What is the general concensus from the all mighty Hive on purchasing the Brown Bear Ammo.
Especially for a Mosin-Nagant?

I think it will work just fine and is reasonably priced. Brown Bear at AIM

It doesn't seem to be the most accurate ammo around.

I use the 223 in my AK and really like it.

Is that the stuff that has mercury in the primers?

Basically just like Wolf;Russian ammo made at one of their military factories (I want to say Ulyanovsk perhaps?)
It's better quality than a lot of the old surplus lying around out there. There's nothing more fun than sorting through old Albanian surplus 7.62x54 trying to find rounds that headspace properly in your BIL's M44 carbine. That's one thing you don't have to do with the new manufacture ammo.

I've had problems in the past with Wolf short cycling in my AR's, but with the Brown Bear I have never had that paroblem and it seems to be hotter than Wolf. I'm down to my last 2K of the stuff now and wish I would have boght more.
