Re: wolf primers

I was tempted during the primer drought to buy some Wolf primers but had enough to hold me over until others became more available, so I have no personal experience with them. I have heard, however, from some who did start using them that they burn a little cool. "They" also suggested using a magnum primer in place of where you would normally use a standard primer. All you can do is give them a chance and see what your own personal results are. Or just send them to me and I will use them and write you a review. HEE HEE

Re: wolf primers

I've read where a lot of guys are having good results with them. However, I personally have no experience with them.

Re: wolf primers

A year ago when CCI's were hard to get, I bought 4K Wolf small magnum primers for competition guns. I have shot them only in the .223 and 6mmBR, and I like them. No misfires, and my ES seems a bit better. They are about .0005" larger in diameter than other primers and a tad more effort is required to seat them.

Re: wolf primers

I picked up 1000 Wolf small rifle primers several months ago and tried them for the first time today in a 204. Well so far i'm not to impressed. One of the first 5 rounds failed to fire.

Re: wolf primers

I have shot quite a few wolf primers and they seem to have harder or thicker cups than most.

Re: wolf primers

They're good. One thing the Russian's have always done very well, is primers. They produce some of the most accurate 22 rimfire ammo in the world, bar none, and a lot of their success comes from the priming mix they use. When Federal created their Gold Medal Match stuff some years back, they tried very hard to duplicate the Russian priming compound and production methods, including the dimple on the case head. They got close, but the original russian ammo was incredibly tough stuff to match, much less beat. Same sort of expertise carried over into their centerfire primer production.

If it makes you feel any better, I just picked up 30K of them from Grafs yesterday, to be used in my Service Rifles for NM competition.
