Browning .17HMR

Local gun shop has these on sale for 7.00/box, but I have never shot any. Is Browning discontinuing this ammo? Salesman did not know, he just knew it was on sale. At that price I may buy all I can. Made by Winchester?

I've never even seen a box of Browning 17HMR. But you are probably correct in assuming that they are made by Winchester.

Winchester manufactures all Browning rimfire.
Winchester factory date codes can be found on the boxes.

I think I will buy a box and try it before I buy a bunch. Not a huge fan of .22 Winchester ammo anymore, but maybe their .17 is good, I don't know.

Winchester 17HMR shoots just fine in my Anschutz 1517M<PR...very good accuracy and no FTFs.

Just have to watch for those annoying Winchester factory recalls.
Just like the one they had last couple months for the 20 grain 17 hmr.
