Read this we are not discussing the 15-22. A warning from 2017 by Wolf Gold. From what I am gathering there was a problem with the chamber, or head spacing with the M&P15's at what time? I don't have an M&P15 of any flavor. I have a friend that has a 2015-16 Sporter I.

* Advisory Warning - June 8, 2017 *
WOLF Performance Ammunition has received notifications relating to Smith & Wesson M&P-15 rifles that are discharging out of battery which is evidenced by a lack of damage to the chamber and barrel extension. This shows that the rifle’s bolt did not lock into the barrel, yet the hammer was still able to strike the firing pin to detonate the cartridge and cause a failure.

These failures can cause major damage to the firearm and bodily injury. As a result, WOLF Ammunition does NOT recommend using our ammunition with any Smith and Wesson M&P-15 rifles until this issue is resolved. Moving forward, WOLF’s 100% Performance Guarantee will not cover any damages associated with Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifle or rifle created failures exhibiting the above described characteristics.

It had to do with Wolf's warranty. Not their ammo. They were going to pay damages to a weapon that wasn't properly made. I am thinking there was probably problems with other brands of ammo. They just didn't have the warranty Wolf Gold did.
