#1 yes, you could do worse and you can do better
Blazer Brass is my usual practice ammo. It's been very reliable for me.
I use it in my .45 and my .40 for practice ammo and have had no problems. Accuracy is not great, but fine for close in work and good enough for practice out to 25 yds or so.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
Several hundred rounds in 40 S&W, from the ATK factory, in a Glock 22, all went bang, the steel plates I was shooting had a very bad day... Whilst I on the other hand had a very good day banging away at the plates.
I've shot the Al cased rounds in 9mm, .40S&W, and .45 with no problems and good (not great) accuracy.
The Blazer Brass cased rounds in .45 I received had some (about 10%) of the bullets pushed back into the cases, and I could push the bullets into the cases with my thumb. CCI replaced the case (with Al cased at my request) and threw in some extra boxes for my trouble. But I don't know if I'd buy the Brass cased in quantity again soon.
Hate to be the only nay sayer, but I had a lot of trouble with it. I found the OAL to be very inconsistent and therefore caused a lot of FTF's in my 1911's. Blazer's arent crimped at all so push back is also a major issue. Dirty, dirty, D-I-R-T-Y!
Magtech, all the way!
It's just so cheap! I'd like to shoot better quality and cleaner rounds but aside from Russian crap, you can't get as many rounds for as little. If I reloaded it might be a different story; I'd want to have real brass to save.

Well when I shoot it, I shoot it for free, so no complaints here.
Mom always said, "Its not what you know, its who you know..."
And I'm very appreciative of who I know.
In .32acp several one box was fine, then one box had FTF on 17 of 50 rounds. In .44spcl the 200 grain gold dots work great, use them for a home defense round. Probebly does not help, But I think their qualoity control is poor. luteai
No problems been great plinking ammo for me
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
very reliable ammo. makes great range ammo. also you can use it for carry ammo.
