    Got your interest? ;) I have just received 720 rounds of Wolf .223 ammo. Free,my brother gave it to me. Do I sell it,or buy a cheap .223 rifle to shoot it up with? Or give it away and hope for manifold blessings in return? :p

    Might not shoot out of some rifles. Wolf won't shoot out of my brothers AR.

    If you buy a rifle and it doesn't shoot wolf, then sell the rifle.

    Especially an AR...I wouldn't own one if it didn't reliably shoot wolf, even though I don't really ever shoot wolf since it isn't all that accurate and it is dirty.

    Then he needs a different AR. No offense.

    Buy a .223 rifle.
    Shoot a few rounds from said rifle.
    Realize that .223 just doesn't do it for you.
    Give ammo AND rifle to Mr. White in hopes of all kinds of good juju to come your way.

    Give it to me and I'll pay the shipping. My AR loves Wolf.:)

    Or you could be selfish and buy yourself a cheap Romanian AK of a Saiga and have some fun.

    Give it to me, my Remington 7615 loves wolf.

    Karma will return the favor.

    I've traded ammo with my LGS. Is this an option for you?

    get a saiga in 223. less than 300 and it will definitely eat and spit wolf. classicarms.us has wasr-3 for under 400.

    An NEF Handi-Rifle is around $225, and it would take a while to shoot up all that Wolf that way. Mine likes Wolf just fine, though as Bazooka Joe 71 said, it's not all that accurate and it is dirty.

    My Handi-Rifle is the only one I have that does not like Wolf. It won’t eject. I have to beat the case out with a cleaning rod. I assumed that was because the Handi-Rifle is a 223 rather than a 5.56. It could just be my rifle.

    Unless I was in need of money, I would buy a rifle to go with the ammo. My AR shoots it fine, and so do plenty of other rifles, so I wouldn't be to worried about reliability.

    Trade it to blkbrd666 for 720 rounds of .220 long rifle...it's lighter and easier to move around. :)

    720 rounds of .223 would not be enough for me to justify a gun solely for that free ammo. If I was going to buy a .223 rifle anyway, 720 rounds may be enough to convince me to pull the lever sooner.

    While some may joke about give it away free, it is what I truly do. When I have ods and ends ammo, I give it to family or friends.

    Hey...that's how the ammo came to you! :D Buy a rifle and use it, or give it away (pay it forward).

    I'm forming shooting activities for young boys and teens without fathers, or fathers in jail. PM sent. Would appreciate if you'd read it.
    Thanks
