I just bought a case of Wolf, and while loading it onto strippers, I noticed about 10% of the rounds have copper flakes near where the bullet meets the casing, almost like the casing shaved them off of the jacked as the bullet was seated. Is this to be expected from Wolf, or did I get a crappier than normal batch?

Also, will this gum up the works of my gun (copper flakes getting into moving parts and getting stuck?)

I doubt the flakes will hurt anything. If not, you can send it to me for free. Got any pcitures BTW?

I wouldn't worry about it.

I figured i'd get some smartass to offer to take my problem off of my hands. I didnt figure it would bother anything. I'll get rid of it the old fassioned way (rapid fire!)

I've noticed the same "flakes" on some of the Wolf rounds that I have...
I think you're right... It just looks like a bit of the copper got shaved off as the bullet was seated.

I had the same concern about it gumming up the works, so I scraped it off with a stripper clip.
Just run the tab around the top of the neck and it comes right off.

By the title, I thought you were announcing a new breakfast cereal.

I thought he was remarking on the mental stability of Wolf shooters.
