    I’m giving these a four star rating only because I haven’t shot any of them yet. The Hornady 55gr FMJBT w/can is my usual AR-15 bullet but seeing as how they aren’t available anywhere I decided to try these out. I weighed twenty of them and they varied between 55.0gr and 55.2gr with most being 55.1gr. I then measured the ogive to base dimension for twenty different ones and the spread was 0.008 whereas twenty Hornady bullets yielded a spread of 0.012. Neither these nor the Hornady are match bullets which is plainly stated in the RMR description of them but I consider them to be a suitable replacement unless I find out otherwise when I start shooting them.

    I bought these for plinking not expecting groups under 2 inch at 100 yards. I am getting 1.378 with 5 shots. I ordered a1000 more. I have not measured or weighed them.

    Have ordered several thousand before. Ordering now because it is getting harder to find bulk bullets. These have loaded and performed well before and I fully expect them to perform as well as military, which is an average standard.

    I shot these in my 26″ Varmint AR15 @ 200 yards and they shot MOA or less. That is without load development.

    I have purchased lots of rounds from this company. The honesty and customer service is what keeps me coming back. These projectiles are for 2 n 4 legged coyotes.

    I shot 50 just to make sure the bang switch worked and they did what they were supposed to do. Don’t have much to say about them; they are bullets BUT I LOVE THIS COMPANY and they are always my first stop when shopping for bullets.

  9. Joe Martin (verified owner)

    I bought a total of 2000 of these and weighed 100 of them. The lowest weight was 55 gr. the heaviest was 56 gr. and everything in between. The average was 55.424 for 100. Weighed 100 Hornady V-Max, highest was 55.3 and lowest was 55 for an average of 55.063. Weighed 100 Hornandy 55 gr. fmj-bt, lowest was 54.9 and highest was 55.1 for an average of 54.997 gr.

    Bought 2K of these. Loaded about 1K so far, and shot about half that. A small amount of weight difference, but not enough to make a big difference, for plinking they are just fine.

    Finally an honest outfit that isn’t price gouging customers looking for reloading supplies. Every order I placed arrived quickly even with USPS overloaded with parcels. They have earned my business. These folks must be running on coffee and very little sleep. There is plenty of room in the industry for a hard working company like this.

    As stated by others here……. these bullets are great! The company is even better Honest, Hard-working American Patriots!!! Stay in the fight my RMR brothers and sisters.

    I bought these for punching paper and ringing steel at distances under ~180 yards, with most of my .223 shooting done at 25-50 yards. They seem to be performing fine for these tasks. I previously shot Hornady 55gr and 62gr, and cannot see any noticeable difference in performance. However, there are a few fairly significant dimensional differences between Magtech 55gr and Hornady 55gr:
    1. Bullet length: Magtech 55gr – 0.7750″; Hornady 55gr – 0.7520″. Magtechs are quite a bit longer. Depending on your case trim length and COAL you may run into mag fitment issue.
    2. Cannelure width: Magtech 55gr – 0.0450″; Hornady 55gr – 0.0500″
    3*. Magtech is a subsidiary of CBC. Magtech 55gr is Made in Brazil, and imported in the US.
    Hornady bullets are Made in the USA. Not trying to knock Magtech down; just providing factually accurate information for others to consider.
