Wolf Performance Ammunition, or WPA, is manufactured in Russia, and is some of the most affordable center fire ammo available in the US. Wolf is probably best known as one of the largest sources of 7.62 x 39 rifle ammo, but they also produce a variety of other rifle and pistol calibers, like the 45 ACP that we tested for this review. Like most Wolf ammo, this load uses a steel case. These cartridges are not re-loadable, but are newly manufactured and use a non-corrosive primer. The cases are coated with a thin layer of polymer to help increase shelf life and reliability. The 230 grain bullets have a bi-metal jacket made of copper and steel. But despite rumors to the contrary, the core of the bullet is lead. Even so, some shooting ranges believe the bi-metal jackets are a little rough on backstops and steel targets, so make sure this ammo is allowed at your range. We used six different handguns to try out the Wolf 45 load. One of the first things we noticed was the mild recoil. Compared to a lot of other 45 loads, this round is pretty soft shooting. That makes it a good load for anyone who may be sensitive to harsh recoil. It's also not a bad load for smaller guns that tend to be a little snappy with most ammo, like this Kahr CW45. Despite the lower pressure, we didn't have any problems with feeding or ejection in any of our guns. We used our Springfield XDM to fire groups from the bench at 15 yards. Accuracy was not bad for this inexpensive round with most of the shots hitting within and inch or so of the point of aim. More expensive ammo might provide better quality control and re-loadable brass cases, but if you want to stock up on large quantities of low recoil 45 ACP, Wolf offers one of the most affordable options out there.

Worst ammo I bought jammed my firearm after 75 rounds.
Hi, although we don't manufacture the ammo we sell, we do want all of our customers to have an enjoyable experience here at LuckyGunner!
Some firearms just plain ol' don't like steel cased ammo. If you could please give us a call so when can figure out when you made your purchase, so we can determine the best way to help you out! Have a great day!
Do not buy
Bought 500 of these and easily had 15% fail to fire. You could see where the firing pin struck the primer but the round did not fire. Save yourself the trouble, spend a few bucks more and better quality. I ended up giving away 5 boxes it sucked that bad.
Great ammo for the price
Ordered 500 on a Friday received it Tuesday what a fest shipping, took it out to the range, same day shot 100 rounds all smooth through my 1911 PARA no miss fires or failures to load just great ammo for the buck.... Little dirty but very accurate ...
Hope the rest of the ammo will perform the same way
So I bought 1000 of these pieces of garbage. I run a glock 30. Every time I take it out with WPA I get ftf after ftf. That's both F's too. Feed and fire. Brand new magazines. I Took 200 rounds to the range today and had an easy dozen failure to fire, and more then double that in failure to feeds. Could just be me, but I think this stuff sucks. Save your money.
wolf acp 45 ammo
Just used wolf ammo for the first time. Range shooting in Florida. Ruger p90 DC and a Glock 21 gen 4. Both pistols shot fine no misfiring or jamming after 150 rounds each.
For being dirty I think that my winchester ammo was just as dirty out of my 1944 Star 9mm and it also jammed up every few rounds. You have to clean guns anyway. Great deal for range shooting and will be back for more.
after 1000 rounds I still have the same opinion
worst .45 ammo ever. out of 20 boxes, 5 had 1/5 failures to fire/feed. another 5 boxes had a lot of issues and maybe 8 boxes were problem free. May Russia forgive me for cheating on Tula.
What are you stupid? Spend the extra .04/rd for TULA
Without question the ABSOLUTE WORST 45 ACP AMMO I'VE EVER SHOT.
Just today in 150 rounds I averaged about 10 failures to feed/go into battery/fire PER 50 ROUND BOX!
THIS IN A GLOCK 30 for the love of dog!
This same gun has shot over 2K of Tula 45 w/o hassle, and lots of Federal & Armscor brass,
I wish I had bought more Tula.
I've had decent luck with wolf ammo in my AK but this stuff is no good, very bad (insert favorite russian curse word here)
A guy alongside me was shooting Tula in a 1911 with NOT ONE PROBLEM in 100 rounds and he couldn't believe what I was seeing so we burned 20rds of tula - no problem.
I love lucky gunner but this is a terrible lot of wolf.
I'll never cheat on TULA again.
Great product for the cost. It is somewhat dirty but who cares, clean your guns! I ran 400 rounds through a new Sig 1911 Tacops and had no problems. Accuracy was more than acceptable for practice.
Good ammo, will buy again.
In todays market great price for 230 fmj. Shoots good, been shooting it for years. Currently stockpiling all ammo. this ammo is great for shooting for pleasure, cycles well in my M1911 and my S+W 645. keeping the brass ammo for future catastrophic events. Lucky Gunner the place to buy.
Excellent ammo at a good price
I just purchased 500 rounds of the Wolf .45ACP 230 grain FMJ ammo.
It works great in my two 1911 pistols with no misfires or jams.
I highly recommend this ammo and will be buying more in the future.
It was a pleasure doing business with LuckyGunner.
More Plink for your Buck!
Wolf ammo is in no way a top brand for competitive shooting. That being said, this ammo is great practice and plinking ammo. It's only real downfall is it tends shoot a little more dirty then other rounds but as long as you clean your weapon after use, you should have zero troubles. The best thing about wolf ammo is the price. You get more ammo for you money, so for those of us who shoot on regular basis know the price you pay for the quality of ammo you use. I do recommend Wolf ammo for practice/target shooting. Occasionally you will get a round that will misfire. That can be said with all ammo. I have found Wolf ammo to be no worse than any other ammo used for the basis of practice.
Through my Colt Gold Cup Match Target Series 80 I have found the Wolf ammo it to be accurate, with minimal recoil, and no jams or misfeeds during my practice. The one flaw if you choose to classify it in this context is that the ammo leaves quite a bit of powder residue on my pistol. I ran about three hundred rounds so far and other than the above mention (powder residue) I really like them. I don't reload, so the steel casing is not a problem as far as I am concerned. I was shooting @ 50' off hand and on a rest. My off hand groups were four inches, with my @ rest groups of one and one half inches. As you can see I am not a great shot, but this is not the ammo's fault.
