    Anybody used Wolf Primers? I see a sale on them for $91 for 5000. Compared to all the others; this is very reasonable. Ed

    I shot about 100 out of my .45 and had no problems with them. I have some loaded in .38's but have not had time to shoot them yet.
    Shot 25 209's and didn't have any problems but the dimple from the firing pin was not nearly as deep as the ones in the Federal factory shells I shot at the same time. Haven't tried to reload these fired hulls yet with non-wolf primers yet to see if they do anything with the diameter of the primer pocket. Micrometer says the batch I had were exactly the same as the CCI's.

    The question is, does anyone have loading data for them? Could anyone even venture a guess at one might expect pressure wise? $91 per sleeve sounds great until you factor in the cost of having someone do a little velocity and pressure testing for you. That's around a minimum of $25 per load you wish to use/test. Still not a bad deal if they work in all climates and are consistent enough.

    If you are worried about pressure, I would use Fed 209A loading data, that's the hotest primer on the market. I was in a gun store the other day and Win 209s were $200 a sleeve. HMB

    200 is ridiculus!

    I would load wolf all day and night before I would spend 200 on wins.

    Just as HMB said. If you are afraid of high pressuers load the Fed data.

    I would venture to say it would be in the Rio category which I find is med/high.

    I use the Rio data now but I used the Fed data before the Rio data was published. I think they are pretty close.

    Where are the Wolf primers? East coast, West Coast.

    Anyone know if Richland Shooter supply carry them? Its in PA.

    Thanks

    I was at the Tulsa gun show and they were selling Wolf primers for $95 for 5ooo all taxes included..they are made in Russia..they have a sealed flash hole that apears to be plastic..not like other primers that have paper over the hole..they said they were close to Winchester for reloading data..I have shot onethousand and wish I would have purchased more..
