    Can you read the rest of the thread and post your thoughts now?

    What happened to Killick’s posts? I love when idiots post and then bounce when data is present.

    My point is simply that inexpensive range ammo is not to be used if one is looking for great results at 100 yards. I do regret this hurts anyone's feelings.

    Euro, what does your 12.5” BA barrel do with known good quality 75-77 gr. match ammo? Also, is it the Gov profile or their Hanson series?

    I had a 12.5” gov profile version that wouldn’t shoot my 77 gr. OTM handloads or factory Hornady 75 gr. OTM under 2.5”. I tested it back to back with a chopped down Noveske CL 11.5” and was just under 1” with the same ammo.

    Has anyone ran this head to head with regular wolf steel cased? I wonder if steel cases would be about the same.

    It’s their gov profile. It will shoot about 1.25” with 69gr. It didn’t like my 77gr TMK handloads.

    Oddly, my 12.5” Noveske SS don’t shoot 77gr TMK handloads well either. But they’re 0.3 MOA in my 20” Krueger

    Thanks Euro.

    That’s interesting about the SS Noveske not liking your 77gr handloads. I had a 16” SS Noveske that shot the same handloads I referenced above pretty consistently into 3/4” 5 shot groups (MarkM’s load - 21.8gr H322, Wolf SRM, & 77gr Nosler CC)

    For what it's worth, I think the Wolf brass cases are out of spec.

    I picked up a couple dozen once fired from the ground at the range. I didn't make any measurements, but most of them didn't want to size down properly at the head and wouldn't fit into the case gauge.

    Also, on every one, the new primer (CCI # 41) refused to seat down to the proper depth.

    I threw them all out and won't use them again.

    That sounds like a chamber issue with whatever gun fired them. I've loaded WOLF Gold brass with no sizing issue. The do have a stout crimp and primer pocket which is nice if you want to run a hot load. That said, I've never used them for precision or anything. Mostly 62 gr HP target loads. So I've never checked the brass for accuracy/consistency.

    I was just getting ready to ask could that be the chamber of the rifle they were fired from.

    Bold: So doesn't that go away when you reload them? How do you keep the crimp?
