What about the bullet design?

I've shot Magtech hardball range ammo in 9mm and .45acp and it's pretty decent.

Cleaner than WWB and reasonably powerful.

My preference for range ammo is American Eagle, Fiocchi and PMC in that order. But these days, anything that goes bang has to be considered.

Magtech .45 ACP 230gr FMC

I've put quite a few of these rounds through my 1911 and have only had two jams, which were more than likely due to a worn magazine I was using at the time. Pretty decent stuff for the price and seems to burn a bit cleaner than Winchester or Remington.

My son bought some Magtech ammo for my 8 3/8th ,44 Mag. It was so dirty that after two cylinders you had to bang the cases out. I cleaned the gun real good and he had the same problems.

We measured the case lenght and they were 2.57 to 2.56 which is a little short. Cases should be 2.61 I think this was causing the problems.

There are no problems with Hornady or Remington factory loads.

I have only used their .45 ACP FMJ but never had any hiccups with it. That was with 1,000's of rounds through various 1911's.

Reviews on Magtech Ammo pls

I've shot plenty of magtech ammo through most of my various handgun. Never had any issues that I can recall. I'd have no problems using it for range ammo.

Only Magtech I shot was some 30 caliber carbine ammo. I had a problem with it. The primers blew out on a lot of it when I shot it. Don't know if it was undersized primers or casings with oversize pockets. Have shot many other brands with no problems. Won't be buying any more Magtech.

I've shot a bunch of Magtech in my 9mms. .45s, and .44 magnum. Decent stuff and reasonably priced (before the current ammo scare)- I'll buy more when prices come down.

The range where I used to work sold Magtech ammo. We never had any problems or complaints. Magtech self defense ammo is highly thought of by many people.
