Newly manufactured target or plinking ammunition with boxer-primed aluminum casings. This American made ammunition is great for training and target practice with your 9mm handgun!
Video Transcript:CCI makes a lot of great, well-known ammo like the Speer Gold Dot or Speer Lawman. They also make the Blazer line of ammo that comes in either a brass case or an aluminum case. And that's what we want to talk about now, is the Blazer 9mm aluminum case, full-metal jacket ammo.
The ammo I tested is a 9mm 115 grain. It's got a lightweight aluminum case. It doesn't really seem to function a whole lot differently from a brass case, it just means you can throw a few more rounds in your range bag without weighing yourself down a whole lot.
I tested the ammo in several different 9mm pistols, and it functioned great in all of them. I didn't have any problems with feeding or reliability. I also did an accuracy test from the bench at about 15 yards. It was reasonably accurate, not what I'd call match accurate. But it was consistent and definitely accurate enough for practice or for plinking.
Since the case is aluminum and not brass you can't reload it, but if you're not someone who reloads, then why spend the extra money on the brass you're just going to throw away? Overall, Blazer aluminum represents a great value for people who like to shoot a lot but don't reload.
