    Quality ammo? Any experience or opinions?

    I bought a few hundred rounds of Magtech .308 win

    I have since reloaded the brass 5 times and haven't split a case neck yet, primer pockets are still tight, and this was through a lr-308 which is tough on brass.

    Consistent enough for general use?

    I used the 150 gr loaded to .308 win specs

    It was as good as any factory ammo I have bought.
    I would buy it again as a source of brass to reload, and enjoy shooting it to get the empty brass.

    I shoot magtech in my 9mm, works as advertised.

    Know of no reason 7.62 would not.

    Thanks guys

    I've shot mag tech in 9mm and 45 too. No problems. That's why I was interested.

    I've shot their 380/9/40/38/357/45 and all were GTG.
    I would not hesitate to buy or shoot their 7.62 NATO.

    I've run about 50 rounds of the Magtech/CBC 308 Win through my new M1A with no issues. I'm getting consistent 1" five shot groups at 50 yards with factory iron sights.

    I have shot a bit of it and was happy with it.

    I just bought a half case of it in .308 but have not fired any. I have however shot and reloaded it in 3 or 4 pistol calibers

    I just got scolded on PM my kirgi for having an unfired scout squad in my safe for 3 years. That's what I'm looking to add a case of the mag tech for.

    That is disgusting. You should be ashamed. How can you have a rifle like that and not fire it for 3 years? My guns get shot ASAP after I take possession, often the same day.

    Forgot I bought it?

    Forgot where I put it?

    Lost safe combination?

    Series of broken arms?

    Amnesia?

    Illuminati conspiracy?

    Two young kids that keep me busy?

    The MagTech is what I've shot. CBC in Brazil makes it. I've got some boxes marked MagTech and some CBC.

    D'oh! You are asking about rifle...

    :rofl:

    Standard model with synthetic stock. 22" barrel with standard flashhider.
