Still, although I've had some who recommend the heavier weights, I've heard most say to stay away and use the intended weights of 90-95 grains.

As far as the Silver/Brown Bear ammo goes, I will never buy any of it again. I pickup up 3 boxes of Silver Bear 115gr. HP & 2 boxes of Brown Bear FMJ when I got my latest Circle 10 Bulgie Mak. Total crap, each and every round.
I gave away the Brown Bear I had left - the guy's Mak liked it, so why not?
I shot up the Silver at the range, just to get rid of it.
Nothing but stovepipe after stovepipe with both types. And this is with a tuned, brand new Mak! [Mine was totally unissued, new in the box - I got lucky at the gun shop]
Interestingly, my Mak hates any and all steel cased ammo - the Bears, Barnaul, Wolf, you name it. Now, if it has a brass case, it'll eat it all, with no problems. This seems very odd for a military pistol that was designed for steel case ammo! I have decided on only MFS (when I can find it), PS Grand ammo for the range (the Federal stuff is too pricey), and Georgia Arms Gold Dots for when it's carried. For now, I have a good supplier of PS Grand, but I expect it to evaporate one day soon, just like the MFS did.
When that happens, I'll probably switch to GA ammo completely in the Mak.

Wow my Mak ate the silver bear nicely
I have run a couple boxes each of silver bear 92 grain fmj and 115 jhp, plus a few 120jhp, and it all fired and fed perfect.
the only hiccups I have had were with the Wolf 109 grain fmj, that oddball bullet shape doesnt always guide the ctg. into the chamber is what I think.
