I don't think the Wolf ammo is corrosive, but I guess it's possible.

Anyway, all that corrosive ammo does is leave a thin film of potassium chloride (potassium salt) in the barrel. It attracts moisture. Unless your rifle is stored in a damp or high humidity area, or it gets wet, you'll probably have no corrosion problems with it.

Also, if you do get moisture corrosion, it will be quite obvious when you look down the bore or try to clean it. Red rust on the swabs.

Those Mosins have spent their entire lives, at least seventy years, shooting corrosive ammo, often not being cleaned regularly or properly, and they've survived pretty well.

Corrosive ammo is definitely something to pay attention to, but it's not necessarily the end of the world for a barrel.
