    I am new to reloading and new to The Highroad Forum. I have a question about reloading CCI Blazer 45ACP Brass. Is it possible to reload this brass and any problems I may experience if I try to reload it?
    Any information will be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Welcome to THR, ruger1228.

    The aluminum Blazer cases should not be reloaded but the brass Blazer cases are reloadable.
    Do you have any reloading tools yet?
    Feel free to ask questions, as there are some very knowledgeable people here at this site.
    Also, if you read some of the stickies at the main menu, they may help in the transition to safe reloading.

    Yup, I've reloaded .38 Spcl and 9mm Blazer brass and it reloads nicely.

    Yep. The Blazer Brass brass cases I have used in .38 SPl, 9MM, .40, & .45 have worked just fine.

    Welcome to THR

    There is a great "sticky" at the top of the Reloading forum that is a great source of info.

    Browse around, then come back and ask questions. Somebody here knows the answer, or can get it.

    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome and the information provided.
    Yes, I have got some reloading equipment. I bought a Hornady LnL press and a set of RCBS carbide dies for 38/357 and 45ACP. I picked up an RCBS 5-10 scale and also have a digital scale from Midway USA
    I started out reloading 45 ACP and was having problems with the rounds chambering. I talked to a friend at work who reloads and he suggested I pick up a Lee carbide crimp die. Since I started using that die, I have not had any chambering problems in my 45 pistol.
