I found a deal online for wolf FMJ and am thinking about buying it. I went to my local wallmart today and to my astonishment it was $33 for 100rds of Remington UMC! I think I may start shooting russian ammo.

My Sig P220 eats wolf like it ain't no thing and it begs for more.

From what wolf claims and what I have heard the newer wolf stuff is not corrosive.

Why not? If your pistol can gobble them with out any issues, go for it. $0.17/rd is hard to beat for a .45 ACP.

The downside: Steel cased ammo may be hard on the extractor and some indoor shooting ranges don't allow it.

I may also head the same road using Wolf Ammo if Walmart ammo becomes unreasonably expensive.

That is pretty good price. I am currently reloading .45 ACP at .11 cents a round ($106.50 for 1000) (Lasercast LRN, Universal Clays powder, Winchester primers).

I just started reloading. I know I can get cheaper bullets that will bring the cost down a little more.

Yup, TMW just told me today that they no longer allow steel cased ammo. :(

That sucks! Try Los Altos Rod and Gun Club. Last time I was there I shot 1K of Wolf ammo.

The only reason ranges don't allow steel cased ammo is because they have to sift through it when collect the on the range.

Love that place! Can't beat $5 worth of water from the Safeway down the hill for targets :D

+1 I try not to leave them any to collect ;) and would leave the steel cases behind too :rolleyes:

Seems kinda like a silly reason to inconvenience customers like that. All you'd need to sort out the steel cases is a big magnet!

IMHO reloading is the only way to fly.

I like to reload - $120-$130 for .45 ACP with plated bullets... I also have a source for winchester FMJ like they use in the WWB for $86 per 1000 bullets.... that is a smokin deal for real FMJ rounds!
