I'm seeing this advertised for 500 rounds @ $109.00. Is Brown Bear ammo any good?

Last I bought was some Lake City M855 62 grain $230/1000 in stripper clips. Don't know anything about Brown Bear

Brown bear is lacquer coated steel cased ammo generally used by Russians. Good plinking ammo, but pretty dirty. Golden Bear is a step up.. if you just plan to run the brown bear like crazy it's good stuff to play around with. I generally buy 5.56 by the thousand, better pricing that way.

Thanks for the info. I don't want to crud up my rifle, which is why I asked. It was a great price, but since I never heard of it I wanted to make sure it was worth it. :thumbsup:
