    Mark cringes every time I run shit ball powder in my nice rifles.

    Testing all the lots is a good idea, be cool to narrow it down to 1 or 2 lots.

    Lot 2017-9 is looking good.

    I got to the range today and tested 7 batches of mine (one was DocSherm’s he let me have) I used a BA 12.5” with a Poortex 1-6 optic shot from the setup below



    I did consider using my Krieger but in hindsight it doesn’t really matter how well or poorly it shoots in that. This ammo will never see a Krieger in real life.

    Batches were shot in round robin format (I knew the WG investors would complain if I didn’t) it looks like the 2014 batches shoot pretty consistently. There are some outliers 2016-16 shoots very well, and the 2017 and 2018 batches shoot very poorly. I’d like to get more 17&18 batches and test them to see if as time has gone on their ammo has gotten worse. The POI shift in both is pretty terrible, and would be in keeping with the theme of this thread. Recent batches are not very good.

    Are those 5-shot groups at 100yds? If so, then you're right: They're terrible.


    I'm overseas and can't check my stockpile, but I record what ammo I have in Excel (yes, I was potty-trained too young), and I'm glad to see that I haven't bought any Wolf since 2016.

    Luck or intuition: I thought I had enough Wolf, so I switched to buying PMP, MagTech, and HornadyFrontier then.

    Yes. Should have noted that. They are 5 round groups at 100y

    Still waiting for the “It’s not precision ammo I’m gonna keep using it” replies...

    Your 2018-3 POI shift is extreme. At 300 yds. you'd be lucky to catch a "D" zone without optic correction.
    That is disappointing.

    I have 5 unopened cases in my gun room, so here's your; "I'm gonna keep using it" comment.

    A couple years ago was last I remember checking the WG for groups, your 2014-3/2016-16 groups are what I've seen from my guns.
    I will remember to verify zero with this stuff next time I'm out.

    I will add that my use of this ammo has been 90% 50 yds. and in, anything past 100 yds. I've used different ammo for a couple years.
    I wouldn't have noticed a major degradation of precision with the WG ammo, but would have assumed it was operator error.
    You have me questioning now. I will check on it next range trip.
