Wolf ammo is some of the most affordable available today, and also some of the most controversial. Wolf is imported from Russia, and most of what you'll see available today is called Wolf Performance Ammunition, but it's really just the same as the old boxes that used to just say Wolf.
The ammo I tested for this video is a 9mm 115gr full metal jacket. It's newly manufactured and non-corrosive, with a polymer-coated steel case. The steel cases are not reloadable, but using steel instead of brass keeps the cost way down. Steel creates more friction than brass, so they put a polymer coating on it to help with feeding. The bullet is a lead core with a bi-metal jacket.
Now, contrary to what a lot of people believe, Wolf ammo does not have a steel core. The jacket is made of an alloy of copper and steel to save cost versus a pure copper jacket. But the core itself is a normal lead bullet. Some ranges don't like you to use ammo that will attract a magnet, mostly out of fear of ricochets or damage to steel targets. I haven't experienced either of these problems using Wolf ammo, but your range may feel differently, so be sure to check first.
I did some quick function and reliability tests with Wolf ammo in seven different guns. I had no problems with six of those seven. I did have one failure to extract on an old third gen Smith & Wesson auto. It's a great gun, but it doesn't typically like to feed anything other than brass case ammo, so it's not really surprising that I had a problem. On the other hand, the Wolf ammo worked great in the Kahr CW9 that we shot, despite the fact that Kahr recommends you only shoot brass case American ammo in their pistols.
It seems like Wolf gets a bad rap from some people. Maybe because it runs a little dirtier than other ammo, or maybe because it's steel cased, maybe because some people just don't trust the Russians. But the truth is that some guns just don't like certain kinds of ammo, and Wolf is no exception. And just like most other ammo, Wolf can be very reliable in the right gun.
I took a handgun class earlier this year, and ran 500 rounds of Wolf through my MMP in two days. I didn't clean it, or lube it, or anything the whole time. I didn't have any problems at all. On top of that, Wolf outperformed several domestic brands in a accuracy test. From a bench rest at 15 yards, the ten shot group was as good as any 9mm range ammo I've tested so far.
If you don't need to reload and you want some inexpensive, accurate range ammo, be sure to try out Wolf.

I’ve shot most of it through my M&P Shield at this point. I have had a couple times that the slide didn’t lock open on a empty mag, but that was probably just me riding the slide release. Just thought I’d mention it. The lightning fast shipping really was. Ammo works just fine, no problems.
Incompatible with some easy loaders
It's difficult with my easy loader that is supposed to load several bullets at once. Even when loading one at a time, still doesn't load correctly because of the rough steel that is not nearly as smooth as brass. Also, the spam can version that you have to get through in order to get to the boxes of ammo is a pain in the...
Stuffs a little dirty, but that’s graphite that they coat the gun powder to make it last longer, And to lubricate the bore. I have about 12 9 mm pistols and a carbine, and it works great in all of them. I love the stuff!
Cheap with no issues
This runs better than expensive ammo in my MP Shield 9mm. I've shot 700 rounds without a single issue. For comparison I've shot 150 Hornady critical defense and had one dead round and one failure to eject, while this "cheap" ammo seems to be even more reliable somehow.
Not compatible with my weapon
They are about like mixing in dummy rounds randomly into your mags. Great for practicing failure to fire drills. So far this is the only ammo that gives me trouble in both of my G19’s. Even for the price they aren’t worth it. At least two per mag would fail. Switch ammo, no issues, but this stuff back in and failures left and right.
Great practice rounds
I've fired about half of the 500 round order in my pistol caliber carbine and my 9 mm Glock and have had no misfires. Good clean ammo to shoot at a reasonable price. Lucky Gunner has never failed to deliver as promised when you order with them.
Good enough for blowing off some stuck in the office blues.
Put 200 rounds through my Taurus Millennium G2 with no problems. I did not notice any issue about them being excessively dirty but then I clean my guns after every trip out so 200 wasn't a lot of dirt. I will buy more.
Great round, if there were not so many mis-fires
I have to admit that I was a little bit wary buying Russian ammo with metal casing. I bought it for my Springfield XD9. I was most worried about jamming that I experienced earlier using metal casing with my Carbon 15. The good news is, no jamming. The bad news: I had at least one mis-fire in a magazine of 10 shot (about 80 rounds total so far). So don't buy this ammo if you need reliability.
Great ammo, great value
I put 100 rounds through my new SCCY with no misfires. I had one failure to feed. I'm not concerned about that because I use this ammo for practice and carry hollow point for home and self defense. This is outstanding ammo for training and I'll buy more of it. It's a great value and I sure appreciate your offering it a such a reasonable price.
Bought 500 rounds, fired all but the last 50 out of my new S&W SD9VE. No failure to fires, only one failure to eject and that shot was fired by someone who had never shot a gun before, and I'm pretty sure he was slowing down the slide by accident so it wasn't the round's fault. Leaves a little more burnt powder behind than the Blazer ammo but it cleans up easily, no hard scrubbing needed, a few repetitions through the bore with my brush and it's clean as the day i bought it.
