LOL, WWB 9mm is anything but underpowered. Unless they changed it recently or something, or we're not talking 9mm.I use aluminum out of my Glocks without an issue, especially at practice for steel plates. I have also seen people have issues with WWB brass ammo because it's underpowered, so it's not just an aluminum case issue.
if a hipoint is running it will eat anything. HPs are like that they either work or they dont. Funny thing is their. warranty is pretty good and turn around is great.At 189.00 delivered for 1k rounds of Brand name Brass these days next time buy Brass. But like you said, you have learned a few things out of it. I do see people at my range shooting Fed Aluminum and the last time was out of a Hi-Point Carbine with zero issues.
Wow, 7+ reloads in aluminum cases, would of thought they would have split after a couple. Hows the steel to work with? Do you have to lube the cases? Must have to really crank on the handle to resize vs brass, no?I've reloaded the aluminum cases and they functioned fine for at least 7 reloads (kind of lost track after that). Steel reloads work fine, too. Not my standard fare, but it was an experiment.
I don't have any issues reloading 8mm and .45 ACP in non-brass cases either, but don't take this as a recommendation.
At least they were honest about it being training ammo. [lol]Agree on all fronts. Shoots super dirty too. That whole $.01/round I saved really feels like crap now. Live and learn. I had a new shooter with me today, so it was nice being able to do a little training on clearing malfunctions etc.
IMHO stuff like Blazer AL and steel cased ammo has its place, problem in a lot of cases is that it just simply sin't loadedAt 189.00 delivered for 1k rounds of Brand name Brass these days next time buy Brass.

Not every steel cased round uses copper clad steel jacketed bullets. It's also a false problem, to some degree. For example I used toThe problem with the steel cases stuff isn’t so much the cases but the steel jacketed/copper washed bullets. They are harder on your barrel.
I should have been more specific, I was more speaking generically about imported steel cased pistol ammo (eg, like some crap like brown bear) than Blazer AL. I think several years ago there was a guy around here (Jgreen maybe?) who used some BB at an IDPA shoot and the stuff didn't even chrono at minimum/minor.I've got a box of CCI Blazer .38+P that'll disagree with you. Man that stuff has some punch to it.
