Your friend must have got hold of some of that Colibri that so many stores were selling to unsuspecting customers. It is primer only powered for "gallery" and close up pest control work in pistols. OP has HV that I've used without any problems in my Model 60s.There are several different flavors of Aquila 22's. Not sure what the last box was that my friend bought but it was way dirty, under powdered, wouldn't function a semi auto pistol and was not power consistent from shot to shot. I won't buy the stuff.
The SV works fine in my Model 60s. All I've done to them is polish the bolt and receiver and keep them clean. The point is moot, though, because the OP has HV.Most standard and target velocity does not cycle at all or is hit and miss in all my semi autos, long and short. I'm sure they could be modified to work, but that would require a reversal of spring weight to work with high velocity ammo. The 39As and bolt guns handle it just fine. I try to remember to feed mine accordingly. I do like the lower velocity for target work.
I have a box of Remington 525 count "Golden Bullet Value Pack" .22 LR brass-plated HP. that do almost the same thing. No misfires but some pop and some wiz.I bought several boxes a few years ago and still have most of them. I experienced misfires and no fires with them. I had some that went off with primer strikes on other parts of the rim. I had some that went "pop" and flew several feet below line of sight at nominal ranges.
I will never buy it again.
I am not aware of any Aguila with a 36gr HP, but they do make 30/38/40gr HP stuff. The Super Maximum 30gr and the Interceptor 40gr do run about $60/brick, and the extra performance is for foxes, raccoons, and groundhogs at extended range, or even coyotes where rimfires are required. (Or for making squirrel/rabbit burger). I sight in the rifle, and use it all season. I don't shoot it in rifles that don't shoot it well. It's not for use in semi-autos.I forgot to tell you all how much I paid for these Aguila. My wife picked them up and she did not know any better. Bless her heart for trying. With tax it cost around $60.00 for 500 count. I almost had a stroke.
