Am considering the Silver Bear .223 62 grain Soft Point Loadings, due largely to the current .223 Ammo drought. Anyone have experience with it? Will that Soft Ponted Bullet really expand?

Same here for the Ruger Mini-14.
Can say only this about expansion and it has nothing to do with the .223.

Use the Silver Bear 9mm.JHPs for practice and they do expand. Not as profoundly as American made JHPs, but they do expand almost as much.

Depends on what your using it for, hornady recomends a soft point bullet for varmints. As for the .223 russian silver bear I have never had any experience with them. The wolf laquered however was a pain to clean so I stopped using them in anything but an AK.
