and over 20 rounds would not fire.
