    I bought a used skeeter the other day and want to know what ammo works in it. I have tried CCI Stingers and Velocitors that work great but Federal bulk wont cycle it or my GSG 1911.:banghead:

    Remington Makes 22 ammo called Yellow Jacket, it has worked for me before in stubborn and picky guns
    Also, Winchester has a Super-X High Velocity 22 for hunting that works very well for me.

    you just have to realize that some guns like your Sig and a Walther a friend of mine gave me to look at last week just require premium ammo
    and the bulk pack ammo might not cycle well in them.

    Everything I've heard about the Mosquito is it likes the CCI. My wife has one and that's all we try to feed hers anymore. We've had mixed luck with some brands, but typically the bulk stuff causes issues in them.

    If Stingers and Velocitors work well in it, try some CCI High Velocity...solid or hollow point. They should work equally as well and generally cost less than the hyper vel rounds. I would stay away from the bulk ammo, mainly Golden Bullets.

    Try some CCI Mini-Mags.

    Skeeters can be finicky, as are most newer pattern .22 semi-automatic hand guns.

    Fore some unknown reason, my 30+ year old Ruger MKII digests every thing I have ever fed it.

    I'm guna leave the bulk to my 10/22 and lever action and try the suggestions on here. I didn't know it was that picky when I bought it but now know better.

    My Skeeter will shoot Federal Target and other ammo, but I gotta run it really wet. I liberally fill the lube point on the right side of the slide (as seen below) with Remington oil before and during shooting...

    It considerably improves my gun's ability to cycle reliably!

    We have one at the range I work at and it only likes CCI Mini-Mag. I'm pretty sure it even says to run it in the owners manual.
