Ammo Overview

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


Seeking a reliable steel-cased practice round for your trusty AR-15? Look no further than this Silver Bear .223. Silver Bear is made at the Barnaul plant in Russia, and is cased in Berdan-primed zinc-plated steel. The 55 grain Full Metal Jacket bullet has a lead core with a combination of copper and steel in the jacket. Silver Bear uses zinc to extend the shelf life of the ammo.

The company that manufactures Silver Bear manufactures sister brands Brown Bear and Golden Bear. Its origins date back to 1869 when Emperor Alexander I had them open up in St. Petersburg to produce ammunition cartridges for the state military until moving to Moscow during their revolutionary civil war. During World War II, to hinder the supply chain of the German invading forces, they moved the plant to Barnaul where it remains today.
