The Russian Barnaul Ammunition Plant has been big in the Russian ammunition production market since the 19th century until they were relocated in 1941. Today, Barnaul is still one of the leading manufacturers of Com-Bloc calibers and they're still going strong. They currently produce the Barnaul Gold and Barnaul Silver Series, Military spec cartridges, Centaur rounds which are loaded with high end Hornady Manufacturing bullets, non-lethal ammo, Monarch ammo which is a brand that is made specifically for Academy sports, and of course, the Bear line of ammunition. Their Bear line of ammo has multiple calibers in circulation and they offer three types of cartridges with different cases. Silver Bear cases are Zinc-coated, Golden Bear cases are brass coated for further protection, and the Brown Bear cases have a brown lacquer coating on their steel cases for increased lubricity and reliability.

These Brown Bear cartridges are loaded with the popular .223 Remington caliber bullets that are 62 grain, lead core, copper plated, soft points. And they come with brown lacquer coated, heavy duty, non-reloadable, non-corrosive, Berdan primed steel cases. Their muzzle energy is a hard hitting 1276-foot pounds, with a muzzle velocity that exceeds 3000 feet per second. This ammo is the ideal choice for that .223 AR you have in your safe. With an affordable bulk case of 500 rounds, and 25 boxes that each have 20 rounds in them, you can be sure you'll have enough ammo for those family trips to the range. Get yourself a few cases today, before they’re all sold out.

A: No, these Brown Bear cases are not reloadable. You spelled Berdan correctly, and that is the type of primer used in these cases - non-corrosive Berdan primers.

A: This ammo does have a lacquer coating, but there is not any truth to the myth that it can "gum up" a chamber. Steel cases do not expand like brass cases, and there will be additional fouling in the chamber because these cases do not seal against the chamber walls like brass does. This is mistaken for the lacquer coating causing issues.

A: No, that does not have an effect on storage life. It is recommended to keep ammunition away from heat sources and moisture. A dry place with constantly cool temperatures is ideal.

A: This Brown bear to 23 Remington ammo uses a bimetal jacketed projectile, which uses steel and copper in the jacket. It will attract a magnet. However, it should not be considered armor piercing ammunition.

A: This ammo is loaded with a bimetal jacketed lead core bullet, which will attract a magnet.

A: Steel cased ammunition is safe and can be reliable in any properly manufactured and maintained weapon. It is recommended to clean the chamber in between shooting brass cased and steel cased ammunition, because of the different ways that each type behaves as it is fired.
