I saw a short blurb in shotgun news that they are going to make a 75 grain load for the civilian market loaded to 5.56 pressures. Did anyone else see this?

The 75gr load is listed in the 2006 catalog under the Wolf Gold ammo:

Looks interesting if the price is right. I could not find pricing information.

I was told by GUNWRITR? but for got the FPS out of 20incher? But its up there

I just hope they'll price it right. If so, and it offers good terminal performance, Wolf could own the 556 ammo market.

It was 2750fps out of a 20". If they are measuring NATO pressures at the chamber, then they didn't use the right powder because that is the same speed seen from Hornady TAP 75gr .223 out of a 20". My guess is there was an error playing the telephone game and they are measuring .223 pressures that correspond with the .223 velocities they quoted.
