I just use brake cleaner on the gas tube, bcg, and barrel chamber, then some remington gun lube on bcg and call it a day. Wolf shoots the same in my gun as brass with regard to reliability. Some guns are a bit finnicky about what ammo they will shoot. My guess is it is the upper receiver or bcg.

Don't use this or other penetrating lubes. If you get a little on a case it can penetrate into the powder, then there can be problems.

OP, what do you mean by jam? I skimmed through the thread and didn't see any real explanation. I'm guessing the round got stuck, correct?

My thought is: you can have a super cheap gun, or fire super cheap ammo. Try both and you won't be happy with the results.

Just my opinion but a PSA is low in the price spectrum but offers good quality. Cheap isn't always a precursor of quality.

You really, really, really won't be happy with a super expensive gun that won't fire cheap ammo either!

Yes mj the round got stuck. So I went and got brass instead of the steel and it shot fine. I just went out to try the wolf and it jammed on first shot. When I get shell out there a chip on the top of the casing from where the extractor tried to grab it and it wouldn't come out
