anyone try the CCI Stingers in the 541S match barrel?

Ive had great results with this hot little round from my other rifles. But knowing its a touch longer in case length .990" COL versus .963" which is .027" longer I wonder if it would get stuck or not fit into the match chamber of the 541S.

Are you speaking of the earlier 541 S's from the custom shop never heard of those models called "match" barrels but they were done in the custom shop.

I's ran CCI mini's and S.V. with excellent results for non match ammo, the CCI SV shot under 3/8's.

YEs from the 70s those 541S all came with match chambers. Given the tight close tolerance I was concerned with the .027" longer Stinger .I did a search and found one guy that said they wouldnt extract and ripped off the rim in his 541S.

My 541-S would not extract unfired rounds when I tried Stingers in it. I called Remington and was told that my rifle had a "match" chamber with a shorter throat that allowed the slightly longer cartridge's bullet to be lodged in the rifling, causing the extractors to pull off the case. My 541-T sporter does the same thing but my 541-T HB does not. This took place just prior to the introduction of Remington's hyper-velocity 22LR rounds and I was told that they would not have the longer case of the other such cartridges for that reason.

Fire just fine from my 2nd year 541-s The chambers were NOT match chambers! The guns just shot well, we have been thru this subject many times it seems.

They weren't custom shop guns, but just fancy production rifles. Nothing special about the barrel other than a tapered sporter barrel with a "tighter" chamber than the 541-T HB and or 580 - 581- 582 and the 541-X rifles.

Remington denies a match chamber, but has been proven over and over again that they ARE tighter regardless of anyone's denials.

There are so many different "match" chamber specs, that it's almost a blanket term. So it is possible that the 541-S and 541-T sporter barrel, could be a light "match" chamber.

Some companies I believe do not want you to run Stingers in their "match" chambers. They say they will damage them due to the longer brass.

Why would you run the risk in a rifle that costs 1-3k? Do you really think you'll get "more" from the stinger?

Ok, so it seems half have used them with no problem and half wouldnt or had a problem. So I decided to try and see if it would insert and cycle and extract. I tried them with all 3 differant magazines, the original plastic, the nylon and the steel . They all worked!! So its time to try them at the range. Why? Just because its another brand with differant specs. Ive had great success with them in the past out of a Colt NF revolver and Marlin 22 rifles. I highly doubt it would harm my rifle.

Can't argue with that logic...

Well I guess some are more risk averse than others. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Oh... FYI:
•WARNING:Your rifle is a self-loading .22 caliber designed for .22Long Rifle High
Velocity cartridges only (not Hyper-Velocity) (from Marlin's website) So you haven't done any damage that you can see) (yet)

So tell me again, why you'd want to put all sorts of unnecessary strain on the extractor and possibly damage the single most critical determiner of accuracy (the barrel throat) by cramming a Stinger into the chamber?

You do know that CCI Velocitor is a far superior round and as fast as the Stinger. The new copper goes 1850fps...

You claim its a match barrel. Why shoot Stingers?

I have a 541-T.

I only shoot standard velocity Match ammo in my Remington.

Do as you wish.

UH your specs are not correct- CCI Velocitor .22LR Ammunition 50 Rounds 40 Grain HP 40 Grain 1,435 Feet Per Second
22 Long Rifle 32 Grain Hollow Point Stinger 50 Rounds
by CCI AMMUNITION Muzzle Velocity 1640 fps

Do you really think the manufacturer would seperate the description of high velocity from hyper velocity? My rifles are modern steel and they shoot as good today as they did when they were made. Im not a bench target shooter looking for 1/10" groups here. Looking at my notes getting less than an inch at 50 yards is plenty accurate for minute of squirrels head . and hollow points make for a cleaner kill from my experience.
