    Wolf .38 spl ammunition

    Took some out to the range yesterday and shot it through a S&W M686, S&W M686+, S&W M442, S&W M66, Taurus 605, and a Taurus Tracker. The fired cases stuck in everyone of them. I had to knock them out with a screw driver ram rod style. Is this a common problem with this ammo?

    Yes it is. Multiple threads on this. S&W forum have quite a few.

    The steel cased stuff? Yes, it's dog

    I think Leadeye has some experience with it as well.

    Yep. I had a box of it for my 642. Every empty was a PIA to get out.

    I was given a box of Wolf 130 gr. FMJ when I bough a S&W 337. I pulled the trigger on one round in it and that was enough. It plain stung. Tried it in my 3” model 60 and it seemed hotter than Sig 125 gr. FMJ In 357. Once that box is gone, I will not be using that 💩 ever again. If it wasn’t free, it would have been more $$ than it was worth.

    I may need to look into this stuff. Finding factory .38s with sufficient charges to make 125000 PF is super rare.

    3.7 Green Dot with a 158 gr lead or moly coated wil do it.

    With my bad experience wiyh Wilf 45. Wjen I saw they came out with traditional revolver rounds I wondered. I had some Wolf 45 that locked up both a S&W M&P 45 and a 625. Had the same screwdriver ramrod with 625. The M&P had to reaort to a rubber mallet. I threw the other 2 boxes away

    Steel case might be good for AKs but id avoid it with anything else
