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.

About 1/20 rounds fail
These rounds often fail to fire when the firing pin strikes, or they don't eject properly. Shot with a Glock 19. Other rounds work fine in the same gun. Fine for the range, just know what you're buying.
Overall, it shoots!
I've bought thousands of rounds of this ammo, primarily running it through my Glock 19 Gen 4. I've only had one FTE. (Only other problem was with an new shooter.. limp wrist).
I've had some shooting buddies poke fun at me for shooting this 'Russian crap', but my thinking is I get to shoot more for cheaper! Overall good ammo... especially for the price point. Thank you Lucky Gunner!
Terrible *Light primer strikes*
While shooting with my Glock 19, I repeatedly encountered light primer strikes with this ammo. Out of 500 rounds i had at least 1 in 5 fail on me. This really took the fun out of shooting having to clear failed rounds over and over. Wont be buying again, and i do not recommend it. If you want a better steel cased option, try out the Brown Bear. Its better ammo and i had no malfuntion issues.
Good for high-volume practice
I've fired 600 rounds between two CZ P-07s (one manufactured 2014 with the slightly heavier recoil spring [blue], one manufactured 2015 with current recoil spring [grey]). This ammunition is a bit dusty and throws some sparks, but it's reasonably consistent. If you're a good shot you'll still print respectable groups (one ragged hole) at ten yards. I haven't shot for groups at longer distances.
On the pistol with the heavier spring I had some rounds fail to lock the slide back on the last round. I had maybe one hard primer every 100 rounds. Each fired on the second try. This ammo is dusty and smoky and it leaves the gun the same way, although it is very easy to clean. It will leave your firearm smelling rather like a car, though.
Bottom line: if you like a lot of practice and don't reload, this ammunition is an exceptional value.
Good cheap range ammo
Worked fine with Glock 19 gen 4 using magpul 17 and 19 round mags. 4 hiccups out of 200 rounds. Fine with me, don't mind the clearing practice.
Note: some guns will have light primer strikes with this and other steel cased ammo, like my Glock 26. It's worth seeing if this works with your gun before you buy a case of it.
Inexpensive for a reason
I just shot 200 rounds through my Glock 19 Gen 4 and a few times had failure to eject and one bullet failed to fire and made the trigger jam. Up until now (2500 rounds), I have had zero jams, failure to eject, or failure to fire using ammo from Georgia Arms, Tula, Perfecta, Winchester, Federal, and a few others. The low price is attractive, but not worth the problems in my opinion.
Worked great in my Sig
I bought one box of 9mm to try in my Sig SP2022 to verify function before investing in larger quantities. This box fired with no issues what so ever. Accuracy was very good. Upon cleaning my pistol after my range visit it didn't appear to be dirtier than other ammo fired through the gun. More rounds might make me rethink but right now I think it is a good value for use on the range especially when you can obtain it on sale. Great value.
Jam, jam, jam
Recently fired several hundred rounds with my S&W M&P Shield. I had jams with nearly every clip and several misfires. I had just cleaned the gun prior to use but weapon jammed once I went through a clip. Don't waste your money on this ammo. Stick with brass.
Casing over expand and cause a jam. I fired these rounds in both my Beretta Nano and my brand new S&W 986. The Nano had to be dis-assembled in the field to remove the spent casing and the 986 I had to use pliers and a punch to remove the casing from the cylinder. I'll never purchase this ammo again.
Looking for a rating lower than one star.
I fired a Glock 17, 27, a Ruger LC9, and a Baretta 92 SF, same results with all weapons. At a minimum, at least every third round failed to fire, with a solid strike on the primer deep enough to be satisfactory. I spent more time racking slides than shooting. After about 250 rounds I gave what was left to a loader for the powder.
Quite unsatisfactory. The ammo for my AR-15 was fine.
overview of Wolff 9mm ammo
I purchased 500 rounds of Wolff 9mm.
I gave it two tries on different days at the same gun range.
I shot about 50 rounds.
I used a new Ruger LC9s.
Both days I had multiple jams.
I believe the ammo fires dirty. I want to get rid of it.
It was/ is a Very upsetting experience.
