Thread: Wolf Ammo

  1. I have an AR and have used several hundred rds. I did have one issue with a failure to extract but pretty much figured out that my AR had a problem w/ the BCG's extractor spring. It is very stinky, dirty Russian ammo but shouldn't you be cleaning your rifle anyway after every trip to the range? I think I get Wolf 5.56 for around $5.75/20 at the local shop here. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but isn't TulAmmo the same stuff as Wolf now? The gun shop guy here said the two companys are the same?

    Treat your Firearm with Froglube and you will have no problems. Easy clean up, the "dirty" wipes right off.

    I use Wolf in my AKs with no problem. They'll eat anything. I buy it in bulk and get it for around $4.60/box when all is said and done. I choose not to use it in my other weapons. There are plenty of other good, inexpensive 5.56/.223 choices out there.

    My Bushmaster Patrolman's Carbine will not run with Wolf. That is the only ammo it doesn't like. I have tried Wolf in my Mini 30, it doesn't like it either. After some research I learned that the Mini 30 chamber is cut to a different spec so the steel cases give it fits. Any brass cased ammo shoots just fine in it. I have tried Wolf in some pistol calibers and never had issues other than not wanting to be down wind.

    For the price I love it and use it all the time. I have never had a problem with it. What I use is Wolf Military Classic.

    Now if you are talking personal defense rounds there are better options however.

    I have used Wolf in 7.62x39 and .223/5.45 in my SKS, Mini-30, and Saiga .223. The only problem is hard russian primers. That is probably a defense against slam fire in the SKS. I have never had an issue with Wolf. The sticking issue in ARs is probably the carbon build up mentioned earlier, but would most likely occur when using softer brass (foreign surplus) after firing many dirty steel case rounds.

    They now have a Gold Line that is not bad at all in 7.62x54r.

    Wolf is cheap and perfect for target/SHTF.

    My Mini-30 did not like Wolf until I put in a Wolff recoil spring upgrade and smoothed the sharp edges around the breach (soft points stuck).

    A design error on Ruger IMHO.

    The only gun I buy steel case ammo for is my AK74, I currently buy only TulAmmo. I used Wolf before... most of the rounds fed and fired, and extracted fine. But, then I had one failure to extract... had to literally kick the bolt open with my boot. That was it, I will never buy Wolf steel case again. It's a mental thing.

    And then, many guns DO NOT like steel case in general. Some actually advise against it. I tried using steel case in my M1 Carbine and it hated it, using brass it fires like a dream.

    Advice, if you're going to get steel case... Try TulAmmo. I think they do something when packaging it in those Wolf boxes, lol. It just didn't work for me.

    It has always worked fine in my sks. I caution everyone one using it in a 9mm. I purchased a box for my keltec p11 for practice. When I tried to chamber the first round(and several others later), the slide would not close. I later checked the overall length of the cartridge and discovered that the wolf 9mm was longer than its American made counterpart. The tip of the bullet was actually going up into the rifling. Russian quality control is sometimes wanting. I have ran into this with other foreign made 9mm. It double feeds (or doesn't feed at all) through my M1 Carbine. I only use "Wolfie" in the sks now.
