Independence/Blazer question

Hello, I just got a quick question regarding the brass for Independence ammo.. I notice it says "Blazer" on the brass and I know that Blazer brass is a manufacturer of ammo.
Why does the Independence rounds have the word Blazer on them? Are they cheap and use blazer brass' brass or something? I found myself accidentally calling the Independence blazer rounds a few times. Just wondering

Speer, Ind, CCI, Blazer, and Federal are all under the same parent company. It's all good stuff.

Starline is suppose to be some great brass. Thats about all I can contribute to this one.

I have used independence for a long time for practice at the range and it has always been great.

Thanks everyone guess it makes sense. It is the blue and white boxes and it's good for plinking plus it's cheap. I used to wonder if they were factory reloads or something because the cartridges aren't that clean compared to other brands but I don't know. They are good rounds

So if they are reloads does that mean I cannot sell the shells again to a reloader? I'm ignorant, forgive me if its a dumb question?

Brass can be reloaded many times....some more than others. So yes, you can sell it if you wish.

Then would it be safe to assume that Speer Gold Dot JHPs are loaded with Alliant powder? Any idea which type?
