Out of Stock
Grab a 500 round case of Brown Bear ammunition for an inexpensive session of fun shooting at the range. These .223 Remington cartridges fire a bimetal jacketed 55 grain bullet and use non-corrosive Berdan primers and non-reloadable lacquered steel cases.

This ammo is manufactured in Russia at the Barnaul Machine Plant, which supplied Soviet forces with about half of their munitions during World War II. Today, the plant is privatized and provides inexpensive ammunition to American shooters under the Brown, Silver, and Gold Bear brands.

    Rounds go bang and are great for plinking. Only problem so far is that my local range won't let me shoot since the bi-metal round sticks to a magnet. I have other shooting options, but just some extra hassle.

    I shot acceptable groups out of 11.5" SBR out to 200 meters. No malfunctions. Slightly better than anticipated performance from a value round.

    It only took 3 days for the rounds to get to my house, which I'm satisfied with. But when I went to the range I had to many hang fires(at least one for every magazine I loaded). I was not pleased with the round and will not order it again. I will order from ammoman again, since there service is great.

  • It is good ammo for the price. The steel cases flowed thru the gun. It is great for target practice

    My Ruger Mini 14 (new version) loves this stuff. I target practice mainly so inexpensive ammo trips my trigger. I have loads of trigger time with Tula Ammo. I prefer the lacquer coated Brown Bear. Less likely to rust if they get wet. Nothing wrong with a little added protection. Overall happy I hope that was helpful

  • Lacquer sealing "helping" prevent a stuck case?

    How quickly did your order arrive?
    My history with lacquer sealed primers is that over time your chamber will develop a fairly easy to remove buildup of the lacquer that would if anything help cause stuck cases or more than likely have you using your forward assist quite a bit til you cleaned out the crud. Wolf Ammo didn't become as good as it currently is until they did away with lacquer sealed primers and went to polycoating. Not only was the primer better sealed but any abrasiveness of the steel cases was elimininated (though I never experienced any). I only buy lacquer sealed ammo if I am so broke that I cannot afford anything else and the suppliers of ammo like Bear is out of ammo like Wolf.

  • Best price=quility .223 I have found

    How likely are you to recommend this product to a friend?

    I read from time to time reviews saying there are zero in issues at 100 yards. Well I have fired to date well over 25,000 rounds of steel ammo, several makers tulammo, silver bear, etc... I shoot a bolt action and this ammo will give you a one inch group @100yds. In the AR-15 it feeds very good, every issue was always a magazine issue not the ammo. As to the zero in well AR-15's with this ammo 5 to 6 inch group, but consider price=performance, kinda hard pass up. I know this, it is as good as any other .223 steel case on the market, and the lacquered case is better for the gun,for I have had other steel that was not lacquered stick in my bolt action, and had to be removed by a cleaning rod, never had one of these stick. Lastly, if you want a AR-15 style firearm to give you 1 inch groups @ 100 yards with any steel ammo, well that going to require big buck on equipment, AR-15's are a great high capacity firearm, fun to shoot, and excellent for self defense @1-40 yards, and maybe 100+ if shooting stationary, but they really have evolved into a close range self defence rifle. Over this ammo works as good as any others on the market. Happy shooting.

  • Went bang every time. Not sure where it ended up...

    No problem with the ammoman here. The price and time of shipping were great as usual.

    I can't group this ammo. My grouping at 100 yards looks like i shot my 9mm handgun at 25 yards with groups of 5+".

    Two brands, including one from wally world, had groups less than 1.5" at 100 yards.

    I was hoping to find something cheap and accurate for fun on the range. I only got the cheap part right.
