Aguila Ammo

I know this is after the fact, but I just bought me some Aguila 124 FMJ ammo from http://SGAmmo.com. $197 for a box of 1000 and I thought that was a decent price.

I've used Aguila in 22LR with no problems so I figured at that price I'd get some good range ammo. Thirty bucks give-or-take higher than steel-cased Wolf seemed fair to me.

Anybody had problems? Thanks in advance.

I used 2000 rounds of Aguila .223 that I purchased from sgammo and didn't have any problems. No experience with their 9mm as I stick to Speer Lawman and Ranger NATO for the range and Speer GD and Winchester Ranger T for HD/SD in 9mm.

I just finished 500 rounds of 124gr (also from sgammo). No issues at all and I've already reloaded some of the brass multiple times too.

I'm glad to see 124gr so readily available and at really about the same price as 115gr.

good factory loads. It's pretty hot at 1200+fps out of my G17. The brass sucks to reload due to the little indentation in the case though...it tends to bulge out and cause cycling issues after a couple (or less) loads.

What resizing die do you use? Why wouldn't the resizing operation take care of it?

I'm had no issues yet but I don't keep track of reload count. I've probably not reloaded any any more than 3 times yet.

I've been using 158gr Aquila .38 spl and it has been very good for me.

No problem with their 9MM in a pistol. The cases bulge (more like a blister by the case head) in my full auto sub-guns. They're trash after that.

Thanks for all responses. I do not reload so reuse of the case is not an issue for me. I was mainly concerned with reliability. I have had no trouble with Aguila .22LR ammo so was hoping the centerfire stuff was alright. Good price, IMO, so I stocked up for range use.

Price quoted for 9mm 124 gr above is still good as of 10/31/12 as I just ordered some.

I've bought the same. Not a single issue and I like that it's 124gr. Nice small boxes too so they pack into an ammo case well. I hate some of these huge boxes that are way bigger than they need to be.

I've never shot any Aquila but I do believe I read somewhere that the manufacturing facilities were originally owned by one of the major America ammo makers.

Remmington is the American company you are thinking of. They own a piece but (my opinion) that does not mean they have a hand in the day to day operations or R&D. It could be a simple way to buy into a market they may not otherwise get a piece of.

Well, I for one am glad they are around producing (as of now) quality ammunition for 9mm.- One more producer that can potentially fill the void if Dear Leader gets re- elected. Perhaps we won't have to wait around for the Swiss stuff months at a time to hit the market when the usual suspects can't meet demand.

This may explain the Aguila's brass quality. R-P (Remington) is excellent brass also.
