Where does 9mm Blazer Brass rank?




Read some mixed reviews but mostly good for the Blazer Brass ammo.

But unable to determine where one would rank this ammo.

Higher than Wolf but lower than Federal?
Is this considered great "plinking" ammo for the price?

I like it, just as accurate as Wally World Federal.

I don't know about reloading it but I would say its just as good as Federal or Winchester white box.

Good ammo and the brass reloads just fine.

I'd imagine Blazer ranks it number 1.

When I sent my sig 938 in, sig returned it with a blazer brass box top (suggesting they ran a box through it) and said it functioned fine. One of my complaints was it wouldn't run WWB.

Its pretty good ammo IMO and it runs a lot cleaner than most of the "el-cheapo" stuff.

No problems with it brass or aluminum cased for that matter. CCI/Blazer makes good stuff IMHO.

Atk owns federal and CCI. Blazer brass, champion, and independence are the same stuff in 9mm. AE would be a step up. I like it all better than recent WWB.

My guns like Blazer Brass just fine. I would rank it right there with Federal and WWB for plinking. I never run steel cased ammo so I cannot compare it to Wolf...

Great prices and runs fine. Palmetto State Armory has a great price right now on it.

near or at the top in clean burning
Much cleaner than WWB and Fed Champ and especially Fed American Eagle
(one of the dirtiest ammo I shoot besides Tul and Blazer aluminum)

in most of "my" pistols ...accuracy is on par with Fed, but a little less accurate than WWB.(note; i can only tell when shooting from a rest)

brass is thinner than Fed and Win, but holds up well to many reload cycles, though the primer pocket gets worn/lose before Fed and Win (my preferred brass for reloading)

Bullet set back on chambering is the number one concern with BB.
so don't chamber a rnd multiple times or the bullet will set back 30-40 thousandths or more by the third chambering (if top rnd in a full mag)


..L.T.A.

Blazer Brass is excellent stuff. Iíve put almost 500 rounds of it thru my 2 month old 1911. Clean burning stuff. Couldnít find any last time I ordered, so I bought 500 rounds of PMC in .45. Dirty stuff. Just ordered a case of Blazer Brass in 9mm. Next time I find some in .45 ACP at a good price, Iíll snatch it up.

It barely runs my compact 9mm 1911, meaning it is inconsistent in power to run the slide at full energy. It is a tight gun, all steel and likes hot ammo.
