What is everyone's experience with Magtech ammo. Bought some .38 Special at a LGS today.

Are they owned by the same co. that is Sellier & Bellot?
I've had nothing but success with both brands in 45acp, 380, and 357

Yes it is. From the Magtech home page:
"Magtech is a member of CBC Global Ammunition, the holding for a group of companies internationally active in the ammunition sector: CBC Brazil, Magtech Ammunition USA, MEN Germany and Sellier & Bellot Czech Republic."

I have shot tens of thousands of rounds of their 9mm and 5.56 FMJ offerings with no issues. It isn't the cleanest ammo but is far from the dirtiest. It is however reliable.

My experience has been the same as others (though I've only used it in .380): Magtech ammo is good enough for practice.

These guys use Magtech by the truckload and swear by it. They say it is as reliable as anything they've had. If it were particularly dirty, they wouldn't use it. They have to keep the guns clean and the amount of ammo they go through is staggering.

Just as an FYI, they also like Lucas gun oil, too.

I have shot several hundred rounds of their 5.56 77gr as well as both supersonic and subsonic 300 blk with no issues. The 5.56 has grouped very well out of several barrel lengths. I will be buy more if I am lucky enough to find some at a reasonable price.

I'll pile onto what's already been said, but I have several .50 cal cans full of it in various calibers and have never had a problem.

I can only comment on the quality of their brass, since a friend and I load .577/450 Martini-Henry formed from their 24 gauge shotshell brass. It's really excellent.

I have shot hundreds of rounds of Magtech ammo in both 9mm and .40 S&W. I have had zero issues with it and would not hesitate to use it for practice and competition.
