Cascade Cartridge Inc., commonly known as CCI, is an ammunition manufacturer based in Lewiston, Idaho that specializes in rimfire ammunition, centerfire handgun ammunition and primers. Established by Dick Speer, brother of Vernon Speer, in 1951 as a steady source for primers, CCI evolved quickly into the full-scale operation dedicated to providing shooters with a wide variety of ammunition targeted for specific applications that it is today.
Now, more than 60 years later, CCI is a subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems – a conglomerate that owns the Federal Cartridge Company as well as many other high-profile ammunition manufacturers while also holding the production contract for the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri. This partnership furthered CCI's ability to provide shooters with innovative new products marked by their consistent performance and unyielding reliability. Moreover, it has placed the company among the leaders in the rimfire ammunition industry. With ties like that, CCI is a name that shooters can trust.
CCI Blazer .357 Magnum ammunition is a product from the company's "Blazer" economy brand. Designed for high-volume shooters and priced accordingly, CCI's Blazer brand of ammunition brings down manufacturing costs by utilizing alternative cartridge cases, which many cite as the most expensive component in ammunition manufacturing. Moreover, the Blazer brand offers variety of rimfire and centerfire handgun loads in several different calibers that utilize Speer bullets and CCI primers to ensure that all shooters can enjoy cheap and affordable yet high-performance shooting.
That said each box of CCI Blazer .357 Magnum ammunition, as noted, contains 50 non-corrosive, aircraft-grade aluminum cartridges. Each cartridge weighs 158 gr and contains a jacketed hollow point projectile, which is specially designed to maximize tissue damage, increase stopping power and offer consistent on-target expansion.
