    Not bad if your gun will eject it. Some ejectors don't like the aluminum.

    Not a fan of the Blazer or Tulo crap.

    Probably OK for most guns; one of my .45 Springers didn't like it until the chamber lost its initial 'stickiness.'

    I have used it for many years in 2 different M&P's for 10's of thousands of rounds. Always works,no problems.Cheaper than brass and doesn't have any chamber damage problems that steel might have.

    Ok i bought one 50round box and i'll try it out and see how it cycles before buying more. For my shield. If i have an issue it has to be ammo related cause i havent had a problem with federal, remington, wwb, and a few others. Just too many opinions on steel cased. Even though its aluminum

    Has worked fine in every handgun I've owned, including my M&P's.

    I use Blazer Brass for the range. Same price where I buy it and never a problem.

    I have gone through atleast 500-600 rounds of it in .45acp and not one issue, just recently got case of it in 9mm on black friday and it runs fine in all my glocks.... its cheap and works fine.... some people think its not the best but its made by the same company that makes, Blazer brass, Speer lawman, Federal, American eagle, all come from.... CCI/ATK....

    My Glocks have eaten cases of it without issue. I used to pay $100 a case for 9 MM <Tears>

    I have a Ruger and they don't recommend steel case ammo. When I had an FNP it didn't care for the Blazer steel. Oddly I can buy Blazer Brass for the same price so I go with that option.

    I've never had any problems with Blazer aluminum.

    I think of Blazer as an inexpensive target round.

    Works just fine, personally I use whatever is cheapest. Blazer, Tula, Wolf, Silver Bear, you name it. For me, the less I worry about the range ammo I use, the better it seems to work. Shoot it like you stole it.
