I have a upper RRA 223/5.56 and a DMPS lower. Just bought 1000 rds of Wolf ammo. Has any body have any problems with this ammo??:?:

Upgrade your extractor tension with the "D-ring". It is a rubber ring that goes around the extractor. With the wolf, there is more build up a gunk that after a while can start acting as an adhesive on the cases in the chamber. I have the D-ring and have shot about 100 rounds of wolf with absolutely no problems.
FWIW it's not the lacquer thats the main issue most people encounter. My Bushmaster XM15 had similar FTE problems with wolf. The gun functioned perfectly, it's the steel case thats the problem. The extractor would rip part of the back of the case/rim off leaving the case still in the weapon. Only solution was a cleaning rod down the barrel and a hammer/mallet to pound it out. Each time was due to a steel case sitting in the hot chamber. Steel expands more slowly than brass (one reason why steel cased ammo appears 'dirtier') and when it does, it doesn't have brasses malleability properties so it just 'sticks'. Be it lacquer, polymer or zinc coated... doesn't matter. First time firing wolf thru it or you're 1,000th.You'll probly have plenty people here say it's fine. My bro used it in his Bushmaster and had a bunch of FTE's. One thing everyone will agree with though is clean your gun thoroughly. The laqour coating that preserves the wolf ammo is no good for any gun and likes to stick to everything.
I have two RRA's and all I shoot in them for pratice is Wolf. I have never had one problem with it. Not saying it can't happen, but mine seem to like it. It is more accurate then I would have ever thought for cheap ammo. Last time we were at the range I shot a 1/2 inch five round group at 100 yards. Not too bad for basic FMJ ammo. I would like to see what it would do with some Match ammo. Only problem I have with the Wolf is it seems to make the gun more dirty then other ammo.
Thats crazy I didn't think you could do that, is there any thing special to it or do you reload like brass?Not only should Wolf not give you any problems, but I reload the steel cases! No problems yet, and the necks usually get splits in them before anything bad happens, so I throw those out at the first sign of neck splits.
