    From your interesting testing. If you had too grab one of your tested ammo.
    Not necessarily for plinking. But for pure reliability. Which brand would you count on.
    What brand would you guys want in a life or death situation?

    Based solely on the testing I did, I would use the Wolf Military Classic or maybe Silver Bear.

    Thumbs up

    Thank you. Yes j4 pulled some bullets and did weight testing.
    Wolf and Silver Bear seem too go bang all the time.
    Now my buddy sits here and says the 62 grain?? is more accurate over longer distances than the 55 grain.
    Living down here in the swamps I cant test it, so I dont really know?
    Very few places here you can even see anything past a hundred yards.

    i would get golden bear, silver bear would be my second pick as the plating can pit on the silver bear and cause some nasty sticking in the chamber.

    though i can't say the wolf branded ammo wouldn't do the job. i would go with the golden bear --simply cause i have shot lots more of it--


    silver bear is fine if it hasn't set on a shelf and let corrode for years--LOL i got some very old silver bear that i have to clean up before it is used.

    You should try some Golden Tiger. It runs about the same price, but it's hotter than normal Russian.

    Oh yes. We had a thread going awhile back on the Golden Tiger in use with the shorties.
    It turned into a flame thrower test. Somebody posted a picture of Golden Tiger being shot at night out of a shorty. Looked like the space shuttle going off.

    I got 1,000 rnds in .223 and 1,000 rnds in 7.62x39. Followed a thread here-Wideners maybe?

    hum, i have shot a bunch of GT 7.62x39 didn't notice it being very "hot" at all.

    in fact it even short stroked a couple times. that big flame you see jumping out of the barrel is incomplete combustion that equates to lower pressure and lower muzzle velocity.



    with the shortie barrels i would go with a little bit more weight in the lead like a 63gr.

    you should see all the shit i had to do to the xm-177 replica to get it to run the under powered 55gr--LOL!
