Ok, so whats the difference between the two? I'm doing some price checks on ammo, and see I can get a 700 round tin for $129.97(Brown Bear) and 500 rounds of Silver Bear for $89.97.

The Brown Bear ammo that I've bought was a laquered steel case and the Silver Bear was zinc plated.. I've also had Golden Bear ammo, which is brass plated.

I have a couple boxes of Silver Bear that's nickle plated.. Don't have any idea why some Silver Bear would zinc and other would be nickle.. :confused:

I've found it shoots better in my Yugo SKS than Wolf. It cuts my groups in half, for the most part, but each gun will be different..

You have to poke around a little:

Silver Bear Pistol Ammunition
"This high quality ammo features distinctive nickel plating on the
cartridge case; hence the “Silverâ€￾ Bear name."

Brown Bear Pistol Ammunition
"This high quality ammo features lacquered steel case construction; hence the
“Brownâ€￾ Bear name."

Golden Bear Pistol Ammunition
"Distinctly different than anything else on the market, Golden Bear's name describes it's color but not its' unique construction; in which a brass coating encases the steel case."

Yeah, but my nickle plated stuff is 7.62x39 rifle ammo.. And I have other 7.62x39 zinc plated ammo, also.. That's the part I'm wondering about.

Same caliber ammo, same name, different plating..

cleaning your gun should be as natural as taking a shower if you want it to go bang everytime and not jam on you.

NEED 223 AMMO BAD ANY IDEAS.
AIM .223 .223


AIM has Wolf, Brown and Silver Bear .223 ammo on hand right now..You'll need to be patient because they're 3 weeks behind on shipping, which they'll inform you when you place the order.

They've also got AK/SKS ammo, but it's brass and a bit more pricey than Wolf/Bear ammo.

cant clean our guns?

bullcrap, everyone i have every met has problems with that laquer coated crap. I get jams every time i shoot, it is very sporadic and you never know when, but it happens. Usually at the worst time... Like when I need to shoot again at that deer. Or Im at the range being embarrassed because I cant clear my round.
Just love it when they treat you like a 4 year old and think you have a live round in there too.... but rubber mallet or piece of wood and a firm wack always fixes it. I have heard that people remove the laquer from those coated shells before they shoot sometimes... Just a thought, you might want to try that.
Dont insult everyones intelligence by saying we cant clean our guns.

You've just met a whole forum of people that feed Russian ammo constantly and never have probs. Maybe next time you can consider your 1 post as the wrong time to try and start an argument.

It has been proven by the BOX O Truth that the lacquer does not melt under the heat of a blowtorch, your gun doesn't get that hot. Don't buy it and leave more for the rest of us. If your having jam problems its a prob with your gun, especially if your having jams in an AK platform.

Silver and Brown Bear

+1 to what Enscribe said. I have shot thousands of rounds of both in 223 and 7.62x39. Zero problems. Some with Wolf 223, but that was accuracy issues and failures to feed in an M4gery because of light loads. SIlver and Brown Bear tend to be more accurate than Wolf in my experience.

I've never had a problem with lacquer coated casings either. In fact, my Golden Tiger shoots better than my Silver Bear and Wolf.
