Details

Brown Bear Steel cartridges are reminiscent of the cold war era rounds that came over from the Eastern Blok countries and Russia. They are a quality new manufacture with a lacquer case coating over a steel cartridge casing utilizing a Berdan primer for the ultimate in ignition reliability. The tell-tale aesthetics of the Brown Bear give it its name and the ammunition seems to perform as reliably as the ammunition it resembles from earlier decades. The projectile is a 55 grain FMJ that is copper clad and provides a good mix of ballistic performance and velocity for the round. This is the ultimate plinking round for the caliber. The price point is very good and offers shooters some versatility with the grain weight of the projectile being accurate across most of the popular barrel twist rates.

The round is very much in the middle of the ballistic performance index for the caliber. It is neither hot, nor underpowered. The steel provides a reliable vessel for shooting the rounds, without the bother of picking up the brass. The Berdan primer offers two ignition points. The powder charge elevates the speed to 3050, about midway through the pack in comparison to other mainstream producer’s speeds.

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.
