.22 aguila

Post by private citizen on 2/29/2012, 3:47 pm

Has anyone tried Aguilla from CMP lately? They have two, SV and "target".

Some one said that recent production is lousy with too many duds.

Anyone have experience?

I'm shooting my 4th or 5th case of Aguila from CMP. I have not noticed any degradation in the quality. It always goes bang in my Marvels, 'tho sometimes the bang is a little soft. It is reasonably accurate...much more than I. So long as I keep the chamber clean I have no feed or light tap problems.

My Marvel loves it now that I went to a 7# recoil spring. I use the SE, not the one they call Target.

Rimfire Ammo Test

Post by AllAces on 2/29/2012, 4:54 pm

Here's a link to a test of over 50 different types of .22 ammo. It is a little dated now and Aguila is not included, it is interesting data.

I just bought a brick of the Standard aguila to try in my ruger, and after about 200 rounds I have experienced about 20% failure to fire rate. I know others that shoot it in Pardini's and Walther GSP's with no problem. I guess the ruger just does not like it. So I'm back to the CCI standard velocity in paper boxes.

Ric, I have seen Rugers have issues with just about all ammo. Its a chamber tolerance thing not the ammo, in my opinion. I have never had a failure to fire with the many cases of Aquila I have purchased from the CMP.

I tryed it and it would feed fine....but I had alot of light loads and a few that didnt even cycle the action......its a shame too as it was very accurate off sand bags....maybe I just had a bad brick becuase lots of peple like it.....now I tend to stick with CCI Std, Blazer , or Auto match .....I can usally find one of those 3 ....

If you want the best grade of aguila, buy the eley sport in the purple box, its the same bullet and charge but in eley cases, its about the same price and made in the aguila plant in Mexico.

TF

Last year: Eley Sport. 1st half of case ok...really good groups. Second half...many fail to cycles. One box of 50 would run perfectly...the very next box would have 10 FTF. Yes I did clean the gun.

Switching ammo resolved the FTF's.

Very frustrating

I had good luck with what i had, but its just cheap made ammo from Mexico, guess that sums it up. You buy cheap stuff you get results worth what you paid.

Ive used the eley sport never had any issues that I can remember....But the gun shops in my area never keep a consitant supply of anything....from month to month it changes so I just either go to Dicks and get the CCI Std or Dunhams always has the Blazer ammo in stock and the blazer stuff is very surpisely accurate and consistent....may not be the go to for 50yds but for indoor 50ft it is just fine.....
