Somebody help me out here please. I remember reading somewhere that the new Wolf is going to be made by Barnaul.....maybe? Isn't it Barnaul the makes the Bears? Please lay this all straight for me. Thanks, 9080

The Bear ammo is made by Barnaul. I also read somewhere here that Wolf was going to be made by Barnaul but I'm not sure if its 100% true.

The WPA ammo I just got in from AIM was made at Barnaul. So ....Yes, it's true.

How is the "new Wolf" packaged? Is it obviously different? Is this stuff what's in the "WPA" packaging? I've always had good results from Barnaul-made ammo, so I'm interested in trying it out.

Wolf is only an importer. There are multiple factories that Wolf has used in the past. Recently they began sourcing SOME of their ammo from Barnaul, but not ALL. Bryan from AIM Surplus confirmed that the WPA .223 was from Barnaul but he did not give specifics on other calibers.

I think most Wolf was made by Tula.

Most Wolf was made by Tula, but when the Military Classic line came out, it was made by Ulyanovsk and some by Barnaul as I recall.

Hey Caflin, how did it run? Clean, dirty? Minute of barndoor? What's the scoop? Thanks, 9080

Most Russian ammo, made by Russians, has generally been "minute of barndoor" (and sometimes "minute-of-the-side-of-the-barn"). I swear, one batch of Wolf Poly .223 (62 gr) I got for my VEPR-K had propellant made from Uncle Joe Stalin's old socks (when did he die, 1953?) Wolf bought out Prvi Partisan, IIRC, and their stuff is real good, compared to the stuff made in the Motherland, but that's because the factory is still staffed by the Serbians.

For me, Tula gets about 3" at 50 yards with iron sights. Good enough for plinking ammo.

Wolf did not "buy out" Prvi-they market some of Prvi's products, now as "Wolf Gold," but you can still get Prvi ammo under Prvi's brand. Academy Sports' "Monarch Brass" line is made by Prvi, as well.
