It is PHENOMENAL accurate ammo in their high velocity 22LR loading, right there behind Ely & Tenex match loads, per surprising Guns&Ammo tests.

I haven't tried any of their centerfire ammo that I can recall, but the rimfire ammo is great.

I shoot both 9mm and 30 carbine with very good results.

I too get very good results with their rimfire ammo. It has become one of my favorites.

I've used some of their pistol ammo, and it has been reliable. I'm not accurate enough with pistols to determine anything more than that.

I've shot their 40 gr solid standard velocity target ammo in .22LR in Sporterifle competition for several years. It's as good as any ammo I've used and that includes some brands that are more than twice the price of Aguila. Quiet and very accurate.

It also does the job on woodchucks if you shoot them in the head. Pop, flop, problem solved. Never had one take a step. They just fall over.
Frequently wrong, never in doubt.

Aguila makes good ammo. It used to be described as "clean ammo from the 70s" (meaning a bit dirty) but it's surpassed that reputation now.

I second that. I don't recall any issues with Aquila.
