The only pics I have are 20 feet. 9mm and 45 ACP. The "dot" in the first picture is 2 1/4" ID and the group is seven rounds from a 1911. the second picture is 17 rounds from a Glock 17.

Blazer Brass is one of my favorite practice rounds.

I have no problem with the Blazer small primer 230 ammo. Shoots fine for me. I buy when it is on sale and use for plinking. I don’t reload it. For the price I’d buy it.

I did cancel my Dick’s affinity account. I’ll never buy anything from them again.

No issues at all

here's a few, Brother Nitro
all at 20yrds off my cheap plastic $15 dollar MTM rest


















as you can see, obviously my loads in the last pic are clearly best.
BUT-BUT-BUTT.....all the other stuff is more than fine for most anything less than 20yrd + precision accuracy shooting


since Amerc ammo thankfully died, I can't think of any "bad" factory new ammo from major manufactures domestic and foreign

Like most that shoot a little, I have my "preferences" in factory new.
(and obviously prefer my own loads best)

But I rarely hesitate to take advantage of great price case sales on any factory new stuff ....even ditryazz Wolf and Tula


Having shot pret' near all the major brands foreign and domestic, the only noted issues was with Tula in 45..the last couple cases I shot, had 4 or 5 inert primers
and a minor annoyance with seating primers in Sellier & Bellot brass

They've all been pretty "OK" overall


Note, the above assumes ones' not shooting a finicky eater pistol.
Those can and do happen ...then ammo selection is a different ballgame


.L.T.A.

Thanks for all that Cap!
This will come in handy the next time there is a bit of bellowing from the gallery of peanuts about factory being as good as hand loaded!
One note of importance though. You are an accomplished shooter that has many tens of thousands of rounds under your belt. Your groups are well concentrated, and yet, there are the nuisance flyers that have a mind of their own on many of the factory offerings. I doubt that you were swatting mosquitoes whilst triggering those rounds!!
Now, (here’s where you’re right) take a newb that just bought his “best in the world Glock” and he’s out firing away with any of the examples that you show. Of course this is freehand from the same distance because he doesn’t know what a rest is. The ammo he is shooting won’t amount to a hill of beans of difference because he won’t even hit the paper in the first place!
I’m glad there are these guys though, they have to learn and cheap factory is how they can get there.
You have helped remind me that I should throttle back on my criticism of the “junk”, it does have a purpose!! Thanks again for posting the pics, that may come in handy!

Always has to be one wise acre! Usually it’s me being a smart butt though!

This!!! Why a gun owner wants to give business to anti-gun Dick's is beyond me.

speaking of...

dig this

From the rest, my Gold Cup is mechanically more accurate than my Springfield Loaded.
Both are set up essentially the same

But off hand precision accuracy shooting, I shoot tighter groups with the Loaded.
Not a big ole difference, but enough to be consistent and measurable

..L.T.A.

Oh yeah, I’ve seen that plenty. Just a teensy difference in muscle memory/strength that is triggered (or not) by one or the other. A silly example is the Desert Eagle I just picked up. My hands and arms have no idea what to do with that thing. Recoil is completely different and the grip is like a turkey leg! Sure is fun though!

Keep yer shirt on..... hahahahaha!

The place is a few minutes from me and the price seemed good. Target Sports USA got my $$ and the S&b ammo works just fine for my PM-45.
