A gunsmith told me that steel cases are very hard on extractors. A shooter told me the steel cases damaged his gun's feed ramp. These are good reasons to play it safe and use brass.
Even if you don't reload, you can give the empties to a friend who does and watch his eyes light up.
There have been numerous threads floating on the forum regarding the steel case used in wolf ammo. Most reliable sources have dispelled the myth that there is a risk of damaging the extractor. The real problem seems to be that the steel casing doesn't fully expand to seal against the chamber wall, this allows hot gases to escape and foul the chamber which may cause problems on later shots especially if brass casings are used without a thorough cleaning. Most agree that Wolf is perfectly safe to use it just requires a more diligent maintenance and cleaning regimen between shooting sessions.
