Video Transcript:

Magtech is an ammo company based out of Brazil, and they've 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 high 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 unjacketed Lead Round Nose bullet. This is one of the oldest bullet types around, and it's still popular for use in revolvers because of the low manufacturing costs. Most Lead Round Nose bullets have soft recoil because the lower velocities keeps the lead from fouling the barrel. And this load from Magtech is no exception.

We tried the ammo in six different guns and recoil was very tame in all of them. Other than being a little smoky, it makes a good practice load, especially for small revolvers like this Ruger LCR. We didn't have any problems with ignition or extraction in our test guns, including the Marlin lever action carbine.

We took the rifle back to 25 yards to test accuracy from a benchrest. The 10-shot group we pulled off was pretty impressive, especially when compared to a lot of the other Lead Round Nose loads that we've tried.

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. If you need a light recoiling round for practice on the range, this load from Magtech should be on your list.

Customer Reviews

Overall Good Review by Buddy The boatman
Overall good range ammo with good price. Only draw back is it's dirty shooting in revolver but I clean my guns after I shoot so no problem if you don't mind the clean up . (Posted on 2/23/15)
Good perfomance at a good price even with a little dirt. Review by Ralph
A little dirty but worth it. The price is reasonable for the high quality of the product. Get ready to clean your weapon thoroughly after use. (Posted on 12/11/14)
Great rounds for training Review by Darktemplar
These rounds are great. Great value. Shot all 1000 rounds and not a single problem. After shooting few hundreds I decided to shoot some of my GD 158gr +P and I can tell you these round will help you with your training and no need to waste your concealed carry rounds, they have almost the same kick, obviously they are not +P but they hold up very well for training.

Great product Review by Slim
I have only shot 100 rds. of this ammo so far, but it seemed to be very good for target practice. I was shooting
it in a S&W 686-6 revolver with a 4" barrel that I just recently purchased so I'm still getting used to it.
Shipment was fast, quality is good, & I would not hesitate to order this ammo again in the future. (Posted on 4/27/14)
Would buy again..... Review by David
Perfect for plinking no feed issues and work great in revolver too................ (Posted on 4/16/14)

Review of Magtech 158 gr LRN .38 special ammo Review by yosemite sam
I shot these for the first time today and was very impressed. They seemed to fire cleaner as evidenced by the powder residue left when I cleaned my gun. I had been shooting Remington 158 gr LRN but these were more than twice as expensive and the results were similar. Very happy with the price, quality, and speedy delivery. I will definitely buy more. (Posted on 11/1/12)
