Default Wolf primers?

Anyone use Wolf primers, good or bad? I am looking for primers for 45 acp.

Russian are the primers to use. Lower SD, consistent FPS and very few flyers (as long as you do your part on keeping the charge consistent). I myself use CCI #41/#34 and once I run out of the CCI, off to russian primers.

Only the 50bmg primers they brought in a few years back. They work fine and if anyone has any to sell, I'm interested.

I went to the range last Monday and they all went BANG with those Wolf's. Shot 200 rounds of 45's so I guess they are good...

Heh, just ask rssslvr about his FAL KB with Wolf 308. I would not touch their ammunition with a ten foot pole.

However, so far I have yet to hear anything bad about their primers.

I've been using Wolf primers for .45 ACP and 9mm. They're good.

Just because it has Wolf on it, doesn't mean it sucks. Wolf rimfire match ammo is awesome. Wolf is importing the primers that were formerly imported by PMC. They're the same. David Tubb (read up if you don't know who he is) had such good results with them he bought 1 million of them to last him his remaining years. If your goal is low es and sd, try some wolf primers.
