CCI’s Blazer Brass line offers affordable, reliable ammunition made to SAAMI specs. These .40 S&W rounds, packaged in boxes of 50, use CCI’s renowned primers and Speer bullets. The 180 grain FMJ bullet achieves a muzzle velocity of about 985 feet per second from a 4-inch test barrel.
Blazer Brass differs from standard Blazer ammo in its use of reloadable brass casings.
Cascade Cartridges, Inc, known as CCI, markets high quality, affordable centerfire and rimfire pistol ammunition under the Blazer and Blazer Brass brands. Founded by Richard Speer in Lewiston, Idaho in the mid 20th century, CCI began as a manufacturer of ammunition components and worked closely with Speer’s brother Vernon’s bullet manufacturing firm, Speer Bullets. Today, both companies operate as part of Alliant Techsystems but remain headquartered in their original home and supply each other with ammo components.
An ISO certified company, CCI enjoys a strong reputation among shooters for producing consistent ammunition at reasonable prices.
