Anybody else have issues with a 597 sovereign piping or misfires? I've always been a remington guy but this thing has me wishing I bought a 10-22. If I use jacketed bullets it's not bad but if it's an all lead bullet I have issues. Even had cases blog apart with the lead bullets. Have heard of head spacing issues on the 597 but not sure. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Not opinion on brand, just the facts please!

I inherited one and all I can say is it is a POS. The trigger is horrible and the accuracy worse. I have had a few issues with cycling but nothing to complain about. The 10-22 is a great semi-auto. Yes you should have bought the Ruger IMO.