Highly recommend for the range.
Love the security checks you made
Due to a recent move, you guys called and asked several security checks on by behalf (to benifit me) prior to shipping out the product. I have made many prior purchases and love the fact that you look out for our (your customers) safety and are not just out to make a sale!!! That speaks volumes about the character of your company - and for that ---- I thank you!
The product itself is great and the pricing is excellent!
Will continue to do business with you!!!!
Great Business you have
Love the products, love the prices, and I love the fact that you guys verify who we are to keep us safe. IE .... I recently purchased a new home and asked that my order be shipped to my old address as I was going to be away for a couple weeks. You guys called me and asked some questions to confirm who I was and the addresses. This shows a sense of responsibility on you, for me (us). And for that I thank you!!!
Keep up the good work and the great deals! :-)
REALLY good practice ammo
I am now just past 3,000 rounds of this ammo from these people. We have fired this ammo in a dozen different handguns and 3 carbines. Experiencing about a 2% failure to ignite regardless of weapon system. Great to train with, including an intermittent clearance drill when experiencing failure to fire. Would not buy to carry anyway, but good range fodder. BB Battery Oaks Range
I would highly recommend this ammo. After shooting 500 round and having only one round fail to fire, I am very pleased with the quality of the ammo for the price. Also, the ammo is a lot less dirty then I thought it would be.
My range master told me these rounds would be good practice clearing ammo misfires during tactical training because of weak primers. Turns out that after shooting 300+ rounds in one session, not one misfire. They are great for range ammo and practice when I can't be bothered picking up and reloading brass.
I have fired half of what I bought.......not one mis- fire. I have a Ruger P89 and have not had any problems jamming, ejecting.......nothing. I really enjoy shooting and I have no problem ordering more. Ordering was easy, delivery was fast and product was and is as advertised. Really great value !!!!
I guess the price is okay for the quality you get but I wouldn't purchase for anything but strictly putting a bunch of rounds down rage at some targets or something... I had 3 out 2 boxes that did not fire, bad primers? Not sure. I also had failure to feed MULTIPLE TIMES and jammed up. Almost like a double feed... I think these rounds are shorter than the usual rounds i use in my gun. i just saw what I thought was a good deal an jumped on it. More than likely not purchasing this ammo again. Any suggestions for some good 9 x 19 ammo? For target practice.
OK for the money
I shot only 50 of these in a quick range class, but I had 3 FTE's in that short amount of time. I'm new to this, but a 6% failure rate is simply too high, I think. I need to try some more to check it out, and I need to try some higher quality ammo to make sure.
Works most of the time.... but...
I used to shoot Wolf ammo in .45 ACP through a Springfield GI .45 all the time... rarely shot anything else and Wolf was without issues. But in the 9mm I have had more issues. FTEs and FTFs in a variety of quality pistols. Plus (and for me this was the BIG thing) a lot of ranges don't allow bi-metal jacket ammo. It sparks on their backstop and makes them all worried you will start a fire with all the gases and target confetti around or ruin their range. I have had to call and find ranges that will let me shoot it. Some have used that magnet test mentioned in the video (Wolf does fail the magnet test which equals no shooting there). I have also heard people say outside it can start wild fires (youtube has videos).... but if you gun likes it, your range likes it and you like cleaning guns buy up in bulk! I have.
STOCK UP!!! Great stuff
I took several Frontsight classes with my Glock 17 (around 700 rounds for class) and I always use Wolf 115 gr. great stuff!
Affordable (I remember around 2005 I used to pay $5 for a box of 50 rounds), accurate and never a jam or a problem! I am a fan of this Wolf stuff. Americans, stock up, you may regret it if you don't...
One day we may say stories to our sons of when we were still able to afford cases of 9mm Wolf...
Italian by birth, American by choice
Althought this product is priced right and I have never has a mis-fire, it is a very inconsistent load and has a tremendous amount of muzzle flash. The steel casings also stick in both my Glock and Ruger mags. I have had many FTC's and have resorted to lubricating my mags before each range visit. If you don't mind cleaning your gun after each trip to the range, then this product will be decent for you. However, if you care about your guns and like to know that your round will be chambered every time, then stay away from this product. If you do buy, I would suggest that you try one or two boxes first. I made the mistake of buying 2500 rounds and now will have to suffer through shooting them.
Good value for range shooting
These are a good value for the range. I've shot 1000+ rounds so far. Sometimes they jam if I fill my 10-round magazine; less often if I just put in 9. Haven't tried cleaning them before use, I've heard that might help. Overall though, I think it's worth the relatively low price.
Great ammo, BEST BUY!!!
