I have always defended Wolff ammo. I have never had a problem with the stuff, and I figured those who did just did not clean their stinking guns enough. I seen two guys I know shooting their ARs that had a fired cartridge case stick in the chamber, both of them happening on the same day! I attributed it to the fact these two young guys like to make their ARs sound like M16s, and I also did not figure they were as particular about cleaning as I am. Well, I reckon it had to happen, the same thing happened to me today! Took the old AR out, shot 60 rounds of it at a leasurely pace, no rapid fire stuff. Put the gun down and shot 200 rounds through my 10/22 and MK2. Went back to the AR, fired two rounds, and blam, the second cartridge stuck in the chamber. That was the end of ole Tim's shooting for today! When I got back to the house a cleaning rod knocked it right out, but this would have more than sucked if it would have been a self defense/combat type situation! This is the new polymer coated Wolff stuff. By the way, this was the very first time my AR has had a stoppage of any kind, and it dang sure is ammo related, not the gun! I only bought a small stockpile of Wolff ammo to supplement my reloaded ammo, but I rekon I will stick with my reloads from now on!

i've wondered about that steel case stuff-------use to be laquor finished and then up-graded to plastic finished. I don't mind shooting it thru the sks but never will in the m-16..........

wolf 45 will never touch my p-90...........

ain't the 22 LR stuff made in Belgium?

Sounds like your home rolled cartridges are the way to go. Can the 7.62x39mm be loaded on the Lee press that I have? Or are the cases too long?

Yep you should be able to load it on you press.

no problem for the Lee press-----unless we are talking steel case ammo/berdan primed then it's a problem for just about any and all presses.......

the wolf amo is inexpensive-----and with the strength and tolerances of the sks-----it probably was designed to shoot this steel case ammo without problems from the get-go........

The ar-15's...? i don't think they had envisioned steel case ammo fired thru them when it was designed.

is there really a big difference in steel case vs brass case ammo? Honestly i don't know but i ain't gonna find out with my rugers. i do have faith in the sks to handle it.......but it was designed to....

So that's one more reason to buy and SKS. :)

I just found another...the AK is over a pound heavier than the SKS..I only handled one SKS about 8 years ago, and I've never held an AK...if the conversion to hi-cap mags worked flawlessly, that'd be the one to go with.....

The only good thing I have heard about Wolff ammo is their .22lr stuff......never heard anything good about their centerfire ammo......
Wolf doesn't make their 22lr - Last I saw/read it was made by Laupa. And yes it's good stuff. I'll still buy USofA whenever possible.

Sheepdog, I don't know where you got that info from. I have owned both, and the AK felt lighter to me than the SKS. Looks like the SKS would be heavier as it has a full length wood stock and the AK has a two piece. Besides, even it that is true, you could always buy a polymer stock for the AK and lighten it up a bit. I just really prefer the AK to the SKS all the way around.
