    I have used just about everything in my M&P and it just eats whatever I feed it. On Wolf I just won't use it because it just dirty ammo and is more diificult to clean out of my guns.

    I have a "friend" with a Hi Point, and he told me that he shoots both wolf and brown bear through it. (When it doesn't have a FTF, FTE, FTL. @1 in 20) He is ok with his setup, said he spent 250.00 for the gun and 200 rounds. I just say you got what you paid for.

    Seems like one of the online ammo sellers had this note.
    "We no longer sell Brown Bear due to problems."
    Don't know if it was delivery problems or quality problems.

    I run the brown bear when ever I find it. Never had a problem other not being able to find enough. That stuff is priced right. At the gun show the guy has it for $10 a box out the door.

    Keep in mind that some ranges prohibit steel cased ammo. (Wades, I'm lookin' at you. )

    Ayup.

    The Brown Bear stuff I've shot is *extremely* dirty. I stay the heck away from it.
