Ammo Overview

Quantity - 20 rounds per box; 25 boxes per case
Manufacturer - Brown Bear
Bullets - 55 grain full metal jacket (FMJ)
Casings - Berdan primed steel


This 223 ammo by Brown Bear features a 55 grain full metal jacket great for target practice at an affordable price point. This Russian made ammo features lacquered cases which is why the ammo has a brown hue and the lacquer coating is designed to improve feeding and extracting reducing the friction of the case. The bullets have bi-metal jackets (like most Russian ammo) which contains some steel in the jacket so check with your ranges first if they have any restrictions against using ammo that is attracted to a magnet.

This ammo comes packaged in a 500 round case with 25 boxes of 20 rounds each. If you're looking for low cost 223 ammo for your AR-15 and aren't into reloading, then steel cased ammo may be a good fit for you.

A: This ammo may work for your rifle, but most ARs, regardless of brand, have issues with steel cased ammunition. For 100% reliability you should stick with brass cased ammo.

A: Hello Jeff, This Brown Bear ammunition is loaded with a lead core, bi-metal jacket projectile. Due to the steel content in a bi-metal jacket, this ammunition will not pass any type of magnet test.
