    Silver Bear .223 62 grain Softpoint expansion

    Has anyone tried the Silver Bear .223 62 grain ammunition? If so, do you know if the Bullet expands reliably on game?

    I've had good luck with the 7.62x39mm Softpoints expanding in the Silver Bear line. Was thinking of picking up some .223 softpoints.

    I have been using Black Hills ammo for years. Several years ago I bought 2000 rounds of their 223/5.56 55 gr. soft point. This is the only ammo I have ever used in my Ruger Mini 14. It does a excellent job on coyotes and expands like it should. It is once fired military brass and they sell it as remanufactured. The bad part about this is the ammo is around $26 for a box of 50. I guess my short answer should have been...No, I don't know anything about Silver Bear ammo...

    Sounds Good to me! I'm thinking of using it on Coyotes in my AR15A2.
