This is an excellent package of bulk 7.62x54r ammo that are sure to keep you plinking for hours. These rounds are Silver Bear ammunition manufactured by Bear Ammunition, a subsidiary of the Barnual Machine Tool Plant, an industrial and ammunition corporation located in Russia. Silver Bear ammunition is a distinctive division of the Bear Ammunition company as all of its ammo features a zinc plating on the steel casings.
You will receive 25 boxes of 20 rounds of 7.62x54r per box, for a total of 500 rounds. Each round is a 147gr, zinc plated steel, with a full metal jacket (FMJ) bullet that's oaded with a Berdan primer. 147 grain is in the lightweight range for 7.62x54r, so as a result your shoulder will receive much less of a kick when the rifle is fired. Each round will deliver a muzzle velocity of 2,785 feet per second. Since each round is also full metal jacketed, meaning that the lead bullet is encased in a harder metal, there is greater muzzle velocity from this round than other ammunition of the same caliber.
These rounds are Berdan primed, which are the standard primers for Eastern European markets. Berdan primers are generally more reliable than boxer primers and are more resistant to corrosion over time, giving them a longer shelf life. But the real standout for these rounds is the fact that they are zinc plated, steel ammo. Zinc plated ammo is often reserved for law enforcement and special purposes only.
You know that you're buying from a company who specializes in making ammo for Russian military arms when you are buying from Bear Ammunition. Something to keep in mind before making your final purchase, however, is that these are 7.62x54r rounds, originally chambered for the Mosin Nagant bolt action rifles. These rounds are not to be confused with 7.62x39mm, which are chambered for AK, SKS and Mini-30 rifles.