Misfire every other clip
I own a Glock 19 Gen 4 and had at least one misfire in every other clip. Great value but I will not be buying these again. Not worth the hassle or safety issue of having to clear a round or two every other clip. If these go through your pistol; they are a very good value but they are also NOT made in the USA. Spend the extra 2-3 cents and buy American.
great range ammo cheap enough
Went to the range and all rounds feed flawlessly through my Beretta 92s. Got much betterthen expected groups,the only reason value did not get 5 stars is because for let's say another 24$ for the 1,000 you can get from lucky gunner new brass reloadable ammo so for me the little extra is worth me being able to reload
Good, Dirty, Cheap
Works fine through my FNX-9. Probably ~100 rounds through with no FTF, FTE, or double feeds. Does leave the gun dirty, but that's all the more incentive to clean after each use. Buy/use some Froglube and it won't matter anyway. Good, cheap range ammo.
You get what you pay for
I wasn't expecting a lot out of this ammo, but overall it did pretty well. Out of about 400 rounds I've shot already, I found 3-4 dead primers. The weapon's striker hit the primer. After removing it from the weapon it was clear that the primer had been struck just the same as the others and the round had not fired. There was a consistent indention on the primers that did not go off (not a problem with the gun). We re-chambered these "misfired" rounds and they proceeded to go off the second time they were shot.
Pretty good ammo for practice but would not want my life depending on this ammunition, nor would I want to use it in competition. I bought this ammo knowing that I was going to use it for target practice so I was not really upset. Probably would buy again if the price is right.
Good ammo at good price
I am the President of a 4,000 member shooting range in Northern CA. (65.1 acres). My shooting group has shoot over 5,000 rounds of this ammo in 2014. No failures, and feeds well, at a very good price….Thank you Angie…..
Good for the price
You buy this ammo because it is cheap. It feeds fine in my Glock, but I get a fail to fire about once a box. That's not entirely a bad thing, as it lets you see if you're flinching before you pull the trigger. The rounds have always fired when I've recocked and pulled the trigger a second time. As far as accuracy, I had no trouble hitting a siloughette target at 50 yards! It's dirty, but not bad enough to stop me from ordering.
Wanted to add to my stock of common ammo so I got 500 rds of this Russian Steel 9mm. My 14 year old grandson and I burned up 300 rounds
in my Sig Sauer 2022 ( a great carry weapon) last
Saturday. We put a half a case of "clays" alongside our paper targets and we had a ball ! ! ! at 45 feet.
No jams and no loading problems. Gun was as clean as average when we finished. Now I have to order another batch for my bench stock. A real bargain, especially after the two year hiatus of very pricey ammunition of all sizes and manufacture. I am ordering more.
So Far So Good
Bought 500 rounds and got them very quickly. Great price !! I have fired 250 rounds so far. Mostly through my SIG P226, but probably 50 rounds through a SIG P938. No problems of any sort with either gun, so far. I gave these 4 stars for quality and performance only because I haven't fired too many yet. If things keep going like they have, I'll come back and upgrade my rating.
I have shot Wolf for years and throughout, some shooters always have some poor information. Shoots dirty....[not mine]. Corrosive primers will ruin your gun.....to which I reply "maybe you should clean your gun like you're supposed to and it wouldn't be a problem". Wolf has cycled just fine in whatever 9mm I put them through....as have all Wolf products. I buy the daylights out of wolf and I trust Wolf even in my CC. I buy Wolf with no apprehension at all.
Good Value, Fast Shipping, Not happy with product
I ordered 500 rounds online and it arrived in a couple days. They were used in my New PX4 Storm Inox . Once the gun started to get warm the rounds started getting jammed in the magazine and chamber. I also had some brass rounds (Winchester) and had NO issue with these. Theory is the heat is causing the primer on the steel casing to get gummy.
I think I will stick with brass.
Accurate, cheap, but several failure-to-feed and failure-to-eject
I decided to try this ammo based on the overall good ratings and cheap price. I shoot a Glock 26 and it handles almost any ammo I give it. The first 2-3 magazines were fine, but by the time I had put about 25-30 rounds through my gun, I got my first failure-to-feed on the last round. The next magazine I got a failure to eject after about 3-4 shots (mid-magazine). This happened two more times, so I decided to clean the gun (not normally necessary after only a portion of a box of ammo, but it was dirty). I ran 20 rounds of Federal through the gun without issue. I loaded up my last magazine of WPA and got another failure-to-feed. After that (without cleaning the gun) I ran 8 magazines of Federal through it without a problem. Considering the Federal ammo ran fine, I'm thinking it's the casing. I suggest you try 1 or 2 boxes before buying a lot of this ammo.
