I don't know if it is any good or not, just that it is the least expensive .22 LR ammo that I've seen since before the Newtown, CT, school shooting on 12/14/12.

The Aguila HV stuff is awesome. Especially the lightweight projectile type.

Splatters rabbits about the same as the HMR.

That shop had two pallets of it on hand.

It's reliable, accurate (in my guns, anyway) and most important, AVAILABLE.

Don't be scared of it, it's awfully good stuff.


That makes me want to go and try it. Albeit, I'd probably only buy a couple 50rd. boxes first to test accuracy, in my rifles and pistols. I see a lot of it around my area. Pretty tempting now..


Just buy a brick. It's great stuff.

Because it's more accurate in my rifles, and as good as I can shoot with my handguns, and CCI ISN'T always available, though things are better now than two years ago.

Some folks even call it "Mexican Mini-Mags" because it's so reliable in most guns. That's high praise, in my book.

We all tend to get "focused" on what we like, and don't want to change our ways. Sometimes, trying something new is good. This IS one of those times.

I can't wait for the temps to break and be able to get out and shoot some groups. Been wanting to try some of that Aguila in my rimfires since last year but just haven't gotten around to buying any. I fell in love with TAC-22 and haven't bought anything else. The deal is though if I never tried TAC-22 I would not of had an alternative to the mini mags I like to shoot. It's nice having options.

Just picked up 2 bricks of Aguila super maximum. They only had the hollow point ones, wanted the solid point. They make awsome tree rat rounds, they remove heads.

I really like the Tac 22 shoots great in my M57 and is fairly reasonable!

The local W-M has 1,000 round boxes of Winchester/Olin M-22 for $50.87 or bulk packs of the 555 brand for $27.75.

These are probably the least expensive per round prices that I seen for .22 LR ammo since before the elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT, back in December 2012.

Bravo

Went to the Field & Stream store in Harrisburg PA a few months ago and the had the 1000 round and the 500 packs of Winchester M-22. Funny thing they had the 1000 rounds priced the same as the 500 packs. Needless to say I bought all the 1000 round packs up that they had for the 500 pack price. They had eleven 1000 round packs. Haven't even shot any of t his stuff yet but for 0.02895 cents a piece it don't matter how it shoots.

Not much experience with Aguila 22 LR. Bought a few boxes to try when the weather allows.

Hopefully not too far off topic but late last summer I found some Aguila Silver Eagle 22 mag ammo. Not finding anything else I picked up 2 boxes. My Savage 93 loves them! Best groups it ever shot at 100 yards. Wish I would have gotten a few more. Hoping to see it on the shelf again soon.

If you have a 10/22 sporter and desire to shoot the Aguila 60gr SSS ammo, Volquartsen is liquidating both their 1:9" and 1:16" twist SS muzzle weighted barrels for $150.

bsa, got an email from TargetSports today and they dropped the price of the Aguilla again. Really should try a brick. At $32.99 and $33.99 respectively, you can't go wrong. I compare both of these to CCI equivalents.

I'm gonna pick up another brick of the Super Extra just for the handguns.


I think "Mexican Mini-Mag" is a good description.

Also, will use to test my 452 coming back from CZ Custom Shop in a couple days after shortening the barrel, threading, and a trigger job. Total $92 for the work. Can't beat that, I don't think. While grilling Harlan on the work done I asked him what to expect as far as accuracy. He said "Better than before". Can only imagine how that will be because it would drive spikes before. grin

tikka, that's a decent price. Too bad you gotta go all the way to a case for the free shipping.
