Ruger Single Six Cylinder Jam

I purchased a Ruger Single Six a while back and have noticed a recurring problem with the .22LR cylinder. Basically, one chamber seems to jam up keeping the cylinder from rotating. If I really clean out the chamber well it gets a little better, but starts jamming up after about 25 rounds or so. Just wondering if this is typical for these or if I should send it back to Ruger. I love the gun otherwise, but it's kind of a pain to shoot like it is.

I had the same thing with a FA 252. Chambers were too tight for my ammo.
It was a match grade cylinder. Gun shoots 3/8" at 50 yards for it's new match shooter.

I went with a Single Six as well. I would suggest trying the .224" Paco Kelly tool
for your ammo. Also, have that one chamber reamed out by a really good gunsmith, or, send it to Ruger. Of course, they are the ones that screwed it up in the first place, and, you'll pay a lot of money to ship it back, and have it worked on by a minimum wage gunsmith, just learning...
Still, this isn't rocket science...
