True story and one that might sound familiar to anyone who has gone to fire off a few rounds: there is a local indoor shooting range near this reporter’s home that has a sign at the front counter that reads, “No Wolf Ammunition Allowed.”
It wasn’t that the gun shop/indoor range was trying to force customers to buy more expensive ammunition or that it was even trying to ban cartridges from Russia (that’s apparently President Biden’s job).
Rather, it was simply that Wolf’s bimetal jacket isn’t really safe for indoor shooting.
Like many indoor ranges across the country, this particular range uses a backstop constructed of steel, and like many indoor ranges, Wolf was banned. Now steel would seem to be strong enough to stop most bullets, so why was Wolf a problem?
