No. The velocity of target or match 22 ammo varies quite a
bit between different manufacturers. I have chronographed a
lot of 22 ammo and target ammo from Federal, Aguia and CCI
run as much as 100 fps slower than some other brands like
Remington Target and Winchester T22s. It is very common for
standard semi auto rifles and pistols to fail to cycle some
brands of target velocity ammo. My Remington Nylon 66 auto
will just barely cycle Remington Target ammo but will not
work with Federal or CCI.
