Man,this stuff is so "inexpensive" and being steel case,seems like it would be safer in the unsupported case of Glock Factory barrels....Any users? (Before I buy 1000 rnds)

Never used in my Glocks, but my AR can eat it all day long.

I've had no trouble with various flavors of steel-case 9mm in any gun I've shot it in.

I've had nothing but headaches with steel-case .223.
Sticks in the chamber and rips the rim.

Not a problem on my G26 and G19, go for it!
Would you please share your source for ammo!
Thank you.

You buy this at WalMart? I have bought Federal 100 round pack at Walmart for under $20 but now it seems like they never have it in stock.

Add another to the list of satisfied users. My G19, 17 and 26 fire with no trouble. NOT excessively dirty and even seems a tiny bit hotter.

+1 for me. In the G26 and the G17. No problems, would use again.

Box O Truth did a test on Wolf 9mm and found it to be one of the, if not the, most accurate cheap target ammo they tested. You won't have any problems with it in your Glock and it will save you some money unless you're a reloader. Go for it.

I went to buy some of this but Walmart was out; instead bought TulAmmo Russia Made 9mm 115 grain for under $10/box at Walmart. Shot it in my G19 and Kahr CM9 and it was 100% in both. Seemed to have good power for 115 grain.

As everyone said, any quality gun will have no issues. If you use it long term (thousands and thousands of rounds) it can speed up extractor wear but we're talking about a LOT of use.

Another benefit is I've always found Wolf to be a little hotter than normal plinking fodder so it recoils closer to a carry load.

Only issue I've had in shooting it through my various guns is that it's very dirty ammo. Need to clean your gun a little more often.

I did have one failed round in my G19. Sounded like a pop pop (fire cracker) and just smoked. When I ejected it it appeared that it "exploded" but not enough to even make the bullet leave the case.

It's all I ever shot opinion my ak47.

Wolf is dirty, no doubt but I don't find it to be all that much dirtier than other target ammo (WWB, UMC). I do have to say the powder has a pungent odor when burnt.

are the steel cases reloadable?

Not at all!

Not at all!

So the ranges are littered with them?

They do money on that, they sell the steel to recycle!

The old Wolf military classic 9mm is definitely hotter than normal plinking ammo. I like it too. The new Tula stuff feel a lot like regualar Federal Bulk ammo or something though.

Yes, I have run steel cased 9mm in my G26, G19 and G17. It runs fine but is VERY dirty.

i wonder why they are so dirty? The propellant? The steel casings?

I am 99% sure it is the propellant.

I guess that the manufacturer is not too concerned about how dirty the ammo is.

My 34 will clover leaf the Tula/Wolf with iron sights.

Wolf 9mm is all that I have put through my G17 and not a hiccup to this point

The G17 has been my only Glock since 1989!

Same here- albeit since around '92.... I'd like a 19 at some point ;)

As a side light to the 9mm/AK 47 -7.62x39 Wolf ammo. I bought 500 rounds of Wolf .45 ACP ammo for a combat training course back in 2006. We went through the majority of the ammo, and I might have had one or two failure to fire out of over 300+ rounds fired that day -if there was that- through a standard Glock 30. The course involved high rates of fire, multiple mag changes, and no cleaning the pistols till the course was finished. The ammo was dead on at all pistol ranges and fed like clockwork. I will use Wolf ammo anytime, and keep a store on hand always. The .45ACP shoots just a little hot -like Wolf's 9mm- and is a trifle dirty, but for that kind or reliability and cost? Not a problem. With the legendary stopping power of .45ACP ball ammo, I don't worry about using it for survival situations either.
