Granted its brand new and it still might be a little tight. The rifle would short stroke and the rounds would hang up on the feed ramps. But my carbine at the stuff without a hicup.

Is the rifle lightly lubed? Sometimes too much or too little lube makes them choke.
My 20" HBAR routinely (maybe 20%) choked on Wolf. It almost never locked back on an empty mag when shooting Wolf. The same rifle shot all of my reloads flawlessly,as well as all other factory ammo that I fed to it.
Search under the troubleshooting forum. You'll probably find info there about port pressure problems with Wolf in some 20" bbl rifles.

Even though wolf isn't top rated ammo, I am a little disappointed if it doesn't run my rifles. I have 20" SAM-R clone that can't shoot silver bear because I think the extractor strength is so strong, it rips the rims right off the case when trying to eject. Either that or a tight chamber...

Wolf is very lightly loaded, i.e. underpowered. There's 2 ways to remedy this......
1) Open up the gas port.....

2) Go to a reduced power (RP) spring from Wolff.

ETA
Carbine length gas systems work at higher pressures than rifle length ones. The lack of pressure will be more noticeable on the rifles.

Some carbine manufacturers routinely oversize their ports to get more positive cycling. When fitted to a M16 lower, these tend to run like buzz guns...... If you load Q3131A (or the HOT Malaysian surplus) and Wolff, you'll see a difference in cyclic rate.
