    I have never bought each of these ammo before. Besides the the already noted obvious FMJ/HP ect, I would love to hear the differences and feed back on it.

    Thx,

    Well, I've run a case of the Golden Tiger through my WASR and 3 Yugo SKSs with no issues.

    I've been happy with all the Brown Bear I've shot, provided I got it for a decent price. That's in all the calibers I've tried it.

    I have 5K rounds of Golden Tiger, so it better be good. :eek:

    I've run Brown and Silver bear through my AK, I like it better than Wolf. I use Brown Bear hollow points in my Makarov when I carry it.

    Buy whatever's cheapest. Those brands are all in the same quality category, minute of man.

    Golden Tiger shed some debris from pierced primers in both of my SKSs, damaging one bolt enough to require replacement. GT works fine in my AK, but I won't be buying any more.

    I had one bad round of Tiger, other than that it was ok.

    Thanks far all responses so far. Are they as dirty as Wolf? Same coating?

    The Wolf polymer coated stuff has worked just fine for me. The HP was pretty accurate.

    I have shot a few boxes of Golden Tiger and a couple hundred Silver Bear. Both worked reliably.

    I have two Norinco SKS's. One loves Silver Bear but Golden Tiger doesn't perform nearly as well. The other doesn't shoot Wolf hardly at all and loves Golden Tiger. I believe it's a mistake to think all this ammo is the same.

    I stick to what I know works best in my rifles.

    I suppose that if one is only looking to make a big noise and put a hole vaguely downrange, then any ammo will do the trick.

    Ive shot Wolf and Brown Bear thru my AK - no issues.

    Ive shot Wolf and Brown Bear thru my AR - in my opinion Brown Bear was more accurate. I had a few instances of stuck cases that need a tap with a cleaning rod....but thats more of an issue with a tight chamber and steel case....not a "problem" with the ammo.

    I just ordered my second case of Golden Tiger for my WASR... works fine and just as well as the Wolf SP I've fed it.

    I've used the Wolf, Brown Bear and Silver Bear in my WASR and my Norinco AK-47. They all worked well but the Wolf was THE dirtiest of them all. I personally like the Silver Bear the best.

    The Bear ammos are Barnaul ammo repackaged. Best stuff available imo.
