It is possible that with the sixth round, the empty case was ejected and the next round simply failed to strip from the magazine and the slide/bolt closed on an empty chamber. This could be caused by an overly strong recoil spring or, more likely, slide movement inhibited by fouling in the recoil spring or most likely a weak cartridge (even the best factory with good quality control can let a bad one sneak through every once in a while) that was powerful enough to send the bullet to the target but without enough power to fully cycle the action.
this is where I'd put my money, its a .22, it happens no big deal you handled it properly by making sure there was no misfire and the barrel wasn't plugged
