    saw this over on arfcom, 5.45 this time
    http://ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=4&f=64&t=88548
    My Bulgarian 5.45 blew at the range yesterday.
    t was built by a well know and respected person on these boards. I was using Wolf ammo. I was on my third magazine since I bought the rifle, I pulled back and released the bolt carrier . When I pulled the trigger all I felt was a massive concussion, thank God I was wearing glasses. When I looked down the receiver cover was gone, the bolt and carrier were jammed about 1/2 way back. The guy next to me checked to see if I was alright and went back to get my receiver cover, 20 feet behind me. When I looked at the breech I saw that it was a total case head separation that caused the problem. The bore was clear but the front of the case is still stuck in the chamber, the case separated just forward of the head and it was nowhere to be found. The trunion is bulged on the right side as is the receiver and rails. The gun is basically DOA. My question to the board. Was it the ammo or was the rifles headspace way out or could there be another problem? I am not injured I just want to get my rifle back and running. What is the best way to resolve this issue? My fear is that I may get stuck in a fight between the builder and Wolf who was to blame. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

    Ammo was Wolf 60 gr hp Lot # N038-03

    The builder e-mailed me to send him the rifle asap. So I took some pics and it will be off tommorrow. I anyone wants the pics I can e-mail them to you. I examined the damage better today. The trunion is slightly bulged out to the right and so is the receiver and the rails 1/2 way back are bent upward. The top of the right locking lug in the trunion is broken-shaved off at a 45 degree angle.

    Midwest over here. :x:

    :hsugh:


    Contacted Wolf:

    Hi. My Name is John. I was just wondering as to why the price of Wolf ammunition has recently skyrocketed. It has become almost as expensive as Remington brand .223. I wouldn't be complaining but at the same time, I have head stories from some of my friends on an AR15 website saying that their firearm blew up while using Wolf ammunition.

    The recent jump in cost of ammunition almost to the same price of American made new production ammo combined with the expectability of Wolf ammunition to lethally malfucntion leads me to the conclusion that I will never buy Wolf ammo.

    You can't charge that much for defective ammo.
    Noone will buy it.

    If you can give me a good reason as to why the price of your ammo has skyrocketed, Im all ears.
    I would also like to know the possible causes of the Wolf ammunition to malfunction.

    Thanks
    Respectfully,
    John




    Am on top of the situation.
    Will have the price of wolf back down within the next month :hsugh:

    what you've just sent is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having read it.

    If any of you guys are near Cali, send me a PM for where to dispose of your wolf ammo :x:

    seriously though, I have no problem with shooting wolf. Its not the most accurate/powerful/clean stuff around, but it gets the job done.

    Well, as you're aware, no other ammunition has ever had a problem. Only wolf. :rolleyes:

    I honestly hope people slow down their purchases of wolf, so I can stock up more. :x:
