Have run about 500 rounds of this ammo before with little or no problems. Once in a while a hit is maybe an inch off at 100 yards but overall it is a tight grouping. Will buy again. (Posted on 4/1/13)

I bought 500 rounds of the WPA 223 last month and I just tried it out along with my brand new C93 and they both worked flwawlessly! No FTF or FTE no double feeds Nothing but bullseye after bullseye. I already shot 300 of my 500 so as soon as they have some more in stock I will be ordering more and filling up those 40 round clips!!!
Thank you Bulk Ammo you guys no already how much I like your site and you have a great service to the American Gun Owners!! (Posted on 11/19/12)

Great ammo. I only buy Wolf for bulk orders and have never had a single misfire or dud. Since its a bit cheaper and steel casing I clean my gun thoroughly after shooting but I don't think that's an issue since its a good habit to get into no matter the ammo. First time dealing with bulkammo and shipping was quick and easy. (Posted on 7/21/12)

I bought 500 rounds of wolf ammo and was very disappointed in its "performance". It was very inaccurate. You could feel the difference in the powder charges by the recoil in an AR-15. Even through the buffer. It would not group inside of a pie plate at 100 yards and the mess that the carbon left in my gun was ridiculous. I have fired thousands of rounds through an M-16 and an M-60 when I was in the military and never saw this much fowling. And the most that I shot at one time was about 100 rounds. I sold the ammo at a very reduced price and was glad to recoup at least a portion of my loss. It is just a hair better than nothing. (Posted on 7/21/12)

I've only put about 60 rounds through my spikes tactical AR but it shoots great so far. My only complaint is that the steel cases are lighter than brass so they eject further back. I'm a left handed shooter and I caught a casing down my jacket. Keep your gun clean and you'll have no problems with this ammo. (Posted on 3/7/12)

Ok y'all, Bubba put the rest of this ammo through his CLEAN mini-14.
Not one FTF or jam. This was the second time I shot this rifle, and as the poster below points out, clean is important. I bought this mini-14 used, and it was very clean. However after my first trip out, I field stripped and found the gas port was filthy. I believe this was the issue I had with not loading properly (which I posted below about). This ammo is cheap, reliable and accurate, most of all its noncorrosive! Bubba says go on this ammo. (Posted on 2/26/12)

I've shot thousands of these round through colts and now stag arms. I have never had a misfire or a jam. Gentlemen, lets face it keep you gun clean .....including your gas port and use a good clip, load your clip correctly and you won't have issues. This is the best value ammo on the market. Happy shooting (Posted on 2/18/12)

500 + rounds through a Ruger SR-556E without a single problem. Piston system so the dirt isn't a problem at all. It is not as accurate as some of the higher priced stuff but does an inch group at 100 with these prices really matter? Besides I have 29 follow up shots to hit the gopher or coyote if the first misses. (Posted on 2/7/12)

I bought a 500 round case and have shot 350 rounds so far. Not one FTF.

Pro's:

-comes in 20 round boxes, unlike most gun show bulk boxes. Easy to store/transport that way.
-accurate: was able to hit soda cans at 75-100 yards no problem out of a mini 14 with iron sights.
-cheap, that's why your here right?
-non corrosive

Cons
-rounds have a slight powdery dust on them when taken out of the 20 round boxes.
-My mini14 seems to have issues loading these, but the gun was very dirty; this was probably more the guns issue than the round, but the powdery dust might have added to the issue. Not a fair assessment on my part.

Overall opinion: I would buy this ammo again. No failures to fire at all.

After cleaning my mini 14, I found that wiping each shell down with a gun rag not only cleaned the dust off, but slightly lubricated the steel shells, and allowed a flawless chamber round after round. I believe steel shells can be harder to chamber than brass, as steel does not seem to have the same slippery affect brass has. However, the wipe down with a gun cloth seemed to give the steel round the extra slippery texture it needed to compete with the brass. Now, there might be no need to wipe the rounds down, as my gun may have chambered them with no issue after the good cleaning. I prefer to take the time to wipe them down and reflect on the shots I had made form the precious magazine.

I will continue to purchase this ammo.

