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.

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.

I think those 7500 rounds will last me awhile, but I have plenty of rimfire rifles and pistols to shoot it in. I shoot it in three .22 pistols, that 452 and a 455, 10/22, and a few others.
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..


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.

Good to great results with everything I've tried so far.

Colibris act like a pellet gun (quieter than some) and may not get through a pigeon's wing. Super Colibris are more useful for the small pests. Caught a medium sized squirrel up to no good - through the shoulder at about 30' DRT. Won't feed the last round from a Ruger rotary magazine. I leave an empty in the mag to give a little lift to the last live round.

Sniper Sub Sonics surprised me with a 3" group at 100 yards without key-holing in my 77/22. Great for kicking up pine cones, rocks, etc... Will "over penetrate" in a good way on small critters. Need to get more.

Tried some of the "Supermaximum Hyper Velocity" and it severely dented my steel rimfire target. Nothing else left more than a splash of lead except for a slight depression from the heavy Sniper Sub Sonics. A second hit in the same place would have went through. Looked like I used my .22 Mag on it. I wouldn't be surprised if it did overlap into lower end .22 Mag territory. Fun stuff.
