I'm sure this is a newb question, but what is the difference between Wolf Military classic and Wolf Black Box?

newer black box wolf cases are polymer coated, mil classic is lacquer coated. I would never shoot the lacquer coated stuff out of my guns. the poly coated is a bit better.

you forgot to put Silver Bear, Brown Bear, Golden Bear and Barnaul in your list.

out of all the cheap russian ammo, I like Silver Bear (nickel plated steel cases), and nickel plated Barnaul. No lacquer or poly to clean out of the chamber, and no fear of melting the lacquer or poly from rapid fire.

All three will work fine. Get whatever is cheaper. Mark

What he said. If it's a derivative of an AK: whatever is cheap and goes boom is good.

The only difference I see is Mil-Spec sealant around case mouth for classic and boxer primer in some calibers for black box stuff - http://www.wolfammo.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=77&Itemid=116
The classic box looks cooler...

I believe military classic is Mil-spec stuff while black box is commercial. I've never had a single problem with lacquer gumming up any of my guns.

The Mil. Classic has issues with the primers being set too deep in the case . I've had 7 out of 10 rounds FTF. Hard primer strikes but no bang,and it's not the gun because the black box goes everytime.

I had two or three FTF with my Russian SKS it shot the other ammo fine and the older Wolf I have. My friend told me their quality control is down on the ammo now because they make it 24/7 now.

mil classic is usually a little cheaper. whatever i can get for $5 a box or less. it is, after all, an ak.

Is any of that non-magnetic? Angeles Ranges has a "nothing that sticks to a magnet" rule. When you shoot steel targets with a steel core bullet it showers sparks everywhere which is a big fire hazard in that area.

you need either fiocchi or some other yugo ammo that comes in 40rd boxes in stripper clips. ableammo has good shipping prices.

all steel. the brass cased yugo stuff is around, a little pricey. supposed to be the best ak ammo (like it matters).
