Maybe it's like the Blazer aluminum case ammo. I've never had a problem with it.

I have read a couple reviews on other forums that rate this ammo very high.

I know that is second hand but I suggest because I have actually read good feedback to try a box in your gun before you buy a quantity.

Even if it works great in another person's gun that does not mean your gun will like it.

I have yet to read one bad review

Finally made it to the range and tried the ammo. I shot the .45 Auto and 9mm and both had no issues in a Taurus 1911 and a S&W shield.

I have no experience with the Federal brand but I have shot thousands of rounds of the CCI version years ago in various pistols AR carbine and never had any problem with it. You used to be able to get it from Sports Authority for $3.99 a box of 50 on sale...but that was many years ago.

I've been shooting a lot this lately since it's a little cheaper. It runs fine in my P30L.....I was a little wary of running it in my 9mm AR with the non-fully supported chamber, luckily the case doesn't expand like that Tula brass crap did. It works perfect in the 9mm AR.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

I ran 100 down range a week ago in my Glock 17 gen3 with no issues. Good practice ammo and the price is very attractive, I will definitely be getting more when I see it.

I shot 200 rounds of the .45 with no issues what so ever. Walmart had them reasonably priced.
