    Try federal automatch. The brass is slightly narrower than most other brand name 22lr. My OMT has the same behavior but the automatch works fine.

    40 grain
    FEATURES:

    • Brass casing
    • Quantity: 325 rounds
    • Model: AM22

My wife isn't into guns and has no idea how to sell them. She is much younger and will need the money. Likely many unwashed and unworthy`s will end up with some for a song and not even know what they have. That`s the truer odd`s boys! Dance with the one ya brung! I broke my hip a couple months ago, got a ball and socket replacement and cant walk but a step or two without my stroller. My ATV and guns dont see the light of day. My wife has been pushing me to get rid of stuff I cant use out of our over loaded garage and shed. We already have gave away one nice revolver, a tent, a bunch of expensive boots, sold the plane, etc. I do own a couple of commemoratives that would be dumb to shoot but all other fine guns are going to get shot from now on IF I want to. I will go to hell before I buy a pair of white gloves!
    I agree with this premise. In my case I have no kids (so far that I know of) and I see no use in preserving, say my Python, unfired or 'little fired'. I may lose $500 in value over time due to use, but I am already in the black on it so no big deal. I probably will end up giving my guns to my niece (after I croak) who is the only one in the bunch who is a bit firearm savvy.

    Enjoy your stash Bob !

    Wolf 40 grain 'match target' also has narrower brass. I just discovered this last Saturday. A fellow shooter gave me some for my OMT.
