This isn't polymer coated steel cased stuff.

How do you know how well this stuff will perform? The Wolf gold line is pretty nice.

This is the first I've heard of it but I'd like to know more.

Not true.

The Hornady 75gr OTMs provide some of the best terminal performance available for the 5.56. If these Wolf rounds behave similarly to the Hornady 75gr or Nosler 77gr then there would be another inexpensive source of heavy OTMs for defensive use.

Or at the very least something that may shoot to the same POA.

Wolf introduced a brass cased 75 grain Multi-Purpose Tactical .223 load at the SHOT Show. It's being manufactured by Prvi Partizan in Serbia, and is brass cased, boxer primed and features a HPBT Match type bullet. I had a chance to visit the factory and have talked to the head of the design team leading this project. The round is specifically designed to shoot well when fired in a 1-9" twist barrel, and it has a cannelure to prevent bullet set-back during feeding in autoloading weapons. Terminal performance is supposed to be similar to MK262 Mod 1. Although this is not a match grade round, accuracy of 10 shot groups has been good. Test groups were right at (or less than) 1 inch at 100 yards for 10 shots. Muzzle velocity will run at 2,750 fps from a 20 inch barrel. Price is intended to be inexpensive, about the same as their M193 ball. This load was developed to provide MK262 terminal performance at M193 prices. It should be perfect for training, stockpiling and shooting Zombies with......once someone like DocGKR has a look at it hopefully we'll get the thumbs up for self protection too!

Looks interesting to me.

Heavy stuff is also great for us running 14.5" and smaller barrels and not have to worry to much about velocity.
A longer round is typically longer, so it is more likely to tumble on impact like the 5.45 rounds.
they also clearly state this is not meant to be a tack driver round, it is meant to be optimized for terminal performance not for putting holes in paper so they have made the bullet with SBR's and 1/7-1/9 twists.
I am looking forward to testing them.
