    Is this stuff pretty good? I just bought some because it was the only .45's I could find.

    I bought some 230 ball, a few years ago, to run through my Thompson. Worked fine. Little bit hotter than US-made ammo.

    I appreciate the input Alpo. I'll be feeding it to my Colt. :)
  4. I've had good luck with the Magtech ammo, ARB. I've used their .45 and 9mm stuff and found it to be pretty much on par with the Winchester White Box stuff. I've also reloaded Magtech cases and found them to work fine.

    Had some problems with the .357 failure to fire, comment was made that the primer is a little hard. But put em back and they will fire again. Last box of .38s had one out of 50 fail to fire. This was in my 686 revolver.
    Fed a box to my Colt, ate em no problem, in the .45.

    I prefer to use magteck ammo in 45acp. Its a whole lot more accurate than blazer brass thats for sure!

    That's a little disconcerting. I've got 15000 magtech small pistol set back. Guess I'll run them in the 9s, and save the Winchesters for the 38s and 380

    Never bought any of the .45 ACP, but I had some problems with the Magtech .44 Magnums. I had some that just didn't sound right when fired, sounded like squib loads and the bullets wouldn't make it to the target at the 50 yard line. Probably 5 or 6 out of the two 50 round boxes. But like Pistol said, the brass was good and reloaded nicely.
  9. My Para .45 liked the Magtech! & so did I..

    Magtech is the only factory ammo I run through my .45, They perform well. my 9mm likes it as well. I have loaded the Magtech brass and it loads well and performs well after reloading.

    I have used Magtech and have had no problems whatsoever. I have shot 9, 40, 45, and 380. I think that it is good stuff.

    MagTech works fine. I like it better than S&B and Blazer. No issues whatsoever.
