:?:

I am interested in purchasing a Kel-tec SU-16 but have a few questions. I have reviewed the other items here, but am still a little confused.

Ammunition? Does the Wolf 223 ammo function properly in the su? I have seen reviews of other brands, but no wolf.
I am planning on using this rifle for target shooting only, so, I would be looking for cheaper ammo?

Magazines? what brands of magazines will function in the su? the information link stated Orlite, but I have seen 2 different versions of the orlite, one that will fit a bushmaster, and one that won't? will bushmaster mag's function?

included? how many magazines are included w/ the su? I haven't been able to determine that,

I realize that the mag question has been reviewed, but I don't want to buy the wrong mags.

thanks in advance for everyone's input and help

Since I just got my SU-16 I can answer one of your questions. It comes with two 10 round magazines.

I'm sure others will answer the rest of your questions.

Yep, Orlite mags are good 'cause they match the "look" of the SU, but aluminum GI mags are best.
Wolf ammo is steel-cased, and dirty. Couple that with the fact the SU bore isn't chrome-lined, and you'll have premature wear and a lot of unecessary gas system cleaning.
Use almost ANY other brand, in fact.

40 round Whinchester value pack from walmart for 5.30 or so are a good deal and run very nicely in my SU. Also, PMC runs well if you get a deal on that too.
