I've used it before, a couple of FTF out of a brick. A little dirty, otherwise good to go. The one thing I didn't like was the bullet was loose in the casings for the ones I had.
I Karma-ed off a brick a few months back, but I don't the winner has been able to use them yet.
A couple SIGs and a few others
I had a Aguilla 124 gr 9mm go "click" at my last IDPA match. cost me a second or two racking it out...
Picked it up after completing the COF - solid primer strike, but no bueno / no bango.

very good ammo, and Aguila revamped a few years ago as well, to tighten up their QC even more.
My American Rifleman just came with an article about Aguila.
I just got a 228 back from sig who did their service plan and new night sights. The target they sent back stated Aguilla 9mm
I have shot quite a bit of 124 gr 9mm. Has always been good. Seems to be a bit soft shooting for 124 grain. I have been wondering how the 22 would work in my Ruger SR22, which works well with most ammo - except for some Winchester stuff that comes in a red plastic box. that won't cycle at all!

They offer two loads of that type. Colibri, and Super Colibri. Colibri won't generally make it out of a rifle barrel. The Super Colibri will. It's useful for taking care of racoons in the cage trap in my back yard without bothering my neighbors.
Aguila also makes a CCI Stinger-type round that is one of the two loads I have found that my S&W 317 will reliably light off.

I shot up a box of .380 in my LCP yesterday. It did what it was supposed to do. I remember seeing the brand in the early 1990s, so it has actually been around for a while.

Their High Velocity products work excellently in the Mosquito. This is from input from my son in law.

They also produce a short 12ga shell that a lot of 3-gun guys like because they can put more of them in the tubular magazine.

When they ask me, "Paper or plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual."
No issues with the 124gr 9mm. Have shot a few cases and seems decent enough.

I finally gathered some Aguila 22 Super Extra SV for a High Standard pistol....managed to put a single touching group size of little finger tip off the bench at 40' recently.
Best of all the dozen varieties I've been testing for what diet to feed my little 22 beasties.
So far this has been not only a great price but the best groups as well.
I know there's really good stuff out there, this is very good for my own purposes.
D. F. Geiger, author of ".22 Caliber Handguns: A Shooter Guide", has a high opinion of Aguila .22LR ammo. See posts #12 and #13 in this thread:
Shot it in .30 Carbine. CMP sells that. Pretty good. Shot in 9mm and .38 Special. Not bad. No troubles. Reloads ok for me.
|Too soon old, |
too late smart
I bought a few boxes of their .22 stuff. The first box of that batch was a disappointment. My S&W model 34 has always fired everything I tried to put through it. I never got 6 Aguila rounds in a row to fire. The stuff was also a show stopper for a very reliable little Beretta 70 that has always eaten everything I fed it. YMMV
Bought some 9mm 124gr. Went bang every time for me.
I shoot Aguila .22LR in my Beretta 87 Target. Specifically, Pistol Match (std vel). Accuracy is good, and it cycles perfectly.
As Skins2881 noted above, it is a little dirty – about the same as Federal AutoMatch (also std vel). But the bullets were firmly clenched in the Pistol Match cases. The cleanest-shooting ammo that I've found (by far) is Winchester Wildcat (hi vel).
|Lost, but making |
I've shot a bunch (about 4K to 5K rounds total) of their 124gr 9mm and 230gr .45acp and never had any issues. It's not overly dirty, and it's good cheap practice ammo.

Good experience with 230g .45 ACP with out issue from my 1911 and P220. Run with it.
