    Any concerns over Glocks and Wolf Ammo?

    I am new to owning a Glock and somewhere in my memory banks I seem to remember that using Wolf Ammo in a Glock was not a good thing. Or was that CCI?

    PS: it's a 3rd Gen 19

    Your Glock may not like it, and thus it may jam. But seriously, its just a nominal factory load with crappy steel cases. it wont hurt your gun at all.

    Wolf may not feed in some guns, and its not he most accurate, but it does go band when you pull the trigger, and certainly will NOT harm your gun.

    I havent used any wolf ammo in my glock, but have read where other glock owners has been using wolf & having no problems with it,other than it being dirty.

    I've used wolf in my AK & AR,eats it up like cotton candy.

    Like most non-commie guns, the Glock's not really made for steel-case ammo. It might be hard on your extractor, just like it might be hard on the extractor of a Colt or a Beretta. Then again, it takes about 5 minutes to drop in a replacement extractor, so it might be worth it for the cheaper ammo on a range piece.

    Glocks & Wolf Ammo

    I tried to fire Wolf ammo thru my Glock 22. I had numerous failures to fire. I think that the ammo has hard primers. The weapon was very clean. I suggest that you only buy one box of Wolf and see what happens.

    I've used it in my 23. Pretty dirty. No problems. It shoots sparks out the barrel though. That is a little concerning.





    ETA: CCI Blazer in a .40 is rumored to be an iffy proposition, due to the unsupported chamber. Plenty of guys use Blazer though.

    I've put over 500 rounds of Wolf through my G30 without any problem with anything. It ejected and fed flawlessly.

    I haven't tried it with a G, but had a lot of problems with it in a S226 and C75
    clone. I won't touch the Wolf 9mm stuff anymore. However, I have used
    both Wolf 55 and 62g 223 in my AR (1000s of rds) and love it for cheap
    plinking. Same with the 7.62x39 in AKs and SKSs (of course).

    Why do people insist on buying what I consider expensive handguns and then insist on shooting cheap, crap ammunition in those expensive guns????!!!!
    If you can afford to buy a Glock, or a decent 1911, or a USP, or a Sig, for goodness sakes you can afford to buy and shoot good quality ammunition.

    I bought my G17 to take advantage of cheap 9mm ammo. And Wolf is cheap 9mm ammo. I've fired thousands of rounds through it and have had no problems.

    ChuckB, that's why I said "for a range piece". Your defense pieces should be fed a strict diet of non-steel-cased ammo.

    Then there is something wrong with your 22. Get it fixed.

    As a reloader and a guy who collects a good amount of range ammo, I find one to three cracked Wolf cases every range trip.

    Wolf is the absolute worst ammo available.

    Guys at AR15 have complained about it for years.

    The cases aren't always to spec and their powder is filthy.

    While our Glocks can shoot any ammo, there have been some kabooms with it.

    Skip the Wolf - it's the cheapest crappy ammo ever. :barf: :barf: :barf:

    If you want affordable and hot range ammo, South Africa and Hungary make some nice ammo. MFS brand IIRC.
