magtech 9mm 124gr?

Recommended Posts

Nothing wrong with it.  It's just as good as any of the other cheap stuff.  For that price, you almost can't reload it much cheaper.  Go for it.

And, most shooters prefer the 124 gr to the 115 gr bullets.

 

Of course, some really prefer the 147's, but don't believe there are any

great prices on the 147's.

We're not shooting precision bullseyes here.

 

If it goes bang, flies out the end of the gun, and hits roughly where you aim, it's good enough.

 

BTW, I much prefer 115 grain 9 mm ammo over everything else.  And I've used everything else.

I'd go with the 115 for factory ammo. The factory 124 tends to be really hot.

What gun are you using ?

 

What are you practicing for ?  (Competition, carry, hunting, target ?)

This is true in Magtech’s case. Their 124s are... sporty.

Agreed

 

Many 124 gr factory loads are pushing 1150 - 1200 fps

I chroned Magtech 124 gr. 

10-shot average was 1110 fps via a 4.5" barrel.  PF=137.6.  76 deg F.

I was chroned with it at an Area 4 match and PF was 136.8. 

Competed with it just fine until I started reloading.    And, I used to buy cases & cases of ammo from the same vendor you mention, SGAmmo.com

A friend I compete with still uses Magtech and Fiocchi 124gr via a Shadow 2 and has no issues.

If you keep the brass for eventual reloading the Magtech stuff is slightly thicker.  Not a huge issue until you start setting 147 gr projectile deep.

I used to buy magtech 115's for .15-.16 per round. Of all the ammo I was trying at the time, it was the cheapest, and ironically I found it to be very clean. I didnt find it to be terribly snappy compared to other factory ammunition either. I say if its cheap enough, go for it.

I try to stick with the brand and weight that shoots best in my pistol.  There are enough "specials" going on that you should be able to find whatever you prefer
