I do belive that Ruger missed a step in the making of the barrel of my wife's SR 22. The rifling is a mirror finish but the chamber and throat are rough at best. The chamber shows heavy machine tooling marks, and there is no transisition from the throat to the rifling. It's as if they put all the work into the bore only to run a drill bit into the breach to form the chamber. After a lot of time polishing the chamber and throat, it now functions like it should, no leading, no FTE's. My problem was with unplated ammo (Remington thunderbolt), and anything Federal. It ran every thing else just fine. Now, it runs all of it. After doing a U tube search I did find that I was not the only one with the problem.
