MagTech 7.62x51

I'm new to the forum & my M1A Scout, (New in the Box). I've lusted for one since I was 14 years old, Finally got it!! I'm not a novice shooter, grew up shooting all sorts of long guns, spent 5 years in the Infantry, but I am new to the M1A.

Just a little background and I have searched & will act on some info I've already learned about cleaning & lubrication of my new rifle, (Which certainly could have contributed to the failures I experienced).

All that said, have any of you ever experienced Failure to Fire issues, (Like 3-4 out of 10 rounds) with the MagTech ammo, (Gold & White Box of 50, says CCB on the box, I believe, It claims to be & appears to be "Virgin Brass"),?? I have purchased another type of round & will try them when I get home, later this week. Just trying to see if there have been any problems with this ammo....

There are several threads here regarding magtech 308 ammo - you may want to look a little deeper in past posts. I have haven't had any problems with it. Shoots fine - not very dirty - good brass - biggest drawback is they have raised the price on it and I can't buy it as cheap. Did you clean and grease your new rifle before using it ?

After the initial fiasco, yes....Even had a 13 year "Arizona Marksmanship Team" armorer disassemble, gage, & check the rifle for me...Still experienced the failures afterward....

I've run hundreds of rounds of Magtech through my M1A, it works great and is accurate enough for minute of man. The virgin brass is a plus too, especially for the price. Maybe a bad run?

Thanks from darinh

I just got 500 rounds of that stuff as well. I have yet to shoot any of it yet thought.

I haven't heard any issues with it though.

Can you post pics of the primer area of these rounds?

Have you tried to re-fire the Failed round?

I've already learned loads & look forward to continuing to learn from the obviously vast amount of experience available here.....In fact, if not for what I've learned already, I would have been compelled to drive to Illinois & discuss my initial experience with my Bran New Springfield M1A.....This is the most money I've ever spent on a weapon & sure did experience a catastrophic "Heartbreak when the very first trigger pull went "CLICK"...

Get out and hunt down some real military surplus ammunition to feed your new battlerifle. No more clicks w/o recoil. Check out this listing and use it to know what would be good/safe for your rifle.
Mil Surplus ammunition manufactures for the 7.62x51mm
