I don't know why your dealer said the MagTec's were to hot. Just about all .45 ACP's should work. My son has a Full auto 1928 thompson, he has shot Walmart White box, Magtec and just about any other 230gr ammo with no problems. I'm not saying you can't find or reload a Too Hot Load, but the Thompson is very stout weapon. It has a Milled receiver (Not stamped steel). It could probably handle any kind of load.
