How is the 9 & 40 brass for reloading? I was thinking of stocking up on a few cases of this for practice and then reload it

can't speak on the 40 but the 9mm reloads fine.

The 9mm reloads just like any other. The large primer .45 does as well.

I will say that the Blazer is almost always the cleanest looking brass in the tumbler. Most brass (Black Hills, Winchester, Remington) can take 2-3 hours to get clean. Blazer is spotless within 30-45 minutes. Must be something in their mix that doesn't allow deposits to adhere as well.

The 9mm is good brass, no issues. I am not familair with the .40.

It's fine. It looks like typical Speer brass.

Reloaded a bunch of it in .45ACP. It was mostly good. A few of the cases had what appears to be small primer pockets instead of large ones.

They are small primer. I've got roughly 300 of them saved up now. I'm just waiting for a good time to load them special. Seems as though Blazer Brass .45 were large primer for awhile (I bought one or two boxes in college with large primers), but then they switched. Now I inspect every case for damage AND primer size.

I think the primer size change has to do with a "LEAD FREE" or lower lead round. Winchester does it too. So any .45acp from a range you pick up, always check that primer size.

Its all been GTG for me, except the 45acp is all small primer

Yep... Runs great.

With thousands of rounds of .40 loaded into Blazer Brass cases I can say, with 99.995% certainty that Blazer Brass is gtg :)
