There’s nothing more awesome than being a high-volume shooter, sending round after round down-range with no need to stop or slow down. Of course, being a high-volume shooter gets expensive, and because Silver Bear knows that, they’ve taken steps to save you money. For example, these rounds are produced using their bi-metal process, layering steel and copper to create a steel case which is then berdan primed to ensure ignition while also extending the ammunition’s shelf life. Completed rounds are coated with a special polymer for reliable feeding and ejecting. Thanks to this manufacturing process, ammunition is economically priced, so you can shoot longer for less.

These rounds are for your .223 Remington-chambered rifle. At 55 grain they’re pretty lightweight, so they’re going to move down-range at impressive speeds. That doesn’t mean they’re not still plenty powerful, either; these rounds pack a mighty punch. These are Hollow Point (HP) rounds, so they begin to expand immediately upon impact. As they expand the simultaneously begin to decelerate, creating a devastating wound track while preventing over-penetration. Each of these rounds has a stunning muzzle velocity of 3193 feet per second. This ammunition is good for hunting medium-sized game and spending time at target practice, working on tactical training, and going plinking.

You get 500 rounds in this box of ammunition from Silver Bear. That’s enough ammunition to keep your gun happy for awhile – and we’re pretty sure you’re going to be happy, too. With 500 rounds you can do any number of drills, focusing on speed, accuracy, grouping, any number of things. This ammunition is made by Silver Bear, which is part of the Barnaul Plant. Barnaul has been in business since 1869, and with almost 150 years of experience behind them you can be sure they know what they’re doing. Production takes place at their plant in Barnaul, Russia. Don’t let cost stop you from being the high-volume shooter you’ve always wanted to be. Order now, and feed your gun.

(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)

A: Hello Mike, These 55gr. HP rounds by Silver Bear in .223 are non-corrosive. You can shoot them in your firearm without having to worry about corrosive primers.

A: Hello, Yes, you can shoot .223 ammo in a firearm chambered in 5.56. .223 has a lower chamber pressure than 5.56 so it is safe to shoot. You just can't shoot 5.56 in a firearm that's only chambered in .223.
