    Blazer Brass

    I was at my local Walmart tonight and picked up some Blazer Brass 9mm. The Walmarts that I had gone to prior to moving didn't have Blazer, only the WWB, but this one has the Blazer Brass. I paid $8.97 per 50 round box of this stuff (WWB is $9.97). Isn't that pretty cheap? I'm curious because the prices online for Blazer Brass are higher than WWB online prices, and I'm wondering if maybe they had their pricing mixed up with the aluminum cased Blazer? I bought the 5 boxes they had left, and I'm wondering if I should keep an eye on their shelves to see if they get more. Thanks for the input guys!

    ah jeff we meet again and it seems like you got a good deal. the local walmart here caries blazer but only in 40 and its not that much different than the wwb but I do think here it is a little higher that's why I stick with wwb. the tags may be screwed up, if so you benefitted from it. I don't know what its called but the local walmart here has remington in a green box? have you tried it? its cheaper than wwb.

    If your gun(s) shoot it well then run with it I don't like the aluminum cased Blazer much at all but the brass stuff seemed a little better to me anyway. I'm really not sure what the differences are to be honest as to the powder etc. but like I said...If you shoot it well and are getting a good price on it then get all you can. Sounds like you found a deal anyway.

    I see a deal on stuff my guns like I'll buy all I can..heh

    I have a feeling the tags might be screwed up that's why I was asking.

    I believe you're talking about Remington UMC. At the Walmarts I went to prior to moving, the UMC always cost more than WWB when there was any (which wasn't very often). I was shocked to even see this Blazer Brass let alone at this price.

    I'm not worried about it with any of the guns that I have.

    That's exactly what I did. That's sort of why I was asking if it really was as good of a deal as I thought it was, because I'll keep getting as much as I can afford to get if they don't raise the price.

    I don't think their pricing was mixed up, $9.97 is the regular price for 50 rounds of WWB 9mm around here as well.

    Well weather or not it's a good deal will depend on how well your guns shoot it. I know people that shoot ammo that I can't stand but their guns seems to like it so it really don't mater what others will think about it. I'm a fan of that Seller and Bellot stuff that cheaperthandirt sells a lot of because several of my rifles and handguns like it. If I find a sale on a caliber that I can use i really piss off the UPS guy with a huge nut busting order..lol. There's really noting special about it. It's east European Mil-Spec ammo.. A little hotter than a lot of mainstream ammo but I have some guns that will shoot the crap out of it and love it. I found it back in my Glock days. I had a G17 and G19 that seemed to really like it so I tried some other calibers.

    i hope your guns like it. Like I said it does seem to be better than the alum case stuff but I really don't know if it is. A penny saved is another box of ammo though

    I meant maybe the price they had for this Blazer Brass was mixed up with the aluminum cased Blazer.

    I don't think I'll have any problems with it. I have put some nasty, old, shitty ammo through my XDSC and my Cougar and have never had an issue. I guess we'll find out for sure though.

    Valpak Coupons

    Also, keep an eye on those ValPak coupon packs that come in the mail! Normally I just throw them out, but since I just moved and will be a little tight on cash until I get a job I went through it quick. I found a $10 off of purchase of $50 or more coupon for Sportsman's Warehouse. There are no exceptions listed on the coupon, so I'm figuring...

    $50 worth of ammo=$40=Awesome deal!!!

    I know these ValPaks are different everywhere, but it would be worth a look no matter where you are. Just a heads-up.

    Walmart and Blazer Brass is hit and miss (pun).

    Some carry it, most don't. Some carry it in some calibers, and not others. When I have found Blazer Brass at a Walmart, it is always the cheapest ammo they have.

    Last year I found a Walmart in Amarillo, TX that had BB in two calibers only. The .40 was $7.97, and the .45 was $9.57. I bought a couple 1000 of each.

    Interesting info, thanks! I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it to see if they get more.

    One thing that made me think it was probably a good deal is that the guy at the counter told me someone came in one time and purchased 7000 rounds of BB, because they just had a huge shipment come in. Now that's a shitload of ammo....

    Beefy,

    Have you been to the range yet with the Blazer brass? I'm wondering how it compares to the WWB, especially whether it is cleaner or dirtier than the WWB, and if the difference is minimal or significant.

    Thanks

    I actually haven't gone yet. I might be going to shoot on Sunday, I will keep you posted. I really want to get to the range as I haven't been in a while because of the chaos involved with moving halfway across the country.

    Well, Wyatt, you pulled my leg soooo hard that I just had to go to the range right after my last post. It was pretty obvious that I hadn't been to the range in a while, my groupings weren't nearly as good as they had been...but that's easily fixed with more time on the range. I brought the XDSC and the Blazer Brass cycled and performed flawlessly (not that I expected anything different from my XD ). I pulled the slide off right when I got home to take a look and it doesn't seem to be that dirty at all. I fired 150 rounds of the BB and I actually think it might be a little cleaner than with WWB (the gun doesn't have the little "gold speckles" that are all over with WWB). At that price, I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more of this Blazer. I hope that helps!

    -Jeff-

    Edit: Here are my last two mags through the gun at 25 feet. Like I said, it's been a while...no laughing! I seemed to like the upper-right "quadrant" of the target today...going to have to work on that. Anyways....here are my shitty targets to make you all feel even better about yourselves



    Maybe it was the ammo!

    When in doubt, blame the loose nut behind the trigger!

    I went to the range tonight and something weird happened. When I shot off the rest, everything was right in the center of the target. But when I shot freehand, my shots were going all over the place. I was using Blazer Brass, so now we know... It was the ammo after all!
