Muzzle velocity from 16″ barrell falls in the parameter >3000fps. Non-magnetic. So, maybe so.
Mediocre accuracy. YMMV.June 25, 2017 at 12:55 pm #45864MaxKeymaster
I’m not concerned for classes at the VTC if this ammo is around 3000fps. So long as it is not M855 or some varient of 193, it is cool. The main reason for the restrcitions is for mobile classes where we get close to steel.
So buy the cheap stuff. Mediocre accuracy? Who cares at CTT ranges?June 25, 2017 at 8:20 pm #45872Mike HParticipant
I’ve used this stuff in two classes now folded in my mix and it feeds fine in my rifles. I pick it up at wally world 14 bucks per 50 rds when in stock.

Wolf Gold is often the most affordable brass cased, non hardened projectile, ammunition I find.June 26, 2017 at 10:44 pm #45904ffhounddogParticipant
Just an fyi in 16 inch guns Wolf gold .223 is faster than PMC XP193. At least in a Troy mid length LwRCi m6a1 14.5 inch, and a Colt 6920. Kind of why I’ve been stocking it up. Loaded up 110 mags with this stuff before I left for my wife to hold off the Zombies.
Support Side. Not flattering but better than weak side.June 27, 2017 at 7:17 pm #45926RoadkillParticipant
Just grabbed 2000rds of Wolf. Thanks for the heads up.
