That's a common experience with Wolf HP. And the softpoint loads aren't much better. The lead tip just breaks off or flattens without the bullet actually expanding.The Wolf hollow point seldom mushrooms from my experience. More often than not though it will somewhat tumble and flatten out. If close enough and the velocity is still high enough, I have found them to fragment quite reliably. I aquired a stock pile a while back and hoard them now as I cannot obtain them in Canada. Good SHTF ammo IMO.
Wolf Black Box.What exactly is the difference between the Wolf Black Box stuff and the Wolf Military Classic anyways?
I've always wondered that.
I've only shot the black box stuff.
So the black box has a higher velocity, and that's it?...and a 2gr diff?Wolf Black Box.

A few years ago I tested Wolf FMJ, HP and Military Classic HP in boxes of phone books at 25 yards.That's a common experience with Wolf HP. And the softpoint loads aren't much better. The lead tip just breaks off or flattens without the bullet actually expanding.
Their Military Classic HPs will fragment fairly reliably though. That's my preferred load. But some guns choke on HP, so it's always a good idea to put a LOT of them through the gun before you trust your life to them, just to make absolutely sure that they are reliable in that particular gun.
My first and last case of Wolf BB was bought about 10 years ago when it was like $100 per K shipped,it didn't have any sealant around the bullet. It shot ok but wasn't anything special.So the black box has a higher velocity, and that's it?...and a 2gr diff?
My black box rounds all have red sealant round the bullet/case connection and the primer too.
Is one any more accurate than the other, or about the same?
