i have been hearing that wolf ammo is the cheapest and best ammo i can get for my new Mossberg 500. I have been looking online for a few days now but everywhere i have looked they were sold out.
I was curious as to why, and if anybody knew where the bet place to get some ammo in san jose was.

I have never heard anyone say Wolf is the best. Maybe the cheapest, not anywhere close to the best.
Maybe you misheard your buddy and he really said "Wolf is the cheapest and the worst"

well a few people firends have
and a lot of reviews online have said.. there pistol ammo sucks but their 12 gauge ammo rocks, and whatnot so it seemed to be pleasing some people

If you want indoors, Reeds is good. If you want outdoors, Los Altos is a good bet - they have both the tin can range, which is great for slugs into milk jugs, and a do-it-yourself trap range.

From what I remember, Reeds only allow you to use Buckshot or Slugs.
If you just want to "pattern" your shotgun with target loads or whatever, the Santa Clara County Fields Sports Park has a little section where you can pattern your gun on a special target stand. They also have several trap ranges, but I've never tried it.

To clear up what most people think about Wolf shotgun ammo, this is far from junk. Granted, alot of Wolf is but this isn't. The German stuff is made by Schonebeck which is the Lapua,yes Lapua, Munnitions factory in Germany, and the slug is made by SK-Jagd which is also part of Lapua.
The slug has a non-detaching wad making it more stable in flight. So what do you get when you pay twice as much for Brenneke Rotwiels? You get a little better wad, and a slightly higher pressure round. So when someone poo-poo's on your Wolf shotgun ammo, just smile they don't know what they're talking about.
