Wolf is consistantly on sale at the local Dunham's for $5.29 per 20. Either FMJ or HP. That works out to $264.50/1000. The local Wal-Marts have been carrying Tulammo for $4.98 per box. My understanding is it is in the same class as the Wolf ammo.

I have shot thousands of round of Wolf ammo out of my AR, AK and other rifles. Never had a problem with any of them

Question I have a new mini 14 and it fires 5.56 flawlessly and hornady ammo perfect. I bought 1000 rounds of herter's ammo at cabelas its made In Russia 55grain fmj Tula ammo. It shoots striaght but only works the action like 1 out of 10 rounds. Like not enough kick just reloads the empty case. Have you ever had that problem? Any suggestions. Turns out same thing with wolf ammo too.

My Mini eats the stuff like candy. Is it a new Mini?

I just bought 1000 rds of PMC for $400, best deal I found in AK. Except for Russian stuff which I have had issues with in the past, therefor a non-starter.
