You can google "magtech 9mm ammo review" and find several reviews. Seems OK from a quick read.

Some guns will shoot anything, others are more fussy.

Magtech is the only ammo that managed to get stuck in the cylinder of my 357 Blackhawk. I had to use a 20 penny nail and a hammer to get the empties out of my gun.

I've heard good and bad on them. I know Jerry Mickulek is sponsored by them.

I've run quite a bit of it in 9mm, .45 and now .40. I havent had any problems with it. The last batch of .40 I tried was pretty accurate.

Cheaper because it's from Brazil but not by much. I've shot a lot of it in 9 and 45, no particular problems. It seemed to foul up my 1911 more than UMC did, but I am not positive. Magtech is about the only brand that supplies affordable SWC in 45 ACP.
