Is Wolf WPA 7.62×39 ammo dirty?
I see this type of comment frequently on the gun forums. Fact or Fiction?
Let’s see if there is any proof by shooting some Wolf WPA 7.62×39 ammo.
Here is the WPA Military Classic 7.62×39 Russian/Ukraine ammo in question.

Fired Wolf 7.62×39 cases.
Well? Does it look dirty after firing? I think not. It’s actually cleaner than some American ammo. There is no carbon or powder residue on the case neck. It’s very clean.

Looks pretty clean to me. My Zastava NPAP was pretty clean too. I shot 100 rounds of various Russian/Ukraine 7.62×39 ammo through it with 100% reliability and little fouling. The fouling on the gas piston was easy to wipe off. I cleaned the barrel with a boresnake and Froglube CLP. 15 minutes of cleaning and it’s good to go.

All of the carbon fouling wiped right off with a cloth and CLP. No scrubbing with a wire brush.
