What is Wolf Gold Ammo?

We bought some 55g Wolf Gold ammo for some of our tac rifles. But it got me thinking: Does “Gold” mean match?

Since I fire Wolf 55g steel in this gun, why not put the Gold to test and find out?

The answer: It’s 55g military ball ammo. It’s not trash ammo. But it definitely is bulk ammo. 

Sure, I ring steel with it on the rifle range, but it’s not the go-to loading for the 223 Blaser barrel.  I actually haven’t really tried find a match load for this configuration yet. I’m using the 5.56 setup as a cheap plinker / position shooting rig. 


Rifle: Blaser Tactical 2 5.56 barrel. 

Scope: S&B PMII 3-12

Ammo: 55g Wolf Gold.

Range: 100 yard. 

Position: Prone supported. 

Target: 8.5 x 11” sheet of paper. 

Disclosure: It is likely that a higher-powered optic would have enabled me to tighten these groups up some. Incase you don’t know, the trick for shooting “bug-holes” at 100 yards is a great trigger while looking through the Hubble Space Telescope. 

At least for my eyes.
