I heard some people are are having the same problems with the new polymer wolf as they were having with the laquered.

Any one run into this problem?

Like, it's so got to be that red sealant! Nono, it's the laquer! Nono, it's the polymer!

Ohmygod!

It is the fact it is cheap dirty ammo that is only suitable for your ememy's AK.

Wolf Poo, don't step in it.

I am bias because I am tired of seeing the aftermath...

Works fine for me.

Both thru my .223 Mak90 and my 16" AR.

Just clean afterwards.



I have fired upto 300 rounds of the stuff in one afternoon without a problem.

sgtar15,

I didn't know you had that bad of a cat problem. (300 in an afternoon)

MT

You will find more problems with the use of Wolf in rifles ordered with Match Grade chambers....and why people run Wolf in that weapon is beyond me...+1 on te cases out of spec.

I don't think it has much to do with lacquer but more with that several Wolf Cases I have measure have been slightly long.

I have had no problems with the polymer coated ammo.

Just shot 60 rounds of that stuff through my AR yesterday, sure did make for a messy cleanup. Never seen my AR so dirty! But the footage I shot was great!!! I took a 12 inch GI JOE and filled his head up with fake blood. When I pulled the trigger I thought I had done something terribly wrong it looked so real!!! If I can figure out how to get the footage on my computer, it would be better...

There you have it...

If planning on killing 12" action figures use wolf ammunition.

I want to see the footage.

I have used it, and I think for the money you cant go wrong. I never had any operational problems with my AR's while shooting it

If you can tell me how to convert old school vhs tape to a computer, i'll do it, cause it's awesome footage!

Thousands of rounds and not a single problem in my bushy. I figure at $80/1000rds, i saved enough to buy a new rifle if i had to.............Dirty, yes, but dont you clean after every shoot anyway?

I bought two 500 rnd tins from SG for less than $100 awhile ago, so far about 600 rnds have gone through my AR and my only problems have been the 20 rounds mags I have.

I'm sure that there is more accurate ammo out there, but this stuff works fine for blasting the limbs off a downed tree.

Using quality brass ammo, I've gone thru 8,000 rounds without issue.

With Wolf Poly, I've had 2 rounds out of 500 get stuck in the chamber. The cases had dark blue lines on them, like the polymer had melted. If that's Russian QC, I don't want any more of it.
