    Went out last weekend and tried some of the Wolf "Gold" that I got from ammoman. The Bushmaster loved it, no hickups at all after a couple of hundred rounds. I'ts on my buy again list.

    I shot some 62gr and 75gr PPU (Wolf Gold) using a 16" AR with a 1/9 twist barrel. POA is the black X, I did not adjust the rifle (which was zeroed for 55gr ammo) before shooting these groups at 50 yards. Grid is 1". BSW

    AT 75 yards it can break clay piegons all day with no problem. To me that's plenty accurate. that's out of the 16" bbl.

    Wolf's brass cased ammo is made by Prvi Partizan. They make good ammo, especially for the money.

    I have shot thousands of rounds of it and continue to buy thousands more...

    If those grid line really are 1" spacing and these shot at 50 yards, these groups won't have me paying extra for the Gold over the cheap Wolf.

    briansmithwins,
    Your rifle seems to like the heavier stuff better. What kind is it and do you know the twist rate? Thanks for posting the groups.

    What did you pay, the Wolf seems more expensive than the PRVI I currently shoot?

    about .35/rd shipping included. I know the steel cased stuff is cheaper but I need to try a small batch of it before I order a bunch.

    Ditto, Prvi is the same stuff, for less money. Wolf Gold is just remarketing of it.

    Does the price from Aim Surplus include shipping?

    No, it doesn't.
