NO but I still prefer Brass.

10,000+ rounds of the stuff I've shot when they were selling it for $3.86/50 says its fine ammo. No problems at all. Last time I was at Academy it was $5.86 a box. If its on sale or they've lowered the price, I'll be there at lunch tomorrow stocking up!

Academy stores don't generally stock very deep, I often couldn't get 1000 rounds at a time without cleaning them out. I wouldn't count on being able to get a couple of thousand rounds at a time unless you call first to check stock. As far as I know they won't hold anything for you.

well the website says $4.87 but i called 2 stores and they say its $6.87. i should print out the webpage, go there and demand $4.87.

No harmful effects with it in my Taurus 24/7 or Glock 26. However, it will occasionally fail to extract out of the Glock. Taurus has had zero problems with it. Remember, it's non-reloadable. I use it if I'm somewhere where collecting my brass will be problematic.

new academy here in town - this is the best deal in 9mm that I know of...

I dont know about any other manufact., but Springfield says OK to blazer alum.

I'd say I've shot over 10K of the stuff...

And I'll keep shooting it.

If your gun doesn't have extraction problems with it you're good to go. However, it hasn't been that cheap at my Academy store in a long time. It's closer to seven bucks last time I checked.

I printed out the webpage and zipped down to my local Academy right at closing time.

Gun mgr agreed that it was a great price and had to make some calls to sell me at that $4.97/50 price. Seems it's a mistake. Limited me to ten boxes.

I'm headed out tomorrow to another Academy, CCI Blazer won't be this price for long.

it's a good quality ammo. works well in all my HK/Glock/Beretta, in 9, 40, and 45 variety.

I have no problems with Blazer aluminum, or brass. My Glocks shoot it just fine. Dogtown Tom, you got a good deal because the Academys all over the Dallas Metroplex went from $5.59 to about $6.69 per 50 for Blazer aluminum about a month ago.

CCI Blazer amuminum is very good, clean burning and cost effecient ammo.
I've used a lot of their 9mm and 45acp without a hitch.

Just wish their 9x18 ammo was priced simularly.

could they damage the extractors?I've run a ton of CCI aluminum cases through my CZ75, CZ40B and 1911s. No troubles at all.

All the CZ75 ever eats is CCI Blazer and S&B.

Buy one box and see how it shoots out of your pistol first.

Fixin to find out in about 2 hrs. Heading to the range with a buddy and 1k rounds of Blazer aluminum 9mm a Glock 19 and a CZ75

The web page you linked to does not appear to exist.

Looks as if they realized their problem and fixed it.

No cheap ammo for me. :mad:

Range Report.....we blasted through 1k rounds of blazer 9mm last night at NRA. My G19 never even hiccuped on the stuff. Towards the end my buddies TZ75 had 3 seperate FTE. Can't tell if it was ammo related, gun related or mag related....i teased him and said it was because his gun is a POS.....he didn't find it funny.

At any rate, shot fine for me, blast away....

Isn't the Monarch 9mm at Academy cheaper? That shoots just fine for me as well.

Blazer ammo is fine and does not cause issues in any of my firearms. I've used plenty of it in .45 and 9mm over the last 10 years or so.

Have not used it in semi-autos, but three years ago, Blazer aluminum case was all I could find in hollowpoints for my 44 Specials.

My two steel revolvers liked the aluminum cased stuff just fine. My Airlite S&W 396 (titanium cylinder) did not. Difficult extraction was the norm, from the first cylinder full. Brass cased stuff was the way to go in that one. So I guess my answer is: depends on your pistol.

PS: The price was right, too--I think $12.86 per box of 50. I believe it's well over $20 now. My 44 Specials are gone, and ammo cost is one reason.
