Blazer Ammo

Quick question - is Blazer ammo decent range/plinking ammo? The local Gander Mountain has a pretty good sale going on for Blazer 9mm 115 grain and 45 230 grain ammo. I assume it can be reloaded?

Thanks much.

Blazer or blazer brass? The non brass is aluminum cases.

I have seen lots of both shot. Ran good for plinking. I assume e you are running it in a glock.

Blazer is plinking/range ammo.

I really miss the days of the aluminum 9mm for $3 for 50rds........

I've only shot Blazer Brass but it's always been GTG.

Regular Blazer (in aluminum cases) is fine for Glocks if you don't mind the non-reusable "brass".

Blazer is skank ammo. But it will do for the range. I wouldn't reload their cases. But I'm sure some do.

What others said. Blazer Brass is pretty good and definitely for range use. Blazer aluminum ain't bad but no reloading. Good for range use. I've used quite a bit of it and no problems I remember with either type.

It's fine for range use IMO. I use both the brass cased and the aluminum.

before you buy from gander, go to www.gunbot.net and check prices. tropgun is having free freight this weekend and targetsportsusa has free freight on case quantities.

It's the same brass as CCI with a different headstamp. Why not reload it? I have many of them that I reload.

I've shot plenty of Blazer Brass ammo through 9mm and .45ACP pistols. I have yet to have any issue related to ammo. Same thing with Blazer Aluminum, though I haven't seen Blazer Aluminum in a few years now...though the new Federal Aluminum looks suspiciously like the Blazer Aluminum.
