I've had some .22 rounds that appear not to have primer compound in them.
Load, attempt to fire.
Rotate in cylinder so the firing pin strikes a separate area, attempt to fire.
Up to 4 times.
So, that round was never going to fire.

Most common issue though would be not having the round seated all the way into the cylinder. Then the first strike basically just seats the round properly with a light indent in the rim. Usually fires the second time just fine. Clean chambers help. If you have a minimal spec or "tight" chamber then it may be a picky about ammo brands that have rounds closer to "maximum" diameter spec for .22.

If I were in the market for a new revolver I'd be looking at the Ruger Single-10.
All data is flawed, some just less so.
