Ok, so I plan on buying a new gun soon and I've really been thinking about a Thompson 1928 SBR and I was wondering if anyone has had problems with shooting Wolf .45 in it. I have always had good expierences with Wolf .223 and 7.62x39 but I was just wondering if anyone who has used Wolf .45 in a semi Thompson had any problems. Thanks

Asking people about how a brand of ammo works in a gun is largely futile.

Each and every gun is a case unto itself.
What works great in my gun may cause yours to choke.

All you can really do is try the Wolf and see how it works in YOUR specific gun.

i read in SOF Mag a year or two ago that wolf .45 didn't cycle the thompson correctly (carrier being too heavy? I have no clue) but they said that wolf has since corrected the problem...

But then again, it is sof mag...

I had a standard thompson and the first time I used wolf my extractor broke. Not sure if it was the ammo or the extractor but I didn't use it again in it and it worked fine. I still shoot it in my ar though.

We issued steel-cased .45 in WWII. As was pointed out in another thread elsewhere (and is correct) we didn't issue ONLY steel-cased .45, but towards the end of the war, that was what as issued.

It should run fine.

Same as in 1911's, etc...should run just fine.

I like wolf for AK's and AR's. Never had anything but trouble with Wolf 45. I can usually get through 2 boxes of Wolf 45 before my guns jam.

Guns tried in:

For some reason I've never shot Wolf in my Glock 21 and probably never will.

From what I've read, the Thompson will give you more issues than the Wolf. Something about the closed bolt conversion that messes with operation.

When I was detailed to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in New Mexico earlier this year I ran a bunch of .45 Wolf through a full-auto M3, a 1928 and a UMP-45. All worked perfectly with the Russian ammo.

i own a thompson 1928a1... i tried shooting 45wolf and it got stuck in the chamber. thought this was a fluke and tried it again... same thing.. wolf got stuck in chamber. i now shoot Wal mart winchester 45.

also shot wolf 9mm thru my glock.. works fine.. plus their rifle ammo. also shot wolf 45 thru my 1911, no problems. only problems was teh 1928a1.

Runs fine in my 76/45, several thousand rounds of it in FA. Can't remember ever having a malfunction with it.

I talked to Don Reed at a local IDPA match. He says he reloads WOLF cases and uses them in his semi-auto Tommy.
