Only thing I'd run that **** ammo through is an AK. Spend the extra money for decent ammo. You can buy name brand quality ammo for $190-200 in 9mm all day long on the net, for 1k rounds. That's cheap. If you are looking at Russian ammo for cheaper than that, then you are the guy splitting a roll of toilet paper into 2 to try and save a nickel

I thought the P290 was built in New Hampshire?
But your right, other countries use steel cases as standard but in the US steel cases are disliked by many. I looked at my fired cases under a microscope and I can't see any evidence of a polymer coating being scraped or melted anywhere. This is a very soft mild steel so I really don't see how it can damage the hardened steel parts our guns are made of. People were alarmed when Blazer first came out with their aluminum cases but that has all quieted down.
I remember when Wolf did have problems when they first started coating the ammo with lacquer... that was to stop the rusting problem they were also having. Back then the melted goop was easily seen if you ran a gun hot. Then they changed to a more durable polymer which was said to solve the gunking problem, but the damage was done and I keep hearing about all the bad things steel cases are gonna do to your gun. Some of that may be true if you blast your AK as fast as possible thru multiple magazines till the hand-guards smoke. I wouldn't doubt there might be some residue issues of some kind then. But I don't think this is the case with slower aimed fire from a pistol. I don't normally use steel cased ammo as I said previously so I'm not intimately knowlegable about it but I'm not also adverse to using it, as long as I don't see lab test reports showing otherwise.
What I did notice however is that the recoil seems to be much snappier than normal US products and I know some of the foreign ammo is loaded to different standards than ours. Some could be closer to +P and that was what I was wondering - if Wolf is generally considered to be loaded hot and if there are known problems shooting it in the small framed guns. I know if you shoot 110 & 125 +P in a J frame your gonna shoot it apart eventually. I also know Sig says the 290 is +P rated and I imaging they mean in small to moderate doses. I also am under the assumption that I will want to shoot a few hundred rounds to break the little bugger in before being confident carrying it so I'm interested in doing that as cheaply as possible - then I can buy the high priced spread for use and practice in smaller quantities.