Four of us set out to use the Wolf 9mm ammo. It worked flawlessly on the G19 and M9. Several misfires on the Taurus Millenium. After looking at the dimple on the primer it was obvious that the firing pin was not going far enough. Some of the primers were set a tad low. The Millenium was also miss-firing a new box of Winchesters. I cleaned all three pistols and found very little carbon. Great ammo. The Taurus is a bitch of a gun to field strip. BTW – we printed out some targets from Lucky Gunner. The Osama Bin Laden was our favorite to shoot at.
Loved this ammo! No FTF or FTEs in the entire batch. Shooting Ruger P89's and Glock 17's and 19's. Never had a problem with Wolf, and yes, the ammo is a little dirtier than some. Still, accurate enough to shoot string lines at 15-20 yds.
Will buy again and highly recommend.
Excellent Target Practice rounds
If you ever blow through a couple hundred rounds while you're at the range with family or friends, these are the way to go. Inexpensive, reliable and dependable. Great choice for the money.
So So - ok for the price
200 rds of this down range. 1st time using steel cartridge - my SR9C ate it just find - sparks galore when it fires. reloading the mags was more difficult and not as fast even with the Upula because the cartridges just don't slide as easy as brass.
Had several errant rounds that were outside my normal grouping
I did not find it as dirty as others have described. Not bad range ammo for the cost but S&B and some others for 1-2 cents more per round are more accurate
Have yet to fire any of this purchased ammo. Very good value for the money, and good reviews here and elsewhere. However, when I load up my PX4 Storm mags with nothing but this ammo the mag had problems with keeping the ammo in tight and in place ... so I needed to alternate brass then steel case to get my mags to work!! It was weird, never had anything like that happen before.
Russian QC not same as in USA
As I was emptying the boxes of this ammo could not help but notice that there was a film of "dust" on the bullets. Since I had just cleaned my guns there was a rag (had some cleaning solution residue on it) out so I put 200 rounds on the rag & picked it up moving the ammo around in it for about 20 seconds & the ammo was noticeable cleaner. At the range shot first 200 rounds without single FTF & it was comparable in accuracy to similar US made ammo. Opened another box to start reloading mags & found it hard (sticky) to load. Fired 19 rounds with 2 FTFs. The "dust" on the ammo is a problem. Went to range master and borrowed a rag repeated the 20 second cleaning & proceeded to fire 100 more round without another FTF.
So it is the tale of two stories you clean it it works just fine (5 stars), you don't clean it and it is a bear to work with (1 star). Thus it gets 3 stars...
Good Ammo that has gotten a lot better
Years ago this ammo did produce a bit of soot, more than its American competitors but it was still a third the price of even the least expensive American. The product has greatly improved especially since they got away from sealing their primer with lacquer and went to a polymer coating. It now shoots as cleanly as most American ammo and though its price has gone up thanks to the NIC, it still, when available, is the best buy on the market. Better than its Russian counterparts but I havent had any problems even with Tula.
Keep your gun clean and it will fire this ammo as well as the union scale produced product from this country. It aint just the price of copper that is raising prices here....its the damned trade unions.
Good and Dirty
I have had no failures to fire, failures to eject, stove pipes, or squibs so far with 500 rounds spent. I am using a Taurus PT 909. Not sure if the gun's just less picky about ammo than the other reviewers but the ammo works first time every time in my gun. With that said the ammo itself is a bit dirty. This was not detrimental to performance and thus only cost one star for this review.
WOLF MILITARY CLASSIC
This is good ammo. It is not "dirty" as stated below, and does not "jam". I have fired it through Glock 17's, 19's, 26's, and a Beretta M9, fired great. And, it's easy to clean up with the range magnet. If your weapon jams with this stuff, it's not the ammo that's dirty, it your gun. Clean your weapon, the right way, and lube with CLP or MPro7. You won't have jams.
Great for plinking
I think for the money its the best ammo around. If I was getting it for free, then I*d probably want Remington or something made in the usa. But for what I use it for, throwing lead down range, its what I prefer.
Can I Get Some Jam???
Ok!!! I've been waiting to do this review after shooting all my 1000 rounds of wolf, I bought this product thinking... "Hey this seem like a good price" When what I really needed is someone to tell me to spend 20 extra dollars and buy a round with a brass casing!!! First of all this is some of the dirtiest ammo I have yet to run through my CZ 75B. I've never had a jam using any other ammo besides wolf. Although I never had a FTF, sometimes I would have it jam on me twice on the same magazine. So we tried it on the Glock 26 (4th Gen) and that jammed just as bad. There's no way this is only happening to me and how dare everyone else on LuckyGunner give wolf ammunition 5/5 stars!!!
The indoor range I use, Shooting Straight, does not allow the use of steel bullets. The gunsmith put a magnet to the bullet and sure enough, the round stuck to the magnet. Now I have to find a rangw that allows the use of steel bullets. In the future I will no longr use steel bullets or ammo manufactured in Russia
