What sort of ammo are we talking about? Just about anything you purchase from a typical retailer should be safe. In theory, steel cased ammo may accelerate wear on the extractor. Realistically, it probably isn't going to be a big deal. I've never shot commercial reloads, so I can't speak to their quality or safety. Aluminum cased Blazers should be fine. Though I never thought they were terribly cheap, compared to say, WWB.
Accuracy can get a bit squirrely at the low end of the ladder. My XD hated Wal-Mart Federal but groups closed right up with WWB.
