Browning Target Ammo?

The wife is taking another shooting class in a couple of weeks. We wanted to get in some practice so we picked up some extra target ammo from Cabela's, Browning. Now she consistantly keeps her groups to about 4" at 7 to 10 yards but shooting this Browning ammo had only one group, 7 out of 8 within 8" and was lucky to hit the target at all. Our next time out I'm switching her back to Blazer and I will try the Browning.
The wife shoots a S&W M&P9 Shield, could it be that gun just doesn't like the new ammo?
I was shootpng my new P320 Sig and need more prctice. I don't try for Bullseye shooting due to some palsey in my right hand but have consistantly been grouping 4 to 6" with most of my pistoles but noticed I have a trigger position problem with the P320 that I haave to overcome, either that or go back to my M&P9. I have never had this issue with my P226 but I am trying to back to 9s and wanted something different than my Glocks. PS: I like my Glocks!

Your thoughts?

Only Browning ammo I've shot was the .22LR. I consider that just average ammo. It shot fine, but no better than other brands. I know the Browning rimfire is actually made by Winchester, not sure about their 9mm.

Sorry to report that our experience with the Browning 22 LR Performance Target is similar. It's actually a HV load at 1255 fps and that's usually a good choice in an ammo-fussy autoloader, but not this stuff. Even jammed with our very reliable Ruger Marks and definitely a no go in the Victory. We'll be shooting up what's left in our revolvers for plinking purposes. Also, less accurate than Automatch in the Rugers.

Did some research, supposed to be the same as their BXP ammo. At about 12 or so yards shot a consistent foot low. Guess we'll see how the Blazer compares in the same situation.

Thanks for the replies.

Well, day two, shot the Browning ammo in my Sig P320, did just fine. Wifie shot with the CCI Blazer and was back on target. Guess her Shield doesn't like Browning.
The Blazer is 115gr @ 1145fps, the Browning is 147gr @ 900fps at muzzle.
Next time out going to try my M&P9 for another comparison.
