    HI, got a quick question for you G30 owners, have you had any problems with Blazer Aluminum casing rounds? because I find them to be pretty cheap at Turner's out here ($18 for 50 rnds). Thanks!

    They should be cheaper than that. Yesterday, I paid $18 for brass Remington UMC at Dick's Sporting Goods. 10% off sale on their daily price of $20.

    I haven't actually shot any through my G30SF. I did however, just order a case (1,000) in 9mm for $189 on the internet. I would be shocked :shocked: if they caused your G30 any indigestion.

    Same here. But my dad got some CRAP 9mm from Cabellas that had the hardest primers I've ever experienced. He kept having fail to fires in his Sigma, so I ran the rejects thru my glock. They all fired. Then I loaded up a mag with fresh ones. 7 failed to fire first time thru. 6 of those fired the next run thru. 1 didn't fire till the fourth strike. My striker spring is just fine and my channel is squeeky clean. This stuff was just garbage.

    But I love the blazer aluminum when I can find it. Runs clean, shoots well.

    FWIW, I've run aluminum cased Blazer in a few calibers (.380, 9mm, .45. .38) in several different guns. Never had a problem with it, ever.

    It is clean and reliable stuff. One of my favorites.

    They run good in my Glocks. I think Glock uses the Blazer as a test load.

    My G30 will eat anything. No problems with Blazer either.
