Browning expands its BPR Performance lineup, adding new magnum calibers to the rimfire ammo series.
The new loads, .17 HMR and .22 Win Mag, are designed to offer better accuracy paired with “immediate and devastating expansion.” The ammo is designed specifically for small game and varmint hunters looking for improved lethality.
“Adding a .17 HMR and a .22 Win. Mag. offering to the Browning BPR Performance Rimfire line gives small game and varmint hunters more powerful rimfire options in the field,” Ben Frank, Browning Ammunition brand manager, said in a press release.
Browning says hunters can expect to see the 17 grain plastic tipped .17 HMR deliver velocity at 2,550 feet per second, while the 40 grain jacketed hollow point .22 Win Mag serves a velocity at 1,910 feet per second.
The .17 HMR variant will come in 50 round and 1,000 round boxes with prices starting around $25. The .22 Win Mag will offer the same boxing as the .17 HMR with prices starting around $12.99 for 50 rounds.
