Does anyone else have problems with Wolf ammo?
I used Wolf .30cal in my Plainfield M1 and had numerous misfires,jams and seemingly underpowered rounds.I gave up shooting after 3-30rd mags.This is my first time using Wolf ammo.

Most folks say steer-clear of it in an M1-carbine. I think you have just came to that conclusion as well.

most of us will NOT use steel case ammo in our carbines. Some of us feel the steel is hard on parts and those parts are near and dear to us.

Well stated from both. I myself have never used steel case ammo, and have no plans to even try it in my carbines.
It's just not worth it. To hard on things from everything I have read. This site and others as well. Extractors for starters.
One other site put it in these words. Brass for American made, steel is for Russian, China, and other foreign made guns.

Ken, The only good thing if you can call it that is the price of the Russian made ammo. It is dirty, under powered, doesn't expand in the chamber properly as it's steel case and is hard on extractors. It also uses a 100 gr. bullet and not the standard 110 gr. Since it is dirty it leads to more jams and the need to frequently clean. You get what you pay for.

Aguila is ok. It is a little underpowered, but the brass is goo for reloading. S&B is good too. Stay away from Amerc. It isn't good and cases often split.

Both Seller&Bellot and PPU have very good feedback from all the reviews I have read. I went with Seller&Bellot myself as I've had good results with some of their other calibers. Using 110gr soft point through the new to me Plainfield and no issues but only in a hundred rounds or so at this point.
