U.S.A.-( CCI took the top spot in handgun ammunition in a recent report released by Southwick Associates which surveyed more than 20,000 hunters and recreational shooters in 2019 through its online and consumer panels. Combined with its centerfire sub-brand Blazer, CCI was purchased by more than 24 percent of those surveyed.

“Our workforce in Lewiston, Idaho is very proud that the popularity of CCI’s Blazer Brass centerfire handgun ammunition continues to lead the market. The survey also revealed that CCI is a leader in rifle ammunition with 15 percent of those surveyed reporting purchases of CCI’s rimfire product line for rifle use,” said Rimfire Product Director Rick Stoeckel. “We also think these results reflect how popular our CCI rimfire loads are with target shooting and plinking with handguns. Within the past 10 years the rimfire platform in handguns has skyrocketed.”

The main reason is price and quality. I’ve found that other than .22 Rimfire, CCI has had the best prices for good quality factory ammo in 9mm and .45 ACP at the local Sportsman’s Warehouse. There was some cheaper ammo, in price and quality, but CCI was the best for the money.
