Still looking for some cheap 9mm blasting ammo. The Sportsman's Guide is perennially out of the Olympic, so now I'm looking at the Wolf from Ammoman. I know there's some Wolf fans out there for the .223, but has anyone tried the 9mm in a Beretta (or anything else)?

Thanks.

I have shot about 200 rounds of Wolf 9mm in my Beretta 8000. I have nothing bad to report, great blasting ammo!

Go with Blazer. Wolf is fine but I find Blazer to be more accurate. You will hear alot of horror stories about Wolf but I haven't had any problems. Yes it's Russian and it's made cheaper and it dirties up gun's......had some asshole tell me he wouldn't let me use it in my Sig at the indoor range cause it was gonna blow my gun up?!?! He shut up when I told him I regulary cleaned my firearms after shooting. Solution? CLEAN YOUR GUNS. Happy shooting.

Aside from a prior posting of mine warning of possible extractor strain by using wolf, it's actually quite good ammo, especially for the money. I've been very pleased with it accuracy, power, and reliability.

But if you can get Blazer for about the same price, that's they way I'd suggest.

Clean Berettas will eat anything.

No problems in the 1000 rounds I ran through a 92d brigadier(not in one session). It is dirty and the recoil impulse feels different than white box winchester. No jams or failures to feed. Guys at the range thought I was nuts. Kinda strange when they only sell wolf .223 to run through their full auto rental M4(bushmaster) at the same place.

I have a crapload of wolf through my 92FS. Worked like a charm, just like everything else. I just love that gun. It eats ANYTHING.

I have several thousand rounds through it, not one single failure of any kind ever.

Other than the smell I've no bad experience with Wolf 9mm from the Beretta M9/M92FS or the SIG M11/P228. If you're shooting steel plates or bowling pins at short ranges it works fine.

Same with Wolf 5.56mm from M16 type rifles. Pumpkin color and sized fireballs unless you have a flash supressor. I prefer the South African for cheap 5.56mm though.

And with Wolf .45ACP.

Walmart always has bulk 9mm Winchester 100 rd boxes for less than $11/box. Hard to beat.

Thanks, all.

I ended up buying 500 rds of CCI Blazer from Natchez. It's 4.99/box, with shipping it was about six bucks a box. Not bad, not great. I'm gonna pick up a box of Wolf at the gun shop and try it out before I buy a ton of it.

I've shot a couple of thousand of the Wolf 9mm in my Helwan. They were a Beretta Bigadier before Maadi bought the equipment and started making them in Egypt. I've shot alot of the Winchester in the 100 rnd. boxes from Walmart also.

My Glock 34 consumes the Wolf 9mm without any problem. Accuracy is okay, but not tremendous. I'm also a fan of the 100 round packs of the Winchester 9mm from Walmart for $11.00.
