Ammo Overview

Ammo Quantity - 500 rounds per case; 20 rounds per box
Ammo Manufacturer - Brown Bear
Projectiles Bullets - 145 grain full metal jacket (FMJ)
Ammo Casings - Berdan-primed steel


Want to keep your barrel hot without spending a lot? Shoot some ‘chucks without spending big bucks? Fire lead without wasting bread? Then all you need is Brown Bear. This 308 Win cartridge features a very cost-effective steel casing, so it does away with the copper filled brass that contributes much to the high price of ammo. Sure, this round isn’t to give you what you need to handload, but if you didn’t intend to pore over its shell at a reloading press anyway then you’ll love how much dinero it saves you!

Brown Bear takes its name from the distinctive color of the lacquer that coats its steel casing. That safeguards the round against corrosion, and furthermore promotes smooth feeding and extraction in semi-auto and bolt action alike. This round’s 145 grain projectile dons the full metal jacket that lets a target shooting bullet shoot cleaner, and the round’s Berdan primer is non-corrosive to give it longevity. Great value from Russia!

A: This ammo is acceptable for use in any .308 Win rifle. If you are happy with it in your semi auto, you will most likely be happy with it in a bolt gun.

A: The differences between brass and steel won't make much of a difference during break-in. Steel does behave differently - it doesn't expand like brass, which means that the case doesn't seal against the walls of the chamber. This will allow additional fouling in the chamber. However, as long as steel ammo continues to be used, this does not really matter. If a lot of steel is shot before brass and the chamber is not cleaned, the fouling can cause minor dimensional changes which will affect function.

A: Ammunition companies have found that hunting ammunition is most often purchased and used in quantities of 20 or less, so they generally do not offer this type of cartridge in bulk.
