A few months back I found a dealer running a special on Wolf 230gr ball, I ordered four cases for about $160 each with shipping. It functions fine and accuracy is "ok" but I have noted that it is fairly dirty/dusty, the muzzle flash is suprisingly low in comparsion to a few cases of CCI ball that I had. It functions fine out of my USC, USP, Glocks and my 1911's. As bargain priced ammo I think it is hard to beat. I've seen a case of 9mm for $75 recently.
FYI: I did notice that the cartridge cases are "oily" when you unwrap them, I believe it is some type of preservative.

Any good or bad feedback on Wolf Ammo?
I got some of the first to hit the shelves in Kentucky. It would not chamber in either my Kimber or a standard Colt MkIV. Perhaps they have changed it since the first few lots.

As an aside, steel cases seem to work OK in heavily tapered cases (9mm, .223 or 7.62 x 39) but steel has not traditionally worked in a slightly tapered case like the .45. Broken extractors were common with the old steel cased ammo produced at Evansville duriing WW II after the stuff got a little age on it. Perhaps the lacquer on the Russian ammo may help but I don't want steel cases in my 1911 or Glock (which chip extractors often anyway).

I really like the stuff in .223 but I have a Colt with an F.N. military upper that will not extract it (tight chamber) so I don't buy a hole lot... too bad the 62gr. JHP is a wonderful varmint round (perhaps not exceedingly accurate but adequate).

Food for thought,
Jim H.

Hmmm, thanks for your reply, Jim. Cheaper Than Dirt has their Wolf .45 on sale for about $50 a half case, so I bought 500 rounds just to see what it was like. Couldn't pass it up at that price.

I bought it to run through my new Kimber Royal. I'll post a report when I've had a chance to test drive it.

Glad I didn't buy two or three cases.
