I've shot it, but i was told by the gunsmith at the range that wolf ammunition can cause long term problems. something about the coating they put on it.
If this is the case why do so many people shoot it in their pistols....what is different about a rifle and a pistol in regards to the damage Wolf ammo could possibly do?My understanding is the older Wolf Ammo had a laquer coating which was not good for the pistol, but now its polymer coated (is that the green coating?) which does not harm the pistol, but yes the powder may burn a little dirty, but I always clean my gun after every session so what does it matter???
I've shot Wolf ever since it first came on the market. Never had a problem when it was lacquered and appreciate it more now with the polymer.BTW, it was the older lacquer coated ammo that caused all the problems. The new polymer coated doesn't have all that gunk on it.)
No problem, some people prove their credibility on there very first post.....ahhh, but then again you are "demented", hmmmmm? :?Folks, I'm new here and haven't established credibility
I sound like a Wolf ammo rep, but what did your friend want Wolf to do? and another question is what did Marlin say? did he contact them too?but I have a horror story about Wolf .45 ammo. I swear its true, I saw the actual pieces that were left of the gun! A good friend was shooting his Marlin Camp .45 using Wolf when the rifle blew to small pieces. The stock, magazine, trigger group, receiver, everything but the barrel was gone! Good thing he was hip shooting, he ended up with several deep cuts on his side and upper leg, I shudder when thinking what would have happened if he'd had it up to his face! To add insult to injury, Wolf refused to do anything about this blowup. Wolf? NO WAY JOSE'!
