Wolf ammunition has been imported to the United States for a long time, and over the years, their ammo seems to have polarized a lot of shooters in the United States. The newer offerings from Wolf are quite a bit different than the ammo that was brought in years ago, and deserves serious consideration.
The ammo I tried for this review was a 55gr soft point load for .223 Remington. Although people normally associate soft points with hunting, 55 grain soft points in 223 are generally not all that spectacular when it comes to terminal ballistics. They would be a better choice than full metal jacket ammo, though.
The core of the bullet is lead and it's surrounded by a bimetal jacket, which is made of steel and copper. This jacket will attract a magnet, so you should check with your local range to see if it's allowed there. However, the jacket is soft enough that it won't harm the barrel of your rifle.
Wolf's Military Classic ammo is loaded in polymer coated steel cases. They aren't reloadable, but the polymer coating will help prevent them from rusting, and it has a high temperature resistance, so it won't build up inside the chamber of your rifle.
I shot this ammo in a number of different semi-auto and bolt action rifles, and had no problems. It was also decently accurate, about what you would expect for inexpensive ammo. Really, though, I was impressed that it cycled all of the AR-15s, even the ones that were set up to shoot hot 5.56 loads.
Overall, I thought that this Wolf 223 ammo was pretty impressive, especially for the price. If you aren't a reloader and just need some good range ammo, I would definitely recommend taking a look at Wolf.
Product as good as promised in review.

Decent ammo at a good price.

Ammo shot well in a Rock River AR. Held good groups on a windy day for a light round. Only reason I gave it a 4 on quality was for the steel case, but I knew that going in. The price difference more than made up for the steel case.
