    That is classic bad headspace out of a rimfire. Could be the barrel/ bolt, could be the bolt is not fully closing or not enough spring pressure, or as stated before could be an out of spec run of ammo. Headspace needs to be checked on the gun with HS gauges, then check that ammo with a rim thickness gauge.
    Could be the brass is too thin or weak in the rim or the case rim is undersize.
    I'm just a Redneck with too many guns.

    I did like the red dot and it was much lighter in weight, but my old eyes had a hard time using it because the dot is not real crisp. I’ll see what my son wants to do as it’s his gun and let’s just say he’s a little younger than me. I do like the scope though. The glass is clear and the reticle is pretty easy to get on target. I’m still figuring it out as there is quite a few things to learn with the scope. What’s your reasoning for putting the red dot back on it? Weight, appearance, quality of the optics?

Iíll test it this weekend and run some different brands through it and see what happens.
    Seems like the problem started when you removed the red dot. Lol Sweet looking rifle. Hope it gets resolved soon.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Where you at OP? Make any headway? I’m still leaning toward ammo fail.
    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct itóóó
