Wolf will be dirty, I use it without problems in pistol cal. I think the one you are talking about uses brass cases. I'd use it, some here wouldn't.....Sportsman's Guiide can have good deals and 3 payment plan over $100.00.......

I know Silver Bear is Russian, but I thought it was a lot better than Wolf? Silver Bear uses zinc-plated steel cases which seem to work fine for Glocks and others. Just curious if Styer has any problems with it..

Silver Bear/Barnual/Wolf are made in the same plant. I heard negative t hings about Silver Bear pistol ammo. I like the Silver Bear M1 "effect" ammo in 7.62x39. I cannot recall which forum I was reading about the Silver Bear pistol ammo, but I know that people weren't happy with it's peformance.

Silverbear was once a nickname of mine, so I had to pick it up. I got 500 rounds headed my way, along with some low recoil buck and slugs.

Won't be able to test it for a while, though, the slide of my MA1 is headed to Vegas for night sights.

I am not sure how to tell if ammo has a coating but since it looks a lot like wolf ammo I'm guessing it does. From what I understand the silverbear is a higher qualtiy that the brown but if Brown is that bad I wont pay more for the Silver when WWB and Blazer is available for about the same.

Well, I went ahead and bought 1000 rounds of Silver Bear. I put about 100 rounds through both my M40 and Glock 22 today with no problems. Accuracy was fine, and it didn't seem any more dirty than WWB.

It should work fine. I think its cleaner then UMC and possibly WWB.......
