I can't afford to be buying SS109 all the time.
There is nothing wrong with Wolf ammo for general plinking. It's not going to give you match grade accuracy, and it's dirtier than other ammo, but there's no reason not to use it for plinking.
As long as my gun doesn't blow up, I don't give a fuck. But that's what's worrying me.
I've ran a couple of thousand rounds through my AR and not had a problem. I wouldn't recommend it for anything else but range use however.
I find it ironic that Wolf gets such a crazy reputation for it's ammo (which I shoot the fuck out of, and enjoy), but people have no problem buying 1950's era surplus shit, to run through their 80yr old beat to fuck surplus rifles.
Just a strange paradox to me.
Ain't nobody gonna ship it to someone under 21.
I got a 1000rds for $269 and I'm under 21.
But they're out of stock.
This is amazing, not a single anti-wolf comment yet. I thought everyone here shot nothing but Black Hills Sierra Match King loads.
I'll throw one in. The steel case can cause premature wear and lead to extraction problems in the AR 15. It's not bad ammo though, I run it through the AK all the time and never had a problem. You just need to be careful with some guns.
Premature wear in what way?
No shit, I've never used wolf because everybody talks so much shit about it. I think I may go ahead and pick some up
i've shot wolf for 8 years no problem. Two of my friends had problems with it in their ARs. the throat expanded in the chamber and siezed the gun
Wat? The throat is part of the barrel. Are you talking about the case neck?
I don't like the cat pee blowback smell in my AR. It works just fine though along with brown bear
So don't rapid fire Wolf, then start shooting brass cased stuff. Just plink with the Wolf and clean the rifle when you're done.
EDIT: And that doesn't count as "wear"
I'm trying to sell my 411 rounds of wolf .223
yea, i was referring to where the case is necked/ throated down for the projectile
Case necks always expand like that, that's perfectly normal. Benchrest guys will fireform their cases so they expand to the dimensions of the chamber. Most complaints about Wolf cases are that the steel won't expand properly to seal the gas pressure. I find it hard to believe that your friends' cases not only expanded further than anybody reports steel cases expanding, but they expanded with such force that they actually seized the rifle. I bet something else went wrong.
INTERESTING. I hadn't read that article before. Sounds like maybe a good solution would be to have two brass cartridges in each magazine to keep the chamber clean, eh? Like, number 15 and number 30...
someone buy my wolf
I've got 515rds of it left. I bought a bunch and it ran alright, but then I started to have cycling problems and a case jammed in the chamber and I had to take the gun apart to get the case out.
515rds I'll sell for cheap. Let me know.
Is it the polymer cased stuff?
