Video Transcript:If you've heard of Wolf Performance Ammunition before, then you probably associate it with budget-priced, steel-cased pistol and rifle ammo from Russia. While that's usually the case, the Wolf label also includes some premium rimfire ammo, like this 22 long rifle target match load.
Unlike the Wolf center fire offerings, this 22 ammo is brass-cased and made in Germany. It features a plain lead round-nose bullet. And comes packaged in small boxes of 50 rounds each. The bulk pack contains 10 of these smaller boxes, for a total of 500 cartridges.
Most rimfire ammo uses some kind of protective lubricant on the bullet, usually a type of wax. Wolf Target Match, on the other hand, has a thin coat of some kind of oil on the bullet. This makes the ammo a little slippery and can make it slightly more difficult to load magazines, depending on how stiff the magazine's springs are.
But aside from this minor complaint, this ammo performed well above expectations. We fired a few hundred rounds through six different firearms, three pistols and three rifles. Reliability was exceptional, with no misfires, light primer strikes, or feeding and ejection failures in any of the test guns.
As impressive as the reliability was, the place this ammo really shines is in the accuracy department. We shot a 10-round group at 50 yards, using a Ruger 10/22 target rifle, on a bipod, with a fixed four power scope. With very little effort, we were able to get a group that measured just a hair over one inch.
For comparison, this is even better than the group we shot with the same rifle, using the respected CCI Mini-Mag ammo. There are plenty of less expensive .22 loads out there. But if accuracy is what you're going for, then this Wolf Target Match is one of the best factory rimfire loads available.

This ammo will shoot groups measuring .311center to center @ 50yds. I haven't had enough time or ammo, (until now) to really work it out but I expect even better groups, if I do my part.
It feeds reliably and I have had no failure to feed issues.
The great service and fast shipping are a great asset, this company really does seek to please its customers and I fully intend to check here first for future purchases. (Posted on 2/6/12)

- consistent and accurate Review by Fwank
This ammunition is actually manufactured by Lapua in their new German plant. Yes, Lapua, from Finland, that makes some of the very best target ammunition in the world. That Lapua. This is Lapua's .22 LR standard velocity solid round in Wolf brand packaging.
It's almost as good as the stuff Wolf sells as "Match Extra" (that's Lapua's .22 LR match ammo) but that's very hard to find in the US right now. (Posted on 5/7/11)
