Is it OK in an M1 Carbine?  I kinda remember it causing issues.   Thanks.

I ended up with an extra case.

Shot plenty of Wolf steel case with no issues , though it does give a bit of blow back from time to time.

Had a friend fuck his extractor with steel case.  Then we couldn’t get the bolt apart without the bolt tool and then after a new extractor it’s reliability went downhill.

Whoa, please stop the misinformation. US contractors made lots of steel cased .30 caliber carbine cartridges during WWII.

One of the main suppliers was the Evansville ( Indiana) Ordnance plant. Zinc plated cases totaling 500 million rounds. Also large quantities of .45 ACP ammo produced in steel casings starting around October 1942, totaling over 3.2 Billion rounds. It freed up brass for the higher pressure cartridges like .30-06 and 50 BMG.

Another steel case ammo manufacturer was Twin Cities ( Minnesota ) Ordnance plant.

Modern steel cases have slicker coatings on them, and an occasional magazine or three in a clean firearm won’t hurt. A dirty or gritty chamber is when there might be concerns with the extractor.

Three main firearms for this cartridges is the M1, Ruger Blackhawk, and various models of the AMT Automag.

Really depends on how mild the case heads are in comparison. Sheared my friend’s extractor lip right off. I changed his extractor for him.

I'd planned on testing Wolf through my Carbines before the ammo crunch hit. I found a place blowing out Armscor brass cased right before the current panic thought at $11.99 a box of 50 so I loaded up on that instead

Maybe if we ever see it in stock again, which I don't expect for 2-3 years. .30 Carbine ammo tends to go OOP when these ammo shortages hit, after Newtown 2012 I didn't see any for almost 2 years

Most of the stuff the Germans were making towards the middle/end of the war was steel. The  Russians started doing it also.. so.. steel has been around for a while.. just got bad mouthed why it took so long to catch on here in the states.

As you see if the US got into ..

M1 carbine = little hard on
