Newly manufactured in the United States by CCI, this ammunition is great for target shooting, plinking, or range training. Each round sports a total metal jacket bullet atop a berdan-primed aluminum casing.
This product is non-corrosive and non-reloadable.
Video Transcript:Blazer is one of them many ammo brands under the ATK parent company, along with other well known labels like Federal, Spear, and CCI. Blazer is intended as a low cost range and training ammo, and is available in both brass and aluminum case varieties.
For this review, we shot some of the 45ACP Blazer Aluminum. The aircraft grade aluminum case is lightweight and very corrosion resistant. Although it's not reloadable, it functions just like brass cased ammo in most firearms.
Blazer Aluminum has been around since the early 1980s, and is a proven technology, and also a great cost saver for shooters who aren't interested in reusing their brass.
The load we shot for this video is a special round called Blazer Clean-Fire.. It features a 230 grain, lead core, total metal jacket bullet and a clean fire primer. The total metal jacket completely encases the bullet, unlike a traditional full metal jacket, which leaves the base exposed. That means there are a lot fewer lead particles being released into the air when the round is fired.
The Clean-Fire primer also contributes to a toxin free shooting experience. Most primers contain small amounts of lead and other heavy metals, which are released into the air when the rounds are fired. The Clean-Fire primer virtually eliminates all of these, leaving the area and your hands much cleaner.
The health risk of shooting normal ammo is minimal, but increases when you're shooting high volumes, especially in an indoor range. Blazer Clean-Fire ammo helps to minimize these risks.
Besides being cleaner, this load functions the same as any other Blazer ammo. Reliability was great in all of our test guns, and in my experience just about every pistol we've used with Blazer aluminum has eaten the ammo just like it was brass.
Accuracy was also pretty respectable, and we got a nice group just above our point of aim, using a Springfield Armory XDM pistol from the bench at 15 yards.
Blazer Aluminum Clean-Fire is a great value for a 45ACP load, and it's an exceptional choice for anyone who plans to do a lot of shooting on an indoor range.

Used the same ammo in my G19 and don't recall an issue. May just be this batch. I'll update and edit the review if I run into a similar situation with different ammo.
