Anyone shoot 22lr Golden Eagle Centurion

Post by dronning on Mon Oct 07, 2013 10:32 am

I have a chance to buy a case of 22lr Golden Eagle Centurion for a good price and was wondering if anyone has used it for bullseye.

Thanks I can deal with the extra cleaning as long as they are accurate.

If it is like the Aguila I have ransomed, it will group 1.5" at best typically in a gun that groups real Eley 1"     (50yds)

I bought a case after shooting 4 cases of Aguila SE. I have found it to be a little snappier. My hopes were that the slightly higher velocity would work better in my Marvel conversions. So far the jury is still out. I don't recommend it if you're planning to shoot it in a Model 41.

I am going to be shooting it in a Marvel.  Any insights would be appreciated!
 
Thanks

If this is the Aguila ammo in the dark blue box and says "Target" then I have shot several thousand rounds of it. It functions in any pistol that will function with the rest of the Aguila line, like SV and Pistol Match. It is plenty accurate for bullseye pistol shooting. I have shot a lot of it in a Hammerli 208s and I know of folks who shoot it in Hammerli Trailsides. It ought to function and shoot accurately in a Marvel Precision.
