Define good. It goes boom, sends the round downrange and doesn't blow up your rifle from I was told when I asked.

Like the man said, define good. I quit using any Magtech ammo because I felt that they were unreliable and inaccurate. They are fine if all you want to do is plink at cans out to about 100 yards or if you had to defend your house against raging hoards of zombies. They are inexpensive and they perform like it.

Damnit... I just ordered a case too. I guess as long as it doesn't ftf fte I'll be fine with it. Hopefully the brass is at least nice :/
Edit: I see there's another thread on this ammo deal & some seem to think it's gtg! MagTech is seemingly under new ownership & there ammunition is now manufactured under tighter tolerances than before:)

I hope so I did not want to risk buying 1000 rounds and be stuck with it! Thanks for the feed back!

I just went out today with 200 of these rounds. We were nailing clay pidgeons at 200 yards every 5 to 10 shots at each one. this is from a standard sai m1a using irons (nm front). I say the stuff is definately worth the money

This ammo is made by CBC in Brazil. Magtech imports it.

While CBC and magtech both have had some bad lots in the past, this lot of 7.62x51 seems to be all good from what I am hearing

Nice, clean and shiny brass. Or local gun store owner had a few boxes of it last month and I openned up two boxes to see what they looked like.

Thanks. PSA is still working on getting me my 4000.

I didn't feel like paying $40 to $54 per 50 locally for it.

I recently picked up two 50 round boxes of this stuff for about $70. It looks like good ammunition from what i can tell, but i haven't had a chance to try it out in my rifle yet. Ill let you all know how the stuff shoots when I get a chance to try it out.
