Details

This 5.56x45 ammunition from Wolf’s Gold label has steel in all the right places!

Notably for Wolf, this ammo features 100 percent brass cases. The cases will expand to seal the chamber during ignition, return to their original dimensions for smoother extraction from a semi-auto, and remain durable enough for handloading. You can even see where these rounds’ new production cases were heat-treated for greater suppleness.

Each round’s 62 grain bullet has a gilding metal jacket for assured smooth feeding from a magazine. The front of the bullet’s core is made of steel – hence the green paint on its tip. The M855 is designed to penetrate barriers as resilient as sheet metal, but it also has a habit of twisting and breaking apart as it penetrates soft tissue. This enables the M855 to create a wider wound channel without expanding, or even two individual wound channels.

This isn’t military surplus. It was manufactured for Wolf recently in Taiwan, so it has modern and non-corrosive primers. A good fit for any AR-15, and best fired from a 1:9 or 1:8 twist barrel.

A: Thanks for reaching out Tom! It's definitely 5.56 – Wolf Gold cartridges are often headstamped incorrectly because they use the same brass to make both loads.
