    like i said, it does more damage to backstop armor because steel is a harder metal than copper or brass. wolf doesn't shatter against the backstop armor like regular ammo, it deforms and causes more damage. this is why many ranges won't allow it.
    I see a lead core with a mild steel jacket and a second, thinner jacket of alloy gilding metal over that. Which is precisely what the Wolf bullet is.

    What I do not see is a steel core...this is a 7.62x39 steelcore round:
