Default 60 grain .22LR Aguilera rounds Highly Sparking?

After sampling and testing different ammunition brands, I decided to purchase four boxes of the 60 grain .22LR aguilera rounds. Each box came with 50 rounds.

Each round was higher in carbon than CCI Ammunition or Winchester, and immediately within three shots I noticed sparks flying from my ejection port.

Maybe it was a bad 50 round box, so then I decided to try rounds from the four 50 round boxes I had purchased. The sparking got worse, carbon increased, and each round smoked quite high.

I chose to switch back to 40 grain CCI Ammunition and Winchester X. The other ammo produced far less carbon, no smoke and no sparks.

Has anyone else dealt with the same issue from 60 grain .22LR aguilera rounds?

Edit: I am firing a S&W M&P 15-22.

Are you talking about the Aquila Sniper Subsonic ammo? If so, my Marlin 795 eats them up with no problem. Really good stuff too!

The 60gr are subsonic. Your bolt is likely opening too soon with that big slow bullet still in the barrel.

Best fired from a bolt action.

I have a brick of the darn things. They're the "22 SSS Sniper Subsonic" load - correct? I suspect the heavier bullet causes the blowback bolt of a 22 to open a touch sooner resulting in some still burning powder from the ejection port. I shoot lefty, haven't really noticed but then I'm used to a little spit in my eye.

Yes, I am shooting the 60 grain .22LR Aguilera Sniper Subsonic Rounds.
The sparks literally fly out of the ejection port. Visually 3-4 inches, maybe five inches away from the rifle.

I also get a lot of sparks out of the ejection port (15-22) with the SSS.

It also smells bad...

I shoot the 60 grain Aguila a 10-22, Marlin with no problem. The mosquito will not even eat it. I have not had any problems nor seeing what is being described and over all I like this ammo. Has a good Lil punch for a 22lr.

I have used this ammo in a S&W 22A, Ruger SR22, Rough Rider revolver, Henry Frontier and Savage MKII and never had the OP's issue. Only complaint I have read about the Super Sniper from Aguila is that some folks have problems with it keyholing and accuracy issue. I have had neither.

Maybe he got a bad batch of ammo, it happens.

You can always bolt the bolt closed with your hand and then hand cycle each round

The key is to hold the bolt shut firmly. You do not want to let the bolt get and velocity and then try to stop a moving bolt

Or get yourself a Stevens model 87A. Semiauto tube fed BUT by pushing the bolt handle IN it becomes a single shot, neat concept AND they are not very costly, usually less than $150.
