Silver Bear ammunition is manufactured by Barnaul Cartridge Plant in Russia, which dates back to Emperor Alexander II. One of the first cartridge plants was founded in St. Petersburg in the 19th century. This plant provided the Russian Army with its products during WWI and worked until it was evacuated during the Civil War in St. Petersburg.

During the Great Patriotic War, the plant produced 7.62mm, 12.7mm, and 14.5mm with armor-piercing bullets. After receiving the Soviet Union’s highest decoration for outstanding services rendered to the State, the Order of Lenin, Barnaul began producing a wide variety of hunting and sporting cartridges – and they continue to specialize in sport, hunting and military ammo to this day.

Their BEAR series (Brown Bear, Silver Bear, and Golden Bear) is a line of hunting ammunition, each with its own specialized characteristics. While each brand uses lead-cored FMJ, soft point, or hollow point bullets, has steel cases with Berdan primers, and uses non-corrosive propellant – they each differ in the protective coating used on the cartridge case. Silver Bear cartridges have a zinc coating on the steel case.

    "I've never been satisfied with the accuracy of my SKS. I know it's limitations, yet I thought we could do better. We just did. The Silver Bear ammo consistently grouped tighter and closer to my point of aim than the Tula or Wolf ammo. It's not as easy to find as the other Russian ammo, and usually costs a buck or two more per box. Take the time and spend the extra money. IMHO, the only step up is the expensive "match rounds" (i.e. Winchester). That'll get you a marginal increase in accuracy for double the cost. The Bear line, made in the Barnaul plant, is simply the best choice."
