Default Magtech m80 ball

Does anyone have any experience with this ammo ? I usually reload for my rifles but the price of this ammo is pretty good.

If the bottle neck cases are anything like the pistol cases don't buy them with the intent to reload them. The ammo shoots OK but once you use them that's it. Eddie

I have a friend who shoots them in his 308 Garand. He likes them and does reload. HTH

Any Magtech ammo I've ever shot was great stuff but extremely dirty.

I have actually reloaded a few of their cases from once shot range pickup, a couple times. No problems. I actually necked a few down to 260 Remington and no problems with multiple cycles. Being a military grade case I even had to outside neck ream the formed 260 cases. Still no problems yet.

But, honestly, this is better ammo, cleaner and far better cases after firing. https://palmettostatearmory.com/fede...ds-xm80cl.html

Years ago when my brother's police department went from revolvers to autos, they gave all officers their revolvers and divided the leftover ammo between them. He brought home around a dozen boxes of Magtech 38 special. I shot a lot of it with him and found it was quality ammo, quite accurate. We both reload and used the brass over and over. After getting my first CMP carbine, I have shot several boxes of Magtech M1 carbine. Again, good quality ammunition and the cases reload fine. Never shot the 308, but all my experience with Magtech is positive.

I have had excellent dealings with Target Sports USA.
