About This Silver Bear 223 Remington Ammunition

Hey, as much as we’d love for you to unload the entirety of your bank account on ammo, we appreciate that you might need to buy other things like food and clothing and The Flintstones memorabilia. That’s why we offer this super affordable yet reliable 223 Rem ammo by Silver Bear.

This cartridge attains its alluring price tag by taking full advantage of economical steel. That starts with the shell casing. An all steel case is unsuitable for reloading and furthermore permits more carbon fouling of the action. Still, the noticeable savings it represents makes it incredibly popular for casual target shooting. This round’s manufacturer takes its name from the silvery sheen of their steel casing, which is plated with low friction zinc to help a semi-auto rifle extract more reliably.

Steel is also in this round’s 55 grain FMJ bullet. Some ranges do ban magnetic projectiles, as they’re more likely to ricochet and create sparks, but by replacing a lot of this bullet’s jacket with steel Silver Bear has lowered its price tag even more considerably. This bullet’s jacket is still copper on the outside to promote a cleaner barrel.

Silver Bear also utilizes more economical Berdan primers. They perform indistinguishably from the Boxer primer that is more common in America, and they are furthermore non-corrosive to prevent disastrous rusting.

    Ammo is good. It cycles, it's reliable, it's not as punishing on the extractor as steel, and it even tumbles.
