Made in Brazil, I think. Is this stuff any good?

My favorite M193.

I have never had a problem with it and I have shot a lot of it in 32acp, 9mm, 45acp, 5.56, and .308.

Their 300 blkout is the best deal on the market

Their 77gr mk262 copy is incredibly accurate for cheap.

SGAmmo has 115gr 9mm for $163 for a case of 1,000. Good buy if the ammo is gtg.

FPNI, GTG, Fo at will.

It rocks

Good performance, low price
I've used 9mm, .40,  and .45 ACP with good results
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:03:43 AM EDT
The only 2 ammo brands I have ever had issues with are Blazer (aluminum) and Magtech.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:05:06 AM EDT
Their .38 cases stick in my shell holder.

Other than that g2g.

All my picky .22 semi pistols, eat it up.

2000 rounds of 40S&W without a problem.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:08:42 AM EDT
Shot 1000s of rounds of it through the years, zero issues

Back when I had a diamondback, it was the only ammo that would make THAT piece of shit function reliably.


There's no better endorsement than that.

Good to hear it's not bad. I have about 400 rds of Magtech .308 that a buddy gave me.  Have never shot it though.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:11:35 AM EDT
I had 3 cases of 308 ammo that was very very under powered.  The distributor for CBC/Magtech was great to work with and replaced the ammo with MEN german ammo.  They supposedly said it was machine gun ammo.

Meh, it's not my preferred but it's okay for paper application

Shot it in various calibers, 1000's rounds in 9mm, never had any problem with it.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:30:21 AM EDT
Every now and then I'll run into their 62gr and buy as much as I can.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:39:02 AM EDT
Never had any issues with it.

their mk262 stuff is highly coveted by the MK12 clone community

Aluminum blazer is pretty shitty.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 11:48:19 AM EDT
Good stuff.

Now they're expensive.

Best price for 300 BLK out there but I have had shitty results with accuracy and shifting hits. And I know it wasn't the shooter either. I tried Hornady American 300 right after and had great results.

Same , I use it as relatively cheep plinking ammo only. It's grapefruit accurate at 100 out of a 9" barrel
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 1:13:03 PM EDT
I won't shoot it at all any more.....it's been responsible for 2 fairly serious "incidents" for me.....

1st was a case head failure in a bone-stock series 70 Colt .45 auto......blew the magazine out of the bottom of the well...

Last was in a FA Vector Uzi.......squib had just enough power to blow the bolt back and catch another round.....


Here are the 2 slugs I drove out of the bbl. It banana-peeled the top cover when the 2nd case exploded


Gun has run 100% with "anything else" before and since
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 1:16:28 PM EDT
I found it inconsistent and dirty. Reminded me of South African cat piss ammo - but not as good. 
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 1:18:15 PM EDT
Always has been good for me.



Sir James...

You could ask in one of the Henderson defense threads.  They used to run Magtech exclusively.  

I bought a 1000 rounds 9mm this year no issues.  I just took delivery of 1000 rounds 5.56 have not shot yet. 
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 1:29:58 PM EDT
Thanks for the replies. There are a couple of negative reports here, but the general consensus appears to be good.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 1:30:08 PM EDT
As good as anybody's. 
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 7:23:39 PM EDT
I like it
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 7:30:21 PM EDT
I want to see a gel test of their 62 grain FMJ 5.56.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 7:34:14 PM EDT
I have only used their 357 and 44 mag stuff but it was good shit
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 7:34:21 PM EDT
Yep.

Pretty much same. It was on sale at Sportsmans Guide in 9mm and went through most of that (don't think it was as good as OP's deal here). Probably started with around 1,200. It was grouped for sale in a strange quantity. Like 250rd or something. (5x 50 round boxes) No unusual incidents, accurate enough for range for sure.
Bought a can of the surplus 5.56 and haven't cracked the seal.
