I bought a bunch a few years back and didn't have any problems. I bought it because it was cheap. I still have most of the brass and reload it.

I was going ask the same thing! I bought two boxes
of Independence ammo at a local gun dealer.
They could not fine it in their computor files.
So they sold the 2 for $28.00 plu tax.
Any way the brass says Blazer.
The box says 38 special, 130gr FMJ.
Is this the same as you both have?
Blazer was going for $16.00 for 50rds.

A long time ago, my friend had some trouble with the .45ACP in his Para-ordnance. I think they were failures to feed. His EAA Witness liked them okay though. I shot a box of 9mm recently that was given to me. There were no problems with it.
The bullets are plated rather than jacketed. It means less airborn lead, and possibly more copper in your barrel. If that makes any difference.

I've never had a problem with it. Just bought another case recently.

Had a friend who had a couple boxes... seemed rather dirty to me, worked fine otherwise.

I've shot a decent amount of the .45 before I stared reloading. It worked fine for me and the brass is great to reload.

I thought it was federals generic brand?

I have not had any issues with it.

I just called Blazer, Found out they make Independence Ammunition.
If anyone one was interested.

I just went through two boxes of 9mm, worked fine, not really dirty comparted to WWB.

I have shot a lot of their .45ACP and had zero issues. Brass is good for reloading as well.

It's decent range ammo. I've shot it in 158 gr .357 magnum, 9mm and .45 acp.

I bought a box in .380 at an outrageously high price because it was the only .380 I could find at the time. Anyway, they all functioned and went bang.

I bought a bunch of the 9mm last month and it shoots fine, seems to be decent range ammo.

I was curious too...I saw a bunch at a gunshow today...

I didn't buy any, since I seldom trust a "noname" ammo brand in any of my firearms.

I picked up a case of .45 a couple weeks ago for my SA1911. What I've shot so far worked fine.

I went through 150 rounds of Independence 9mm Monday and it was accurate, 100% reliable and very, very clean as well.

Very little residue and cleaning my gun after shooting it was much easier than usual.

About 2 years ago I bought some 230gr .45 acp,not much 200 rds.I hate to say it, but out of 200 rd at least 35 rds were so cocked in there cases that i could not shoot them.It sounds like thay may have gotten there act together based on this thread,but I have never witnessed a worse factory loaded round than the ones I was unlucky enough to buy,I mean these were bad, really bad.
