    Anyone ever use Wolf ammunition, specifically for a 9mm?

    Wolf is Russian made ammo.
    A friend bought a case of 45ACP(he got a great price) and we shot a few hundred rounds at the range back in 2004. I didn't care for it at all. Also, my friends with ARs have nothing good to say about Wolf .223 either.

    Besides being very dirty it is not reliable in all guns. It is cheap... but you get what you pay for.

    Personally, I only use proven, reliable and well manufactured factory ammo for carry. Federal, Remington, Speer, Winchester, COR-BON, and Hornady make some really good ammo.

    Each mfg. makes practice ammo as well as personal protection ammo.
    There's a lot out there. Try several and use what you like.

    For competition and practice I uses reloads.

    My advice is, if the ammo is for personal protection, do not buy cheap. Get the best.

    Hope this helps?

    It helps. Thanks for the insight. I was looking to buy a case for target shooting, but I'll take a look at reloads.

    I buy wolf for my .223, seems to work pretty well at the range. Used to be $4.00 a box, now its 7 something, its only going higher.! Buy it if you can get it at a good price.

    Wolf 9MM is fine for busting paper. I wouldn't be concerned about their quality and I've burned thousands of rounds of it through my Walther P99 AS with no issues.

    I've sent lots of wolf ammo crashing into cans and paper, no problem. (.45) You would not expect it to be high grade self protection ammo or match grade ammo, and it is not. Although, I doubt one would want to get hit with one.

    This is one of those 'bang for the buck' issues we all hear about.

    Buy foreign made products because they're cheap and work reasonably well - seems to be a good value...
    Don't buy American made products that perform very well, but are more expensive.

    From where I sit, lowering one's expectations of performance and purchasing foreign made products seems to fly in the face of American Capitalism.
