I am sure this has been covered on this forum but I am new to the 1911 and am about to buy my first 1911 a Kimber custom in stainless steel and was wondering if any of you have had any luck with wolf ammo in 45 acp many of my Glock brothers have had poor luck with it in there guns

My Friend bought a case of .45 cal he had 3 squib and too many failure to extract. I've used their 7.62x39 and 9mm and had no problem with both.

I won't shoot cheap ammo in anything but a cheap gun. If it's an AK or SKS, then Wolf ammo is OK.

As a reloader, I find steel cases to be repulsive and probably the work of democrats or satan.

I will never shoot the Wolf .45 ACP ever again!!! I've put over 3000 round of various hardball and hollowpoints through my Kimber without any problems. Then I tried the Wolf ammo since it was cheap. I experienced my first FTF and FTE with the first box! Unfortunately, I bought 10 boxes. It's also inconsistent. Some rounds are much hotter than others ( you know..bang-bang-BANG!-bang-bang.) And you have to get use to that weird smell you get after firing it. The worst part is the residue that it leaves behind in your guns. I mean DIRTY!!! My poor kimber has never had it so bad. Just a couple hundred rounds leaves this gritty sand-like powder all over the inside of the slide and frame. If I want to shoot cheap from now on I'll stick with S&B. At least it's clean and accurate.

The 9mm Wolf ammo isn't all that bad though. It seems a little hotter than standard 9mm (which my CZ-75 prefers)and the muzzle flash is greater, but it seems a bit cleaner than the .45 ACP. It's also fairly accurate which the .45 ACP is only so-so. Why Wolf can't make their .45 ACP as well as their 9mm is beyond me.

Just pick up a box on local gun show to try, all 50 went without any problem. Unfortunatelly, I'm not experienced enough to comment on accuracy (I usually blame myself
). Only negative for me is non-reloadable brass.

'Forgot to mention that one of the indoor range I go to won't let anybody shoot if Wolf ammo is used. The owner said Wolf ammo had blown-up 2 guns (springfield 1911 and Ruger P-90. He suspects both blew up due to squib load.
