About 15 years ago, I picked up a Glenfield 75C semi-auto .22 rifle from a pawn shop. I took the rifle to a local gunsmith and had him go through the rifle and reblue it. I was never completely happy with the function of the rifle. I guess this was due to the crappy trigger. I bet I haven't fired 100 rounds through the rifle.

I took it out to day just to make sure it still worked. I loaded 3 rounds of Eley practice 100 ammo. It fired the 1st shot and then jamed. It would only fire the next round if I loaded the round into the chamber.

I then loaded 3 rounds of the Winchester Super X high velocity rounds. It shot, cycled and function all 3 rounds like it should. Is it common for this rifle to only work with the high velocity stuff and not work with the standard velocity? Or is something else happing on the inside of the rifle, that I need to address? Thanks Ken

It's not that unusual for a semi-auto to have reliability problems with target ammo, standard velocity or sub-sonics. Target ammo especially can be bad due to the extra lube on the bullet. Another thing is that some will need to be well broken in to handle the slow stuff... this should not be the problem after a brick or two of high velocity.

Marlin's love high speed (but not stingers) I use CCI Blazer or Mini Mags in mine with no problems... keep it clean and it'll work just fine.

The trigger however will always be... 'not great'
