Blazer 165gr for my glock 23 gen4

Does anyone know about the blazers 165 gr. Are they good for my gun? They are a lot cheaper than brass but i have been hearing about problems will the aircraft grade aluminum.

Your Glock will digest that Blazer just fine. You have nothing to be concerned about.

They're only cheaper in gun stores. If you buy Winchester White Box or Remington Green at Walmart, they'll be cheaper than aluminum Blazers, usually. If you buy online, you can beat Walmart.

They're perfectly fine, though. (Unless a specific gun recommends against them.)

They're fine. The aluminum cases aren't reloadable, at least I wouldn't try unless I were desparate, but they work just fine.

Steel cased stuff is fine too, it's a very mild steel they use so case expansion may not be *quite* as good as brass, but it still works fine and won't damage a properly designed gun.
Looks to me like only 5 out of 9 on the supreme court can read.
