    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.

    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.

    So the ranges are littered with them?
