This round’s bullet offers a simple, economical full metal jacket design: smooth feeding, clean shooting, and non-expanding. The most important thing to “bear” in mind is that Brown Bear uses steel in their bullet jacket to cut down on production costs. If your range bans magnetic ammo, they’re certainly banning this particular ammo.
This round’s case is made of cost-effective steel as well. Along with its non-corrosive Berdan primer it’s pretty much a no-go at the reloading bench, but that’s hardly a great loss if you hadn’t planned on handloading anyway. Brown Bear gets their name from the distinctive colored lacquer they apply to their case to protect it from rust. You shouldn’t use this ammo to hunt brown bear, because that animal that would gladly use your AK-47 as a toothpick.
