    This just came through my email.

    Wolf 7.62x39 Poly 122grn FMJ 20rd Box

    Yes it's Wolf. But maybe with prices dropping, better deals can be had on that sweet M70 Yugo stuff ;)

    BTW, I've dealt with AIM once or twice. No problems.

    AIM is my favorite place. One of the good things about their web site is that they usually take the link off the page when the item is out-of-stock. That saves a lot of endless drill-down to the link you want - only to find there's none left.

    They also have reasonable prices. Never once did I see them price-gouge when ammo/accessories/etc were in short supply. They're also pretty helpful on the phone, but I recommend not tying a salesman up for too long.

    Yes I like AIM too. Have had excellent service from them in the past years. Wish they'd get some of the 7.62x39 Wolf Military Classic in. My Romy G eats it right up. The black box Wolf is a lot less fun to clean up after. Not sure if the powder is different or if it's just the lacquer build-up that accounts for the mess.

    I also wish Wolf would make some 5.45x39 Military Classic! The old 70's military surplus leaves some of the hardest carbon build-up I've ever experienced! It's practically diamond hard.

    These are not lacquer but "polymer". Is that just what they're calling lacquer these days or is it a different compound?

    It is way different. Polymer is a non problem where lacquer would melt then re-solidify where you don't need it. Dunno what happens to the polymer when you pull the trigger, but I've shot off a few thousand with no problems, not even one.

    In what type of rifle?
    None of these has given me a problem in my AK, but a friend is a manufacturer of high end ARs and will void your warranty if you use lacquer.

    ARs and 1911.. No surprise you have a warning about the lacquer.

    Yep the old military surplus lacquered stuff is a pain. The Military Classic and black box are now all polymer coated. The polymer coat expands into the chamber space when subjected to the heat and pressure of the fired round. Much nicer. It then contracts quickly with no transfer of materials. Lacquer, on the other hand, liquefies and leaves deposits in the chamber.

    Sorry. In my original post I actually meant to mention the lacquer issue comes up with the 'old' Wolf which was lacquer coated like the military surplus. Bad edit. Also I'm not sure if the 'new' poly coated black box uses different powder than the Military Classic. For some reason it just doesn't clean up as easily. Hence my preference for the MC.

    AR's and 1911's are built around much tighter tolerances than the Soviet surplus. Some people report that they shoot their AR's for hours with the old lacquered Wolf with no problems. If I had an AR based rifle I would certainly try it just to see. I'd also run the MC through it with no reservations. But AR's aren't how I roll. :p

    I've been buying stuff from AIM for over 10 years. They are GOOD FOLKS.
