Other than the different case coatings. Do they all share the same primers, bullets and powder?

I can tell you that Barnaul Machine and Tool in Russia is the manufacturer.
I suspect the difference is the case, and thus cost, but that is only a guess. It would seem practical to have the same powder, primer and projectile at the same facility, but again, a guess.

The annual AK magazine from Peterson Publishing ran an article on Brown Bear 125 SP, declaring it a good SD round, a very positive article.

I don't know the differences between the Bear ammo other than Golden Bear has a brass case. I did buy a couple boxes of Brown Bear 62gr HP 223,and it shoots alot better than Wolf 62gr HP 223 that I have several cases of.
