Hey all, we here at True Shot Academy are going to go over Wolf. The company is a prominent supplier of ammunition for all types of shooters. Our goal with this blog post is to provide a brief overview of the company while also delving into some of their product offerings, traits, and features. Without further ado, let’s talk about Wolf and their ammunition.


What is Wolf?

Wolf is a brand which has been around since 2005. The brand maintains a domestic presence in Placentia, California and is well-known for importing a wide variety of ammunition. The brand originally mainly sourced loadings from Russia, but ultimately had to get ammunition from other places and get creative with sourcing due to increased sanctions. The company has since expanded their offerings beyond ammunition and currently provides things such as components, gear, and even imported upper receiver groups.


Where is Wolf Ammunition Made?

Ammunition made under the Wolf brand has been produced in a number of locations. Many Wolf loadings were produced in Russia by the Tula Cartridge Plant until 2009. The brand has also imported ammunition made by other brands under the Wolf name. For example, Eley Limited rimfire ammunition from England and Turkish produced 9mm Luger from Ozkursan have been imported and sold under the Wolf brand. Loadings in the company’s Wolf Gold line, such as their .223 Remington offerings, have been produced in Taiwan. Simply put, Wolf ammunition is produced in many places and imported under the Wolf brand name.

Product Offerings

There are a variety of ammunition product lines that are sold under the Wolf brand. These product lines include pistol, rifle, shotgun, and rimfire ammunition offerings. These loadings come in many forms such as full metal jacket (FMJ), JHP (jacketed hollow point), and soft point (SP) form to name a few.


  • Wolf Performance – This line features steel casings and offers both pistol and rifle loadings. While the steel casings utilized for most of these loadings are of the traditional type, Wolf also offers brass plated steel case loadings in this product line. Notably, one can acquire brass plated steel case 9mm Luger ammunition and traditional steel case .223 Remington and 62×39 ammunition. These loadings can be had with FMJ and HP projectiles.


  • Wolf Polyformance – Like the Wolf Performance line, these loadings also utilize steel casings. What sets these loadings apart from the Performance line is the fact that these casings feature a polymer coating to help facilitate smooth chambering. A variety of pistol and rifle cartridges are available in this product line. Calibers such as 9mm Luger, 45×39, .300 Blackout, and .40 Smith & Wesson are represented by this product line. Even more obscure and harder to find calibers such as .30 Carbine are available in this product line. These loadings feature FMJ. SP, and HP projectiles.


  • Wolf Military Classic – This product line features a polymer coating like the Polyformance product line does while also providing authentically loaded military calibers. Some of these loadings, such as the 62x54r Extra Match feature brass casings. The rest of these offerings feature steel casings. Pistol and rifle loadings are available in the Wolf Military Classic product line. Calibers such as 9mm Makarov, 5.45×39, 7.62×39, and .223 Remington are available in this product line. Popular milsurp cartridges are also available in the form of Military Classic loadings. These offerings are available with projectiles like FMJ and HP bullets.


  • Wolf Gold – These loadings from Wolf feature brass casings, setting them apart from the other loadings offered by Wolf. This product line covers both pistol and rifle calibers in modern and vintage loadings. The Wolf Gold line of products features popular military surplus calibers such as .303 British, 7.5×55 Swiss, 8mm Mauser, and 62x54r. Modern contemporary cartridges such as 9mm Luger, .223 Remington, .308 Winchester, and .45 ACP are among the calibers represented by this line. Pistol loadings in this line feature FMJ, HP, JHP, and SJHP projectiles while rifle loadings feature FMJ, SP, and match HP projectiles.


  • Shotshells – Wolf offers a variety of shotshells in addition to the other ammunition they provide. These shotgun loadings are available in 12 gauge, 20 gauge, .28 gauge, and .410 bore. Wolf’s shotgun loadings encompass many use cases and types of loadings. Target loads, bird loads, buckshot, and rifled slugs are available in this product line. Simply put, the loadings offered by Wolf cater to a wide variety of use cases and shooters.


  • Rimfire – Wolf’s rimfire offerings come in the form of .22 Long Rifle loadings. These loadings feature brass casings and 40 grain lead round nose projectiles. Vihtavouri powder is utilized in these rimfire loadings to facilitate a clean powder burn. Both match grade loadings boast a velocity of 1050 feet per second (FPS) and are manufactured for Wolf by Eley.


Mainly Known for Their Steel Cased Ammunition

The brand Wolf typically evokes imagery of steel cased ammunition in Soviet metric calibers. This is due in part to the wide variety of 5.45×39 and 7.62×39 ammunition available from Wolf prior to the many sanctions which have been implemented in the last decade or so. While the brand offers many steel case and brass plated steel case loadings, Wolf also offers a variety of brass case loadings as well. Simply put, one will find steel case and brass case ammunition from Wolf.


Is Wolf Ammunition Reloadable?

Wolf utilizes brass casings in some of their loadings. These brass case loadings will be more friendly to reloaders than their steel cased offerings which are harder on reloading tools. It should also be known that Wolf loadings can utilize either Boxer or Berdan primers depending on the caliber and specific loading. Boxer primers are more conducive to reloading than their Berdan counterparts as they follow consistent sizing specifications. Berdan primers tend to be inconsistently sized and may require more work from a reloader to replace and reprime.


Is Wolf Ammunition Corrosive?

Loadings under the Wolf brand utilize either Berdan or Boxer primers. This is dependent upon the caliber and where the particular loading was made. Most Boxer primers are non-corrosive while most Berdan primers tend to be corrosive. The keyword here is “most” as there are exceptions with both primer types. When it comes to Wolf ammunition, one will find that both the Berdan and Boxer primers they utilize are non-corrosive in nature. This means that shooters can shoot Wolf ammunition with confidence and not have to worry about corrosion occurring.
