Most any 22lr except CCI Stingers. Get a few various boxes and shot it out to find what yours likes best.

Let me add Federal Automatch to the list. Has run reliably in several Mk pistols, and quite accurate at my normal shooting distance which is 15 yards.

I'm currently using my MkIII to shoot bullseye competition at my local range, and it is really liking CCI Std. Velocity rounds. No FTF's and it is accurate enough from my 22/45 to have gotten me a 289/300 on Monday. They're not terribly finicky pistols.

Mine runs perfectly on Federal Automatch, which is quality bulk ammo, if there is such a thing. But it does fine with any decent 22 high velocity or std velocity ammo that isn't Remington. Stick to Winchester, Aquila, CCI, Federal and it should do well.

Rimfire .22lr are ammo picky so take the suggestions from above, shoot them all and see which your gun likes. If you are looking for maximum accuracy, you should also try some more expensive ammo like Eley, Lapua, Wolf, etc.

I also tried many different brands to see if they would function.
Rem. Goldens had the typical problem of primer problems (I don't know if they've cured that yet?). Most would shoot, but some did not.
Strictly using CCI Mini Mag 40gr. and they are almost perfect in my MK III and MK IV Lites.
Also using them in my MK IV stainless Target, Competition, and Hunter without problems.

Feed ramp

I had to do a little dressing on my MkII feed ramps to make it eat everything. now it doesn't miss a beat. Recently fell back in love with 22lr shooting. I see Volquatrsen taking quite a bit of my money soon.

I've been using CCI Std. Velocity in my 5.5" 22/45 for bullseye pistol league to pretty darn good effect.
