Like the 17hmr that they just advertised, more'n likely a relabeled CCI product.
I'll try 'em both and find the manufacturers date code on the box.
50 at 200 needs some more products to try.

The box says RUAG which makes great 22lr IMHO.

Yep, but unlikely that RUAG has tooled up to produce 17 hmr or 22wmr at bargain prices
when CCI will be happy to manufacture and label for them and still show a profit.
Shipping is expensive across the pond, eh?
No matter, when it's available it'll be easy enough to figure out where it's made.


Sure looks like the styrene plastic box used for Federal, Hornady, Remington and CCI 17hmr and 22wmr.
All produced by CCI.....

One of these pics seems to show a different bullet shape.

4 to 6 cents a round, what do you think the quality will be like?

Geco 22LR is made in Germany by RWS. It's pretty good ammo at 5 cents/round. Like any low cost ammo, some lots will be good and some so so.

UPC

I searched the UPC/Barcode from the Norma box and came up with nothing.

I hate to argue, but my case of Geco Rifle 22 is clearly marked "MADE IN GERMANY".

Same with cases of Norma Tac-22 and Match 22. Cases marked "Made in Germany".

RUAG may have a presence in Florida, but they aren't making their 22 ammo there. Not that it really matters.

OK ammo. But try in your gun. It will hold the 10 on our 100 meter(110yards) targets with most rifles. It is 2 23⁄64in (60mm).

My Walther loves them but my Winchester throws them all over

I'd like to see a better image of the bullet. It may be a Game Point.

I've been working on a brick of Geco Semi-Auto, which I found locally for $27. I thought it was worth the price to see how it shot. I'm glad I did.

It shoots pretty well at 50 yards out of my CZ 512, but that rifle shoots everything pretty well. It also shoots pretty good in my two 452s and my 455 Scout. "Pretty good" means 3/4" or under at 50 yards, ten shot groups. It makes me happy, and it's fairly priced (at least at the pawnshop where I found it. The shop's owner's kid is a rimfire nut, and he is liable to order all kinds of interesting ammo).
If you can get some locally, it would be worth investigating. This particular brick is shooting better than a brick of SK Standard Plus I bought about the same time.
