I saw some 'Golden Tiger' on a few web sites for real cheap, maybe too cheap. Is this stuff any good? It sounds like a wolf knock-off which can never be a good thing.... but maybe worth a try.


thanks,

It's decent stuff...built by Vympel IIRC. They recently lost their contract with the Russian Army, not sure why.

My SKS ate it up with no issues, but I only shot about 60 rounds. Buy it if it is really cheap, but in the future stick with Brown/Silver/Golden Bear for all your cheap ammo needs, that stuff is high quality and low price.

The AK folks love it, but I had several problems with pierced primers using it in an SKS. The primer debris damaged a bolt enough to require replacement.

It's good ammo. It has lacquered cases which are better than Wolf's polymer coated cases, IMO. Wolf cases rust too easily. Over on Arfcom a member sectioned a GT bullet and there's an air pocket under the tip. That should enhance tumbling and fragmentation after it impacts.

I have shot both wolf and golden tiger and both seem about the same. I have heard the golden tiger is cleaner than wolf but in my AK who cares how clean it is. I have not had problems with anything I feed my AK.

My Saiga delivers MUCH better accuracy with Golden Tiger than with Wolf. Wolf gives me 4.5" groups at 100, while Golden Tiger does 2".

Shoots better then Wolf with my experience using four SKSs.

Accurate, and functions fine in my small sample of AK's.

I've only shot about 300 rounds of it, but they've all fired just fine through my SKS.
