    Magtech 9mm Nato Ball ammo

    Ran across this today. Appears to be a pretty warm loading at 1329 fps with a 124 grain bullet. Ordered some to try.

    The first indication a bad guy should have that I'm dangerous is when his
    disembodied soul is looking down at his own corpse wondering what happened.

    Away, away, away, down.......
    That page shows the test barrel as 8 inches so that explains the velocity, I bet itís closer to 1150 or 1200 FPS out of a service sized gun.

    Iíll be curious to hear how it shoots for you since gold dot 124 +p+ has been my preferred load forever.

    The Speer 124 gr. +P Short Barrel Gold Dot will go 1329 fps from an eight inch barrel and a little over 1200 fps from a four inch.

    Shot some of the Magtech Nato yesterday out of a VP9 and a Beretta 92G Centurion. HK shot into 2.375" at 20 yards with 4 rounds in 1.0". Beretta did 3.0". I didn't bring my chronograph, but ammo feels like +P. May get to shoot it out of a couple of HK P30Ls today.

    FWIW, Iíve chronographed MEN, Winchester and PPU NATO-spec ammo, and going from memory they went about 1140, 1164 and 1185 FPS respectively from my pistols. 124-grain +P HST went about 1180.
