New CBC Ammo


    CBC Brazil is the parent company of two ammunition manufacturers: Magtech and Sellier & Bellot. For 2016, its two manufacturers are introducing new ammo loads.

    Sellier & Bellot

    Sellier & Bellot announced three new 300 BLK loads, two new 5.x28 loads plus a new 10mm load. The 300 BLK loads are:

    • 124 gr FMJ @ 2,165 fps
    • 147 gr FMJ @ 2,077 fps
    • 200 gr FMJ @ 1,060 fps

    According to the company, the 200 grain subsonic load was specifically made to be run in guns with an attached sound suppressor.

    The 10mm load uses a 180 grain FMJ bullet that is running at 1,165 fps from the barrel.

    The company has not released the performance specs on the new 5.7 loads, but one will have a 40 grain FMJ bullet and the other will use a 55 gr FMJ bullet.

    I’ve used Sellier & Bellot handgun ammunition in the past and always had good luck with it. It has run very reliably for me.


    Magtech introduced a pair of 300 BLK rounds. The first uses a 123 grain bullet that is loaded to 2,230 fps at the muzzle. The second is a subsonic round that uses a 200 grain FMJ bullet. It is rated at 1,060 fps.

    I’ve had significant reliability issues with Magtech pistol and rifle ammunition in the past, and the company has not been helpful in responding to my concerns. Hopefully, the company has improved its quality control and is making these new loads to be as reliable as other brands.
