The price from Ammoman on Wolf ammuntion looks pretty good. Is Wolf ok? I've always used winchester in small amounts. I'm about to buy a case to start with when I get my new AR. What should I get that is both reliable and inexpensive?

Nevermind guys. I've read other threads. Sorry I didn't read them first. I'll get some to plink with after my break in period and maybe some winchester or lake City to put up for a rainy day.

Terrible ammo. It's cases are supposedly coated in lacquer, containing the rendered remains of puppies and kittens. It's propellant has been known to cause indegestion in labratory rats. It's bullets travel well in excess of the national speed limit, and contain lead, a known poisionous metal. Meplat-

It runs great in AK's and it's not that dirty and hard to clean my AK at all!

Although this post is about their 7.62x54R and not .223, I will say that it was loaded on the lighter side, fairly accurate, but it was the [B]DIRTIEST[/B] ammo I have seen yet.

I just shot 500 rounds through my new A3 20" bushmaster the other day, 1 hard primer was the only malfunction. No jams. The only thing about the russian ammo that I don't like are the little red flecks of primer sealant that you have to clean out but thats the only issue I have with it. Works fine, and cheap.

I have shot approximately 2,500 rounds of the Wolf 55 and 62-gr .223 ammo with ZERO failures of any kind any no lacquer-coated breech or bore problems. However, I have noticed the following consistent negative attributes with this ammo: - it is definitely dirty, requiring a detailed cleaning of the barrel, gas tube and bolt group after each use. - always seem to have a few flyers in each box. - seems underpowered a bit and powder smoke smells weird. - hard steel cases defintiely leave flecks of metal in the AR's upper and lower aluminum receivers, which can't be good. On the plus side, Wolf ammo is cheap plinking stuff (1,000 rds at Sportsman's Guide for only $91) and creates a competitive marketplace that helps keep the cost of other ammo down. That being said, I am using up my last Wolf lot of 500-rds, probably won't purchase any more and I'm waiting for another load of that great PMP South African surplus 5.56 mm M1A3 stuff to hit the market.

its dirty and it smells funny, but then again i eat alot of beans and i dont shower much so it might just be me... anyway, try it, if you like it,use it, if not, dont use it. i havent had any problems with it in my AR and neither has my brother, we split cases all of it the time. of course i prefer L.C. but the budget doesnt always allow for it. as for my com-bloc rifles, they just wouldnt be com-bloc rifles without wolf. always clean your gun after each use. thats good advice for anybody though.

I've shot over 600rds of Wolf 7.62x54R, it was great stuff and non-corrosive. Beats cleaning or dead primers with the surplus. I also like Wolf 223 as I've just got in another 4k. The 9mm is a bit dirty but at $75/k, I couldn't pass it up. The 7.62x39 FMJ is fine but don't bother with the HP stuff for an AK as most won't feed properly. When will Wolf come out with .308? I want some cheap 308 now!!!
