    Anyone have any experiance re-loading 'Blazer Brass'? I'm finding more and more at the range, to the point that I hate 'tossing' these quantities away.
    I would be loading target loads in .40 and .45 acp. Thanks!

    blazer also makes an aluminum case , I have heard guys say they load it, I do not think I would. but the brass cases should be OK.

    I have loaded Blazer brass in .45 auto and .40 S&W. It does fine for me.

    No problems here from Blazer. Case dimensions are consistent and primer pockets seem plenty tight enough.

    Use a lot of it here, came across some of it in a gunshop for cheap and have reloaded it 3 or 4 times so far.................

    if its made of brass and its boxer primed then its reloadable. I have reloaded aluminum cases but they too were boxer primed and aluminum tends to split when you flare the case mouth... BTW blaser brass is actually pretty good quality brass..

    Thanks guys. I'll stop tossing these into the 'junk' bin! :)
  9. By the way, the same rule holds for Wolf brass. I've found the Wolf Gold casings work fine when reloaded. They're brass and boxer primed, unlike the steel cased stuff Wolf loads.

    I have used Blaser brass also, no problems with it.

    I load Blazer BRASS in 45 acp all of the time. Keep away from the aluminum cartridges though.
