CCI Blazer was the top handgun ammo in 2021 according to Southwick associates which surveyed thousands of hunters and recreational shooters.

Southwick associates surveyed both hunters and recreational shooters  about what brands and products they were purchasing most frequently. The survey looked into everything from ammo and rifles to optics and magazines.

The CCI Blazer handgun ammunition has proved to be a best seller in the survey during the ammo shortage. CCI Ammunition put out a statement addressing the feat.

CCI’s sub-brand Blazer was recently named the most frequently purchased handgun ammunition brand in Southwick Associates 2021 “Hunting & Shooting Participation and Equipment Purchases Consumer Tracking Study”. Southwick’s yearly survey compiled the feedback of over 11,000 hunters and recreational shooters.

“Once again, CCI is very proud of the continued popularity of Blazer Brass centerfire handgun ammunition,” said Handgun Ammunition Product Director, Mike Holm. “We continue to push to provide consumers with a quality product that performs as well as consumers expect it to. We are also incredibly pleased to see that combined, CCI and Blazer make up more than 14% of handgun ammunition boxes purchased. This shows the large market share that these two storied brands have in our industry.”

In the handgun ammunition purchase survey, CCI and all its other affiliate brands proved to have a strong hold on the overall handgun ammunition market. All brands combined accounted for more than 32% of boxes purchased. Across this wide range of brands and product choices, any shooter is sure to find the perfect handgun ammunition option for practice, hunting, target shooting and self-defense.

Not only is CCI’s Blazer a popular brand for handgun shooters, CCI rimfire ammunition also ranked high in the rifle ammunition category in Southwick’s 2021 survey, accounting for almost 6% of boxes purchased. When it comes to target shooting or hunting with rimfire cartridges, CCI continues to be a top-tier, go-to option for all types of shooters.

This survey was in no way the end all be all for ammunition manufacturers, this survey simply illustrated what is popular. That being said, if something is popular there is a reason for it. If you haven’t checked out CCI’s lie of ammunition for yourself do so and see how you like.
