Today, I want to take a look at something fun from Magtech, a company out of Brazil that's been producing quality ammo since the 1920s. These are Magtech 38 special cowboy action loads.
Now, if you're not familiar with cowboy loads, they're specifically designed for shooting sports, like the Single Action Shooting Society. That's a competition league where people get dressed up in period attire and shoot cowboy style revolvers, rifles, shotguns. It's a lot of fun, and to keep the action fast-paced, they will often use these really light recoiling loads to allow for super rapid fire.
In addition to low recoil, these loads are designed to make a lot of smoke when they're fired to somewhat simulate the effect of using black powder. The Magtech cowboy loads feature a traditional reloadable brass case with a noncorrosive primer. The bullet is cast lead with a flat tip that Magtech calls the l-flat.
The flat tipped bullets are suitable for use in lever action rifles as well as revolvers. Because of the nature of these loads, they tend to be a little dirty. So, expect to spend a few extra minutes scrubbing your revolver when you're done. We didn't have any cowboys with us to demonstrate what they can really do out of the single action, but we did some rapid fire with our modern double action revolvers, and the recoil was so light, it was almost like shooting a 22.
I wouldn't recommend using these loads specifically for self-defense practice, but if you've got a smaller revolver that's not so much fun to shoot with full power ammo, try some of the cowboy loads to get used to the trigger mechanics and other handling characteristics.
We tested accuracy from the bench with a four inch barrel Smith and Wesson 686 at 15 yards. The results were great, and probably would be even better in the hands of a skilled cowboy shooter, especially with a long barrel gun. Magtech Cowboy Loads are a great choice for cowboy action shooters, for a fun day at the range, or as a training tool for new shooters.
Fine for SASS

Works well for SASS and is the most affordable approved ammo. I will reload again soon, but now I am collecting brass.

Specific Use Ammo
Review by John. (Posted on 1/22/12)
Dear America First and others. Lead Flat Nose Ammo is for SASS shooting and lever action guns; you pay a small premium for that. Firstly, lever action guns snack bullets in a tube and therefore make it more safe that one bullet doesn't set-off the one in front of it. SASS also has specific requirements, including the use of LFN ammo.

why cost more?
Review by America First. (Posted on 1/4/12)
Why pay $24 for loads with less powder and a cheaper lead bullet? Standard Magtech with 158 Full Metal Jacket and more powder cost $18. What a rip off. Reload your own for less than that.....
