Silver Bear ammunition is made by the Barnaul Machine Plant and gets its name from the zinc plated steel cases that give it a silverish appearance. The Barnaul plant produced half of the ammunition used by Soviet forces during World War II. Today, it is a private business that produces several different lines of ammo as well as metal target devices. Barnaul ammo uses non-corrosive Berdan primers and is not reloadable.
