    About $295 per 1K. Like it better than the laquer coated russian ammo cases.
    62gr, hpbt.

    Shocked the hell out of that those price gouging assholes had it this cheap. Picked up 1500 rounds today at their catalog store- same price as online.

    How does that ammo do through an AR?

    I've heard of people having issues with it.

    I found that the zinc plating has more friction than brass, so it occasionally mis-fed in my AR. The lacquer- and polymer-coated fed better for me, but I haven't run any significant quantities through my AR.

    Too bad the lacquer burns off and cakes the chamber and does the same thing after a while.

    It's a weird setup. The online store and catalog counter are run out of the same building as the main store, but are completely seperate businesses. So if you live in the area, see someting online that you like, you can walk in and pick it up there. Warehouse for the catalog store is the same for the main store as well, but some things available on-line aren't available in the main store... so you walk over to the catalog counter and grab it there.

    That's why I quit using the Wolf. Didn't mind the carbon, but that laquer buildup sucked. Figured I'd give this stuff a try and let you know how it does. Can always take it to the local gunshow and sell it fast if I don't like it.
