    I have a G19 and I was picking up some Blazer ammo for target and IDPA style shooting. Blazer aluminum was $10 a box, compared to $12 for Brass.

    Are there any concerns with shooting Blazer aluminum through my G19?

    How does the aluminum and brass compare in these areas?
    -Recoil
    -Accuracy
    -Any long term negative impact on gun

    I've shot 9mm Blazer by the case when I used to be able to get it for $100 + tax. Never had a problem.

    If you don't need the brass for reloading purposes, there's no reason at all not to buy Blazer aluminum. I buy it by the case in various calibers.

    I've shot about 900 rounds of 40S&W 165 & 180-not one problem
    Consistent and accurate
    It's not LOLLY POP ammo either
