Magtech

What do you think of Magtech 9mm 115 grain FMJ? My range has it for $219.80 members price for 1000 rounds. Would be using it in my Micro9 and try it out in my UC2 (usually use 124).

I have never used the 9mm but had a bunch of the .45
It did ok. I felt it was a little dirty but never had a miss fire.

Same experience here. I've never used their 9mm but have several hundred rounds of it in 45acp.

No feed problems and all of them when bang!

I use to shoot it a lot in 9mm (124's) and never had an issue but before I'd get into a 1,000 rounds of 115's for your Micro 9 I'd try and run a box through it first, it may want heavier grains to function properly.

21 cents a round. Not bad. I find Magtech kinds dirty but never had any problems.

I agree pretty dirty but not had any issues with several different calibers.

I've only shot a couple of boxes and had no problems. Target sports USA has it for the same price with free shipping and no tax. They have several brands for that price. I see 9mm 115 and 124gr on their site for $209 quite often.

Went to the range today with the Micro9 and tried the Magtech 115 gr FMJ, 50 rounds no failures. Also put 70 rounds Blazer Brass 124 gr. FMJ through it with no failures! I'm very happy with the performance of this pistol.
