I had no problems putting a couple hundred rounds through my 1911. It seems to ricochet more than other brands but that was probably just bad luck.

I've put multiple hundreds of rounds through my CZ clone (Jericho 941) without an issue. As reliable and accurate as any other plinking/training ammo I've used.

Been using Blazer for years in 9mm and 45acp. Great stuff, good performance, and in my opinion, excellent quality. My only complaint is that the cost difference between it and it's brass counterparts are not that great any more, making it less of a value buy than a few years ago.
Proud to have served.

Just make sure you get ALL of the fouling off of the chamber walls. The finish on the alum. cases tend to stick to dirty chambers.

I've ran it through my S&W Bodyguard 380 and my Ruger SR9C with no problems at all. As a matter of fact I've never had a misfire or any type of failure ever with either gun.

No problems in my .40 or 9mm's. The only problem I have with Blazer Alu. is in my .357 revolver. It seems the cases swell and are hard to eject. Never have a problem with brass cases.

Will not feed in any of my Brileys but my G36 loves it. Works well in all my Hi-Powers and Glocks. Haven't tried it in my Shield yet.

I have used Blazer aluminum in both my .380 and 9mm with 0 problems. However, nothing but feed problems in .22 cal in my Beretta, Mark III, and Remington 22-A.

My only experience with Blazer has been with 9mm Largo, but it ran flawlessly through my Astra 400 and Bergmann-Bayard.

I've never had any issues with it whatsoever.
