A very interesting 9x19 round by Magtech with personal defense numbers and value pricing. The jacketed soft point projectile in this 124 grain load offers some good deformation at a slightly elevated price point, but nowhere near typical self defense round pricing. It offers a good middle ground between highly engineered self defense JHP’s and ball ammo, with better than ball ammo performance.
You can truly shoot the same thing at the range as you keep in your magazines for defensive carry purposes, and feel pretty good about the stopping power, reliability, functionality and accuracy. You’ll know the round because you train with the round, and the ballistics are above average on the load. With 1110 feet per second velocity and 340 ft. lbs. of energy, you can be assured that the cartridge delivers in the same zone as dedicated hollow point rounds, generally speaking. It doesn’t tout the highest numbers but it offers respectable ballistics. The feeding and fouling won’t be a problem because the modified design of the bullet allows for full copper engagement on the rifling and the engineering of the projectile is very close to standard ball ammunition.
