Latest delivery of rimfire for the 50 at 200 included the Norma 17 hmr and 22 wmr.
It's CCI made magnum rimfire with the Norma label on the box.
If you ever used CCI ammo, you know what to expect.
Some batches are decent, some are less than desirable.

Yes, it's CCI with a Norma label.
Tried both the 22wmr and 17 hmr.
Hunting ammo, not precision target ammo.

Compare the results for yourself against all the other brands.
I've tried all the 22wmr and 17hmr currently sold.
The link below is a list in alphabetical order of the different brands
with links to the targets and chronograph numbers they produced.

Thanks for the link to your research - interesting to read.

Never seen any "Browning" .17HMR ammo for sale here in the UK but did once have some Sellier & Bellot .17HMR ammo which I was really pleased with, but for which I could only get the 1 brick and I've never been able to get it ever again

Didn't do the work you have to catalogue it, however the rabbits thought it was doing a good job.

Thatís some impressive testing.

Have you ever overlaid all the groups to see which was the best and which was the worse?

Frank, best results have ### next to it.

Of all the rimfire tested, Eley Match 22lr was about the best
due to the skill of the shooter and rifle/setup used.

Some SK Biathlon Sport 22lr did pretty decent also.

All the 17 wsm tried, did well.

Here's the link to all the results...

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum....php?t=1129343

The 17hmr did decent with one box, then the next box not as well.
Neither CCI or Winchester manufacture anything but hunting/plinking rimfire ammo.

Have you ever ran 17hm2 ammo? specifically old Eley ammo?

I would love for Anschutz to convince them to run more of that

Frank, never tried any 17hm2.
I have the 17hmr and never felt the need for the smaller cartridge.

It'd be great to have someone add to the 50 at 200 thread with 17hm2 and 5mm rimfire.

If I get another barrel thatís decent then maybe I will give it a go. The 50 yard (indoor range) will be pretty easy but the 200 for accuracy the wind where I shoot is pretty bad.
