    Has anybody shot aluminum cased .40 through their carbine? I just went through 100 rnds of winchester white box and it was fine but I can get aluminum cased federal for $10 cheaper

    It works but I find aluminum shavings in my guns afterwards. But use what you can get.

    The aluminum cased ammo runs good in all my guns, no matter what the make.

    It only doesn't function in my HP40. Just don't like cleaning up afterwards in my other guns. And I reload so its not worth buying for me.

    Never had a problem. Haven't tried the Federal but all the CCI Blazer I've fired has never failed to go boom.
     
  8. I shot Blazer 9mm Largo years ago when it was available. Never had one issue with it, I just bought two boxes of 40 S&W Blazer for my wife's glock I doubt there will be any problems.

    Steel ammo usually causes problems before aluminum does.

    My HP 40 hates it to the point of fire jam fire jam you get the point.

    My 4095 eats everything I feed it. Once i got my mags right, it turned in to a fat kid in the candy aisle.

    Nobody wanted to buy it when it first showed up a Walmart. Now it flies off the shelf. I ran 70 rounds through my 4095 yesterday, no problems. No shavings either.

    I ran some in the Glock and had 1 FTF. It may have been limp wristing as I was teaching my 18yo grand daughter to shoot!

    I swapped out to my 9mm Lone Wolf barrel and burned up 3 boxes of aluminum 9's.

    Time to go to Walmart and check and see if they got any more in!





    Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Same thing with my 9mm carbine. It's all the indoor range stocks so I usually bring my own ammo or after about 50 rounds, my carbine starts to jam every other round. (Blazer 9mm)
