Ammo Overview

Bullet Type – 55gr FMJ
Quantity - 500 Rounds
Manufacturer - Wolf
Origin - Russia
Casing - Berdan-primed steel


This Wolf ammunition is a cost-effective alternative ideally suited for high volume AR-15 shooting. Each .223 Remington cartridge in this bulk priced case fires a 55 grain bimetal jacketed bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,130 feet per second. Each case contains 25 boxes of 20 rounds each for a total of 500 cartridges.

Wolf ammunition is loaded in Russia using non-corrosive Berdan primers and steel cases with a lacquer coating that resists rust in storage. The steel cases are not reloadable and have magnetic properties which may make them unsuitable for some indoor ranges; check before ordering if unsure.

NOTE: Wolf Performance Ammunition does NOT recommend using this product with any Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifles. See http://wolfammo.com/advisory.html for more information.

A: Hi John! The Mini-14 is actually a little less finnicky about running steel cased ammo than an AR-15. While some shooters disparage Wolf's casings for leaving behind more residue, the Russian company's newer polymer coating is heat-resistant to prevent melting off in the chamber. Most shooters report satisfactory results when running steel cased ammo through their Mini-14 rifles. Some malfunctions may occur, but these may be attributable to the rifle and not the ammo. That said, you'll still want to clean your rifle a little more thoroughly after firing steel, because the casing doesn't expand to seal the chamber as effectively as brass could have, resulting in significantly more carbon fouling of the chamber.

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.

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.

A: No, we do not have tracer rounds.

A: No, this is not corrosive ammunition.

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.

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.

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.

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.
