Magtech bullets...how are they? Ya? Na? Indifferent?
they work for me in .380
That's the answer I was looking for. I actually ordered some for my .380 to load up but was wondering any pros or cons.
My .32 ACPs really like the Magtech 71 Gr FMJ. I have shot a few in .38 with good results, and have gone through nearly 500 in .44 Mag with excellent results. If the price is right, try them.
All that I have ever used from Magtech are the FMJ style bullets. 380, 9MM and 45 ACP. All of them have worked well as plinking ammo as that is all I use FMJ for. I have never heard of anyone that had major problems with them either as components or their loaded ammo. YMMV
Used a lot of the JSP's in my .444 when I could get them for $12 a hundred.
I was going to try them for my .380. Then move on to .45 if I like them.
I think they're great. Use em in .45acp (FMJ), .357 (JSP) and .44mag (JSP).
44mag Magtech 240's have accounted for 5 deer for me from 5-85 yards. Excellent penetration and expansion even over my light/moderate handload.
I have also used Magtech FMJ bullets in the 9mm and 45 Auto and they are good bullets and as accurate as any others I've used. I think I have loaded Magtech bullets in the 38/357 too. (but I'm not totally sure)
I bought a bag 100 9mm FMJ a while back and they shot well.
