Wlaking thru the new Gander Mtn. store today I spotted boxes of Winchester branded .17HMR. I was quite surprised by this.

When did Winchester decide to join the fight?

Is this another case of re-branding and CCI is still making all of it?

Anyone offer any results using Winchester .17HMR ammo?

Thanks All!

I saw some of this ammo in th Big City this weekend. It was $1.24 more than the CCI and the ranchers were buying it up! I overheard one guy wondering aloud if it would shoot better than the CCI and offered up that it was made by CCI no matter who's brand it wore. The guy didn't believe me because, he said, it would/should then all sell for the same price. "Not if someone is willing to pay more for a label.",I replied. Sure left a sour look on his face.~Andrew
