Who said Wolf ammo sucks?

ETA: I was slacking on target 1.
 
Good shooting....what kind of gun and what distance were you shooting?

I've always had good satisfaction shooting Wolf ammo in all the calibers I use. I've found that their .45acp is as accurate or better than other FMJ at twice the price.

Just as an FYI, I have had serious FTF issues with Wolf pistol ammo - 9mm in 3 different handguns (both new and old technology cases) plus .45 in my S&W 1911. None of these guns have any feeding problems with brass cased ammo of any brand.

On the other hand I've fired thousands of .223 Wolf rounds with absolutely no problem in my two military chambered ARs and a good friends' two ARs.

So obviously "YMMV" is the rule of the day with Wolf steel-cased ammo.

True enough. All of my guns have mil spec chambers except for revolvers and my hunting rifles which I only use brass cased hunting ammo in so I've not had any issues with feeding Wolf or other steel cased stuff. If your guns will digest it, its decent plinking ammo for the price.
 
That's an NRA Smallbore Rifle 50 yard target, shot at 50 yards.

Rifle: Anschutz 1411

Sights:

Rear: REG E5D with Gehmann adjustable iris, usually set around 1.3 to 1.5 mm.
Front: Anschutz with a 3.2 mm aperture.

Position: Prone. Sling and shooting coat for support.

Ammo: Wolf Match Extra 22LR.

Wolf rimfire ammo is world class stuff made for them by SK-Jagd in Germany. SK happens to be part of the Nammo-Oy group of Finland, which also owns Lapua, Vihtavuori, and Norma. Wolf rimfire match ammo is loaded with Vihtavuori powder and primer, is brass cased, and I would take it to the NRA National Smallbore Prone championships. It shares nothing in common with the Russian-sourced Wolf except the name.

Wolf .22lr is not made at the Russian plant, like most of their other ammo. It is made in Germany and I believe it is a different manufacturer.

For those wondering where Wolf rimfire ammo comes from.
 
Or that aweful bukakke stuff they put on the bullets!

Oh, you mean the wax? Rimfire match ammo has a little more of it than the usual plinker grade stuff, as it is designed for single shot bolt actions like mine. Sometimes it doesn't run well in semi auto plinkers.

I don't know what it was, it was black and slightly tacky. I was trying different brands to see what my Model 60 would feed (I don't call her the "Ammo Princess" for nuttin')

Well that stuff wasn't it. I got a MASSIVE blister clearing feed-jams on EVERY shot [laugh]

Well I found stuff that works really well...and is cheap too!

Ya the CCI SV is what I shoot now for Bullseye and for everything else, the HV did real fuuny things out of my other 22's, and the CCI Target ammo was way to pricey anyway ($65).
