Wolf Gold is a great name for this great 5.56x45 ammunition, though. Many shooters will recognize Wolf’s name as synonymous with steel cased magnetic ammo, but their Gold label stands for exactly the opposite. Not only does this rifle round’s brass case grant cleaner performance and the option to handload afterward, but its steel-free bullet is acceptable at indoor ranges!
This 5.56x45 round sports a 55 grain FMJ. Loaded to a muzzle velocity of 3,250 fps, its recoil, point of aim, and ballistic performance will probably remind veteran shooters of the U.S. Military’s M193 ball cartridge. This is the bread and butter AR-15 cartridge, optimal for target practice and plinking when terminal expansion doesn’t matter all that much.
This round’s Boxer primer makes handloading even more accessible, and it is non-corrosive to save the inside of a rifle from rust. Its consistent muzzle velocity is provided courtesy of its consistently loaded propellant, which is also clean burning!
