Was at Wallyworld this evening and saw a box of 50 rounds of Blazer Brass 9mm FMJ 115 gr for 9 bucks. Anyone used this before? I typically use Winchester FMJ 115gr for plinking at the range.

Just curious if anyone has used it in their weapons before. I've got a Glock 19, and it seems to eat just about anything I've fed it.

No problems with the Blazer Brass in any of my pistols. Glocks, or SIG, 9mm, 40S&W, or 45acp. Yeah...Wal E World, and $8.97 a box of 50 here too. Better than WWB at $19.97 per 100ct box!

Well, I picked up a box just for a test. Hope to hit the range Wednesday. If it works, then hell, I'll save a few bucks from the Winchester.

Blazer Brass is pretty decent ammo. I've shot .380, .357, 9mm and .45ACP without a hitch. The aluminum cased Blazer can sometimes be sporadic in quality.

Just came back from the range. Gotta admit, I'm a little disappointed with the Blazer.

I emptied my mags that had winchester 115gr already loaded. Then, I loaded a 15 round mag and a 19 rd mag with the Blazer. I was all over the paper, with no consistency. Thought it might have been the 19 rd mag, so I squeezed off the rest, and loaded the 15 rd mag. Same issue.

After switching back to the winchester for the rest of my time there I was back into my usual swing of things.

So, was this a bad batch of ammo, or is the quality just that poor?

new range report

Well, I decided to give ole Blazer one last shot. Picked up a few boxes and headed to the range today.

I was MUCH more satisfied with the accuracy this time. So, I'm guessing either I just had a temporary 50-round handicap or simply picked up a box that was a little below the limits of quality control.

I've run nothing but Blazer Brass since Walmart started carrying it a couple years back. My Kimber feeds it perfectly and delivers it accurately enough for me to hit a paper plate sized steel at 50 yards.

We've used it in .40 - great ammo. No problems feeding in either my Sig or my wife's M&P. Seems to run a little cleaner than Winchester WB.

Blaser Brass

Great ammo. Shot two boxes of 50 with my glock 19 and returned to purchase the remaining 10 at a local walmart.
First off, welcome to the boards,NewShooter!! I roll most of my own ammo through my Dillon 550, but at those prices,quality, I probably should stock up on some more factory loads. You know you cannot have enough for when the Zombies come!! Right??:eek::eek: Bill

i just picked up a .40 and went strait to the walmarts and purchased .40 blazer brass,
my cougar 8040 was new never fired. the blazer brass didn't jam once, i only hit the can once out of 11 shots, but was most likely my aim with a new gun.

good price for ammo :)

I use Blaser Brass when I shoot 9mm for IDPA, and am usually first or second out of 20+ shooters. I even shot my .40 a few weeks ago for IDPA, using BB, took 5th out of 27th, having never used this pistol/ammo for IDPA before, I think that assures its quality.

Ususally I shoot my G20 10mm and my own handloads though.


Blaser brass is great ammo, I like it better than WWB.

I was able to find 10k rounds of it earlier this year at a walamrt in lexington KY, and bought every box of it. Took it home, sold half of it, and the other half is in safe #2.
