Sorry if this has been discussed- no luck find info on RFC or elsewhere online.

I just received an order of Wolf Match Extra from a distributor in NC; according to the box, it was made in England by Eley, and in fact, case heads are stamped with an E, the box is plastic with an Eley-like sliding top and the lot number format is the same as Eley.

Everything I've read indicated that WMT, WME, SK Standard Plus and SK Rifle Match are made in the same facility, on the same line, by Lapua in Germany. I entered the lot number of the WME in the Eley lot analyzer- lot not found.

Has anyone compared the Lapua and Eley versions?

It seems as though after doing an advance search here on RFC and adding "1 year and older" to the search pattern that SK production of Wolf and American sales of both Wolf and SK must have begun better than 13 years ago.

One site on the web has Wolf starting in 2005 although I'm thinking another saying Wolf started in 1996 is likely more accurate.
I don't know when it started but I shot Wolf in 2004.
