I was looking at the Magtech First Defense rounds (first time I have heard of them) and they sure look like a twin sister of the Corbon DPX. I believe the bullet weight is less but they are 100% solid copper.

"Trust the bullet that delivers deep penetration and devastating expansion..." Sure sounds like the same comments made by Corbon about the DPX. I understand these are somewhat more cost effective than the Corbon DPX.

Any comments regarding the above would be appreciated.

The main advantage is that solid copper will stay together unlike some jacketed bullets. I dont see a huge advantage over a good quality bonded core, but in my opinion they are good bullets overall and would be a good choice for carry ammo. Just be sure to buy enough to test out a few at the range before carrying them.

Below is information I found comparing performance on the CorBon DPX & Magtech SCHP. Looks like the same bullet with somewhat better performance from the Magtech (diameter after recovery.

Any comments?

Open attached document which contains results.
