Does anyone know if Magtech M80 7.62MM ammo is any good for plinking? It seems to be readily available at decent prices right now, so I thought about picking some up. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Magtech .308 runs pretty good through my POF. I have shot about 150 rounds through is and seems good so far, enough to order 1000 more rounds of it. One thing
I found a little strange was that is shot consistently low and right compared to federal premium 168 smk. These were shot back to back.
Good for the money IMHO.

From the three boxes I picked up yesterday it looks good. Clean, mil spec green sealant, says made in Brazil on the bottom of the boxes. M80 Ball. Came in 50 rnd boxes. I havn't shot it yet but at the price my local shop has it for, I may go back and get more to stock up. Some is better than none I guess.

I shot 200 rds through my 716 with no issues. It is not match accurate, but it works just fine. I was not too dirty either.

Magtech has a good rep for quality and reliability. Their version of M193 does not appear to be crimped, but I don't know about their M80.

I've gone through quite a bit of their pistol ammo and it has all been first rate. If I had the cash in my hand, I'd buy a bunch of it.

3. The headquarters is located in São Paulo, Brazil and our company, CBC - Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos, is the largest military and commercial ammunition manufacturer in Latin America. CBC was founded in 1926, and from 1936 through 1979 Remington Arms of USA and ICI – Imperial Chemical Industries of England were the controlling shareholders. Today, the operation is a privately held company.

I've shot a lot of it over the years and never had any problems.
