I realise that every ones experience is different. However I have not had any problems with WWB .223 ammo in any of my AR's... I shoot it when I can get it and after 3 or 4 thousand rounds of the israeli WWB I have had exactly zero problems.manygunner said:WARNING *** WARNING *** WARNING
DO NOT USE THAT STUFF IN A SEMI-AUTO!!!! I had bought some earlier in the year and almost blew my AR apart. They do not crimp the bullet properly and as it fed into my rifle the bullet was forced almost all the way into the case. I was lucky it ended up as a failure to feed jam. I shudder to think what would have happened if it fed and I pulled the trigger. I would not trust WWB .223 in any semi auto from that experience, it may be ok for boltguns though.
I dont know about calling it "quality" ammo. I would say it works.. Quality ammo is Federal, Winshester, Remington, Speer, Hornady, etc..OK, your gun, I am just reporting what happend to me.
Overkill, yes, Wolf is quality. I have had less problems with Wolf then with any other brand. The 20 year shelf life is just icing on the cake. I am considering Barnaul silver or golden bear in the future though.
I bought all the local Wal mart had to offer! (10 boxes)WARHEAD'Z said:For those of you who shoot AR..... After 8 months with an "out of stock" status at Wal-Mart .223 WWB has made its way back in stock again. It is still priced at $7.73 for the 40 round value pack. New loads in bright shiny brass. Made in Israel.
That might be their excuse. Some ranges won't let you shoot it because they can't turn around and sell the brass. They might have invented that story just so they wouldn't have to argue with customers. Do they allow Blazer aluminum ammo at that range? If not, it's not because of damageHrdluck13 said:I shoot at three ranges her in CA. None of them allow Wolf ammo because of guns being damaged due to Wolf ammo.
Sorry to hear of your bad experience. The ammuntion we are talking about is not actually made by Winchester. It was made in Israel. Where was your ammuntion made and what variety was it?[TASF said:Maverick]I too had a wal-mart bullet fall apart inside my rifle. It failed to feed into my rifle and ended up falling apart in my hand when I got it out. Never buying Winchester rifle ammunition again. Which by the way, is very shocking to me.
Wolf gives me failures to fire once every 500 rounds. I have never had any other bullet fail on me. I use brown bear as much as Wolf, never had a problem with it.
P.S. This is all about a 7.62x39 round.

I've got 1000rds of it stashed away in the even the SHTF.
Was it going into an AK or another commie variant? Those rifles are better off to use steel casings.[TASF said:Maverick]I did not keep the box. I still have the bullet, it simply reads 7.62x39 WINCHESTER around the primer.
