    I have used thier ammo, although for my JHP: 230gr FMJ ammo.
    It shot a little dirty...but I still use it.
     

  3. I've used Magtech and have no complaints.

    In my reloading I use two different bullets, the cheapest lead bullets I can find for plinking and Magtech for my "good" reloads, I'm very satisfied with their bullets.

    As for their loaded ammo, so what if it's a bit dirty. My Bullseye is dirty also but it works well.

    I do like Mag Tech but for SD I use Golden Sabers in the ,45 and Gold Dots in the 9mm.

    Magtech is pretty good stuff. I have not shot much of the HP, but I shoot the FMJ all the time, no complaints.
     
  5. I have used a good bit of MagTech FMJ in 9mm and .380 at the range and didnt have any problems with it in my pistols. I found this ammo to shoot much cleaner than Independence or Remington UMC brands. MT left no burned/unburned powder flake fouling in my pistols like Independence does, and the soot fouling was a bit cleaner than Rem UMC's.

    The only JHP MT loads I have shot were in .380ACP and I had no issues with it in the wife's Bersa Thunder or my Davis P380. My local dealers carry two different MT JHP loads, one is a pointy type (small JHP opening) 95gr bullet and the other a wider (more traditional size opening) 87gr JHP bullet.

  6. I used some MagTech in .357 for my revolver. I didn't like it. Stuff just felt cheap. I don't think I'll be buying it again.

    Shot it in .45 ACP (ecellent) and .357 magnum (not so great). The .357 seemed underpowered compared to federal and winchester. It was accurate but not what i was expecting from a JHP ,357 round.

  9. Actually, on second thought, I think that I went to the store and looked at MagTech ammo, and then when I came back to actually buy it, they didn't have any left so I got something else. So I have no idea if I've ever shot MagTech. Disregard my earlier statement.
