Shooting at high volumes is the dream of pretty much every gun owner, not only because it’s fun but because the only way to truly improve your marksmanship skills is through extensive practice. The problem is, shooting at higher volumes gets expensive. That’s where Silver Bear comes in. Silver Bear manufactures ammunition using a unique bimetal layering process, alternating thin layers of steel and copper to create steel cases which they berdan prime for reliable ignition and a longer shelf-life. Finished rounds are coated with a special polymer for consistent feeding and ejecting. With this process, money is saved, and Silver Bear is able to offer this ammunition at economical prices.
These are .380 ACP rounds. At 94 grain they’re fairly lightweight although they’re right outside the standard weight range for the cartridge size, which ends at 90 grain. Being lightweight means these rounds fly down-range at higher speeds and also means you keep the manageable recoil of your pistol. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds, meaning they won’t expand on impact. Target rounds like these are prone to over-penetration, so it’s important to have a solid backstop in place during target practice. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second. This ammunition is designed for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition from Silver Bear you get 1000 target rounds, and that means your .380 ACP is going to be truly well-fed. There are quite a few drills and exercises you can do with this much ammunition, and one thing you can do is learn what your gun is capable of. Find out how your gun performs at different distances and discover how drift and drop works as well. The .380 ACP works best at close range and it’s a good idea to become familiar with it. Silver Bear is a subsidiary of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant, so ammunition is produced at the Barnaul plant in Barnaul, Russia. To improve your marksmanship and keep your gun warm, order now.

High failure rateon 2/22/2016
My husband purchased 1000 rounds for target shooting for my Smith and Wesson M&P .380. I experienced a very high failure rate with 1-2 misfires for every 7 shots fired. I am really glad these aren't my defense rounds. Yes, they were somewhat cheaper but I'd rather pay more and avoid the misfires.

High Failure To Fire Rateon 8/9/2014
With my S&W Bodyguard I experienced a 95% failure to fire rate with about a 33% failure to eject rate. Thank God my Smith has second and, at times, third strike capability. On the upside this ammo is very accurate so, for practice ammo, if you can handle double and triple strikes, at times stopping to hand eject a spent case, this ammo will do. For a few bucks more a box, you're probably better off with something else.
