    nice price... works fine, leaves shiny gun poop that needs a little extra cleaning effort.

    I've never used their .22 rounds. 9mm has worked in all my pistols. A couple of my friends have said they couldn't shoot the 9mm because their semi's wouldn't cycle right with it.

    I have used Blazer ammo before. It's not the best, I don't really like it, but sometimes that's all I can afford. I haven't used it in my .22 but I have used the .38 and .357 mag in my revolver.

    It has become my range bullet of choice in 9mm because of the reasonable price. Have probably put 4-5 thousand rounds of Blazer 9mm through my ruger, Glock, & beretta w minimal issues. My only comment is that there is a little extra cleaning to do after the range.

    Shot some Blazer through my Marlin 60, it shot great, was accurate and every round fired. It wasn't the 525 bulk pack, it was the 500 round brick of individual 50 round boxes.

    +1 for Boston. That's all I shoot through my ruger. I have tried many other brands for my 9 and my ruger seems to munch the blazer brass fmj up the best. No FTE or FTF. With 1k + through it.

    The 22lr blazer is the exact same as the very popular cci minimag. Cci =blazer. Its just a unplated bullet instead of the copper plating on the minimag. Otherwise exact same thing at a much cheaper price point.

    I have shot a lot of the 22lr Blazer. Good ammo. It has jumped dramatically in price so 525/$14 is a very good buy. Where did you get it? I would like to find some at that price as I am down to my last brick. I bought 12 bricks about 10 years ago for $7 ea. I will never see that price again.

    Farm & Fleet has it. Thanks for the info all. Took 4 of my sons to the range yesterday to shout or new Remigton 510 and our Beretta u22. They all had fun and wanted to shoot more. I used cci mini mag but the cost of blazer is really appealing.

    My .22 rifles don't care for the Blaser ammo, much preferring the faster Minimags.
    My Whitney Wolverine pistol loves the Blaser though, so I keep a couple bulk packs handy for it. My Stoeger Luger chokes on Blaser for some reason, while handling other types well.
    Depends on the particular gun.
