I won't buy from them, even at .01 per round.

I haven't bought from them since they priced gouged back in 08. But they are one of the few that has ammo in stock now. And people will spend the money in times like these, sadly.

Go on gunbroker, the gouging is outrageous but throw a bid on a small lot and you may get lucky. 223& 556 could go for anywhere from $7.00 box of 20 to $23.00 box of 20 BEFORE the events before Christmas now its anyones guess. My advice and this is just my opinion is dont by wolf look for Remington, Fed LC, Fed American Eagle or PMC. Again JMO

I'll still use Wolf, but I don't trust my rifle to digest it now.

Granted, this was the likely result of build-up from non-cleaning, but after roughly 1,000 rds, I started getting stuck cases.
The rim would just get ripped off and the case needed to be BEATEN out.

Put a round of brass in, and no problem. Stick more Wolf back in and BAM! (round fires) Jam.

Last time I was at the range I loaded a mag with 20 rds of brass on the top, followed by 10 rounds of Wolf and they all fired without issue.
Fine wile at the range, but I don't trust it to not hiccup if my life is depending on it.

Emptymag it looks like you found the solution if you do your research you will see there is nothing wrong with steel ammo

OK. I watched the video. It didn't tell me anything regarding what happened to my rifle (other than needing to clean it - which I still haven't done), or give me any clue as to what solution you say I found.


Huh

There is tons of 223/556 on gunbroker right now but you're gonna pay through the nose for it. Same goes for 9mm. Prices are about double what they should be, you're looking at $600 or more for a case of xm193.
