The Blazer line of ammo is part of the CCI Speer Brand. Along with Federal and several other brands, they make up the ATK family of ammo products. The Blazer line is some of the most popular and affordable US-made ammo on the market. We got a chance to try out a whole value pack of their 22 long rifle loader.
The Blazer round features a brass cased 22 lead round nose. With 525 rounds per box, you get a ton of shooting at just pennies per round. Each lead bullet is covered in a thin coat of wax, which acts as a lubricant. You might often associate lead-tipped ammo with dirty ammo, but this Blazer load has a clean burning propellant that doesn't leave much powder residue behind. The 40 grain bullet exits the muzzle at around 1,235 feet per second. That classifies it as a high-velocity round.
Despite the spotty reputation of both 22 long rifle ammo and the lead round nose bullets, we experienced better than average reliability in the six test guns that we used for this ammo. We did have one or two stove pipe ejection failures, but overall, the ammo fit consistently without getting hung up on the feed ramps, and there were no light primer strikes. With the temperamental nature of rimfire guns and ammo, your results may vary, but for our test, reliability was admirable over a variety of different firearms.
Accuracy was respectable for bulk pack ammo. We shot a 10-round group from our benchrest at 50 yards using a Stock Marlin 795 rifle with a low power optic. Our group wasn't exactly impressive, but was relatively consistent, and the ammo performed good enough to be a dependable plinking load.
For economical and reliable shooting, you don't have to look any further than the Blazer bulk pack. Each box has enough rounds for hours of fun, and you'll probably spend a lot more time actually shooting than clearing malfunctions.

I have fired over 5000 rounds of Blazer through my 2 10-22's, my Mark III and a Remington 40XB. 0 (zero) jams or misfires since I started using this ammo.
After building a custom 10-22 I bought about 20 different types of 22lr ammo to accuracy test with. Without exception this ammo fired the tightest groups and averaged 1265fps. over my chronograph. I got smaller than dime size 10 shot groups at 50 yards, and at 100 yards the typical group could be covered with a nickel.
Best group with this ammo so far came using my Rem. 40XB which was a .367" 10 shot group @ 100 yds.
I will be ordering at least 2 of the 5250 round cases soon. It also does a pretty good job on Coyotes at 75 yds. 4 clean headshot kills in the last week. Very good performance, very little powder or lead fouling in any of my rifles or handguns.
My Rugar MKII is very picky but it went right thru 300 rds of this ammo no problem at all, also had my 10/22 with me and that didn't have a issue either. I won't be wasting anymore money on other brands for my .22's.
About that Kimber .22 Converter...
These cartridges jam about every 200 rounds in my wife's Kimber Custom II .45/.22 LR converter kit. Kimber does NOT recommend CCI Blazers for the converter--Kimber DOES recommend CCI Mini-Mag round nose .22 LRs, which cost more than CCI Blazers per round. However, compared to .45 rounds the Mini-Mags cost about 1/4 as much as the least expensive Russian--made .45 230 gr cartridges.
If you use the converter a lot, you may want to try swapping out the Kimber's #20 hammer spring for a #17. The hammer resists the the slider less, but I've read that I should expect faster wear on the slider and the recoil spring if I switch back to .45 cartridges.
These Blazer round nose .22 LRs jam about once per thousand rounds in a Marlin 795 auto-loader; hollow points jam more frequently. I have only 6000 rounds of CCI Blazer round noses left, so it's time to get more. LuckyGunner has a great price on .22 LR Blazers and snappy delivery.
Good product. Great value. My 1951 High Standard Victor is very fussy about what ammo it eats, because this semi-auto handgun does not have a feed ramp. High Standard Manufaacturing Company currently recommends only CCI standard velocity ammo. CCI Blazer

run 2 boxes
shot 525 rounds without cleaning the gun, not one jam. 2nd box one misfire. This is really nice ammo lead does build up though. You need to be right on, clean every 100 rounds or so. The Federal value pack is junk compared to this stuff. I mostly shoot the 22/ mark 3 targets or 45/22 same gun basicly blazer so fare top of the line ammo.
Works fine for me
In my Ruger 10/22 I have had no FTF's or FTE's out of 1000 rounds. Love that CCI stuff. I have a supply of Mini Mags and CCI Tactical but I use the Blazer 22lr for a long day of just "plinking" around because it is less expensive.
