223 Rem – 55 Grain FMJ – Wolf WPA Polyformance – 1000 Rounds (20.0¢ per round)

Steel is an extremely useful metal. You an use it to make motorcycles, barbecues, forks, and even ugly modern architecture. (Call us uncouth, but we think Frank Gehry buildings look like used tissue boxes. He won’t be designing the next Lucky Gunner headquarters.) The best use of steel, however, is arguably for casings — it is incredibly inexpensive when compared to brass, which is why this 223 Rem ammo by Wolf is perfect for endless target practice.

This round’s casing is coated in PolyFormance, a polymer that promotes smoother feeding and extraction in any platform of firearm. Note that this round is Berdan primed, which in conjunction with its steel casing makes it totally unworthy of reuse for handloading. This round’s 55 grain projectile, which is full metal jacketed, is essentially the standard weight for its caliber. The Russian-made cartridge will perform exactly as you are accustomed to at the range!

223 Rem – 55 Grain FMJ – Wolf Performance – 1000 Rounds (18.9¢ per round)

Steel cased ammo has got its drawbacks, but it owes its great abundance to one very big advantage that it has over brass: its price tag. If you’d like to stow a massive quantity of cartridges somewhere or are planning the mother of all range sessions, that awesome low cost is sure to put a smile on your face.

Wolf manufactures an astounding amount of steel cased ammo, and they do it in Russia which has a long-standing tradition of producing the stuff. This 223 Rem cartridge’s casing does have a thin layer of PolyFormance polymer that works to address steel’s reputation for not extracting as reliably as brass, and it protects the round from corrosion as well. This round’s 55 grain full metal jacket projectile is just like what you’re probably most used to firing out of an AR, but note that the layer under the copper jacket may contain steel that will attract a magnet.

223 Rem – 55 Grain Copper FMJ – Wolf Polyformance – 500 Rounds (23.0¢ per round)

This 500-round bulk case of .223 ammo will keep your AR well-fed while keeping your pockets heavy! Wolf is a U.S. company that specializes in imports from Eastern nations like Russia and Europe that are built to meet American sporting needs. These particular cartridges are assembled using non-reloadable steel casings which help to lower costs to the end user. Each case is polymer-coated for rust resistance and reduced extractor wear. A non-corrosive Berdan primer can be found at the casing’s base while a 55-grain copper full metal jacket (FMJ) bullet is crimped in at the head.

55 grains is a standard weight to both .223 Remington and 5.56mm NATO calibers and boasts light recoil, flat flight path, and simple zeroing. Wolf uses copper as a jacketing material in this load as opposed to their usual bi-metal offering. As a result, these rounds leave behind less heavy metal residue and are less likely to produce sparks when glancing bullet traps or striking steel targets.
