Why is my Browning a5 not ejecting shells?
If it is cycling and not ejecting I would take a look at the extractor. You can check the operation by removing the recoil spring and cycle the gun with empty hulls in the magazine by pulling the barrel back to the stop. If it is not cycling check the mag tube for rust and other damage, and try a different ammo.

Using .22 shot shells in a semi auto 22 rifle is about like putting cello strings on your guitar.
Why is my Browning A5 turning into one shot gun?
The failure to correctly and flawlessly remove a shell from the magazine and cycle it to the chamber does happen. The relationship between the bolt latch and the shell stop could be the culprit. In fact, the first A5 I received in September of 2012 demonstrated such a severe problem that it turned into a one shot gun.
What kind of shells do Browning A5s use?
