Also, you can have a 1200 buck gun, and still be a cheap (quality) gun. Wasn't referring so much to price as quality control. My DI guns only have about 700 bucks worth of parts in them each, but I have no problem shooting Wolf. But your point is well taken. Money doesn't always equal quality. Carbon 15's were pretty expensive when they first came out, but the one's I saw were pretty finniky about the ammo they shot.

Just putting it out there.

I have recently fired a Noveske barreled SBR (12.5" if I remember correctly) that functioned great w/ XM193 but the owner relayed that it didn't function well on Tula. Though I believe a lighter buffer would do the trick it brought to light that there are exceptions to all rules. I still believe that a quality AR will run anything but SR15's have been reported to not run well on low powered ammo as well as the SBR I fired recently. Obviously these are quality ARs so again there are exceptions to the rule.

Why, what does it do? What weight buffer do you run?

Tap Rack Bang if you still have trouble try different ammo until you break in your new toy

W/ a round stuck in the chamber? This isn't a magazine problem so what would tapping the magazine cure? Rack, do you recommend jamming another round behind the one that is already stuck? Maybe read the thread before posting.

Idk the buffer weight, but the wolf ammo will not feed all the way into my weapon. Also, it won't eject w/o assistance from a hammer to the charging handle. It is the only ammo that does this. Tullammo feeds just find.

Wolf is just cheap p.o.s. ammo that everybody needs to stay away from. Imo

I didn't smack the crap out of it, I just needed some leverage. The bolt carrier was back to far to take out the pin and break it over.

If the bolt will unlock you can put a military cleaning rod down the bore and give it a tap. Might save you from beating on the charging handle.
