The Barnaul Machine Plant JSC is one of the leading producers of industrial goods and ammunition in Russia. The plant's history goes far in the past to the period of Alexander I. The Emperor ordered the opening of the first cartridge plants in St. Petersburg in 1869. During World War I the plant supplied the Russian Army and operated out of St. Petersburg, During World War II, the plant was relocated to Barnaul, where production of various types of cartridges began.

Silver Bear loads feature a distinctive polished zinc plating on the steel cases which ensure exceptional reliability, functionality and feeding a variety of firearms. The projectiles are made from lead however may contain a bi-metal jacket which will attract a magnet. The cases are Berdan primed which makes them not-reloadable, however the ammunition will have a much longer shelf life when compared to other factory loads. Silver Bear is loaded to exacting standards to ensure you receive a quality product. It's clear to see why more people are turning to Silver Bear to meet their everyday ammo needs.

"This is good cheap target ammo that has not had an FTF, FTE or FTL in my Glock, 2 Taurus, my Ruger, my Beretta, my S&W, 2 Girsans - you get the picture."

"These rounds worked excellent in my new Remington 1911, no hangs, no misfires. took out a beaver on the tenth shot that had been giving my tree farm a lot of damage. Just wish the cases were reloadable."

"Every 2 rounds I would have a Fail to Fire. Firing pin would hit dead center and not fire. Will not buy again, very unsatisfied"

"This ammo is just what I got it for; cheap ammo! Out of 40 rounds I fired from a box I had 3 misfires (FTF). Ran all 3 back through by themselves and got 2 out of 3 too fire. Final score: 39 fires with one total FTF. (tried it 3 times; no go). In summary: this ammo is great for shooting at the house or on the range where you have the luxury of time. I would not recommend carrying this in your protective carry weapon; too unreliable. BTW: shot this ammo out of a new SR 45. Seems like this ammo has a lot of mixed reviews, and yes, it is very dirty! You ask why I shot 39 and not the 50 out of the box; it started raining!"

"Failure to feed. Failure to fire. My Kimber Pro Carry II would not close completely up when feeding this junk. Would have to give it an extra bump on back of the slide. This is a gun with only about 150 rds through it so I know the spring isn't worn out. Had 2 FTF. Ran both bullets back through and still would not fire. Guess you get what you pay for."

"Shot 50 rounds through my new Ruger SR1911. All functioned perfectly. Very dirty ammunition but everyone should clean their guns anyway. Highly recommend."

"What I liked: Fired well. Decent accuracy. Good price. Ran through a 50 round box with no FTF, FTL, or FTF in my Ruger P345. What I did not like: Burns very dirty. I've never fired ammunition that leaves as much burned powder residue as this ammo does. The whole muzzle area of my pistol was covered in heavy powder residue. I probably would not purchase this ammo again."

"very disappointing, got about 6 rounds fired out of my xp storm before jamming the first time, cleared it, got three rounds fired jams again.. never buying again , gun has never jammed until i purchased this ammo. probably a direct correlation to the Russian ammo and the number of spacecraft the Russians have lost in the last five years...poor quality"
