Are Blazer 40gn .22LR and Mini-Mag .22LR the Same?

Hello,



I got to looking at the specs on these two cartridges. Both are 40gn @ 1235fps, and both are headstamped CCI.



I would like to use the Blazers to practice and the CCI to hunt. However, I don't want to be contaminating the CCI lube with Blazer lube or vice versa. Therefore, does anyone know if they use the same stuff? I don't want to sight in one only to find out that the POI has shifted and end up having to shoot 20 just to get the barrel re-seasoned.



The CCI Mini-Mags let me hit small game at 100yds; the Blazer is not 100% consistent beyond 50yds or so. In other words, given a 1" PB for the vitals, I'm confident of hitting it with the Mini-Mags, not so much the Blazers.



I do form both in D Rock's tool, but Blazers just have more variation from cartridge to cartridge when powder charges and bullet weights are concerned.



Thanks,



Josh

JMO, but Blazes have all ways been junk ammo, no good for any thing other than punching paper, for hunting and serious use I like the Min-Mag and the older Game Getter ammo better. I have one of the old Hanned tools and lat point all of them
