None! Ammo already has powder in the case, along with a bullet and primer.

Just kidding, I think, If you are asking how many grains of powder to load in Wolf fired 7.62x39 "brass", then that's different. Still can't answer your question though, need to know which powder. Many to choose from. What loading manuals do you have? Most have some data for the 7.62x39.

If you are asking the difference between regular wolf and the military classic line, the major difference would be the harder primers and different binder to hold the bullets into the casing on the military classic. I also suspect that the propellant would be a slightly higher pressure as the semi auto military rifle generally needs to cycle no matter what and they use that extra pressure to accomplish this in firearms made to utilize this ammo. True military ammo is only FMJ also.

What kind of powder does the Russian military use? And how many grains of that?

Nobody knows.
If they told us, they would have to kill us.

The best bet would be to pull a bullet and weigh the powder charge.
It wouldn't matter what kind it is, because you can't get it anyway.

As for reloading Wolf Military Classic 7.62x39?
You can't, because it is steel case Berdan primed.
And you can't get Berdan primers in the U.S. anymore either.
