I see good deals on this online. Has anyone had experience with this aluminum ammo in their 9mm pistol? FTF or FTE? I read that because aluminum has less "elasticity" than brass, it does sometimes have FTE issues.

That was my favorite ammo when I had a glock 19. Never had any trouble with it at all.

The only time I had problems with CC Blazer 9mm ammo is with hollow points and a Cobray M-11 and Sile's Spectre. I've shot them with no problem through my Glocks converted from 40 to 9 by LW barrels, S&W 5906, 6906, Beretta 92, Sig P6, Tanfoglio 75.

my glock 17 loves it... but then again it loves anything. even that steel cased brown bear stuff from russia! I think it will depend more on what gun you are shooting it out of..... glocks in my expirience eat anything.

Ran fine in my Beretta.

I used to shoot a ton of that stuff back in the day (94-98, poor college student) out of my beretta 92fs and then my Cougar. Never had a issue, always loaded and went bang. Never had a FTE either.
For a practice round and shooting paper I wouldnt hesitate.
I dont use it anymore because I want brass to reload.
I used to pay $5.99 a box of 50, I think its around 10 bucks now.

Only issue I ever had with CCI was in a revolver. Gets hot, hard to eject.

I've only used the FMJ ammo from CCI and it fed fine in my 92FS.

I have shot thousands of rounds of 9mm CCI Blazer aluminum through my five 9mm guns with no problem - Glock 19, Sig P226 and P239, Kahr MK9 and S&W 39. I also frequently shoot this type of ammo in .45, .357 magnum and .44 magnum with no problems.

The only real problem is that certain ranges don't allow because they can't reload it. So the range I've been going to in TX didn't allow, but because I'm a regular...I'm good to go, but I have to sweep up the alluminum shells and trash 'em...which I keep forgetting to do.

This one likes it though:

My S&W M&P never had a problem with it.

My Sig Pro 2022 likes both the Blazer aluminum and Blazer brass... Not a single failure with either of them...

Unless you reload or your range does not allow it, I don't see why you would spend more for anything else. I've shot thousands of rounds aluminum blazer in both 9 and 45 and it works great.

i shoot it all the time in my Sig, Glock and H&K...runs great.

it's advantage over WWB is that it shoots cleaner...plus it is usually cheaper

My ruger has no problems with it, or any other ammo for that matter. Its a tank, and pretty damn accurate also.

Shot plenty of it in my G19 with no issues at all. Sig P228 loved it as well.

I use it in my G26, and G23 (with 9mm conversion) and it works great...

No problems whatsoever through my XD or Glock. For range ammo they are GTG! Buy it cheap and stack it deep;)

I had tried few boxes without any problem. But than discover that wm sells the blazer brass for cheaper price. Uhh, the good old day that you can find cheap ammo in wm.

I've only shot a few boxes of it, my XD9 ate them up no problem, but my 9mm AR didn't like them so much.
