    I don't think it would hurt anything to use them.

    Wolf ammo isn't going to break your guns. It's not the best ammo available, but it's not destructive.

    It's dirty and doesn't always feed well because of the steel cases, which aren't as 'slick' as brass. Otherwise it's perfectly fine to shoot.

    Is it lacquer coated (green) or polymer coated (grey)?

    It's fine I shoot it on occasion out of my Ruger BH revolver,it's a bit dirty and being steel case it doesn't expand like brass to seal the chamber as tightly which will allow some gas blow by and carbon buildup in the chamber,regardless of if it's poly or lacquer coated.

    Just make sure you clean your chamber good before you switch to brass case ammo so you don't get a FTE cased by a jammed case in the chamber. The Wolf 115 gr. FMJ shoot pretty nice out of my Ruger BH group wise,I shoot reloads all the time now for about half the price of the wolf but I would use it in a pinch.

    The steel used in the combloc ammo is mild steel compared to the extractor in your pistol,it may wear it more over a long period or time than brass cases would but shooting a couple boxes or putting some back for a rainy day want be a problem.

    If you are only aiming at LARGE targets, and like spending all evening scrubbing your weapond clean, shoot it it wont hurt much.

    Personally I think I would regift it to someone I dont really like.

    It's a bit dirty but nothing you can't clean up,I've seen some cheap American stuff thats about as bad. As far as a large target needed,maybe so if your a lousy shot. I got better groups with the Wolf than I did with CCI Blazer Brass.

    Being that it is steel cased ammo I was worried more about the extractor as someone brought up than any thing else .btw it is the gray polymer and I have shot a few boxes of the cci and they have to be the dirtiest around . As far as cleaning goes a little field stripping a rag and some of my old military cosmolene oil will clean it up real nice .thanks for all your responses think we will warm up the sig with it tomorrow . ps still thinkin bout the candy apple red toenails back in the general discussion :D GUNS4LIFE
