If you want to become a better marksman, you need to get some serious range time in with your rifle. Remember, there’s no such thing as too much ammunition or too much range time, and thanks to Silver Bear, you can afford both. Silver Bear is a branch of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant, a company with almost 150 years in business. They use a special bimetal layering process alternating copper and steel to create steel cases which they then berdan prime to ensure ignition and coat with a polymer for reliable cycling. The process saves money, and those savings are passed on to you, making shooting in high volumes possible.

These are relatively lightweight 55 grain rounds, so they’re going to fly down-range at fantastic speeds. This is Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) ammunition, so it doesn’t expand on impact. As with any time you hit the range or your preferred outdoor spot, make sure you have a reliable backstop in place. Each round leaves the barrel of your rifle with enough velocity to reach out and touch your target incredibly fast and impacts with serious energy. This ammunition is great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.

When you place your order for this box of ammunition from Silver Bear/Barnaul you get 500 target rounds. You’re going to burn through it faster than you probably think, so you might want to consider ordering two boxes so you don’t run out too quickly. Thanks to the steel cases these rounds are economically priced, so you can afford more than one box. Barnaul manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Barnaul, Russia, according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. Order now and feed your gun, and then feed it some more. Because you can.
