That Magnatec 10W-30 semi-synthetic is a good looking oil.
Noack Volatility = 6.95 % (very low)
HTHS = 3.18 cP ( high, for comparison M1 10W30 = 3.0 cP)
KV100 = 11.6 cSt (a bit on the thick side for those that like that)

That 10W30 grade is a natural winner, if you don't need that cold starting below 0F (-20 C), then it naturally makes a low volatility oil. Formulate it to be a little on the thick side and you get a good strong 30 grade that would work for most people.

In Australia our Magnatec 10W30 is even thicker (KV100 = 12.4) and it's rated SN and A3/B4, I've used it and found it to be a very smooth oil.

Amsoil's 10w30 is at 4.1% NOACK....is that what this thread is about? Unclear from the title.

For those that value Noak above all else (everyone has their preferences), this oil is a winner at under $20 USD. I haven't seen it for some time around here.

We all have our reasons for where we choose to spend our money but...

it was illegal? Can you share a link to this violation of the law?

Instead of saying that, you could've posted the NOACK of Chevron Supreme 10W-30 and everybody would've been happy. grin2

As well as $15.88 recently on Rollback. Should have got some but the stash is full.

There have been many good UOA's for the Magnatec 5W30 here on BITOG

This is a link to a Magnatec 5W30 and Magnatec 10W30 set of UOAs done in the same '12 F150 Ecoboost (both semi-synthetics)
https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4317342/

After 9000 miles the 10W30 gave 14ppm iron wear and had 1.9 TBN left. The finishing KV100 was 9.44 cSt, which is still a 30 grade oil. Excellent results in a tough turbo engine. Having said all that, the 5W30 Magnatec gave very similar numbers, and the 5W30 has now been upgraded to full synthetic.

Yeah SR5 I would roll with Castrol Magnatec 5w30 over the 10w30. Nothing wrong at all with the 10w30. I think the 5w30 having more specs met is a bit of a bonus here. But if I were to run a 10w30 this Castrol and Valvoline Maxlife would be my top 2 picks.
