Have any of you been able get Aguila 60gr SSS ammo to work consistently in an AR-22 assembled with a CMMG conversion? If so, what modifications, if any, did you have to make?

I have trouble getting it to feed consistently in a 10/22. So much so, I bought a 1:9 barrel for a CZ 455 to shoot the SSS. The issue I find, is the long lead bullet easily gets pushed out of alignment with the axis of the cartridge causing it to miss entering the chamber.

I don't know how one would go about correcting that short of copying the Remington 341 feeding mechanism.

It feeds fine in my AR22 builds.

I got one of the CMMG conversions and had the same thought of running the 60 gn Aguila. But between work and destractions, I haven't even tried the setup. It seems like it should work better than 40 gn in an AR barrel.

Update: Here's my setup and what I ended up doing to get the SSS to work consistently, and I mean perfectly.
RTB 16" .22 barrel
CMMG bolt for .22 barrel
BoreBuddy 3lb. recoil spring
Standard AR15 hammer spring
BoreBuddy pressure plug
S&W(with Catch22 mag adapter) or Black Dog and even Chiappa magazines
Catch22 V1 bolt catch

So far, every variety of subsonic .22 I've tried works flawlessly, to include the SSS, Remington, CCI, and Winchester. The only thing that won't cycle is "Quiet", but I didn't expect it to. The bolt will lock back every time when using S&W magazines.
