just bought 500 rds of 9mm blazer brass from cabelas on sale for $10.99 . Real shitty looking brass like they have been in storage for 50yrs. or possible reloads? Will shoot some today to see if there will be any issues..

Hmmm, what box did they come in?

Blazer Brass I buy all look new and shoot great. Then again, I pay more than $11 per box (although not a lot more -- I assume that WAS the per 50 round box price, right? Because 500 rounds for $11 would be a steal).

That's a heck of a deal.

That’s probably a typo on the OP’s part or the price per 50 round box which would make it $109 for 500. An ok price.

I’ve shot lots of Blazer Brass in the past and have just bought 500 rounds of it. Comes looking brand new. Shoots fine. As soon as the weather breaks, I intend to put a bunch of different 9mm ammo thru my Chrono. I’ll see where it stacks up against other ammo, but it’s good range ammo in my opinion. No hesitation to buy it.

I have purchased Brass Blazer more than a few times where the brass did not look the greatest but it always shot fine. I would not worry about it.

I just bought a case of BLASER BRASS 9mm fmj. I've used it extensively before and never had an issue with appearance or performance. Yesterday I ran 300 rds of it through a new P320c. The brass casings looked like they hadn't been tumbled enough. But it went through the P320c like it had the runs.

Also used tons of this ~ maybe an all-time favorite for quality vs price.

I've shot a few hundred rounds of it in 9mm. It all went bang and made holes.



Now here's something we hope you'll really like.

I just received 350 rounds in a so called “Free Ammo”can. Whenever I see that free ammo can with ammo, I can punch in the numbers to get the price per round and go to the normal 50 round box without the ammo can and punch the numbers in to get the price per round, the difference is significant, so I never order the “Free Ammo Can” stuff but when I did the numbers on this box, it turned out to be a good deal, so I went ahead and ordered one. I have close to 1k of this stuff on hand now.

I've shot 15,000+ rounds of BB, it's all I buy unless there is MagTech cheaper or lately GECO.

Great stuff, goes bang every time. Not dirty at all.

Just curious as to why you would think that you have "reloads" in CCI Blazer Brass boxes purchased from a large retail sporting goods store like Cabela's?
