A Puzzlement

I have a H and R pistol, model 604. Serial no AU139234. Nice condition, from Gardner Mass., barrel about 7 inches. On the barrel is imprinted 22WMRF . So I went out to shoot several new 22WMR rounds and the shells would not eject easily and had to be hammered out of the cylinder with a rod. So did I shoot the wrong cartridge in this pistol? What cartridge should I be shooting? It shoots really well! The 22magnum shell casings appear to have swelled in the cylinder preventing easy removal. What am I doing wrong? Is 22WMRF a lower powered cartridge to the 22WMR? What have I missed here?
