Can't get enough of that cheap russian ammo. I sure wish they would make a 300 whisper. Ofcourse I would hate the idea of trying to clean that surpressor afterwards. One load in a subsonic 220gn hp and a sonic 150 gr sp. Then I would be happy. I guess though they will smell me out before they would hear the rounds. this maybe a good poll question.

70+ gr 5.56mm load?

Cheap M2 ball spec 30-06, non-corrosive. Feeding my Garand is getting prohibitive, dammit.

9x39

kind of a 9mm whisper round, its a standard AK round necked up to 9mm

I was under the impression that wolf .308 and 30.06 was on the way.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 4:59:47 PM EST
.308 that is cheaper than surplus

I'm too 'fraid to use russian ammo. Is it safe?

No, itll rape your family and shoot your dog if you turn your back on it.

Didn't the govn't tried a steel case 30/06 in WWII? I forgot about my M1 garrand needing some chow.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 5:12:34 PM EST
I cant imagine Wolf in .308 being any cheaper than Port at $149/1000.... and definitely wont be as accurate. However, if/when the surplus dries up, it sure will be nice FAL blasting ammo.

That reminds me... I think I need to stock up on some more port.

Doesn't Barnall (SP?) Offer a 30 -06 loading?
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 5:25:55 PM EST
.44 rem mag, (and .357 mag/.38 special, but I don't have a gun in that yet), .45-70, and .30-06. All my other guns are in calibers that Wolf supplies.

If the revolution comes, I am able to use looted supplies.

.308 and 30.06.

I tried wolf a few years ago, It was a smokey mess in my AR, it fed like shit and caused a jam that I could not clear on the range. I have not used it since.

It Barnaul any better or has wolf improved in the last few years?

.50 Cal.,BMG,linked up 4 and one.4 AP+1 APTI ready to feed the M2 BMG.

7.62x25 Tokarev & 7.62x39R Nagant. Never happen with the 7.62x25 though, part of the trade agreement with Russia puts the kibosh on it. They could have it made elsewhere, like the German made Wolf shotshells.

Huh, you guys like Russian loads.

Wolf has improved. Try the stuff with the gray casings instead of the green casings. For cheap blasting ammo at a time when decent 5.56 surplus seems impossible to come by, I think its serviceable. Of course I would never depend on it for my life, but it doesn't cost 20 cents a shot like SS109 either...

Talon is the american version of russian .50 cal.


Quality assurance? Whats that? </talon employee>


7.62x25 is banned like you said so who knows if we're gonna get that lifted any time soon.

Ditto again. I think Barnaul has some 30-06, but it bends the op-rod.

I want .30 Cal Carbine!!

I have a ad from Wolf stating that they would be soon making this.

They made 30.06 ammo. But they are not as cheap as the 223 or 762x39. And they are not even close to the M2 ball spec. So stay away from them.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 7:46:30 PM EST
At least Silver Bear 30-06 is good for my Garand.

I love that portuguese 7.62 NATO stuff in the battlepacks, but damn it stinks if you are in an enclosed range area (cough*CCGR*cough).

Wolf and other russkie surplus smells like a sweet bouqet compared to that stuff.

I will be happy with anyone that can make cheap 7.5x55 Swiss for plinking, Im getting low on my GP-11 stock.

Barnaul .308 sp, 124g fmj 9mm, 147g fmj 9mm, and .38 Special sp. Barnaul has been the most accurate of all the Russian brands in my guns.

That's what I want, too!! .30 Carbine! Lots of interest in this type of round from Wolf from just about all Carbine shooters I talk with.

If Wolf starts eating into domestic business, expect a Bill Ruger scenerio shortly thereafter...

32-40 so I can shoot my Father's old '94.