The BEST by far for the price
Jams every time Review by Jim - check your rifle.
This is the best 22 LR ammo for the price hands down. I go though 10,000 rounds a year in my S&W M&P rifle and pistol, AR 22 Conversion and my S&W 22a pistols. I will get an occasional FTF or FTE but not near as many as with other 22 LR ammo. It's as dirty as any other 22 LR ammo but feeds better because of the lead bullet. I clean everytime I shoot so I've never experienced a decrease in accuracy from the lead. I buy this and only this brand of 22 LR and recommend it to all my friends. When they bring that cheap remmington or winchester bulk box crap they end up shooting mine and buying CCI Blazer the next time.
This amo is cheep, i would not take this amo hunting with me. There is much better amo there. This amo broke my reminton 597. Now I would eather pay as much as the gun is worth to fix it or get the Henery leaver action H001 I getting the Henery. Pay the extra five bucks people.
greatest bulk pack ever.
I purchased a smith and wesson m&p 15-22 a couple years ago. over the course of ownership i have tried every ammo variety out there. this gun eats whatever i feed it however it especially loves anything CCI these bullets are great as you can get the cci quality for 1/2 the price of other cci ammo such as the mini mag.
Great Buy and dependable rounds
I have always loved the CCI round
it can be very versital in hunting and storage
It is always a great idea to look ahead to the future with might be our number one concern for 2012
ammo will sky rocket about mid 2012 due to all the predictions of what could happen to our world.
I want to be prepaired if for some chance the power goes out for months perhaps years and the prisons release millions of prisoners because they can no longer take care of them.and that will be the case if the power goes out for many years..you will have about 1 million walking the streets to take what you have to survive.
please do not think this is a joke.
they laughed at Noah while he build that ark.
see Utube for all that could happen in 2012 and you would worry about your protection then.
My Walther P22 is very fussy with ammo...it doesn't like ammo that is copper plated. This CCI Blazer ammo, because it is not plated, works flawlessly, but a lot of lead is left in the barrel. I believe due to this excessive leading, the accuracy is affected.
I consider this to be good ammo for the price, but you do lose consistent accuracy.
Have a 223 M-4, add the 22 LR Bolt & Shoot Cheap
If you own a M-4 / 223, purchase the 22LR Bolt for it and shoot ALL DAY long using this ammo.
The 40 gr is perfect for the M-4 223/22LR bolt addition.
Buying the additional Bolt was ine of the best purchase's I ever made. I can practice w/ my M-4 but at 22 LR price's..
great value 22LR
You can't beat these for value AND performance. Shoot hundreds of rounds through my S&W 22A with no problems. Accurate and relatively clean. A great option for throwing alot of rounds down range for little money.
Can't beat the price
Shot 1000 rounds with 5 FTF's using a Ruger Mk III 22/45. Not bad for the price. I also stripped and cleaned after each 500 rds. Pretty clean burn compared to the rem bullets.
With the soft lead bullets, you will need to make a couple of passes with a bore snake to clean and protect rifling but that's with all soft bullets. For the price, can't be beat.
Love the CCI Blazer, Great Ammo at a Great price.
Ordered the Blazer .22 Ammo from Lucky Gunner and received it in record time.. Very pleased with the super fast service. I like the CCI Blazer because it works flawlessly in my CZ452, Marlin 60, Beretta Neos, and my favorite of all the Buckmark Plus. The groups are almost as tight as the higher priced Ammo. I can get one inch groups and and sometimes less at 50 Yds and I haven't been shooting very long.
I highly recommend the CCI Blazer because of the quality, accuracy, and low price.
So far so good
This is the first "bulk pack" .22LR that I have ever used. I have always been somewhat concerned regarding the performance. So far I have shot about 400 rounds using 3 different guns (2 auto loaders and one revolver). The majority has been through my MkIII Ruger (6 7/8 barrel). With that gun there have been NO issues and it has never failed to load or eject. With a Buckmark Micro Bull, I have had some ejection issues (less than a handful) but, I think it is my Buckmark rather than the ammo.
Blazer 22 LR
I've been wanting to target practice with 22LR, but it's hard as all get out trying to find it. Ever try target practice with a Gamo? That's what I was reduced to. Thankfully I found this, and quickly loaded five banana clips. Good ammo, but I wasn't happy about the packaging. Two boxes were unsealed, and there were some rounds in the shipping container. There may have been some lost in transit.
