The Brazilian ammo company, Magtech, has been around for over 80 years. Their parent company, CBC, is the largest provider of military ammunition in all of Latin America. They also own the popular European ammo company, S&B. Magtech is known around the world for making quality, reliable ammo for a number of different shooting applications.
The round we're looking at today is one of several of Magtech's .38 Special loads. This one features a reloadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer and a 158 grain lead core bullet with a copper jacket, which Magtech calls a FMC, or full metal case. This type of ammo is ideal for just about any practical purpose outside of hunting or self-defense. The lack of exposed lead on the tip of the bullet means it runs cleaner than a lot of other revolver ammo. It's also a little safer for extended use on indoor ranges, where you want to keep airborne lead particles to a minimum.
We tried the ammo in six different guns, including five revolvers and one lever action rifle. Recoil was pretty mild, though not quite as soft as Magtech Lead Round Nose 38. It was still a breeze to shoot in any of our revolvers, including the lightweight Ruger LCR.
We didn't have any problems with ignition or extraction in our test guns, and the Marlin 1894 lever action fed every round smoothly. We took the rifle back to 20 yards to test accuracy from a bench rest. We got a nice 10 shot group just a little high and right of the point of aim. While it's not match-level accuracy, this kind of consistency is above average for a .38 practice load.
Magtech is not quite a household name like some of the other domestic brands that have been around for a while, but for me, it's proven to be high-quality, reliable ammo. If you need a light recoiling round for practice on the range, this load from Magtech should be high on your list.

The product is great and shoots fine. You will be my sole source of supply as you made it so easy to get my ammo into "The Kingdom of New York."
