I read a couple of other posts mentioning Bear Ammunition. My dad as a 30-06 bolt action that I will be inheriting from him next week and after some shopping it seems most of the big-name brand ammo is at least $1.00 per round. I found some Golden Bear 30-06 for about 50 cents per round, which is easier to afford for plinking.
I understand the Golden Bear ammo is copper plated steel casings. Most of the prior posts I found here were talking about using Bear ammo in eastern-bloc semi-auto rifles.
Has anyone had any experience with firing Golden or Silver Bear ammo out of a bolt action? I'm assuming it should be ok but thought I'd ask since I don't have the rifle yet and can't try it out.
Does anyone know if it is any more corrosive than some of the more well known ammo brands?
