Any one shoot this regularly? It is fairly new offering. Better bullet than most foreign steel-cased ammo.  Shot about 500 rounds of it but just don't think it is worth it at its price point over brass.

Some thoughts on it, if you are interested.

So it costs the same as brass? No thanks

I'll stick to Tula/Wolf

I have tried the Federal Champion aluminum cased 9mm and it was horrible. Like 2-4 inches lower at 25 yrds than Tula/Wolf. Super under powered.

That part makes no sense. It's either because its new, or they are about to learn a lesson in economics.

How did the Champion aluminum compare to Blazer aluminum?

I bought a 150 round box of 9 for like $30. So bout the same piece as Tula. The cases were kinda dusty and dry. I'll stick with Tula when I want to slum it.

For me, Blazer is even weaker. Only round ever to not cycle the slide on a stock M&P9mm.
