The Amunition Store has Wolf Polymer on special for 89.95. I'm going camping in a month out in the Sand Hills of Nebraska
( The biggest golf course in the world, 1/3 of the state, no people, just cattle) and need ammo to burn. Four days of sleeping and shooting .Is it worth the gamble or should iI buy a couple of flavors in case the Wolf doesn"t work well in my M4.
So far my M4 has only 160 rounds through it .??

I've had great luck with Wolf, both old and new styles in all my ARs, but with Wolf being a bit underpowered I've always made it a habit of running 5 to 600 rounds of LC or Q3131a before I move to Wolf. New ARs can be tight and a bit ammo sensitive until they've had a few rounds through them, no sense giving it low powered ammo in the beginning unless you want to get some practice with malfunction clearance drills... My experience, YMMV...

I'm afraid my mileage did not vary.

I have an upper with very low round count that has become my favorite. I had been shooting Winchester whitebox. Earlier this week, I loaded a couple of mag's up with wolf. Failure was to strip a round off the top of the mag. Often, there would be a scratch along the body of the round, but it would fail to get picked up. Empties were ejecting, but I was reduced to a single shot. Hand cycling the rounds in worked.

I had 30 or 40 rounds of winchester with me. Loaded it up and it ran flawelessly. My other upper shoots everything fine.

Is this what I"m dealing with, I need to wear in my rifle with hotter rounds and try the wolf afterwards?

TIA
