Silver Bear is a subsidiary of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant. Barnaul can trace its roots all the way back to 1869, when the company was founded by the order of Aleksander I. At the time there weren’t really any ammunition factories in the region, and getting them built was a step in the right direction when it came to increasing safety and military capabilities. In fact, during World War II Barnaul supplied the nation’s military with literally half the ammunition they used to fight. Over the years the company has been forced to move a few times but they’ve been in the same place since the end of World War II, and today they distribute their ammunition all over the world.
These Silver Bear/Barnaul rounds are made for your .223 Remington-chambered rifle. At 62 grain they’re pretty lightweight, so they’re going to rush towards targets like lightning. They’re Soft Point (SP) rounds and begin to expand on impact. SP rounds expand more slowly than HPs, decelerating as they penetrate to create substantially-sized, catastrophic wound channels. Because they slow down as they expand, over-penetration is prevented, which helps protect innocent bystanders. This ammunition is designed for hunting game up to the size of whitetail deer.
You get 20 SP rounds in this box of ammunition. This box is a good size for slipping in your pocket when you head out on a hunt or stacking up in your safe for future use, after all, every gun owner should have a stash of ammunition for a rainy day. There’s not much worse than wanting to go hunting or to the range and finding out you don’t have any ammo, and can’t get any easily. Barnaul manufactures this ammunition at their factory in Barnaul, Russia, according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. These are steel-cased rounds with berdan primer; Barnaul produces them this way to save you money and allow you to shoot more without extra expenses. Before you head out on your next hunt, order a box of Silver Bear .223s.
