    military classic is 95gr fmj and black box is 100gr. I like sportsmansguide and use one of their $10 off coupons when I buy a case! BTW I carry the black box in my mak in winter!

    i've always heard wolf ammo is cheap and doesnt feed reliably, true?

    is it decent for practice?

    I use Wolf a lot. It works well but it smells and is a little dirty, residue-wise. Other than that, it's been fine. Well, at least for me....

    my mak is 100% reliable with wolf fmj. I have only had 2 ftf's in ~2500 rounds and both of those were with silver bear JHP's. I polished the feed ramp and fired the rest of the case w/o another problem.

    IMO Barnaul is better than Wolf

    I use the FMJ in winter because of where I live...Western NY state. Lots of heavy coats (carharts) and "hoodies" make penetration a problem with some JHP. I use JHP the rest of the year!

    I find the silver bear to be VERY dirty...but it was ~$150 for the case when I bought it last summer. Truthfully, I like wolf black box the best and may just use that all the time in the future.

    Moyock North Carolina but i go to VA a lot also.
    I used wolf once and would never do it again. Go to Wal-Mart and pick up some winchester ammo. If they don't have your kind of ammo go to cheaper than dirt or cabellas and order it. Sellier and Bellot is also a good kind of ammo i like to use.

    I haven't had any problems with Wolf so far. I either 9mm nor 223.

    Hollow points aren't stopped by clothing. Even heavy clothing, all that happens is they plug (if it even does) and becomes a FMJ anyway. I would carry only a good bonded JHP.
