Add another option to the poll: "whatever's cheapest"

And I'll pick that one. :)

I've never known any ammo to be so dirty that would cause me to clean my Romy G.

But then again, I clean my AKs with mud and a stick. :D

+100

I've heard people say that Barnaul and Golden Tiger are better than Wolf, but Wolf has always been cheaper and it works just fine.

I've got to try that when when it gets shipped. Hopefully that is soon!

So if you could find Golden Tiger and Wolf at the same price you would pick the Tiger?

Yes, but if Wolf or another brand that is non corrosive is cheaper, I get that.:)

Since we can't shoot bi-metal projectiles at outdoor ranges here in SoCal I chose "other". I roll my own for about 17 cents each. By far the cheapest solution, if you have the time and equipment.

Hondady LNL AP + components + 1.5 hours = 500 Rounds

I would buy whatever is cheapest! But if they were all the same price I would pick Wolf military classic, I don't know why but thats what I would buy.

Yeah, I was just about to say...

Buying a good reloading press is the best investment you can make as a gun owner besides owning a good safe. You get ammo as cheap or cheaper than that steel case crap, and its more accurate and cleaner too.

I found Golden Tiger to be more consistent than Wolf but if you want to blow up fruit the wolf military classic hp are gold.

Whatever my upper can handle. So far, Wolf performance and military classic feeds fine in my model 1 sales upper. I get minute of watermelon accuracy at 100 yards.

The only 223 ammo I have had a problem with was olympic
I measured them and 1 out of 3 were out of spec

ANY.
It's a worthless distinction given the ballistics of the cartridge and the rifles that shoot it.

I buy what I have to, to have non-steel to shoot outdoors.
I buy what I have to, to have reloadable brass.
I buy what I have to, to get some tasty hollowpoints.
I buy what I have to, to have several hundred rounds of SHTF ammo.

Odd man out here, I roll my own using 150g NBT, Speer SP, Core-Lokt or of late, my own cast 150g FP. 23.5g H4198 for @ 2100 fps.

2" all day long @ 100 yards with a Mini 30 .308 bore 189 series.
