    Blazer Brass is my usual practice ammo. It's been very reliable for me.

    I have had excellent performance from alu cased ammo.
    Now the .45acp brass cased ammo is another story. I used it in a revolver [past posting] and recoil set back causes the bullet to pull out of the case some. Hasn't caused a problem yet, just concern.

    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.

    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.

    And I'm very appreciative of who I know.

    Mixed feelings

    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

    Same problem here with .32ACP Blazer Aluminum.
    Won't bother buying it again.
