Wolf Ammo 7.62x54R Extra Match

    Wolf Ammo announced a new 7.62x54R cartridge for 2011.  The new load is called Extra Match, and Wolf claims it is “one of the most accurate 7.62x54R rounds in the world.”

    The load uses a 200 gr FMJ bullet with a muzzle velocity of 2435 fps.  The case is brass, and is promoted as “reloadable.”  However, the primers are Berdan primers.  If you reload in the United States, make sure you have a source of Berdan primers, as the Boxer primers are incompatible.
