I have bought Herters brand from Cabelas for $233 for 1,000 rounds. Have shot about 600 rounds so far with only failure to fire. They give you a choice of HP or FMJ. TheyA're steel cases with a coating, but I can't reload them that cheap!

Since a lot of Wolf ammo is loaded at the Tula factory I figured he may have excluded it as well.

Aimsurplus has Wolf in stock. But then again like mentioned before it'll wear your rifle prematurely and get it really dirty. We all know a dirty AR will not function properly. :eek:

I almost always run steel cased ammo in my rifles. I have not experienced any but I believe a ftf now and again would be a welcome addition to the training, how can you practice malfunction clearing with out having one pop up. yes you can use snap caps but then you know its going to be there and are prepared for it.

The majority of failures during the classes I have taken are from reloaded rounds loaded by "professional" reloaders. There's a reason most don't allow it.

Mike, I never had a problem with Wolf. My ARs can go through it all day long without a hiccup. Some rifles are picky eaters, but I stay away from them.If I had a rifle that woulnt shoot steel, I would repair it, because it is broke. As far as getting dirty, I just spray some solvent on a few key parts after the barrel quits glowing, replace the gas rings, (unless it is on my piston gun), and call it a day. I don't baby my guns, and they work just fine. That was the case when I could afford the ammo to have fun. Now 50 rounds or so, and I am out. Can't afford to shoot as much. Bummer. Oh crap, I just realized you were being sarcstic :rolleyes: Damn, now I feel like an idiot.:eek:

AMMOMAN - 223/556

Great products, great service.

If your AR won't shoot Wolf, get another stick! It runs fine in my Colt, I may be crazy, but I'm NOT stupid!

I shoot WPA and can get it locally for ~$120.00 per 500. Never had an issue with it at all!
