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!
Originally posted by BurtonRW: 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.
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 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
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).

"Ewe That Smell. Can't you smell that smell..." LOL!
Good experience with 230g .45 ACP with out issue from my 1911 and P220. Run with it.
