Most agree that Wolf is perfectly safe to use it just requires a more diligent maintenance and cleaning regimen between shooting sessions.
I had a nice exp. with wolf ammo and my old M.A.K. 90. I actually had a cartridge that had no powder in it, I had to beat the bullet out of the barrel with my cleaning rod and a hammer. They also coat their shells with some sort of lacquer to prevent corrosion which is just fine if you are shooting a sloppy Russian rifle, but if you put enough of that wolf ammo through a hot AR that lacquer is gonna eventually build up enough to increase pressure.

Fiocchi without a doubt. Just like other posters have said, Wolf has a laquer coating that builds up residue in the chamber when a gun gets hot from firing. Also, it's best to use brass casings.

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
