History of Magtech Ammunition
Magtech ammunition has been produced since 1926. Their headquarters are located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and they have plants in Minneapolis, Minnesota and in Hamburg, Germany. The ammunition is shipped from the manufacturing plant in Brazil to all parts of the globe. Magtech has a reputation for producing high quality ammunition that is consistent and available for purchase at a good price. Magtech sells ammunition in more than fifty countries around the planet and their ammunition is chosen by more than twenty law enforcement agencies across Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
Magtech manufactures each individual component of their ammunition in house for production of their ammo. Some other companies purchase the components that Magtech makes to assemble their own cartridges, and other components which Magtech manufactures are sold to individual reloaders for their own use. They produce calibers for civilian shooters that range in size and power from the diminutive .25 ACP to the hand cannon .500 S&W Magnum. They produce shotgun shells from the entire spectrum including: 12ga, 16ga, 20ga, 24ga, 28ga, and .410 bore. Magtech also manufactures ammunition for the military of Brazil including 5.56 mm, 7.62mm, .50 BMG and even larger calibers. Magtech produces more than just ammunition, their capabilities extending to the manufacture of gun parts and complete firearms for other brands. They forge barrels and perform CNC machining.
Magtech produces ammunition for a breadth of shooters, from those who shoot for sport, to hunters and those who need self protection. Magtech ammunition is available for nearly every application. The popularity of Cowboy Action Shooting has rapidly grown, and Magtech has met the demand with ammo precisely tailored to the specifications determined by the Single Action Shooting Association (SASA). They also produce shotshell brass without a primer for shooters who prefer to complete every step of their own assembly.
Magetch leads the way in terms of ammunition cleanliness at the range. Their CleanRange line of ammunition has Fully Encapsulated Bullets and primers free of lead which eliminates airborne lead. The shooter also enjoys a cleaner gun after a session of shooting, and a cleaner environment at the shooting range.
Magtech's solid copper hollow point (SCHP) bullet is an outstanding innovation. The previous standard was a copper jacketed lead core bullet, but the copper jacket can tear off the lead core, which is impossible with a solid copper bullet. When copper tears off the lead core, the projectile loses weight and expands less, which reduces energy transfer into the target. Magtech makes this bullet both for their hunting and personal protection lines of ammunition Magtech.
Shooters around the globe will continue to chose Magtech for their reliable, high quality, and affordable ammunition.
