In 1869 Alexander I, the Emperor of Russia, ordered the building of an ammunition factory in St. Petersburg, and the Barnaul Machine Plant JSC was founded. The plant remained in St. Petersburg for years before moving to the Moscow area, where they stayed until World War II. During World War II the threat of an attack by the Germans forced Barnaul to move once again, this time to Barnaul itself. They supplied the Russian Army with 50% of their ammunition and today they’re one of the leading producers in Russia. Brown Bear is a subsidiary of Barnaul and is known for producing quality ammunition at economical prices.
At 145 grain these are pretty lightweight rounds for the cartridge size. Their lighter weight not only allows them to reach higher speeds but also lessens felt recoil, making them a good option for first-time .308 users. These are FMJ rounds, so they don’t expand on impact but simply punch through targets and keep on going. Each round moves with exceptional speed at a muzzle velocity of 2756 feet per second and hammers into targets with a muzzle energy of 2444 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Brown Bear manufactures these rounds in steel cases with berdan primer to ensure ignition and extend their shelf-life.
There are 20 target rounds in this box of ammunition. Brown Bear produces them at the Barnaul plant in Barnaul, Russia, and loads them to CIP specifications. .308 Win-chambered rifles produce serious power and operate at the upper edge of felt recoil; most shooters begin to develop a flinch with a felt recoil above 20 foot-pounds and a .308 loaded with 165 grain rounds is right at 20.1 foot-pounds of felt recoil. Many .308 rounds are 180 grain or more, which means more felt recoil. That’s why these 145 grain rounds are a great choice for new shooters or honing marksmanship; they lessen recoil. Feed your .308 for less with these Brown Bear steel-cased rounds.
(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)
