Solidly in the midst of the moderately hot bonded jacketed hollow point 9mm defense cartridges, this offering from MagTech is worth a look if you are still trying to find a cartridge for your favorite 9mm for defense. It is neither an ultra-premium offering (by price or by numbers), nor a bargain basement range ammunition: simply it is a solid performer with good numbers and a projectile that offers additional benefit to stopping a threat.
By the engineering of the semi closed bullet cavity; the 124 grain projectile and the speed this round does pose a risk of being a bit of an overpenetration threat, but not overtly so. It has a good velocity of 1165 fps and load of 370 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle. It also tends to feed in, and cycle most mainstream firearms with ease. The Round is definitely a nice addition to the field of 9mm self defense rounds. With the “Barrier Blind” concept now taking on ever more steam, this is a quality load to test theories with if you are looking for something that can perform at that level.
With the pretty reasonable price point, it’s definitely worth a look at these rounds if you are still evaluating personal defense rounds or if you need a range round that is a hollow point to get used to the concept and to train with.
