How much does wolf ammo "vary"?
« on: November 14, 2010, 05:52:50 pm »
  Okay, I'm having another accuracy problem.   

No, they ain't ALL my fault but I'm starting to feel like Nightcrawler:


Mini-14: NO clue, it shot great, then shot terrible, now it shoots okay.  Acceptable.

1911:  Gunsmith *****d up the chamber/barrel/something.

FAL: Totally my fault, Improper firing grip.

AR15:  Ended up being a scope ring loose. 

Sig Sauer 226:  Cured itself after replacing the recoil spring.   Possibly me as well......

M14: Must do more testing but probably (hopefully) just low quality ammo.

Anywho....

My current problem is my AK:

  I finished off my last 500 round case a short while ago, had 150 rounds loaded in mags, so I group-shot it, then went through the remainder in practice, reload drills, long-short distance,etc.etc.     Shot great, just under 3".

   Well I felt like some benching, ago so I took it out:   Now it's going roughly 3.75", some groups up to 4.25", and roughly 3 out of ten rounds (five shot groups) fly off about 4" to the right or left of the group.....(At 100 yards).

    Ok, two problems:
  #1.  I could live with the increased group size.  Still good enough for an AK.  What bothers me is the fact that if it went from 3" to 4" now, how long until it goes from 4" to 5"?

  #2.  I can't figure out about the shots flying off right or left.     I can garuntee it isn't me as I had dad and borrowed another guy to shoot it and got identical results.    I removed the compensator and cleaning rod, no change in accuracy or flyer shots....

    So....I'm gonna say probably just an example of "quality" wolf ammo? 

After schtick like this it makes me wonder why I don't stick with bolt actions  ;D  I ain't a real paper puncher, but I like a gun doing it's best, and when my .223 Winchester'll punch half inch groups VS.....this  ::)

     I haven't.  I will from now on...

    However I have nagging thoughts it might be me or...I dunno.  I really don't think it is, but everyone says that. 

    As much as anything I'm getting paranoid and jumpy after the whole AR-180B incident *Shudders then runs off screaming at the thought*.

    Are we are talking an AK variant in 7.62X39, or 223?  If the latter, I've found Wolf ammo to be at best a 4"@100 regardless of platform situation.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    Wolf isn't bad ammo accuracy-wise.  It's about as accurate as any ammo you'll find in the same price range.

      7.62X39.

    No, I agree Wolf is pretty good ammo.  Passed on some generic Ulyanovsk and Tula even though "It's the same".....

     I'm just curious.  Seems like I have alot of luck attracting "off" guns.

     I gotta add my Mosin-Nagant to the list: 6-12" groups at 50 yards up and down...strings so friggin bad...I gotta try sanding the stock or something...
