Wolf primers
« on: February 04, 2010, 12:28:25 PM »
Anybody have any reason I should buy Wolf primers if they are in stock and at a good price?  I probably would go with something else, but availability still sucks around here.

I think I have decided on about 4.0 grains of Bullseye under a 115 g Barnes plated round nose in 9mm with the Wolf primers.

I don't know any reason for you not to use them.  Haven't heard anything bad.  But, at this point I'd take any primers I can get my hands on.  Sources here are still bone dry.

I've used Wolf primers and they are fine.  I still have a 10k or so left over.  ;)

I have tested Wolf primers and found they offer very consistent performance.  Similar standard deviations to CCI and Winchester.

I use them regularily in all the varieties they manufacture.

Gone through 200 primers, no problems so far. I have large pistol and large rifle primers in Wolf.

Thanks for the replies, that is good news since I have 3,000 of them sitting on my bench right now.

Just to update. I've have recent problems seating primers only on my Winchester .45 Colt brass. However, I suspect it is the brass versus the primer.

As I have no issues using Wolf on my Starline or Remington brass.

In case anyone cares, I loaded up 30 starting with 3.5 grains up to 4.2 grains of Bullseye.  They all went bang which is about all I can expect of a primer.

fwiw, I've run few a few thousand reloading 9mm & .38 with no problems.

They seem a bit harder than, say Federal, but no ignition difficulties.

I've got some small & large rifle set back. I hope to try them for 5.56 & 7.62x39 as soon as I can wrangle some free time.
