Actually Velocity Brown Bear 7.62x39
Has anyone ever chronograph Brown Bear from a Saiga 21? I am interested in the true velocity? I dont think I am getting the listed velocity. My drop at 200 yards is much larger then expected for 2300 FPS
Well I went out and answered my own question and boy am I impressed with BROWN BEAR. I fired 20 shots through the chronograph. The first 5 did not record properly due to the muzzle blast at 3 feet so I moved the chronograph out to 6 feet past the muzzle and here are the results. Pretty impressive for Russian Ammo at less then $4.00 a box
Temp 68 Deg
Second five rounds
What bbl length and what bullet type?
16 inch BBL 123 JHP
I like brown bear alot, seems to be good ammo. Shoot it in my ak's and ar's. Good numbers, thanks for the info.
Brown Bear is good ammo for sure.
Here's what I have for Brown Bear 125gr soft point out of my Ruger Mini-30. This stuff seems to run about 100fps faster out of the Ruger over what I get with my Yugo M64.
125gr Brown Bear Soft Point––very consistent velocities
Great information. How is the SP accuracy?
I have used Silver Bear, but may have to get a case of BB.
