well, on my first 1000 round purchase of 45, all I could really find was WOLF 230gr. I have had no FTF with it and my xd eats it good, I have since got 2000 rounds of speer, seem as though ammo is getting easier to find.

My locale range got an order of Nato 7.62 in from Italy and they want $364.00 for 250 rounds I believe.

If you have a torture test gun, Glock, XD, etcetera, again, functions just fine.

Surplus, as others have said, is almost always corrosive. Depending on the caliber, alot of it is loaded a hair hotter than commercial stuff.

Lacquer is an enemy. Lacquer coating, while protecting the round past the end times, heats up and eventually gums up. Often times a b***h to get out of your gun.

If you shoot, you can't beat the price.

Wolf, while filthy, goes bang and is alot of fun, and mostly reliable, too.
I didn't know that Lacquer was that bad. I'll have to avoid it. As a matter of fact, I have to make sure I don't have any of that crap, LOL.

Another potential problem associated with steel cased ammo is the way it behaves in your chamber. Brass being much softer expands more rapidly and more completely. This means it grips the chamber walls much tighter than than steel. Why is this important? Because if a case does not form a temporary weld with the chamber walls, it is free to slam back into the bolt face at the peak of the pressure curve. Doing this repeatedly will cause damage to the bolt face and possibly the extractor.

Here's a link I found about Lacquer Ammo. Sounds very very bad:

Lacquer coated ammunition warning

Wolf Black Box is lacquer free. Wolf Military Classic, the Brown Bear, lacquer rich.

The temptation to get the Military Classic with it's cool camo box should be accompanied with a bottle of acetone or nail polish remover.

Your camo box Man points are negated by your Emo nail polish points.

Black Box.

Well, that is what I bought, the black box, steel case, boxer primed, non corrosive,230gr, so guess I lucked out buying sight unseen.

I am not sure this is true so you take your pick.powder made from wood chips is dirtier than powder made from cotton.they do make the two.

Are you serious?! Wow! That sounds bad. I've never researched it after all.
