Link and I have not yet seen a review and tested this ammo myself and it is Buyer beware.Where can I sign up to see when it comes in stock? I'd like to buy a ton of this stuff if it's that cheap or close to it.
I am being cautious my previous post. But both of my 7.62x39 ARs seem to do well with once I used the proper firing pin. In 5.56 the topic of steel case has been beat to death. Seems important to keep you chamber clean with it, especially before going back to brass cases. Can not say more on the 300 blackout steel until I try some.Some guns do not like steel cased ammo. Ymmv.

Response:Hi Chris, this is not accurate data as this is a brand new SKU for Wolf 300 Blackout Ammo. As soon as we get all the information and correct ballistics, we will update the description. Thank you for your patience.
Yup. Not that I advocate running steel, but not running it points to deeper underlying problems.If your gun won't run steel, that's a problem. Just my opinion. I'd be looking for a different gun.

For your combat loads buy quality brass cased ammo loaded to nato specs. If you use the steel for practice, do a detailed strip and clean on a regular basis and clean the gas tube since in the above testing it did get obstructed with some steel case ammo use.If you regularly shoot steel cased ammunition, it might be a good idea to replace your extractor along with your barrel, or at 5000 rounds, whichever comes first. Replacement extractors are not very expensive. Changing the extractor spring at the same time doesn’t require more work – just set aside the old extractor and spring assembly and install the new one after popping the new spring into place in the new extractor.
You should replace average OEM extractor springs beginning at 2,500 rounds and no later than 5,000. Better extractor springs will not require such frequent replacement with any ammunition – the Colt “Gold” extractor springs used in each rifle starting at 5,000 rounds were still providing reliable extraction at the 10,000 round mark, and would not have required replacement after 5,000 rounds.
Which Ammo To Buy
If Federal Brass Cased Ammo Performed So Great, Why Bother Buying Steel Cased Ammo?
The performance of the carbine firing Federal ammunition in this test was undoubtedly impressive. We fired approximately 412 pounds of ammunition with very minimal maintenance in austere conditions without a single malfunction. The fact that the rifle remained serviceable and combat accurate from the first shot to the last – could hardly be improved upon. To many who read this report, this is all the justification they need to purchase this type of ammo.
Is Brass or Steel Cased Ammo More Cost Effective?
Although ammunition prices are volatile, the prices of brass and steel remain similar to one another. That is, brass is generally more expensive than steel. We created a chart comparing the cost over time of each type, including ammunition and spare parts replacement costs.
The difference in price between brass and steel cased ammo (more specifically, copper jacketed and bimetal jacketed) means that you’ll have plenty of savings with which to buy new barrels – even if you shoot so fast that you replace them every 4,000 rounds. For this chart, we calculated brass ammunition at $130 per thousand higher than steel and replacement barrels at $250 apiece.
