I've found this to be really good information on running steel cased ammo in an AR. Shouldn't be a problem if your rifle is built well:

Literally MILLIONS of rounds of WOLF in
7.62x39 and .223 have been sold to U.S.
shooters over the last few years.
It can be found for sale in almost every gunstore and discount sporting goods store.
Wolf ammo may not be "high performance"
or "premium" but it is reasonably priced and safe to use in any good condition modern firearm.
When a Firearms MFG. Co. won't warrant their products for use with FACTORY COMMERCIAL Ammunition I have to ask myself the following question...
What's wrong with their guns?
-SIG , it's What's for Dinner-
know your rights!
"If I walk in the woods, I feel much more comfortable carrying a gun. What if you meet a bear in the woods that's going to attack you? You shoot it."
Can anyone tell what kind of ammo has been used in a gun? How could they void a warranty when they don't have any idea what ammo you've used?
"Confidence is food for the wise man but liquor for the fool"
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
I think you are missing the point. It is a "limited" warranty and they want to disqualify as many rifles as possible.
They probably get some kind of deal on ammo from somebody other than Wolf.
If a warranty means something to you, better check it out before you make your purchase.
Hey gents, keep those negative steel cased ammo rumors going!! It sure helps keep the price point down for Pirate and I when we go buy in bulk, then get to spend hours at the range shooting, then buy new ARs with the cost savings even when we don't need them!
Seriously, never had an issue and I always have a broken shell extractor and cleaning rod in my range bag just in case.
Oh, and the whole "American manufacturers would never do such a thing" attitude.... Check out Hornady steel cased ammo. Yeah, that just happened.
I love to shoot steel cased in the winter. That way I don't worry about losing brass in the snow. I don't think I ever had a problem with Wolf.

Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.
When I leave the home port:
S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP
The local rifle range has more steel cases on the ground than gravel, if it was junk this wouldnt happen.

I don't like Wolf and wouldn't even CONSIDER using it!!!!! However, as a result of stating my opinion and posting some information, I've been bashed so many times by so many people that I'm bloody and bruised!!!!!!
That's why I like it here so much better. If people have a difference of opinion, big deal. Over there, they are HARD CORE and if you don't agree with them, they will MAKE YOU SORRY!!!!
