I like the cci mini mags but any .22lr ammo works fine. when you buy the loose boxes of 550 rounds there tend to be a few misfires/ duds but its no biggie

I have the M&P 22 Pistol, so far, I've shot American Eagle 38gr HP and 40gr solid, Remington Thunderbolt, and Remington Golden Bullets through it. No issues whatsoever, total of about 300 rounds so far between all four types. The first time I shot the pistol was new out of the box with all the grease and crud in/on it from the factory. It's been flawless so far with any ammo I've tried....

HTH....

Like they said.

The M&P22 is not fussy with ammo. Be sure you field strip the pistol and clean out the gobs of packing grease that it leaves the factory with before you try and shoot it. Then lube it lightly with a good quality gun oil and have fun at the range!

First off, read the owner's manual regarding whether to use standard velocity or whether high velocity is okay.

Some 22 pistols are spec'd for standard velocity.

Lead round nose almost guarantees proper feeding in the chamber/breech side of things...but feel free to play with hollow points as well.

As suggested by Eyelawdoc, give it a good cleaning the day before heading out to the range.

Mine shot perfect, even with all the factory goo in it. There was a bunch of it though. Just shoot it and clean it good. Then lube and repeat.....enjoy.

Thanks.
Please don't shoot your new firearm without a thorough cleaning first. Their can be metal shavings in the action/barrel and cause some damage to either or both. I know you didn't say you were going to but others have said that they have and its a bad, bad idea.

I had some really severe barrel leading problems with mine when I shot Reminton lead bullets. CCI have not been a problem.

Sadly ... shoot what you can find.

But post panic, I'd do this.

Start with CCI minimags, they seem to have the least problems of any .22lr round. IF you can do a couple boxes with this fine, then move onto other types. That way you know the gun works fine and any issues are ammo issues.
IF your gun jams with CCI minimags...your need to fix the gun.

My opinion.

M&P22 has great reviews, it feeds just about anything... Sig Mosquito, GSG 1911, etc maybe not...
