Wolf Primers?

Im starting to get to the point where ordering online in bulk will be the way to go to save some money. I noticed wolf primers are substantially cheaper than CCI. Do any of you guys have any experience or opinions on these primers? Any input would be appreciated. I will mainly be loading 223 and 40/45 with them.

Ive been using CCI, No41 for 223, and normal small/large pistol for 40/45. Would I notice any difference switching?

I can't tell you if there will be any differences in performance as I don't do that kind of testing.

But I have used tens of thousands of Wolf primers, including the SRM for .223 loads, and LP for .45 ACP and .45 Colt.

They go bang everytime.

Thanks for the reply mac. Im in the same boat as you, and I mainly just load plinking ammo. I found a few other forums and it seems the general consensus is they usually work good. Guess its time to place a bulk order for some and give them a try.

$14/1k is amazing compared to the $33/1k Ive been paying for the CCI No41 primers.

I've run thousands of Wolf and Tulas (they both come from the same plant, I think), and they've been fine. About the same hardness as Winchesters in my experience.

I use lots of the small rifle magnum primers. No issues at all.

Whatever the primers are in my WPA .308 are hard as a rock or something. I can't get my rifle to fire those damned things on the first trigger pull for the life of me.

Usually when it takes a second strike or more it's a seating problem.

Well, what rifle, and can we assume you've tested it with other brands of ammo?

Thompson Center Venture .308

I've used Winchester, Prvi Partizan, Hornady, and Fiocchi to name a few. The WPA ammo I got from LuckyGunner just doesn't want to fire.

Sometimes it shoots the first time, mostly not though. I read that the primers are thicker to prevent a slam fire in military semi auto rifles.

Are Russian primers corresive?

I know they go bang but are Tula primers corresive? Thanks.

I bought years ago 5k of Wolf SR primers when everything was "out".
They worked just fine in my .223's.
I did not buy them anymore since Federal and Winchester came available again and I don't buy Russian or Chinese if I have the choice.

I believe Wolf is made by the same plant that made PMC primers. I had bought three sleeves of PMC shotgun primers a few years ago and thought they were great! They seemed to be consistent with Winchester primers. I wouldn't hesitate buying Wolf, or PMC primers, especially at the right price.

JMHO,

Steve

SWIMMER,

They are non-corrosvie.

Wolf/Tula primers are non-corrosive. PMC is a South Korean company and I don't think they get their primers from Tula.

Perhaps they changed ownership and locations over the years.

Here is a thread that once described them on Accurate Shooter:

Thanks. I'd never heard of that.
