    blazer brass

    Anybody have problems with the blazer brass 9mm getting your gun incredibly dirty? I usually use WWB and it seems to keep my gun cleaner.

    I use Blazer, Blazer Brass, WWB, and S&B in 9mm, and I have not noticed that any of them are much cleaner or dirtier than the others. Then again, I take more than one gun to the range, so none of them get more than 50-100 rounds at a time.

    Mildly dirty or a lot dirty - it's a moot point for me as they all get cleaned because they are dirty.....

    Blazer Brass

    On this thread you will see that several members, myself included, actually find the Blazer Brass cleaner than WWB.

    I found Blazer Brass to be a bit dirtier than WWB. I clean my Glock after each time at the range and didn't notice it taking any longer to clean.

    You beat me to it. I think everyone in that thread that tried it out thought it was cleaner.

    laxdog13, welcome to the forum!

    I like using Blazer aluminum. Order it online, and it doesn't get any cheaper. My 92FS recently ate 1,000 rounds of it - no problems.

    Don't know about the 9mm, but I've been using the Blazer Brass in .45 and had to buy a box of WWB because wallyworld was out. The Blazer Brass is far cleaner than the WWB, so much so I won't buy any more of the WWB. My new 9mm should arrive today or tomorrow so I'll get to try some 9 Blazer.

    Just about the same here, when my local WallyWorld has the .45 acp Blazer Brass, I always buy it first. #1 it's cleaner, and #2 it's about a buck cheaper than the WWB (for 100 rds.). Problem is my local store sells out of it pretty quick.

    I've only bought ammo for my Glock 9mm a handful of times, and I've only ever bought WWB or Blazer Brass. The first few times was WWB, just for the range, because that's what I saw in the case and it was reasonably priced. A friend asked why I wasn't buying Blazer Brass (he said it was cheaper and just as good), so the next time I went to Wally World I decided to try it out.

    I clean my gun after each trip to the range, and after 100 shots fired with the Blazer Brass, I noticed a significant increase in residue on my gun. Nothing to cause me great concern or anything like that. It just turned the cloths that I was using a lot more black than after shooting the same amount of WWB.

    Again, it wasn't anything major, but I'm wondering if maybe I just bought a dirty box. Everyone else I talk to says that you can't beat the BB for price and cleanliness. The truth is that I'm too much of a cheapskate to buy expensive ammo for the range, so I'll probably still use BB, but I did find it funny that it was so dirty.

    I've had good luck with both blazer & ww from walleyworld. Ultramax is a WHOLE nother story. That stuff is like civil war ammo! 100 rounds made my 9mm look like it shot 1,000 rounds & hadn't been cleaned in years!

    Why yes you did. When I can find it at WW I buy as many boxes of BB as I can afford. If it is out then I the UMC or WWB.

    Thanks Jeff!
