I am a long time Glock 21 shooter and just bought my first 220 and absolutely love it.

Ironically, Wolf 230gr will shoot beautifully in it, but Gold Dot 185gr and other loads I have tried for carry do not shoot groups nearly as tight and will shoot to different points of impact...

Any thoughts..?

Glad you posted this, I was going to try out some Wolf ammo this weekend and I didn't know what to expect. Have you had any problems with extraction or any wear on your extractor? MJD

I had a few issues with real cheap ammo in my 200 when I first started shooting it. The action on that particular gun is ridiculously tight at first. I used Hydra-shoks for it in defense mode and I shot winchester target ammo at the range. Apparently hydra-shoks don't flatten as much as they are touted and Gold Dot has a good reputation. I just picked up a Sig P226R Tactical today and will be firing off a bunch of different ammo. The hydra-shoks, gold dot, and I imagine other stuff like Cor-Bon will be awesome. Using either Hydrashoks or Gold dot in any of my Sigs (Sig Pro 9mm, 229 .40, 220 .45) have all loved them without any failures

I have shot Wolf in my Glock for ...... well forever.. I have had my 21 for 8 years and as long as wolf has been available I have shot it without any problems. I just got the p220 so I haven’t run much through it, but what I have has been flawless and very accurate.

My P-220ST runs the Wolf just fine, and damned if it aint accurate out that pistola.

I like the Remington 185gr. and 230gr. Golden Sabers.
My next choice is the Gold Dot.
As for the Wolf .45acp...Ive never had an issue with it in any of my pistols.Its a little on the weak side though.

I've been using the Hornady TAP 230gr. I havent't had any problems with it, accurate and shoots good. It's the new stuff with the black casing.

Have you experienced the muzzle flash at dusk, or at night with that TAP yet? The black-cased stuff (FPD) is supposed to have a suppressant or something to reduce it.

I carry SXT in my 220 as my duty weapon. After I had new meprolite sights put on it, point, shoot, score. Very accurate. My 220 is accurate with about any quality ammo. Most accurate with my handloads, but carry factory for duty due to liability issues. Practice makes the most difference in accuracy.

You are right. Supposedly, it is supposed to have a reduced muzzle flash, but I haven't shot any of it in low light yet.

I carry 230gr. Ranger's in my duty weapon . . . . . .

If you can get some Remington 230 gr. BONDED Golden Sabers, it IS the trick stuff. I have to score a box from my FBI neighbor. It is from Remington LEO distributors. The stuff stays together even when fired thru glass!

Found my problem.

The barrel crown had a burr. My gunsmith removed it and all is as it should be...
It's strange that it didn't affect Wolf the same as the others..
