Made in Brazil. Fired in Bulk!

Magtech got its real start in 1926 when Costabile and Gianicola Matarazzo founded Fábrica Nacional de Cartuchos e Munições in São Paulo, Brazil. The Italian brothers quickly earned a reputation for the high quality of their hunting and target shooting ammunition, and sold their operation to Remington Arms and Imperial Chemical Industries in 1936.

Remington and Imperial renamed their new holding Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos (CBC), which is now its own massive, stand-alone entity. CBC began selling the ammo produced at their thee Brazilian factories under the Magtech label in 1990, and purchased Metallwerk Elisenhütte Nassau in 2007 and Sellier & Bellot in 2009.
