    American Eagle vs Blazer ammunition.

  • #2
    I've shot both out of my pistols. They aren't match grade stuff but I've never had any feeding problems, etc. I don't see a difference between the two. I believe Blazer is manufactured in Eastern Europe and American Eagle is Federal's economy brand and is still made in the US. That would have me choose AE.

        I think Blazer ammo was loaded in aluminum (non-reloadable) cases in the past, but are now loaded in brass cases, which can be reloaded. Just my two cents...

          As the firearm officer I used nothing but Blazer.(Blazer was the ammo on state bid.) I have probably used about 450,000 rounds of .40 cal. and .45 cal. on the range with no problems. If there is any drawback at all it is a bit dirty and the officers complained when they cleaned after each session on the range. I wouldn't hesitate to use it even if I had a choice.

            When Blazer ammo came out, it was built (manufactured?) by CCI and though cheap, was good plinking/target ammo. Since CCI (Cascade Cartridge, Inc.) was bought out by Federal, I haven't shot any.
            CCI and RCBS were hand in hand. The only problem I ever saw with CCI Lawman ammo in the yellow plastic box was hard primers. So-so primer strikes just didn't cut it with CCI!

              The Blazer ammo that I used was in a black and white box.

                Our Lawman .38 special +P's are in blue plastic boxes. 300+ rounds of .38 +P's and guess what, we don't even have a .38/.357 anymore, not since the departments switched to Glocks. Maybe we should have sold them during the rush and made a couple of thousand!

                    I agree with a lot in this article. My comment is, make a good first shot and the importance of a second shot declines.
