My 15-22 was bought less than a year ago and has less than 1000 rounds through it.
With hot Aguila Interceptor 40grain ammo, I can barely get through 2 or 3 rounds before having a failure to fire.
With CCI mini mags (40grain solid) I get a failure to fire once every magazine or so. Maybe I can go 2 magazines without a failure.
With standard bulk ammo, I get somewhere in between, like 1-3 failures per magazine.

I know this isn't normal. It's really annoying. What do you suggest?

I would return it to the factory for inspection & repair. I have not had more than a dozen in 7 years, and those didnt fire on strike 2 either

As with ALL .22's being clean is paramount. Sounds like a firing pin channel cleaning problem .. I would start there. !
