This round is manufactured at the Barnaul Cartridge Plant in Russia. As such it has a Berdan primed steel casing, as Russian ammo so often does. This makes the round very cost-effective, as steel is substantially less expensive than brass, but at the trade-off of not being reloadable. The casing’s zinc plating helps it to feed and eject reliably in semi-automatic weapons. (Indeed, that’s where the “Silver” in Silver Bear comes from!)
