Brown Bear

Post by perfesser33 » January 21st, 2013, 6:13 pm

Brown Bear 94 gr FMJ does not like my P64 (or maybe it's the other way around). Suggestions (other than don't use it :) ) are welcome.

Welcome to the forum.

What seems to be the problem, failure to feed, failure to fire, failure to eject?

Do other brands work OK?

My P64 doesn't like Brown Bear either. I tend to get LTS (Limp Trigger Syndrome) with it. What I found is that Brown Bear cases tend to be a few hundredths of a millimeter over length which engages the Out of Battery lockout. Every other brand of ammo I've shot in it works fine from Wolf range fodder up through Master Cartridge JHP.

Here's the thread of me tracking and addressing the issue:

Yes. I have not tried other ammo but have ordered it.
