Video Transcript:The Brazilian ammo company Magtech 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 known around the world for making quality, reliable ammo for a number of different shooting applications. For this review, we tried out their 9mm subsonic load. It features a reloadable brass case with a noncorrosive primer. Like most 9mm subsonic loads, it uses a 147 grain copper jacketed bullet. With a muzzle velocity of 990 feet per second, this load travels well under the speed of sound, which is around 1,100 feet per second. That means there's no supersonic crack when the round is fired. If you're using a normal handgun, it won't make much of the difference. But subsonic ammo is ideal for use with suppressors which muffle the muzzle blast but can't affect the sound made by the bullet in flight. We tested this ammo with an AAC Ti-RANT 9 suppressor mounted to a Glock 17. The sound was a little bit louder than some of the other subsonic ammo that we've used, but it was still quiet enough to be safe to shoot without hearing protection. The bullet used in this Magtech round is copper jacketed. But unlike a plated bullet or a total metal jacket, most FMJ rounds like this one have an exposed lead base. This is not typically an issue, but for suppressors it's less than ideal. Suppressors tend to get dirty very quickly. And any exposed lead on the bullet only makes it worse. However, there's not an abundance of affordable subsonic 9mm practice ammo available. So Magtech's subsonic load is still a welcome option for suppressor owners. We ran this ammo through five unsuppressed guns to test normal function and reliability. Just like with any of the other Magtech's loads that we've tried, there were no feeding issues or any other problems. Accuracy was decent which we tested from a bench rest at 20 yards using a Beretta CX4 Storm carbine. Most of the rounds landed in a small group in the middle with a few flyers just outside of the ten ring. Magtech might not be a household name like some of the other domestic brands that you're used to. But for me, it's proven to be high quality, reliable ammo. With limited options available for affordable subsonic ammo, this Magtech 147 grain 9mm is a good load for general range practice and for use in your suppressor.
