S&B 12 pellet 00 is my standard range ammo. Is Wolf cheaper than $4.98/10?
Link Posted: 4/12/2006 7:05:07 PM EST
Want to say it was around $2.00 bucks plus change a box (5).
I've used the S&B and its good stuff IMO.
Could always go cheaper (read: less money)

Good stuff and made in Germany. It says Schonebeck on the brass.
I use it in my Benelli M3-90 and it's clean and no problems at all.

I buy S&B.. 10 rounds for $3, how can you go wrong? I pay that much for 5 rounds of Remington at Bi-Mart... I've shot at least 500 rounds of the 00 buckshot with zero problems. It's hot, but reliable. For full powered 00 buck, it's the only way to go.

S&B 12 Gauge @ OMC

I've used it. Tested a bunch of different loads in my 870 couple months back. Wolf is cheap, pretty clean, hard recoil compared to others. Great for practice, but I wouldn't use it for self defense. The ammo shoots well, but it's pattern sucks big time compared to pretty much anything else. Very wide and random, with flyers more often than not. Like I said, I still use some for practice, or if someone wants to shoot some buckshot, but I carry my favorite load, Federal low recoil 00 buck 9 pellet. You can't beat it at $3.00 box. If anyone wants to see my test pattern papers, let me know. I think I've still got them around . . . .

Thank you for that information. I wanted to know if it patterned worth a flip, or not.

Got mine from Sportsman's Guide. Good price. Shoots hard and patterns well out of my 2 shotguns, Moss 590 and FN SLP.

To add more to my last post, the Wolf patterns well enough to probably put someone down, but it's not consistant enough for me. It's about $2 a box here and for $3 a box I can get the good consistance of Federal or Remington. Like I said, good for practice or fun, not for business, but better than nothing.

Cetainly not a defensive load. It patterns very poorly, even at close range. I have fired Wolf 00 Buck out of my Remington 870's, Mossbergs and Winchesters, all with disapointing results. S&B is a much better option, while it doesn't pattern all that well, its certainly better than Wolf. Shoot a few rounds of Wolf 00 Buck, and then fire a few rounds of Winchester or Federal 00 buck and you will quickly understand why it should be a practice-only load.....its not even that great for practice, especially when you can get 15 rounds of Winchester 00 buck for 6.50.

It is made by Lapua at their Schonebeck, Germany plant.

I just got a case (250 rounds) in from Sportsmans Guide for $78 shipped to my front door(thats with a $10 off coupon and complimentary 1 month buyers club membership). That's $1.56 per box of 5.

I shot a few boxes out of my Moss. 590SP. It is a very hard hitter, on both ends. I'm a thin guy- 6'1", 140 lbs. so I felt a little pain but what can I expect.

It put 8 of 9 pellets on an IPSC silhouette at 15 yds. Those eight pellets stayed reasonably tight on target but there are just those occasional fliers. It was able to get 5 pellets in the head and neck area when I aimed for the head. So its not the greatest stuff patterning wise( I wouldn't say it's poor, though) but overall it's a great practice round at an excellent price.

I've never used S&B ammo so I can't comment on that.

I'll be keeping some on hand for practice and SHTF use, but I use the Wal-Mart 15 rd value packs of Winchester Super-X 00 BK for home defense. Those go for $6.87 per box of 15 (before tax) after the recent price hike.

At minimum, get a LimbSaver recoil pad. From what everybody is saying, the Knoxx SpecOps is better.

I'll stick to wally world $7 bucks for 15rds of remy 00 buck.

+1

I've found that after adding s/h to online ammo orders... it's still cheaper at Wally's Wolrld for good ammo.

Wolf 00 Buck is what I keep loaded in my 870 for home defense purposes. At in-home ranges, I have no complaint. Probably the biggest detractor for me is that they are longer than 2.75". My seven round Remington magazine holds only six Wolf shotshells.

The low recoil PMC buckshot that I bought....... now that stuff patterns much much worse.

Are they roll crimped? Shells that are star crimped are about 2 1/4" loaded, roll crimped is longer. They are all 2 3/4" as empty hulls.

Empty hulls


Loaded shells- left to right Aquila, 2 3/4" shell, 3" shell

Perhaps what I should have said was "They are longer than their American counterparts". I have not actually measured them.
Link Posted: 4/19/2006 10:19:03 AM EST
Generally speaking roll crimped shells are longer loaded than star crimped shells; it doesn't matter if they are domestic, foreign, or hand loaded. The end result is what you experienced, you get one less shell in the tube.

I used to think that somebody goofed, until I put them to a ruler.
