If this guy is selling at $159 a case and still make a profit. But we are paying on average $189-199 from huge distributors, I guess it means we are getting screwed. :eek:

Or he payed $89 per K for it no more than three or so years ago and is just trying to get as much of his money back out of it as fast as he can at said show.

I was at the range the other week shooting my LMT M4 using Wolf Military Classic .223s. One of the workers there said "That ammo (meaning all metal cases) will destroy your extractor/bolt etc....

Because it's metal against metal (brass being softer so denting before any damage to extracter ect...)


So now I'm a bit paranoid shooting metal casing ammo through my top of the line M4. Should I be?

I also use Wolf in both my AK47 and 74. Do you guys see an issue here with ammo using metal for its casings?


Thanks

The steel is a soft steel, if it effects your extractor, you probably had a bad extractor anyway.

On the other hand, the money you save shooting wolf will buy multiple extractors if it does fail.
