    What are the differences between the Brown,Black, and Golden Bear ammo?

    Is this ammo decent for plinking?

    Black Bear? I know of Brown, Silver, and Golden Bear...

    All three are decent for plinking. The Golden Bear is usually priced a little higher and isn't the best choice if you just want cheap ammo. The other two are fine for plinking, a little dirty, and not very consistent but priced right.

    With regard to Silver Bear:
    Silver Bear shoots dirtier than Wolf in my AR. Plus, the Silver Bear leaves a blue-ish salt deposited on the bolt and around the muzzle. Don't know what it is or if it's harmful or not, but I don't like it.

    Brown Bear = Lacquered steel case (looks brown)
    Silver Bear = Nickel plated steel case (looks silver)
    Golden Bear = Brass plated steel case (looks gold)

    Last year I bought 1000 rounds of Brown Bear and my pistols ate it up without a problem. Then I bought another 1000 rounds and had one or more failures to feed in almost every magazine. Haven't purchased any since.
