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.
