    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've used Brown Bear and my M9 hates it. It jams up in 1 mag or less.

    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.
