Their 357mag ammo works pretty well, but I haven't tried any auto ammo from them.

The Mag Tech FMJ that I have used was the equal of WWB or UMC. The Mag Tech +P+ is a very hot animal that I will only shoot in my Bushmaster rifle. In my area you can get WWB at Wal-Mart for $16 per 100. I also think you could beat that Mag Tech price at Georgia Arms.

I shoot magtech out of my 1911s and it works pretty well. Not very dirty either.

I agree. I have shot Magtech in .44mag, .45 and .357 with no issued at all.

I shoot MagTech .30 Carbine out of my M1 Carbine regularly without a hitch.

I've used MagTech in 9mm and 45, and it is fine ammo. That price is not bad, especially if that's from a local store.

I've never had any issues with it.

I have been using their .308 win for a long time, and used their .357 magnum.
They really produce accurate, clean, reliable and affordable ammunition.

I shoot MagTech out of my Ortgies .32 auto. Good stuff.

I shot 100 rounds of MagTech .38 spl out of my S&W 640, and it was very easy cleaning after.

50 rounds of Remington UMC and it took a lot more elbow grease to clean.

I think I'll stick with MagTech.

MagTech is fine ammo. I've shoot many rounds of .45 and 9mm before I started reloading. Pretty good stuff.

Anecdote: I asked my sister, a burgeoning shooter, to buy some .357 Magnum ammunition for a range session we scheduled. I thought she was getting WWB or something.

Oh, no. She got Magtech. I knew what we were getting into, she didn't.

The flame shot out about a foot and a half from my 2 1/4" Ruger SP101. I was OK with it, but I was suspicious of how she would handle it. Imagine my surprise when she loved shooting it. She did a whole box by herself, and this with a SIG P239 and a Glock 22 and 27 as alternatives.

Yes, it hits like a champ out of a snub-nosed revolver. But man, is it fun. Both myself and my sister agree. Too bad it's so expensive ($24 a box, which was the cheapest there was around here (Central PA)).

I've used thousands of rounds of MagTech ammo in 38spl, 357mag, 45acp, 40S&W, 44mag and 30 carbine. Only trouble I've ever had was with some hard primers in the 357 mag loads. Good stuff overall.

The range I go to stocks it by the bushel as their range ammo. Although I usually bring my own (unless renting their guns), I've used quite a bit with no problem.

Magtech ammo (Headstamp CBC) is pretty good stuff, and I prefer the CBC .45 brass for reloading, it's about my favorite. Never had a bad one yet.

I have used magtech 9mm for my XD it loved the stuff, so did my wallet.

At my range, I've seen thousands of rounds of MagTech ammo fired in a number of popular calibers---.22LR, .380, .38 Sp, 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .357 Magnum. There have been no problems with it thus far. I personally don't use MagTech, so I'm not a fanboy trying to puff it up.

I've also heard nothing negative about MagTech from the regulars at my range. To my knowledge, it's a good value for the money. Made in Brazil.

Brazil, eh? Between this stuff and the more recent stuff from Taurus, it would appear that they know what they are doing. I would say "like those Czechs," but my understanding is that Czech ammunition, or at least Sellier & Bellot, has brittle brass inasmuch as it needs to be tempered(?) so that it doesn't crack while reforming.

Annealed! Not tempered. Man, that would have bugged me all day.

I've shot Magtech 9mm LRN through my S&W M&P 9mm with good results.

I need more coffee...I read "I shoot MagTech at my Orgies. Good stuff.":what:


Magtech 124gr fmj works fine in my G17. I'll be trying the 147gr jhp next. Not at my orgies but other places.:D

I have to agree with the other posters. MagTech is consistent, accurate and reliable. I'd say it is a definite step up from UMC and WWB. $9.50 is a great price too.

Just got some for 9mm for 67 dollars per 250. They all shot well with not one issue. I would say go for it.

It is the 115 grain stuff for my glock 17 so I hope it is as good as you all say it is?

I use their 180-gr. FMJ .40 load for practice. Good product, and was the cheapest range ammo I could find in this caliber in my area. And it is brass cased, not aluminum like Blazer.

Lagwagon fan? I like the 180g .40 load, the brass is great, and the shellholders are plastic, which makes great reloading trays.

Shot some .357 magtech, it seemed somewhat hot, more blast and recoil than some, but me and the GP100 liked that just fine...

A lot of folks in my IDPA Club use magtech because it gets extremely consistent velocities and groups.

Back in 2005 and early 2006 I ordered this exclusively from MidwayUSA. Then it back-ordered for like six months, and re-appeared at double the price!

We shot thousands of rounds in 9 mm and .45 ACP, from G19 & G21.

Observations:

- Beautifully Made--Especially For Low-End Stuff!
- Nice Brass--Good For Reloaders!
- Clean Burning!
- Somewhat Softer Shooting (Than Remington/UMC)
- Reliable
- Consistent

I've since switched to CCI Blazer due to cost considerations. It's ugly, but works perfectly in 9 mm, .45 ACP & 10 mm.

I've used an assortment of Magtech ammo in different calibers, for range use, and for defense. The Magtech Gold line is great hollowpoint ammo for those who look for alternatives to high price defense ammo.

Never used the 9mm but like the 357 and 44spl.

My EMP and SR9 (until the recall) like it.

SS Loaded Champion, Ultra Carry II and Rock Island like it.

The UPS guys complain about the carton weights, a lot on the 1,000 rounds of .45...

I'm currently carrying their Guardian Gold 115gr +P 9mm in all my 9's. I like it - clean, accurate, and plenty hot. I haven't tried any of the other stuff they sell.

I've shot several 1000 MagTech 9mm 124 gr FMJ thru my CZ 75 SP-01 and haven't had a dud round yet. Consistency is great and it's a fairly clean-burning round.
