    Wolf ammo seems to raise a thought between the 2 probably nought to do with each other just something sprung up, I think Wolf ammo used steel cased stuff and was pretty hot loaded. Probably got it wrong.

    Wolf ammo being Russianicon is not worth the price for use in USGI rifles. The steel case if used in a Garandicon or in a carbine does not seal the chamber properly. This allows a build up of carbon in the chamber and if not watched and cleaned often leads to problems. Plus the Russian powders are very dirty and in the carbine the bullets are undersized a little bit and are 100 Grs. not the standard 110 Grs. I personally would not use steel cased ammo in any weapon not designed for it. Russian weapons are designed for it but not one USGI rifle or handgun ever has been. Broken extractors happen quite a bit with steel cased ammo. No matter what anyone may say. Steel is steel and is not brass no matter how soft the steel is.

    Bruce, is this something you've checked personally? I've used Wolf Carbine ammo in the past and agree with your post, except for the bullet size and weight. This was 5 or 10 years ago, but the Wolf bullets at that time were close to an exact match with early 70's LC Carbine bullets. I pulled down one cartridge each from the Wolf, LC 71, and LC 72. The LC bullets both measured .674" in length, weighed 106.9g and 106.8g, and were .308" and .309" diameter. The Wolf bullet was .673" long, weighed 106.8g, and was .308" in diameter. Just yesterday, I pulled bullets from several WRA '44 M-13 dummy rounds - those weighed 110-111 grains. For the later LC cartridges, the specs for the bullet weight is 108.0 - 3.0g - Bob

    Bob, Wolf finally had to change the printing on their boxes to reflect the 100 gr. Bullets. A friend who tried the Wolf awhile ago pulled a couple of rounds as he was not hitting the target where he should have. The bullets were.306 to .307 diameter. The box was marked 119 gr. bullets but the rounds were 100 gr. He did say that the powder even had the look of being dirty.
