Sellier and Bellot has been producing cartridge ammunition since 1825. The year 2009 saw one of the milestones in the history of the company, the Brazilian company Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos S.A. (CBC), also known under the name of Magtech, became the owner of Sellier & Bellot. Another group member is the German company MEN, a globally renowned producer of small-arms ammunition for the military, police, and commercial markets. Due to the merger into one group, the mentioned companies have become more competitive and rank among the largest producers in the world.

WHILE MAGTECH BRAND PRIMERS HAVE NOT BEEN IMPORTED AND OFFERED FOR SALE THROUGH AUTHORIZED CHANNELS FOR SEVERAL YEARS, THERE ARE STILL SUBSTANTIAL QUANTITIES REMAINING IN RELOADER’S INVENTORIES. 

IT HAS RECENTLY COME TO OUR ATTENTION THAT SOME RELOADERS ARE SUGGESTING IT IS ACCEPTABLE TO USE PRIMERS WITH CALIBERS THAT ARE NOT TECHNICALLY COMPATIBLE, E.G., 9MM LUGER/9X19/9MM PARABELLUM WITH SMALL PISTOL MAGNUM OR SMALL RIFLE PRIMERS

THESE COMBINATIONS CAN PRODUCE UNRELIABLE AND/OR UNSAFE CONDITIONS. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT DATA FROM AN ACCEPTED INDUSTRY SOURCE (HODGDON, NOSLER, HORNADY, SIERRA, CCI ETC) BE FOLLOWED PRECISELY WHEN ENGAGED IN ANY RELOADING ACTIVITY.