Out of 400 rounds I have not had 1 jam or misfire. I'm shooting a keltec su-16ca. At 100 yards I was shooting about 1.5" groups with a couple of bullseyes. The only thing is that they are a little dirtier to the inside of your gun than other ammo. But with a little elbow grease and solvent that's just a minor problem. I'd buy again (Posted on 12/31/11)

shot 200 rnds in my 16inch dpms in 1 day. Slow fire at 50 yards with red dot makes a nice baseball size pattern. During rapid fire i found 1 split case after 90 rnds. The powder is dirty you need to clean your rifle good. Did not have 1 FTF!!! (Posted on 12/20/11)

These jam a lot, even in a clean colt. They don't feed through the mags very well also. Some of the cases even split which causes further jams. This would be good ammo for a bolt action varmit rifle that shoots one at a time.................... You get what you pay for. (Posted on 11/28/11)

No problems with any of these rounds. I have a Rock River AR. I have no ideea how many steel cased rounds I have fired thru it with zero FTL and zero FTF. As Hugasi said I have more trigger time with these low priced rounds. I was shooting out the center of the bull's eye at 100 yrds. I don't know...these rounds may be dirtier than others but I don't lose any performance after a day at the range and I clean my gun after each trip out so what's the difference?

Bulkammo processed my order right away. They sent me a couple of follow up e-mails to make sure I was happy with the order. I sent them an e-mail and actually got a reply e-mail from a human. No standard computer-generated reply.The price is right and the company has great customer service. This means a lot to me and it means I will be a repeat customer. (Posted on 10/8/11)

I shot 450 rounds of these ammo through my Sig 556 with no jams. Could not use it on AR15 as it jams on the second mag. The ammo is not the problem, its the rifle being used. If you are using an AR15/M16/M4 or something similar with a cheap ass barrel, then you will have all kinds of problems as these type of rifles are not meant to use steel casing. Sucks! im sticking to buying real rifles from now on! (Posted on 7/23/11)

I heard some bad things about this ammo, but the value made me take a chance on wolf. To my relief it performed very well. I fired 400 rounds through a new mini 14 and had 3 or 4 FTF. For me that is acceptable reliability for that price. It allows me to have much more trigger time than I would have otherwise.
I heard about Bulkammo on the survivalpodcast and was not disappointed, fast shipping, and they followed up with several emails to make sure I was satisfied with my order. I will not hesitate to order from Bulkammo in the future. Thanks. (Posted on 7/10/11)

Q: How does Wolf or Tula compare to PMC in velocity and consistency?

Posted On: 10/22/11 By: Todd

A: PMC .223 is loaded hotter and is a little more consistent than Wolf or Tula, but overall their performance (accuracy/effective range) is comparable.
Q: Does the twist of the rifling in a 223 barrel affect performance differently for different grain weight bullets? If I'm shooting a 1:9 twist, what is the best weight bullet to use for accuracy?

Posted On: 10/22/11 By: Matt

A: Yes - think of it as a quarterback throwing a football. The longer bullets must be spun faster to stabilize at long distance, where velocities drop greatly in comparison to the muzzle velocity. A 1/9 twist rifle chambered in .223 should be very accurate out to 600 yards with ammo up to 73 grains. You should try some Federal Gold Medal Match 69gr HPBT if you are looking for really accurate ammo.
Q: Do you have 223 or 556 tracer rounds?

Posted On: 10/7/11 By: Kent

A: No, we do not have tracer rounds.
Q: Are the primers to this ammo corrosive?

Posted On: 10/4/11 By: Alex

A: No, this is not corrosive ammunition.
Q: Is Wolf a reliable round? A lot of ranges ban it, so I am concerned there is something wrong with this type of ammo. I will use it on my own property, so I don't care about a range banning it, but I want to be sure it will perform reliably when I NEED it to.

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: Diego

A: Some ranges ban steel cased or bimetal jacket ammo for various reasons, mostly related to misplaced fears about damage to target stands or backers - in general, a bullet in the wrong place will damage anything. If you are looking for practice, training, or plinking ammo, this would be a good choice. For defensive ammo, you should consider ammunition such as Federal Gold Medal Match, Hornady Match or TAP/TAP FPD, Federal Fusion, or Fiocchi HPBT.
Q: I have heard some people say the steel-cased ammo can cause damage to the extractors on AR-15s. Is this a valid concern, or an overblown worry?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Eric

A: This is an overblown worry. A member of our staff has fired tens of thousands of steel cased rounds through AR-15s without breaking a single extractor.
Q: Is it true that using wolf ammo for practice will make my gun more dirty faster?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Jeff

A: Wolf ammo does cause slightly more carbon buildup than other types of ammo - but so does shooting more in general, and you're getting more ammo per dollar with Wolf.
Q: I have been told steel casings will increase chamber wear. I use Bushmasters with chrome lined chambers. Will this be a problem for me?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Tim

A: No, you will shoot out the barrel (excessive throat wear from intense heat and pressure) before you will cause noticeable wear to the chamber from shooting steel cased ammo.
