Wolf is BAD BAD BAD! Did I mention It's bad? seriously, if you have a tight chamber, this ammo will not shoot. Give it a try, if it works you found some very cheap ammo, just don't invest in a case till you know if it shoots.

I think he probably meant Wolf Ammo works in his SKS, not .223......................................... [;D]

Wolf works well in my Colt 16 inch. The acuracy is... satifactory. Between 2.5-4inches. Best of all it's cheap. Since we got the little ones (ages 3-4) I haven't had time to reload.

does anything out of russia have brass cases? I've never seen any

I've tried this lacquer coated stuff in both my AR's and as soon as the chamber heats up, the cases get stuck & the gun jams every shot. It just doesn't work with a tight AR chamber. The coating on the shells gum-up the chamber. The ONLY time I've had 100% reliability with an AR-15 is with decent brass cased ammo On the other hand...my 7.62 AK's get this stuff in them all the time and they NEVER jam.

I have also had problems with Wolf. Same as dragraceart, laquer coating melts in chamber, and "glues" casing to chamber. As far as buying a box and trying it, I did that, had no problems with the first 3 boxes, then every other shell after that seemed to jam. Buy South African surplus, cheap, brass, a little dirty but, good bang for the buck.

My bushy AK Shorty eats it like an AK-47 would. My friend's Mini-14 hated it, and both my 1911 and H&K USP .45 hate it. The .45's think that laquer is glue and the action had to be pried open.

Cases of PMC 55gr fmjbt don't cost a whole lot. I'd rather shoot Korean stuff in my AR than Ruskie stuff. How much does that Wolf stuff cost?

I broke an extractor on the first shot of Wolf in my carbon 15.Over a 1000 PMC without a hitch before that.Whas it the ammo,don't know.But im going to try at least one more.Iv' seen .223&7.62x39 for $75.00 a thousand at the gunshow.Hope I find something it works in at that price.

the oly arms web site has a big warning page about using laquor coated ammo. they say it can ruin your AR. they say most russian and european ammo is not good for your AR. is the south african stuff laguored?

SA battle pack ammo is brass cased and berdan primed. It works great. I'm thinking or ordering 3000 rds or so.
