    My experience with Blazer, this specicific ammo and weight. It jammed every two or five rounds. I was having three different failers. Stovepipe, double feed, failer to cycle and failer to extract. I suppose it was the weight of the ammo. But this is enlightening

    That looks like a die was processing some .380 Auto (often called 9mm short) and it got in the wrong box. Oops! Hey, FYI. My 1st generation G17 and 2nd generation G19 doesn't like this brand of ammo. Aluminum or brass case. Going back to the 1980's the 9mm 115grn aluminum cased stuff malfunctioned way too often. Failure to extract or chamber in many cases. The aluminum case was the issue. My M-11 ate it up. Flash forward to 2019, I bought 1,000 rounds of brass cased 124grn. Averaged about one failure to extract per magazine, both G17 and G19 Glocks. Sons 4th generation G19 ate it up. Never had an issue with GECO which has a heavier casing and smoother casing and smoother bullets. The side walls of the GECO are thicker which is where the weight is and it appears the copper content is higher in the GECO than the CCI Blazer brass. Never recall an issue with Federal or UMC as well in any variety, 9mm, 10mm, .45 ACP.

    Dangerous condition. Did you inform the seller or manufacturers? If not, that might be part of the problem?

    The term you are looking for is seating depth. Because it is always in the lower right corner of the try, I suspect the package got smashed somehow.

    Everybody is always talking about ammo being good for plinking or the range implying it's not good enough for what? Why is this ammo only good for plinking and the range? It's shoots a slug and the right velocity; what more is required to make quality ammo?

    1.go through all 350. 2. Put thoughts together. 3. Do a tiny bit of research. 4. Then decide if makes a decent video topic as you would likely have come to same conclusion as every one else. Now you have a deceptive product attack title on your you tube thumb.

    You got a box of ammo that was squished in storage. Someone stacked it wrong.
    The pressure of those deep seated rounds will be enormous, maybe almost twice normal. A 1/10" deeper seating can make pressure hit 60,000 cup in the 9mm..

    Lol. I got a really good deal on one of these 350 count boxes about six months back. After ordering it I watched your video and was really worried. When it arrived I was really happy that the box showed no damage and I opened it up looking to see if all the cases were at the same height when… Wooosh! 350 rounds hit the floor as the back end of the Box gives out. 🤣 I was also at my office, so my co-workers peaked in and now think I'm crazy. I'm all for good prices on ammo but I would definitely hesitate before buying Blazer brass in this Packaging again.

    "BANK OF AMERICA WILL "BLACKBALL" GUN MANUFACTURES"- THIS IS THE UGLY TRUTH OF GLOBALISM WHEN CORPORATIONS ASSUME THE FREEDOM TO CONTROL OUR FREEDOM, OUR LIVES AND OUR RIGHTS GUARANTEED BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
    GLOBALIST ARE HELL-BENT ON CONTROLLING EVERYONE IN OUR NATION BUT HAVE LITTLE CHANCE AGAINST OUR FREEDOM-LOVING AND WELL-ARMED PATRIOT CITIZENS, AND SO IN COLLUSION WITH THE ANTI-GUN DEMOCRATS OF CONGRESS, THEY MUST FIRST TAKE OUR GUNS BY ABOLISHING OR SEVERELY DIMINISHING EVERY AMERICAN'S INALIENABLE RIGHT TO KEEP & BEAR ARMS GUARANTEED BY THE SECOND AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.
    WHAT PART OF THE WORD "INALIENABLE" DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND?
    And so, we must blackball, boycott, verbally admonish, and expose via 'ThatTube', Twitter, and every other media available, Bank of America and those wishing to deny us our rights!. "Bury Them", and everything "BANK of AMERICA", as well as any other corporation or entity that decides to join with them. Together, American Patriots are stronger than they ever hoped to be! They call themselves "Bank of America" but know nothing of 'America' except for the scorn and contempt for the Constitution and how to piss-off her Patriots!
    Please urge President Trump to intercept this 'Globalist Abomination' of our human and Constitutional Rights by ending this anti-American power-play by "Bank of America, "Big Banking and Big Brother".
    America would be far better to back their own currency by reverting to a Gold, Silver or another value standard. Chances are our 'National Gold Reserves' formally at Fort Knox, Kentucky, have long-since been stolen!
    To Hell with allowing Big Banks, Central Banks, Corporations of Global-Political Schemes, including our so-called 'Federal Reserve', which is neither 'Federal' nor has any 'Reserves', to further dictate and usurp American freedoms through deception and political control of our economy via their Fiat currency.
    End All Control, domestic, world and Brittish by immediately abolishing SES, SERCO, and the Federal Reserve! Better times and a better America will soon follow.
    For Freedom's Sake, please copy and repeat this urgent message any and everywhere, or design your own message, just please spread the word!

    I’ve seen multiple comments where people are using this as a every day carry round. You should not use this kind of bullet as a defensive round. It is not suitable for anything more than target/plinking if you carry you should be willing to spend a few extra bucks to buy a round than will be accurate and won’t over penetrate. I’ve had this blazer ammunition with inconsistent groups I’ve seen a couple out of 10-20 go as much as 8 inches off point of aim at 15 meters this could be very bad in a defensive situation you need to remember every shot you take you will be held responsible for and a inaccurate round could cause injury or death to someone down range.

    Never seen that, yet not to fond of them, they don't sound right and they don't feel right on discharge.

    I'm a reloader. Need to use bullet puller and pop one to see if in fact has powder. Its a BIG QUALITY ISSUE. Those are not dropped, as box would show damage. Check all bullets for OAL. Its not RIGHT at all. Contact dealer to check rest of his stock. Blazzer brass is not best for reloading, so would RTN and get another box/brand.
