    Brown Bear .308 7.62x51

    Anyone had experience with this ammo in a cetme? Steel case laquer , box shows marked both .308 and 7.62x51, 147 gr. Price sure is tempting, but I have been led astray by tempting prices before!

    Go with Wal-mart ammo. The Russian stuff jammed in both my Cetme and PTR. Plus the steel case can do some damage over time.

    the laquer coating is known to gum up the flutes, so if you do use it be sure to clean the flutes thoroughly after each range session.

    I have never had any problem with this stuff.
    I always fired it when I could not find Milsurp.
    However, it is dirty, so give your rifle a through cleaning when done.

    Are you talking about the (blue) boxes of Federal? I shot about 5 rounds of it through my cetme on Saturday and it worked just fine. Then again, my sample size was rather small...

    Just 5 rounds? Try cranking a few more through, and get yourself a broken case head extractor tool while you are at it. The CETME will rip that brass in half.

    i havent used any steel cased ammo yet,but was told it was stronger.at the time my problem was i was ripping the brass casings in half.i have only had my cetme a few months and used only remington until the last time i went out i had some surplus.
    when i bought the rifle i found it had a case in it.first time out 20 rounds fine,second time out 7 rounds and ripped a case,third time was less then 10 rounds and ripped a case then finished 40 rounds with no problem.i spent time cleaning the chamber and the bolt head making sure there were no small slivers or shavings or any dirt or power left in the chamber area and flutes.it has not ripped a case since that then.
    I AGREE ON THE BROKEN SHELL EXTRACTER.nothing ends a day quicker than a broken casing.
    as for brown bear ammo,i have been told that brown bear and wolf are the same.wolf is all i shoot in my ak and i have never had any problem but the ammo is dirty,cleaning takes some time.
