Brown Bear Ammo is manufactured by Brown Bear and is known as a high quality ammunition. Brown Bear gets its name from its casings which are made out of lacquered steel.
Brown Bear manufactures this ammo using Berdan priming to ensure long shelf life and guaranteed fire ignition! Berdan priming is primarily used by all militaries and many civilian manufacturers to discourage reloading. Along with being non-reloadable, Brown Bear ammo is non-corrosive. If you are looking for a bargain priced ammo to practice your target shooting skills... Brown Bear is one of the best buys for your dollar!
Brown Bear ammo is manufactured at Barnaul Machine Plant located in Russia.

Ordered a case for the range, package arrived discrete, intact, and way quicker than I’m used to for ammunition orders. No issues with the ammunition itself, and I will definitely be ordering more in the future.

Not awesome but not awful. It works fine for just messing around with my cheap 1928 Mosin.

Adequate practice/range ammo for the price
Review by Jeffrey
Nothing to write home about, but it'll keep you on the range. Ammunition functioned well in my S&W Shield 9mm and older S&W 469 with no malfunction. Shoots a little dirty, & leaves quite a bit of residue. Best value for cheap, bulk practice ammo. Shipping was very fast. Thank you, Lucky Gunner!

I believe this is what I ordered here recently. Good cheap range ammo, and even the dude walking around stealling spent casings will leave you alone because they can't reload these. Win/Win .223 Win.

Good Low Cost Ammo but One Problem
Review by Daniel
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.

some of the best range AK ammo
Review by bill hudson
Im serious..Ive been a cheapy for range and target shooting Ive been through TulAmmo and Wolf alike...now here is the odd thing about this ammo..I found out by accident when sighting in my scopes...that the other two groupings would be about 4-7 inch difference and just as inconsistent....when I tried a box of Bear...suddenly I got my groups straight and sighted in IMMEDIATELY with less than 2 inch groups....at 100yds...never going back

The best steel cased ammo you can get
Review by Bix VT
I was wary about putting steel cased ammo through my AR, so I did my research and discovered that Brown Bear was the best quality in the Russian made steel cased ammo sector. My ammo arrived in boxes of 20, and I didn't have a single failure in the 300 rounds I fired at the range that day. I was very impressed at this, as my previous experience with steel cased ammo was Tula in 7.62, and that had many more failures, usually 1-2 in each 30 round mag. Accuracy was good as well, my local indoor range maxes out at 25yd, but at that range I didn't notice a difference in accuracy when compared to the Federal I had been firing previously (that would likely change as the range increases though)
All 300 rounds were fired through an S&W M&P15 Sport II.

Review by Brent
Used in an IWI Tavor and never had any feed issues or malfunctions in all 500 rounds. I was worried the coating might melt but I never had an issue even after rapid shots and suppressor shots despite the heat of the rifle. I don't reload so why spend the extra $$$ for brass I won't use.
