What's the most Wolf .223 ammo have you shot at one time without cleaning or serious failures?

My personal best so far has been about 280 rnds mix of laquer and polymer.

Uh... about 1,000 rounds

Approx 150 at one session. Damn those AK hand guards get hot.

2300 rounds at the last Eden, VT shoot. These went through 3 Colt uppers. But at least half went through the 11.5". Uppers were clean and lubed at commencement, but received absolutely no cleaning or lubrication whatsoever over the two day shoot. Only failures were mag related (Orlites) failures to feed.

No matter how hard I try, I can only fire 1 at a time.

I'm doing an experiment. I have one rifle that I'm firing Wolf only in, and not cleaning it. No probs so far at about 500 rounds. RRA lower with Bushmaster 11.5 upper 5.5"FH.

Around 1000 or so. Shot about 700 first day at the Hun Farm in May. Put the weapon away dirty . Shot another 300 or so the next day and had 1 FTE. Tapped it out with a cleaning rod, bore snaked it twice and then proceded to run about another 600 rounds through it no problems.

Rifle was a RRA A2 upper with non-chrome Wilson 16" BBL.
Stag lower.

800+ of .223 laquered stuff through an AC556 with no failures at one shoot. 1400 rds of 9mm polymer coated in an Uzi with no failures and about 500 .45acp through Uzis and pistols with no failures.

Never had a failure ever using 7.62X39 in any gun.

About 400 rounds so far through my Bushy without cleaning. I'm looking to see how far mine will go as well.

1500 in one day, 3500 total(Wolf) before a cleaning. Before it was vleaned there was also about 1k of mixed Black Hills 68gr and 75gr and also assorted 55gr stuff. It had about a total of 4500 in it before it was cleaned, but only 3500 was wolf.

I remembered someone having 10k+ wolf down their barrel without a cleaning.. hmm cant seem to remember who.
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 2:55:26 PM EDT
500 rounds poly wolf .223 "mostly mag dumps" no cleaning. Oly P.C.R rifle. Now that I remeber I'm going to give it a good clean/lube.

If lubing the bolt group is not consider "cleaning", then about 800rds. Usually will do 400-500 round without stop, then put some CLP into the bolt grop, lube up and proceed to shoot another 300 rounds or so before I get tired/bored.

ETA: It was done on two of my upper. One is a BM 20" A2 Gov. profile barrel mount to a Colt A2 upper; the other one is a BM M4 profile barrel mounted to a RRA A3 upper. Both upper shoot fine with mix of my colt and BM lower.

48 hours, 5 shooters = 7k

no issues to report... Shoot it up!
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 5:41:15 PM EDT
5 rounds, just for chrono'ing only.
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 7:31:14 PM EDT
1k
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 7:34:12 PM EDT
Clean? What is this "clean" you speak of?
Link Posted: 8/17/2005 1:55:04 AM EDT
About 600 through one gun, in one day. No problems whatsoever, except I left the range $60 poorer.
Link Posted: 8/17/2005 5:25:35 AM EDT
1500 thru the M16, no problemo.
Link Posted: 8/17/2005 5:32:28 AM EDT
I clean my ar after about every 500 rounds of wolf.
Link Posted: 8/17/2005 8:07:59 PM EDT
350 rounds thru a bush 16 in and 250 rounds thru a rock river arms 20in. no problems Also shot 50 round olympic ss109 thru the rr. All the ammo I brought that day

A little over 1K rounds at one range session, with 7K+ rounds with no cleaning. 4 stickies in those 7K+ rounds. AR still operates 100% unless I try to bumpfire.

360, polymar coated. not one problem. The mags that were used were Original Colts,DPMS,BFI all 30 rounders teflon coated the DPMS were the only ones with black followers. The reason I added the mags is because I found out thru time and experience that good quality mil-spec mags make a whole lot of difference in making a AR fire without problems. I can get into range shooting experiences with cheap mags vs. good quality mags using wolf ammo.

Hell no telling how many Ive shot..And I save so much money shooting Wolf that I just buy new barrels when they get fouled and dirty....
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 7:51:58 AM EDT
500 rounds is the most I've shot at one time, no failures. I've shot around 3000 rounds total with no failures, and all of this was with the laquer coating.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 1:24:28 PM EDT
500"poly" in one session no problems at all. I clean after every time. DPMS AP4
