  • Opinions on Russian Wolf Ammo

    I've been reading some mixed reviews on the Russian Wolf Ammo, primarily the 5.56/.223 rounds. Seems some folks don't have any issues with it where others have, mainly due to the anti-corrosive material gumming up the chamber. I reckon to prevent such gumming up would be to simply clean the weapon after every shoot.

    I would appreciate anyone's insight/experience with this brand of ammo.

    Thanks in advance...

    I wouldn't touch the stuff with a 10' pole. And it will never be fired through my Colt... unless it was the last ammo on Earth and we were in the fight of our lives.

    Terrible stuff. Extremely dirty. Very corrosive. And the cost savings over real ammo doesn't even touch the increased wear & tear on your gun, nor the headaches with cleaning up after it.

    YMMV

      It's fine...

      Been shooting Wolf ammo for years. It's dirty and does require a good cleaning afterwards. But it's cheap and fun to shoot. Not the most accurate ammo either.
      If you want to go out and make alot of noise and have fun shooting w/out spending alot of $ it's just fine.
      Never had a problem with any of it. I've shot the 7.62, .223, and .40 cal's w/out any issues.

            dirty? yes. corrosive? no. i have shot a lot of this stuff through my AR with no issues. its not the most accurate stuff in the world, and if you can live with that, then you will have no issues.

              Appreciate the opinions & experience, Fellas. I picked up 100 rds from a buddy and figured in using it only to sight in my scope & iron sights...then that would be the end of the Wolf ammo.

              Thanks again...

                I have used the Wolf .223. It is not accurate enough to use to critically sight in your scope and sights. It is for plinking only and then clean the rifle well as it is dirty.

                  dirty wolf

                  I've tried Wolf shotgun shells...as nearly everyone has mentioned...they're very dirty. Not well sealed at all either--I wonder if they'd even shoot if they got wet. I wouldn't use them unless that's all I had available. I'd stick with the big 3--Federal,Remington,or Winchester.

                    Most of the Wolf can't be reloaded either due to the steel case. One reason I tend to shy away from these rounds unless it's all I can get my hands on.

                          Ive used several hundred rounds of Wolf 45 acp over the last couple of years. It all worked OK with no misfires or other problems. It's a bit dirty as others have said but you got to clean the gun regardless of what your shooting. So it's really no extra work after a fun shooting session. Accuracy was actually pretty good.

                              I shoot it through my SKS basically because its great to plink with and its cheap. If I had a $1000 AR I wouldn't use it. But my SKS all bubba'd up is like $300 bucks total. It can take a beating!
