For general purpose ammo for the range and practice this ammo has functioned well in both Bushmaster and DTI AR platforms. I have used it for my annual qualifications for WACJTC armed security/private investigator/bail recovery patrol rifle certifications without any issues. I am currently using it for a Scoped Rifle Instructor course and is holding good groups at 200 yards. (Posted on 5/29/13)

I run this when I don't want to pick up my brass and it shoots great. Its doesn't leave that nasty black soot on everything like the Wolf does. Stuff functions great, cases are never out spec for size (like Tula is sometimes is).
I run this stuff mixed with brass case and never had any problems with stuck cases or FTE's. (Posted on 1/3/13)
Long Shelf Life

I have not shot that many rounds yet but so far I'm quite happy. Wanted to check the lacquer coating. Ran 30 rds through a very hot rifle with no jamming. These puppies have a real long shelf life if properly stored. Want to buy more but I want the FMJHP. (Posted on 6/19/12)

I posted last year...and now have shot over 1000 rounds in my ar15 spec'd at 5.56mm. Still have not cleaned the gun to see when it would start to jam or not cycle. Not one problem yet. Now I understand that everyone's rifle is different...but, after using other rounds...this one is awesome. Am about to order another 1000 rounds. (Posted on 1/25/12)
Great value...reliable...

I have only shot about 400 rounds with my AR15. I previously purchased steel cased ammo made in Russia. After about 100 rounds...jamming...chamber absolutely filthy. Would not cycle. This ammo seems to working just fine. As one other poster stated, it is dirty. All ammo is dirty after awhile...but, not 100 rounds. Thus far, very pleased with this ammo...and will order it again. But, we will see after another few hundreds rounds. Living in the country on a ranch, I can walk outside anytime and shoot. And will do so again today. So, the test continues. (Posted on 8/9/11)
Good value for range ammunition

I bought 500 rounds of Brown Bear to use as range ammo in a BCM 16" middy. I have had no malfunctions or failures with this ammo. Accuracy is acceptable at the 25, 50, and 100 yard stations at my public range. The nature of steel-cased ammunition means that there will be more fouling in the chamber and bolt carrier group than with brass-cased. This is to be expected and something we must accept when using this ammo. I will definitely buy more. (Posted on 7/2/11)

I shot several hundred rounds with no problems. Might be a Little dirty but you are going to clean your gun anyway. I will continue to buy this ammo for plinking! (Posted on 6/12/11)
Great Value for plinking--Hope you like to clean your AR

My husband and I shot 2000 rounds of this in a 2 week period w/out 1 miss fire. After we placed the order we heard a couple horror stories about this ammo and got worried but we had no trouble at all. Its the best value I've seen if you're addicted to shooting your AR like us.
It is dirty. The outside of our barrels even change colors and have to be thoroughly scrubbed down. It also leaves a red residue inside the rifle that comes off the bottom of the round. You should clean your rifle anyway and you will definitely have to after a magazines of this.
Just ordered 2000 more today.

We were shooting a Bushmaster A4 & Olympic Arms lower/Bushmaster A4 Upper (Posted on 5/28/11)

You hear some say it's great and some say it's terrible but I shot 500 rounds through a 10.5 inch AR-15 sbr without 1 problem of any kind. That my only experience with the brand but I will by it again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to shot affordable and isn't planing on reloading. (Posted on 5/19/11)

Q: I need to know if this uses a bi-metal (magnetic) bullet. I am going to be shooting steel targets and don't want to damage them.

Posted On: 5/3/12 By: Joe

A: This ammo has a bimetal jacket, but if your steel targets are 1/2" AR500 or better, which is what you should be using for high velocity .223/5.56, they will not become damaged. We shoot this ammunition at steel targets without issue.
