Wolf 5.45x39 55gr Soft Point Ballistics Gel Test Results





Just finished up testing the Wolf 55gr 5.45x39 soft point round from my Iron Clad Armory AK-74 variant. The test was shot at 15 ft, 58 degrees, and 300 ft of elevation and the Clear Ballistics "FBI spec" (their term, not mine) gel block.

Results:

-2742fps, 917 ft/lbs energy
-The round expanded pretty well
-Penetration 14.25''

Here's the video of the test:

I've tried 6x and each time it's tumbled out of the block. I'll get it one of these days.....
