Got 2 boxes of .22LR today by this company. Never heard of it before. The LGS has 5 more boxes. Any thoughts?

Aguila is a long-standing ammo company from Mexico. Their ammo is some of the better cheap practice ammo. I've shot a bunch of their stuff in various calibers with no issues.

I am fond of their 9mm range ammo. Strong and clean, well made to boot. I purchased some Aguila 22 LR, but haven't shot it yet.

Great! Hoping the 15-22 will run with it.

My 522 handles the HV stuff without a hitch...the Ely primed SV target loads will if the action is clean and lubed well...the powder has an odd acidic smell to it when it's fired but it is accurate enough to be fun in the SIG...you will enjoy it

I have some assorted boxes of 22lr in my stash for around twenty years,several other brands also.
I was always a tinker in younger days with different ammo.
It used to beat most of the garbage remington put out.
Remington put out some dandy match grade but it was for U S Mil.
Got a few cases of that and its sweet.

Mostly what I shoot in 22. Better quality than most of the bulk stuff from Fed/Win/Rem, not as expensive as quality target ammo.

I've ran a ton of Aguila .22 L/R Super Extra through my 10/22TD and a bunch more through my Beretta Neos.

Great ammo!

I shoot their .38 Super and .38 Special, and consider it to be very good ammo, better than some USA made brands.

It runs fine in my 15-22 but it smells awful.

Someone was at Classic!!!
I haven't shot their .22 but have lots of their 9mm stuff and it is good to go.

I reload every thing I shoot. I do not like the Mexican stuff because I find two many flash holes off center of the primer pocket. I also don't think the brass grips the bullet tight enough to achieve proper bullet pull. I do not throw it away but save it in case brass gets hard to find.

I shoot aguila .22 LR. Not the best, but not bad ammo. Better than expected for the price. Have seen Aguila in 9mm, but never used it.

Good pricing and wonderful for bolt action 22lr rifles and 22 revolvers.
Really did not have a lot of problems in our 22 auto rifles.
Well priced.

They also make a powderless .22LR. Not a typo. 20gr. bullet propelled by the primer only.

It won't cycle anything (obviously), but it will clear the barrel of a 10/22 with impressive velocity and is obviously fairly silent.

Fun to play with, but I wouldn't use it for anything serious.

Their SSS 60 grain ammunition tumbles out of just about everything I have shot them out of.

Mine eats it up just fine. I buy Aquila .22lr ammo at Academy pretty often and the local indoor range I use often has it on the shelf too. It works fine in all four of my rimfire guns. I'd compare it to the old Federal Bulk pack we used to see...the stuff in the purplish box from Wally World or the blue box from Academy.
