Good Low Cost Ammo but One Problem
I tested this ammo with a Beretta 92FS and PX4 Compact
This ammo is steel ammo that has a lacquer coating. As you can see in the pictures it is a brown/greenish hue on the casings. It is definitely slippery and helps with feeding however there is one issue which I will point out. Overall quality is on par with steel low cost ammo.
This ammo as far as performance is on par with it's Russian counter parts from Tula and Wolf. Accuracy is acceptable for low cost range training ammo.
Value is good too though not as cheap as Tula and around the same or near Wolf.
Now the one problem, the coating on this ammo when fired eventually starts to give off a odd smell. I don't know if the coating is necessarily "burning" but, it is definitely an unpleasant odor and I suspect is not good for you. I would say this is a decent low cost ammo and of better quality then Winchester Forged but, I personally will stay with Tula and Wolf because their coatings down give off that scent when shot.
I have shot about 3,000 rounds of the 9mm brown bear in my glocks in the last year. No problems at all. Not one. I think it smells a little more than other ammo, and maybe it's just a little dirtier. But it's well worth it for the much lower price. I have had many problems with silver bear though, and won't buy that again.
I had (3) jams out 30 firings. I am not sure if it was the ammo or my rugger. other than that I was very pleased
this will not keep me from buying the Brown Bear ammo.I was very pleased with the ammo. Thank you for letting me post my review. Bill B
This was my first ammo purchase on line and I'm glad I chose Lucky Gunner. I haven't shot my ammo yet but it was at my door in three days. I like the fact that if it is not in stock you don't have to see it on the web sight. I am looking forward to my next purchase and have told friends and family about Lucky Gunner.
Purchased this ammo based on the price, even though the price was still considerably high for my liking, but hey that's the way of the current gun/ammo culture. For performance I gave it a 5. I did not experience and issues with it at all. The performance, well....let's say it'll get the job done at the end of the day!!
Price wise it was better than most 9mm, but still higher than what I was use to paying before.
Brwon Bears 9 mm is good for my Glock
Recently I bought my first pistol, Glock 34. It is a 9 mm pistol with extended barrel. I purchased 500 rounds of Brown Bears from Luckygunner. after several shooting out. I found they are very good for the price and I haven't find any thing wrong yet. As a beginner my shooting accuracy is about 8.0 at 50 feet. Maybe I should attribute it to the Glock 34 but at least the Brown Bears 9mm did not spoil the accuracy. Beside, I haven't got any problems for jams. Again, it might be mainly due to the quality of Glock. after shooting the pistol was not dirty as someone claimed.
Overall I would rate this a very valuable ammo. at least for practice.
For Outdoor Use Only
I recently had the same problem as Arty. When getting ready to use these rounds at a local in-door range, the range master approached me and said they were unacceptable for use because they have a steel core in the tip and they richochette. He then produced a magnet and the round stuck to the bullet. He also said the steel core would wear the barrel faster which makes sense. Otherwise I had no problem with the ammo when I did get to use it at an outdoor range.
