Default Magtech ammo any good?

I'm thinking about loading up on some .38's specifically 158gr SJHP for my police trade-in '79 Model 10.

Any issues with Magtech? Are they hotter or underpowered compared to other brands?

Thanks!

You're good to go. I use their 38sp ammo . Middle of the road load wise.

Not sure how much cheaper you can expect it to get. I was buying Magtech 9mm as my go-to, based on 1) price, 2) consistent performance and 3) small boxes that fit more boxes per bin/can. The only reason I stopped buying it was because one of my handguns was having stovepipes during fast-fire drills in a class, only with Magtech ammo. They are one of the only manufacturers offering true 5.56 (not .223) non-penetrator 62gr FMJ and 77gr SMK, so I do continue buying those.

I can't speak for their other calibers, but in 9mm and 5.56, Magtech's prices are consistently on the lower end of the spectrum, along with Aguila, PMC, PPU and Armscor.
