Sorry, no experience with 117 gr but, 115 gr had served me well. 100s of rounds

What works in my gun may not work in yours.


Only one way to find out. Gotta shoot it in your gun.

Which round are you talking about?

Aquila made the IQ JHP in .45ACP (117 gr.) and in 9mm (65 gr.) so it is kinda hard to know which round you are talking about.

The Aquila IQ was a line of zinc-alloy JHPs that suffered from major fragmentation and shallow penetration.

Here's an example- http://www.firearmstactical.com/tact...2/article2.htm

It has been discontinued.

Given it's performance, I'd avoid it for SD/CCW use.

That leaves target practice and plinking. Kind of expensive for that. There are better options out there.

Amen. I want a round that will penetrate a foot or so.

Their 115gr RN bullets are pretty good and seem a little bit snappier than others. I paid $197 for 500 and liked them,

(Those were some pretty sophisticated tests, too, huh?)

Maybe these "experts" should make an appearance on "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader" TV show, because even a First Grader can coherently comprehend the difference between a living human being and a 55 gal. barrel filled with water let alone quivering blocks of ballistic gel.

Tiro is 100% correct. Such back yard ballistics test prove absolutely nothing when it comes down to what bullets do or don't do in living human beings.

I am locked oin mortal combat with cottontail, jackrabbits, and other small table fare much more often that with anything that need kill with a defensive round. A good shooting 115 gr that workds the slide will and addresses the sight pretty well is a real joy especailly when it was cheap. i feed 4 or 5 9 mm with plinking and small game loads. i use a 115 HP most of the time if I can find one in the appropriate price range.

I have one 9 mm that is on of my favorite small game guns. It is a Swiss Police P220 in 9mm. has the lanyard loop and the bottom release clip. It sights have been set by the sig shop as well as the treggier workd over. Capable of very good groups

So, if the number of gunfights you have been in are what it takes to be able to make such informed declarations, how many gun fights have you two been in that makes your opinions superior to those of researchers like Dr Fackler, Dr Roberts, Dr DiMaio, Dr Williams, Duncan MacPherson, Charles Schwartz, Beat P. Kneubuehl, and Eugene Wolberg?

Contrary to your empty claims, gelatin and water are valid test mediums.

Aguila of Mexico is a good brand and they make reliable ammo, but I'd never use their HP ammo for SD, just plinking/practice.

Rubsy, glad you asked this question. I've had what I think are problems with Aguila 124gr ammo, which I use in both my G26 & G19C. Mainly in the 19C I experience a failure to feed and sometimes a double feed. I've troubleshooted all the other possibilities and the only thing I can come up with is it's not a hot enough load due to the ports in the barrel.

I appreciate some of the other comments made here - the ones that are on topic at least... I come here for information, not for little boys in pissing matches.

For ****s Sake these threads wouldn't be so long if people actually just answered the *******ed question.

I've shot the 124gr FMJ Aquila in my G19 with no problems whatsoever...However the brass can't be used to reload 147gr bullets very well because of the canilure ring in the brass. Works well for reloading 115 or 124 gr bullets only....had feeding problems with reloaded 147gr fmj bullets...but the factory ammo was okay for me..

When I start reloading 150gr LRN bullets in my 9mm G17, I'll have to sort out the Aquila brass.
