While shooting at practice night at a local club I noticed one guy shooting Winchester steel in 9mm. He liked it.
Anyone else use steel in a Glock? The price is right at Walmart.

I've never used them. The three local ranges near to or in the city by me all prohibit steel-cased ammo. This is their way to prevent the use of steel core bullets on their back stops. Two of the three also prohibit cast bullets because of lead/environment concerns. The third allows cast bullets in .45 Long Colt only. Tried arguing that .44 Spec was a lighter slower bullet which would be less of a lead concern than .45 LC, but... . Steel cases will get you ejected from the range. Their range, their rules. Hopefully this will change as they become more prevalent and made by named manufacturers. Right now I think that they associate them with military surplus.

There is something about leaving brass cases on the ground that goes against me. I remember years back scrounging brass anyway I could, now shooting on outdoor ranges the brass just lays. Near brings tears to my eyes.

I use steel quite a bit in my Glocks absolutely no issues
I also use them in my ARs quite a bit

not too long ago you could buy 1000 rds or so really cheap
and also as a fat old guy I have large round magnets on a string I can clean up very easily and just throw the steel in the recycle bin

today the end of 2020 there is no cheap steel so no reason to buy
I also believe in general Wolf ammo is better than most people give it credit for
