I hear its kinda crappy unless you want to hand pick through it and even then its ok for plinking at best. But I have never tried it. I figure anything that is reject of the reject must have shitty QC anyway so I just stay away from it. I would rather shoot wolf then the PD stuff anyday

ive seen some and it looked ok to me but i have never tried any in my rifle, thats why i want to try some, i guess ill end up buying a thousand rounds to try it out. i dont like wolf, only because it makes my rifle so dirty. i also heard that they always throw about 30 or 40 rounds more anyways for the ones you throw away. fromthe stuff ive seen it all looked good to me, only a few had very minor dents, i just want to see how it handles in my gun. im not worried about the quality issue. its not that great of risk to me. ive heard more horror storys with wolf than with the pd stuff, but i take everything i hear with a grain of salt thats why i dont worry about the scare tactics.

The grain of salt is good. I personally have had better exp with the NEW wolf then any other cheap plinking ammo. + its cheraper.

I've bought 3000 rds from Natchez, shot around 300 rds of it. It's worked fine and looks good.
I've dug into all three boxes of the ammo and not found a cull yet. I have found one or two that had some slight dings in shoulders but not anything that would prevent it from shooting!

Have you ordered from them before N? Is their stuff actually in stock?

Has anyone shot the Wolf Brass XM193 yet?
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:21:24 AM EDT
I haven't but I haven't considered it since I saw the price. It seemed to me like WWB from Wallyworld was cheaper.

I havn't ordered any lately, but I've bought a shit load of steel cased from them in the past three years and it's always been delivered in the same week, call them when you order and ask about S&H, if you order enough they'll give you a slight break on shipping.

The Wolf brass cased ammo is manufactured by Prvi Partizan, this is supposed to be first class ammo, much better quality than M193.

I'd like to see what the actual fps is when crono'd in a 16" and 20" AR, reminds that I need to get new screens for mine.
