Its a dirty chamber. The carbon from burning the powder can leave a hard crusty ring, that eventually interferes with the way the bullet sits in the chamber. Which can result in poorer accuracy. One built up It doesnt come out with general cleaning. You must scrub it out with a chamber brush, slightly bigger than a bore brush, and some harsher solvent than you might normally use. So if your accuracy falls off after a bunch, 3000+ rounds you might have to give the chamber a good scrubbing.

Here's another thread about the carbon ring and a specific product: Goof Off.

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum....php?t=1138751

Good product, but don't get it on your wooden stock. It will damage the finish.

Good luck!

A bore cleaner solvent , like shooters choice, will remove the carbon ring but it will take several applications where you apply , let it soak then brush it . Just be sure and use a nylon or bronze bristle brush that DOES NOT have a steel wrap in the center holding the bristles on the rod. The core can shift and scratch the bore in your 22 and damage its accuracy.
Every time I go shoot , when I get home, I put a squirt of WD40 in the bore , from the chamber end, and it keep any fouling soft until I can give the gun a more thorough cleaning. I like pull through cleaning devices with tight fitting patches. They get the barrel clean , visually --I don't have a bore scope, but small flakes of lead on a tight patch means something is happening. I have also heard from another member that Blue Armadillo solution works quite well to clean the bore and he verified this opinion with a bore scope !
