Default wolf .308

I meant Wolf - can't change title of the thread...

Does anybody knows if it is loaded to .308 or 7.62NATO?
Anybody shot it? How did it go?

IT sucks, Ive got about 1200 rds of the crap.

Its WAY under loaded. Out of a 21" FAL barrel I was getting 2420-ish velocity out of it. Should be closer to 2800fps.

Very dirty, very low powered and EXTREMELY dangerous. I would NOT shoot wolf in anything you care about blowing up.

Ive had over 10 rounds blow the primers out the back, once it locked my gun up solid.

Ive also seen RSSSLVRs FAL blow the magazine out the receiver when the case head on the WOLF he was shooting seperated....


WOLF is bad news, especially in .308.


I only use it in 762x25 and 9x18 now.

I'm sure you would...

Wolf has already agreed to replace/exchange it. I just haven't sent it back cuz Im still finding pieces of ammo here and there in storage, lol.

Either way, I wouldn't sell it to someone cuz it WILL blow your gun up.

I'm not a pu55y by any means and I will shoot just about anything, but I will NOT shoot this stuff anymore, its a handgrenade lookin for a good gun to destroy.

The 7.5x55 Swiss is good, almost groups like the GP11 stuff. I reloaded 40 and the brass good; it's Prvi Partizan ammo in a Wolf box.

The Wolf Gold .308 SP is OK. Dirty, a little bit underpowered, but inexpensive.

There was nothing wrong with my gun,it was the wolf ammo.Wolf knew about the problems with the .308 and offered to pay for the repairs to my FAL right away.

Do a search on ar15.com for more info.
The ammo forums over there are extensive.
Most reports on the Wolf .308 are negative though.

I think Wolf rifle ammo is pretty much only good in AKs, SKSs and other such firearms. A friend of mine just got a Mini-30 and it would not fire most of the rounds. The primers were barely dimpled, they are too hard. My SKS ate them up just fine.
