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.
