It only cycles the Quiets occasionally... maybe once every couple of mags. A bit of a pain if you can already shoot, but I use Quiets when I teach so we don't have to wear ear-pro... makes the student way more comfortable, especially a first time shooter or a kid. Plus, they get to work the controls a lot (every round), and I get to reinforce muzzle control and safety. Quiets are a great way to teach semi-automatic pistols but limit them to one shot at a time. I don't like teaching with a revolver, since the ergo's are so different than a semi-auto.

EDIT: I see in my last post... should have said "fails to cycle 29/30 times"...

I tried the Aguila Colibris, but the're only really good for revolvers. They barely make it more than about 10" down the barrel on my 10-22 and Savage MKII. I also tried some Aguila Sniper Subsonics one time, but they gave me about a 12" group at 50yds... so slow you can see them fly and impact through the scope.

I do still love my MKIII, and will likely keep it forever.
It lives in the truck these days.
Damn. Been out of the loop with pistols. I havent bought a pistol since before the FSA2013 (Maryland). I dont care to jump through hoops to exercise a right.

The only cartridge that will cycle my Mark III every time is the CCI Minimag. I have tried every other cartridge available with limited success.

Interesting. I shoot minimags almost exclusively, but I've never had any issues with any other of the dozen or so loads I've shot out of it.
I did have a faulty magazine once though. Are you sure that's not the problem?

Could be, but I stocked up on Minimags as they were available and never went back.

Yeah, after the ammo shortage a few years ago, I stocked up big time on minimags. There just isn't much else that compared in the 22 rimfire market.
I also Iike stingers, and honestly can't tell much of a difference between the two other than a slightly shifted group.

I've mentioned before, but I sold off about 15k rounds of random .22lr and have consolidated. I used to buy anything I could find, or on sale, or that I could get in a trade... and then have to re-zero my scopes every time I shot a different random box of 50 I had. **** that noise.

All I buy now are:
Federal Automatch
CCI Standard Velocity
CCI Quiet
CCI Stinger

Of course, living in Hawaii, I haven't bought ammo in a year and the only .22lr gun I brought was my CMMG conversion bolt for my .223 AR, which is ******* sweet.

Federal automatch is my goto, but I wont shoot it if its under 40F out because then its supersonic in my gun. If I really want to shoot impressive groups I have a selection of elay.

^My Savage FV-SR off a bipod/bag shoots CCI SV's like a champ... 5rd groups with 3-4 toucing... easily 1/2" (1MOA) all day. It's got a nothing-special 3-9x Nikon on it. I'd really love to thow a 20x scope on there and really see what the gun could do with some better ammo. It's turned into a range toy anyways.

I just checked Buds, and holy crap Savage rimfires have gone up in price by like $50 since last I checked... wow!

Deal at Sportsmans Guide:
https://gun.deals/product/savage-mar...1-rounds-12349

The "FV" gets you a bull barrel and scope bases. For the field, I like the "F" better with the sporter barrel (1lb lighter) and it comes with irons... not that I wouldn't have a scope, but I do like lighter.

Also, current rebates on Savage are $50 for an A or B series rimfire... takes the price on those down to less than mose of the low/mid tier MKii's. Only "rebate" on MKii's is a free Orca 30oz tumbler.
