Makarov ammunition question

Is there any brand of ammo your Mak just does not like (won't feed or isn't accurate)?

Hello. In this range report on the EG Mak, I found one type that mine at least doesn't like.

None that it refuses. It does seem to look down on Wolf.

The only Mak ammo that I've tried and had trouble with is the Brown Bear HP. They routinely hang on the feed ramp.

Mine occasionally double feeds with the Silver Bear zinc coated steel casings, but never with a brass ammo.
The brass has "memory" and expands with the ignition, but rapidly returns to normal dimensions (unlike the "zinc"), so extraction can occur quickly enough to avoid a jam with the next stripped cartridge.
