Yes the p22 is a little finicky with lower quality rounds. Especially anything under 1200fps. If you want a trouble free day use cci rounds but if you want to go cheap you can expect 0-5 failure to reloads per 100 rounds.
I put 1000 rounds through it the first day out and found out you cannot use leaded rounds. The barrel literally had lead coming out of the tip like a split banana and it was key holing like crazy.
I now have around 5,000 rounds or so though it using all types copper plated tips without any fouling issues.
