Manufactured in one of Wolf's legendary production facilities in Russia. This product is steel-cased, berdan-primed, non-corrosive, and non-reloadable.
Video Transcript:Wolf ammo is manufactured in Russia and is some of the least expensive centerfire ammo available in the country. They have a few different brands, and the ammo we're looking at today is the 115-grain, 9mm WOLF PolyFornance.
Like most WOLF ammo, this is steelcased with a light polymer coating on the outside of the case to help with reliable feeding. The cases are not reloadable, but they contain non-corrosive primers and should not damage or fire on in any way.
Contrary to popular belief, the bullets used in WOLF ammo do not contain a steel core. They use a typical lead core and a bimetal jacket of steel and copper. Some shooting ranges prohibit the use of ammo that will attract a magnet, as these bullets do. However, they are generally just as safe as other types of ammo, and I've never personally experienced any problems with damage to targets or ricochets.
We tried out this ammo in a few different test guns with mixed results. It fed just fine in most of our guns, but we had some trouble with our Kahr CW9. Kahr recommends only using brass-cased ammo in their guns, so it's not entirely surprising that we would have had a couple of failures to feed. Other guns seemed to handle it just fine, and none of the failures involved any ignition problems.
We tested accuracy from a benchrest at 15 yards using a Beretta 92. The results were not too bad, and it seemed about equal to most other low cost range ammo in this caliber. We shot a few extra rounds with our Beretta Storm carbine, and got a bit better accuracy even out to 25 yards.
Say what you want about cheap Russian ammo. If the gun and the shooter are up to the task, it should perform pretty well in most cases.
If you need some inexpensive range ammo, and you aren't looking for reloadable brass, then WOLF PolyFormance will get the job done.

No joke, I like this ammo a lot. I've fired over three hundred rounds in my Springfield XD9, and haven't had a single issue, and I haven't cleaned it yet! (More for my own testing of the pistol and not the ammo.) The rounds are just as accurate as any brass cased ammo I've shot, and although I haven't benchrested it on paper targets, if I can continue to hit the soda cans I've been shooting at twenty yards, I don't think I need to. This is prime-time affordable plinking ammo... if you want to drop 25-30$ a box on some premium target ammo, go right ahead, but I'm more than happy with my WOLF ammo, especially at these prices. Way cheaper than even the White Box Winchester (and I think cleaner too) that Walmart has on the store shelves, and it feeds reliably in all of my pistols.
If you're having feeding issues, its either your gun, or the magazine and not the ammo. I specifically purchased guns with robust extractors that are 100% reliable so I can shoot this ammo, and pretty much every 9mm. If your gun doesn't feed WOLF, then I'd suggest you purchase the expensive brass cased stuff, otherwise, pick up a box or two and see how your gun handles it.
As far as cleaning up, I wouldn't know, as I haven't cleaned any of the weapons that have shot it.
One more point... its steel casing makes it a LOT lighter, I'd dare to say it feels about 30% lighter. I know for a fact that I can carry plenty of extra ammo because of the reduced weight. (Posted on 9/28/12)
