Has anybody shot any of the Browning ammunition? I have a chance to get a deal on some and was wondering if it's any good. Thanks for any info

Yes, I have and no, they aren't any good. The only deal would be a very, very low cost with even lower expectations. I believe it may be rebranded Winchester floor sweepings.

Shot some today at the range from a friend's stash. Neither my CZ 455 American nor his custom 10/22 shot it well. My CZ is no tack driver but his 10/22 is usually a laser with green mountain barrel, kidd trigger and bell and carlson stock. I gave him some of my Aguila HV ammo and his 10/22 shot it spectacularly well. So much so that he instantly got on the phone and ordered a case.

OOPS! sorry, I thought you meant .22LR ammo....never mind!

IGNORE! I misread and thought it was about 22lr ammo***

I won't be buying it again, not for my Browning Buckmark anyhow.

They make a Vuckmark in .17WSM? (Assuming the OP is actually asking about .17WSM and not .22LR then it's mis-posted)

Anyway Browning doesn't make any ammo, it's Federal or Winchester most likely and in .17WSM it's as good or bad as any other. It's NOT target ammo.

I have misposted! Just saw Browing and assumed 22lr.

My humblest apologies!

When you discuss the 17wsm cartridges, remember this,
only Winchester manufactures 17wsm ammunition.
All the other brands are relabeled Winchester production.


Results of all 17wsm brands at 200 yards, bottom of linked page...

Browning does not manufacture any rimfire ammunition. None.
No 22lr, no 17 hmr, no 17 wsm. It's all Winchester production
The label on the box is a Browning trademark.
The cartridges inside the box are all Winchester.
Winchester has had a contract to do so for Browning, a long, long time.
