Hi all,

I'm sure this question has been asked many times before, but I wasn't able to find an answer quite specific to my situation. I purchased around 200 rounds of Blazer Brass 45 ACP ammo around 4 years ago for the shooting range. Took some time off and wanted to get back into it, however my ammo has started to discolor and corrode as shown in the picture. I have always kept this ammo in a dry area, and I realize Blazer Brass isn't the highest quality in the first place. Would this still be ok to shoot at the range?

Or, use a fine green Scotch-brite type pad as abrasive and give those pills a turn or two. They should "brighten up".

Their brass is as good as anyone else's. Shoot it up and clean them and reload

Choot em, reload em and choot em again. Repeat until the cases split. They are perfectly fine.

I've had primer pockets "enlarge" and rims become rounded-off before the cases split. But yes, use and abuse to failure is the best policy.
