Keep your chamber clean and fingers crossed, I've had no problems with Eley, some slight doming of the heads of the brass with Hornady and two Kabooms with early CCI (first run). Fun little rifle if you respect its needs.

This says it in a nutshell. I never experienced one with my Thompson Center R55, but the constant worry caused me to sell it. I kept a bore snake at my side and used it often during shooting sessions.

Set a limit of 40-50 rounds and then clean the barrel and especially the chamber.

I had one for a short time and only fired about 50 rds through it. Pushing the bolt handle forward before every shot. I was leery of having a Kaboom myself. When I had the opportunity to trade for a 917m2 bolt action, I did. The bad news was the fellow that I traded to had a little Kaboom on the first magazine. He then cleaned it and had another Kaboom, but this time it cracked the stock.
I was leery, I was lucky.
If you're leery of it, make sure the bolt is closed before each shot and you should be fine.
I've heard that even the ruger 10/22's that have been converted to 17 mach2 can have Kabooms.

What is everyone using to clean their chambers for this issue? Cleaner and the tool(s)?

I use jags and patches on all of my small bore rimfires. Should I use a brush and just poke it in and out of the chamber area?

Chamber brush, followed by Patchwork (there is a .17cal version) has done it for me.

THIS is your friend- link for ideas/ref. only... it is threaded 8/32 for 22 cal. and bigger brushes so it wont work with the smaller 5/40 threads on the 17 brushes/mops https://www.gunsmithertools.com/prod...p-chamber-tool
So...
If ya have a sectional P.O.Crap cleaning rod (such as http://www.copquest.com/kleenbore-mu...ds_65-2401.htm) cut it down and make your own handle... then go buy you a good 1 pc. BORE cleaning rod. With Semi's all I use in the Bore is a BoreSnake from the Chamber end.... never a rod from the muzzle.

Otherwise.. yes your pokie in and outie of the chamber is the way to do it with a Bent Bore Brush = awkward ... needs a extension/handle.
