    Curious to see what factory ammunition other Finnwolf owners have had success with in their rifles. If you don't mind please include the brand of ammunition, bullet type, and weight. Thank you in advance!

    Hmm! Crickets! To be honest, anything that will chamber may have to do for a while. The local Academy had Federal Whitetail 150 gr spitzer soft points that would at least chamber. I'd attempted to make ammo for mine with components at hand and Hornady Interlock 180s had to be seated even with the end of the parallel sides to even chamber. If OAL goes over 2.65, mine won't eject a loaded round. There appears to be almost no throat either. Guess that's fine as long as there's factory ammo.

    I appreciate your response. I've got some Hornady 150 gr SST Superformance that I want to try and see if it will chamber and shoot well through it.