Speedy Delivery and Cheap Prices
Lucky Gunner is my go to store after one purchase. Ordered on a Monday night and received Wednesday morning! Cheapest prices around and the ammo worked out well after firing a couple hundred rounds. Really, if you're buying these rounds, its for the price and you can't beat it any where else.
Very satisfied, as always, with all dealings with "Lucky Gunner". Acceptable products as a rule. Products that they back and stand behind. A large portion of our professional business will be directed to and done with the
Works for me!
I bought my wife a Smith & Wesson SD9 for self defense, and I've been teaching her how to shoot. I want her to put a lot of rounds down range so she can be comfortable and confident with the weapon. She's fired over 500 rounds and have yet to have a misfire, jam, FTL or FTE. So far this ammo has been flawless, and I have no complaints. It isn't really any dirtier than other ammo that I've fired, and accuracy isn't bad at all. This stuff is great for practice and the price is very good ... and with Luckygunner's fantastic service, that's just icing on the cake! I understand that some ranges do not allow steel cased ammo, but the club I belong to doesn't mind. So you might want to check with your range before purchasing.
A little dirty but NO failures!!
Not the cleanest ammo on the market but it is RELIABLE, acceptably accurate, and very inexpensive. Plink away without remorse. When gun mag testers use Wolf ammo for heavy volume firing tests it speaks to their confidence in the quality and reliability of the product. That's good enough for me. I will purchase more in the future and Lucky Gunner will be my supplier of choice.
Good target ammo for the price
The Wolf ammo fires dirty, leaving heavy soot on my guns, but it cleans off easily. I have used Wolf 9mm ammo for two years in 3 different guns, I had jamming problems with one of the semi-automatics, and that gun fires the more expensive ammo without a problem, but at half the price, I'll stick with Wolf and deal with the jams in the one gun.
My range won't allow me to use it.
I ordered 1000 rounds and have fired maybe 150. So far, so good. Unfortunately, the range master where I took my daughter shooting got all bent out of shape about the steel casings and said they don't allow them in their range as he quickly snatched them up with a shop magnet. I suppose that whoever they sell their brass to won't accept mixed casings. I had to buy a couple of boxes of their overpriced ammo, (almost $20 per box) or lose the rest of my range time with my daughter. So I guess that I will have to set on the rest of them until I can go out to a buddy's private range in the country.
Great, Cheap, Range Ammo
Wolf. Its not a name that is synonymous with the words "quality" or "clean". However, those days of lacquered steel casings are gone, and WOLF has definitely done right by the shooters with their Polyformance ammo.
No joke, I like this ammo a lot. I've fired over three hundred rounds in my Springfield XD9, and haven't had a single issue, and I haven't cleaned it yet! (More for my own testing of the pistol and not the ammo.) The rounds are just as accurate as any brass cased ammo I've shot, and although I haven't benchrested it on paper targets, if I can continue to hit the soda cans I've been shooting at twenty yards, I don't think I need to. This is prime-time affordable plinking ammo... if you want to drop 25-30$ 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.
eh, not that good
cheap, but you might as well throw your gun at the target. After running about 50 rds through my Taurus 24/7 I got consistent jams. Cleaned the gun and it took another 50 rds or so to jam up, failing to feed is the exact issue. I mixed it up with Remington ammo and got decent results. Using the rest of what I bought, but will spend the extra nickel per round so I can shoot. Bullets travel faster and farther than I can throw.
I read the reviews and decided to give these a try for my Ruger P95. First shot jammed. Pulled the magazine and reloaded it, jammed again. Used a different mag, same result. Even trying to load the mag, they didn't seat properly. Won't be purchasing these again.
I think I just found my new range ammo!
I order this ammo because of all the good reviews and I was sick of buying a box here and there. I have been through 250 on my G26 and a 100 on a G19 I haven't had any problems at all. I clean my weapon after every vist to the range so I can't say anything on the fact if it's dirtier then other ammo. Lucky Gunner shipping was super fast I think I have found my new ammo website!
