What if you removed the laquer caoting on wolf ammo with a remover like "dad's", would the ammo casing rust very quickly or after a month or so? Seems like a lot of people dislike wolf because of that reason and many more. I dont want to start a thread on wolf, but more of what would the casing or round do if the laquer was removed.

Thanks

The casing would most likely get stuck in the chamber. Since steel doesn't contract as quickly as brass and you have removed the laquer (which acts somewhat as a lubricant), the bolt would start extraction mode before the case stopped clinging to the chamber walls. HTH

Your time and money are better spent buying better ammo. Cheap "white box" Federal American Eagle, UMC (Remington), Winchester Q3131A (made by IMI), or even South African battle packs, all are better performing ammo, and can be had for only a little more than the Wolf.

The brass case has a natural lubricity with steel, and is softer, so will not scratch the chamber of your rifle. The steel cased ammo, with the lacquer on, the lacquer gums up in the chamber. If you remove it, you are scratching steel against steel.

Buy brass cased ammo. Your rifle will thank you.
