Browning 22LR bulk ammo

I stopped in Academy Sports this morning. I found something there I have not seen in my area. They had Browning 22LR bulk ammo. It was reasonably priced. It was 400 rounds for $22.95. I am going to give it a try in my Ruger MKIII's and Victory 22. I read it was to be made by Winchester to Brownings specifications. I hope it is good ammo. Winchester bulk is not very good. It has more FTF and FTE than any other bulk ammo and not very accurate either.

Anybody tried it?

It has the same oxide coating as the M-22 ammo which both my SR22 rifle and pistol consume with no issues.

Winchester and Browning are both Belgian companies owned by FN Herstal.

I haven't tried the Browning but I've shot a lot of the Winchester 333, I think the 333 is just the number of rounds. It shoots good in both my auto's and Single Six.
The only thing I don't like is it's a little tight in my Single Six cylinder, some must be pushed in with some force. Unlike some other .22 ammo I've shot.

Browning .22 works fine in both my SR .22's.

I tried it, and wasn't impressed. Few misfires, but it seemed accurate enough when it did go off. This ammo is what convinced me to just stick with CCI.

The Winchester M-22 does not function 100% in my Ruger MKIII or 22/45 Lite.
It does in my SR22 pistol and a small Jennings 22.
I guess I beat up Winchester bulk too much and it is the most accurate in a Taurus 94B5 revolver I have. The WW in th 100 round plastic boxes is top grade.

This probably belongs on Range Reports, but since I started the post here I'll finish it here. I finally dedcided to shoot some of the Browning 22 LR, which I understand is made by Winchester for Browning. I have been very busy and when I did shoot I wanted to shoot the GP100 or 686.
I took my Ruger MKIII Hunter with a red dot sight back to my range with several different brands of ammo. The first shots I fired were with CCI AR Tactical as a control target. They were terrible. I then shot 10 rounds of the Browning. Worse. I decided something was wrong. Well it was. The rail to which my Red Dot was mounted was very loose. I removed the sight and tightened the rail and fired again. Here is what I found out.
The CCI AR Tactical was very accurate, as I knew it would be. (Just a note it will not feed reliably in my 22/45 Lite for some reason.)
The Browning bulk 22 LR from a 400 round box had acceptable accuracy. Out of 100 rounds I had one fail-to-fire. It fired on the second try.
The Winchester M-22, which looks much like the Browning, had 2 fail-to-fire out of 30 rounds and 2 fail-to-feed. The accuracy was acceptable.
The Remington Golden Bullet HP bulk ammo had no problems with about 50 rounds. The Remington was also more accurate than the Browning or Winchester, but not better than the CCI. :
At a computed price of $28 for a brick of 500 I would buy the Browning again.
On an additional note, in the Hunter the Winchester bulk HP 555 or 333 has many fail-to-fire and accuracy is terrible. The only ammo worse in that gun is Federal AutoMach. Same parent company as CCI and they should be ashamed to sell that ammo.
