Russian Steel Case Ammo Explanation: ak47.
Wolf Wolf is an American importer of ammunition. The companies from which they import are not limited to Russia (Wolf Gold .223 is Taiwanese M193). Older Wolf ammo was sourced from Tula and Ulyanovsk but their current production steel case is from Barnaul and Klimovsk.
The first Soviet military production 7.62x39mm cartridge was designated the M43, spec’d out with a 123-grain steel core and copper-plated boat tail bullet along with a Berdan-primed steel case. Most of the domestically manufactured commercial ammo in this guide use brass cases and Boxer primers, while the former Eastern Bloc churns out pallet after pallet of steel-cased and Berdan-primed ammo.

Steel cased ammo is safe to use in modern firearms because the steel used in the case is very soft. It is much softer than the steel used to make gun barrels and actions. Not only is the steel a “soft” steel but it is also “annealed” or softened via heat treatment. This process makes the steel pliable so that it will expand easily and seal the gun chamber when the cartridge is fired.
The Forged Winchester line is fine but DO NOT use Wolf, Tula or any other ammo that uses bimetal jacketed bullets. These are steel jacket bullets with an extremely thin copper plating. The copper is gone in the first inch of the barrel as the projectile travels down the bore. I’m including a link from Lucky Gunner about an extensive test they did. The result? After 10,000 rounds the barrels.
