    Is there anything wrong with this stuff for just plinking purposes? Just want it to feed the Glock 19 I just picked up yesterday. One of my buddies was telling me to stay away from it at all costs.

    Aside from it being a little dirty I don't have a problem with it just for plinking. Buy a little bit at first just to make sure your gun likes it then get all you want.

    I've had wolf gum spent casings pretty badly in a sig pro and an XD40 - several times. If you don't mind punching them out every so often, it's not so bad :dunno:

    Its probably not bad but when I can buy aluminum cased cci blazer for the same price or less I'd rather buy it.

    my friends XD 40 tears up the casing of wolf when ejecting, probably from sticking a little bit.

    I shoot that non stop out of my USP45 and SKS no problems at all. If it fucks up your gun it's a good excuse to get a new one.

    I shot ~75 rounds of it through my AK and save for some gunk in the gas tube and a persistent stain on the piston, it was pretty clean. I was shooting the newer polymer-coated stuff.

    I typically shot UMC or WWB through my Glock and S&B through my revolver - both are fairly cheap. I might switch to S&B for the Glock since UMC has been seeing some price increases lately (no more $6 boxes/50 at Bass Pro anymore!).

    I shot a box of CCI Blazer through my 357 revolver last week and hated it. Two major problems - it was 357mag-sized case but had the kick of .38 special, and it was a pain to eject the spent casings. I'll just keep buying S&B for a dollar less per box if that's typical of CCI Blazer.

    Perhaps it's better in different calibers or automatics where the energy put into ejection is signifigant and the chamber pressures are lower. I'm just not going to buy it for my revolver anymore.

    Might just be the combination of the caliber + your style gun.
    I've never had a problem with Blazer in 9 or .40.

    One thing to keep in mind is that a lot of indoor ranges don't allow steel cased ammo, which is what Wolf is.

    Thats a bullshit policy...it's most likely so they don't have to sift through the wolf casings when steeling everyones spent brass to reload.

    I picked up 1k rounds of wolf in .223. It's the steel cased stuff...not the polymer coated that melts and gums up your gun. I've had no problems in my Bushy except for the fact it's a bit dirtier...but I clean it after every range trip..so no problem. Never tried it in my 1911 or 9mm.

    Mabye that is correct....as long as there is not coating on the casing it should be ok.

    All the steel-cased Wolf is coated 'far as I know. I hear regular complaints about the laquer coating stuff and few complaints about the polymer coating. I suspect that the polymer is much more heat resistant.

    filtering steel cases from brass is stupidly easy if you have a magnet handy. Doesn't help you with aluminum cases, which noone seems to be interested in banning at ranges.
