Video Transcript:

CCI is one of the ammo brands under the ATK parent company which is the world's largest manufacturer of ammunition. Blazer is CCI's budget range and training ammo and is available both in aluminum and brass case varieties. Today we're going to take a look at Blazer aluminum in 45 ACP which has been in production since the early 1980s.

The 230 grain bullet is seeded in a case made from aircraft grade aluminum and utilizes a noncorrosive primer. There are not many companies making aluminum cased ammo, so sometimes people don't know quite what to make of Blazer aluminum. Just like brass, aluminum is much softer than the steel chamber of a firearm, so there's no risk of damaging your gun. Another cost saving measure of Blazer aluminum is the use of copper plating versus a traditional full metal jacket.

Plating uses a chemical process to adhere the copper to the lead core bullet. And the plating covers the whole bullet rather than leaving the base exposed like with a full metal jacket. Performance should be pretty close for either bullet. But it's not recommended they you use plated bullets with a ported barrel since the ports can sheer off the plating as the bullet exits the barrel.

Reliability with Blazer aluminum was great. I've never had any real problems with Blazer aluminum in any caliber. And for this test, the ammo ran great in all six of our test pistols with no feeding or ignition failures. With a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per second, the Blazer aluminum load is identical to the 230 grain, 45 caliber Blazer brass ammo.

The only difference is the case. So if you don't plan on keeping your brass for reloading, Blazer aluminum is a nice low cost alternative. Accuracy was pretty good with a nice ten shot group. We used a Springfield Armory XDM at 15 yards from the bench to do our test. Blazer is great, low cost, American made range ammo, especially for anyone who doesn't plan on keeping their brass.

Ammo worked perfectly so far, no jams or stove pipes, would buy again! Only gave it a four star rating for quality because you can't re load the cartridge like you can with brass. (Posted on 8/1/12)
Great value but..... Review by MU

Out of 1000 rds, found 6 that were up to 3/32" shorter than the rest. It's like the taper crimp or whatever it's called to seat the bullet never happened. It was fairly obvious while looking at the cartridges sitting in the plastic holder, lower than the rest. Seemed to be in 4 boxes in the same side of the case.
Just do a quick QC when ya'll get your ammo. Sorry, no lot #, already tossed the box. (Posted on 7/3/12)

Over the years I have shot a LOT of Blazer aluminum-case ammo in various calibers, and never had a problem with any of it.

In .45 ACP in particular, it's always been very clean, always given fairly decent accuracy, always given 100% reliability in the guns I've fired it in--Colt and Springfield 1911s, Springfield XDs, Glocks, SIGs, an Olympic AR carbine, and an old S&W revolver that used those little stamped sheet metal clips.

It's also normally pretty stoutly loaded, with very noticeable muzzle flash. Production lots vary but the last time I chrono'd any it was doing nearly 880 f.p.s. out of a 5" Springfield 1911, several years back. Cycling, extraction, and ejection are always very positive, bordering on "violent," but that's okay, you can't reload aluminum cases anyway.

It's good quality ammo, though I do sometimes wish it were still $8.97 a box at Wal-Mart. I also wish this stuff were still available with the old 200gr "flying ashtray" JHP. (Posted on 1/14/11)
