Made under their own label by someone else. Smith and wesson had ammo made by Fiocchi years ago.

Don't know about the 9mm, but the Browning .22 stuff is made by Winchester.

Have used the Browning brand .380 and 9MM without any problems.
Fired through the LCP Custom and Taurus TCP in .380.
Several Ruger 9MM's, including P89,93,95.& 9e.
Seems like a good value for a quality product.

Thanks ... for the price i figured it was worth a shot (no pun intended) ... I picked up some Fed AE in 9mm awhile back for roughly the same price as the Browing and it has shot well ...

Howdy,
Seems to me to be a question to ask BEFORE you bought any......
Anyway, now that you have some, shoot some and let us know...

Thanks,

Paul

I'll give a range report when i do get to the range ...

rm63 ... Winchester is manufacturing this proprietary/private labeled ammo for Browning. While I've yet to shoot any, from all I've heard it is a decent cartridge. Make sure to give us a detailed range report

My understanding is that Olin (parent company of Winchester) owns the patent.

No experience... yet! Where did you find that price? I'd be willing to take a chance on it for that price.

Finally got to shoot some of this ...

Well I finally got to shoot some of this Browning 9mm 115 grain ammo and it seemed to be pretty decent stuff. I only got to shoot roughly 10 rounds of it but it fed in my P93 nicely and grouped as well. More time will be needed to see but I think it will be worth the $$$$$$$$$$$$ that I spent on it.
