Does anyone have the specs on the .223 55gr Wolf Polymer ammo? I was looking for it, and couldn't find it anywhere. They claim 3240.

Thanks!

Probably measured with a 24" BBL

I recall correctly, it was around 2800.

One of the biggest complaints was how weakly loaded, yet dirty this ammo is. I don't know, since I dont have a chrony. People express a tremendous difference between this ammo and XM193. I seriously doubt Wolf breaks 3,000fps.

Ive shot around 2k of the lacquer 62 gr, and it was VERY weak, compared to XM193...was just wondering if the 55g poly got "uploaded"

The wolf .45 poly is on par with most loads....seems to be just right (850 fps)

I chronographed some when it first came out & IIRC the average was around 2775.

Anyone chrony wolf out of a 16" 1-9?

Just to update: Ive fired the lacquer 55gr, 62 gr, and poly 55gr out of a 16" colt over the past 2 years.

The lacquer used to jam after about 1k rounds, the poly hasnt yet. The poly feels like it has more "bump"

I know its way underpowered, just fishing (trolling? ) for someone who has actually chrono'd the stuff.

In my 16" 1in9 , (chrome-molly, 5..56 chamber) Poly Wolf 55gr 5..56 clocked at 2650ft/sec. As anemic as that sounds, the one thing that surprised me was how consistent it was. I shot 30 rounds over the chrono, no single round was bellow 2640 and none above 2660, with most between 2645 and 2655. That is amazingly consistent in my book.

Consistent, but slower than a 55gr FMJ needs to be going to fragment.

sobrbiker883,

The Wolf ammo is for practice, not defense. The jacket on the bullet is too thick to fragment anyway.

Yeah and the Wolf .223 bullets have jackets that are too thick to allow fragmenting anyway.

EDIT: beat me to it.
