Video Transcript:

Magtech is an ammo company based out of Brazil, and has been around for over 80 years. Their parent company, CBC, is the largest provider of military ammunition in Latin America. They also own the popular European ammo company S&B. Magtech is not quite as popular here in the US, but in other parts of the world, they have a strong reputation for making quality, reliable ammo for a number of different shooting applications.

Magtech offers several different 38 Special loads, and the one we tried out for this video is a 130 grain flat tip full metal jacket. The bullet is a traditional lead core copper Full Metal Jacket, which Magtech refers to as a Full Metal Case. Because of the flat tip bullet, the full designation on the box is FMC-FLAT. The case is reloadable brass with a non-corrosive primer.

We ran a couple of boxes of this ammo through six different guns to see how it will perform. We used five revolvers and one lever action rifle.

Magtech is known for using slightly harder primers in their ammo, but this usually isn't a problem with unmodified guns. This Smith and Wesson 686 has lighter springs than what come from the factory, and we did have one ignition failure as a result. The round went off on the second try, so I'm inclined to blame the gun for this one. If you don't modify your revolvers, you should have no problems with the Magtech ammo.

We didn't have any other issues beyond the single light strike, and the Marlin 1894 carbine fed the flat tip rounds with no problem. Recoil was light to moderate, and on par with most other non-+P 38 Special loads.

We tested accuracy from the bench at 25 yards with the carbine. The 10 shot group was hitting right around the point of aim with a respectable two inch pattern.

It's easy to overlook Magtech with so many other more common brands out there. But in my experience, it's always been dependable ammo in any pistol caliber, and I wouldn't hesitate to use this 38 Special load for any range application.
