    I have gone through three 1000 round lots of Brown Bear. Never had a problem with the first two lots, but the third was a nightmare. It must have been slightly oversize as several times for each magazine, the slide had to be pushed into battery. Some rounds never did go into battery. That third lot kind of soured me on Brown Bear, but I have not ruled it out completely. It was as accurate as any other commercial ammo and performed well.

    As Brown Bear is steel cased and lacquer coated, it it important to clean the chamber after every shooting session.

    I've never had an issue with Brown Bear short of the fact that my P-64 will only reliably feel FMJ. That wasn't the ammo's fault though. Brown Bear is all I feed it. 1000ish rounds fired without a hitch:evil:
