The first thing I would change with a 10/22 is to install a VQ exact edge extractor. That $12.00 investment should take care of a majority of potential failures in the 10/22. Secondly, during test-firing, just use Ruger brand mags.
I just bought my 1st Ruger 10/22 (I've been an avid handgunner for almost 25 yrs!). In a week, I have put close to 800 rounds of Federal & Remington bulk with not a single failure. Will be shooting it again this coming weekend and the next!
