Out of the nearly 14k rounds I've fired through my SR22, by far Winchester has been the most inconsistent in terms of reliability. To my understanding, Browning 22lr is made by Winchester so I would expect the same results. I've had good success with CCI, Remington Golden, and Aguila. Try some different ammo and let us know how it works out.

+1 for the Winchester .22LR problems. Was shooting my Browning 1911-22 and my GSG 1911-22 Saturday. Shooting some Armscor, Aguila, and Federal and everything was fine in both guns. Ran out of those and opened up a sleeve of Winchester. I then suddenly had several duds in each magazine in each gun. Most of them did fire after ejecting and replacing in the magazine, but it was annoying to say the least.
As most people, my favorite ammo is CCI Mini-Mags, but those are simply hard to come by here locally. However, the Armscor and Aguila are very available and almost as reliable as the CCI. I have two more sleeves of the Winchester and I can't wait to get shoot them up. I will absolutely stay away from the Winchester .22 as long as anything else is available.

* I just fact checked myself on Google and there's some varying opinions as to which came first, the rimfire or the centerfire. One thing they agreed on was the rimfire was invented in 1845.

I too have a bad experience with Browning BPR in my new Victory. I not only had some duds, which all brands have, but they also would not load into the chamber because they are hollow point.
I had some CCI std vel. with me and ran 100 rds with absolutely no problems.
I am saving the Brownings for the bolt Mossberg
