Default Ammo question

Can you shoot the CCI Blazer Brass ammo out of a standard/factory Glock setup? Thanks

My Glock ate whatever I put in it. I like the Blazer (wish I had some). PPU is the only "bad" handgun ammo I have used (so far), nasty dirty filthy stuff, but still works.

Yes- why not? Standard jacketed bullet, standard brass cartridge case.

The only thing you particularly have to avoid with Glocks is unjacketed lead bullets. The hexagonal rifling in stock Glock barrels does not work well with lead.

Reloads are what people generally say not to shoot if anything

Every gun maker out there disclaims reloaded ammo- that is their lawyers talking.

Glocks (as he said right up there) use a different style of rifling. They should not fire unjacketed lead bullets. But the Blazer is a jacketed bullet.

Left to right- lead bullet (truncated cone) jacketed lead bullet, jacketed lead hollow point bullet. All 3 are 9mm Parabellum.
