Video Transcript:Magtech is a Brazilian ammo company that's been in business since the 1920s. They make all their own ammunition components in their Sao Paulo factory, which is one of the most advanced in the industry. Magtech is owned by the CBC parent company, which also owns respected European ammo makers, Sellier and Bellot.
For this review, we got to shoot a few rounds of Magtech .40 Smith & Wesson ammo. This batch came packaged in a huge 250 rounds box that Magtech calls their Shootin' Size. It consists of 550 round trays of ammo, stacked on top of each other. There's a convenient cardboard tab in the box that you can use to easily pull out all the trays at once, so you don't have the fumble with them and risk dumping out all your ammo.
It's really designed for you to use all the ammo at once because it doesn't repack quite as nicely as it does from the factory. The 183 grain bullet is a lead core, copper full metal jacket, seated in a reloadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer. Recoil was pretty moderate so you should have no problem going through the whole 250 rounds in one sitting if you want.
Reliability was great and we shot the ammo with six of our test guns without feeding malfunctions. Accuracy was not bad. It didn't really blow us away either, the 10 round group was shot from the bench at 15 yards with a SIG P226. Overall, it's really not bad for a plinking and training load. The Magtech Shootin' Size and .40 Smith & Wesson is a great deal for enough ammo to last you, well, at least a couple of hours on the range. With its reloadable brass casings and great dependability, it's a good choice for any number of range applications.
