    Sparks flying with Wolf Military Classic 9mm ammo

    I'm shooting some Wolf 9mm at the range the other day and I notice sparks as the bullets are hitting the angled metal plate backstop. I look on Wolf's website and they call the bullet bi-metal so I checked a round with a magnet and it stuck. Is this a copper coated lead bullet with a steel core?

    My question is if anyone has had an issue shooting this ammo in a Glock and their unique barrel rifling? I did not notice any issues after several 100 rounds.

    Yes, it is steel cored.

    I wouldn't say its bad, as long as the range permits it. As far as the barrel, there should be no problems either. It has a copper jacket. I use Tula, basically the same thing, in everything I own. Pistols and rifles. No premature wear or other issues.

    Other than the fact that it is dirtier than a lot of other brands, I don't know what is "bad" about it. I've used it in many guns without problems.

    I have not used Wolf, yet. I have used Tula Ammo in my Mosin-Nagant with no problem.

    As for pistol ammo, I have not used any Wolf or Tula but may try it just to see if it even works. It is inexpensive, I have seen 9mm at Wally World in my area for $9 a box of 50 rounds.

    I dont think there is inherently anything bad about Wolf or Tula. I do think there is alot of hype about premature extractor wear from the steel cases. But if this is true, for the money you save practicing with it you can buy a ******* lot of extractors.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
