Russia's Barnaul Cartridge Plant produces the BEAR series (Brown Bear, Silver Bear, and Golden Bear) – a line of hunting ammunition, each with its own specialized characteristics. Each brand uses lead-cored FMJ, soft point, or hollow point bullets, has steel cases with Berdan primers, and uses non-corrosive propellant. However, they each differ in the protective coating used on the cartridge case. Golden Bear cartridges feature a brass coating on the steel case.

Before producing one of today's popular lines of ammo, Barnaul Cartridge Plant had a rich history dating back to Emporer Alexander II in Russia. After opening one of the first cartridge plants in St. Petersburg, Barnaul produced cartridges for the Russian Army during WWI and was later evacuated during the Civil War.

During the Great Patriotic War, the plant produced 7.62mm, 12.7mm, and 14.5mm with armor-piercing bullets. They went on to receive the Soviet Union’s highest decoration for outstanding services rendered to the State, the Order of Lenin. Barnaul later began producing a wide variety of hunting and sporting cartridges – which they continue to be known for to this day.
