Default How's Aguila ammo?

I'm thinking to buy some bulk ammo for range fun or break in new toys. I usually use gun show reload and it has work fine for now. But I'm thinking to try some of these online bulk order and found Aguila ammo pretty cheap (just a tap more than steel/alum case ammo. So how's Aguila ammo quality? Any first hand experience?

I have shot plenty of the .22 to find that it is reliable and fairly accurate. No issue with duds of any kind either.

There was an Aguila thread about a week ago...

I shoot 9 and 45 Aguila at the range frequently. Like it. Try sgammo

Shot a bunch of 380s. Worked well, shot good enough for any kind of practice.

the brass reloads decent but not my favorite if that matters to you

I like there 22lr ammo a lot

I have had good results in with there 40gn LRN

there 20gn quiet rounds are a lot of fun in revo, lever, or bolt guns, but won't run a semi

I've used about 3K of the 9mm 124 gr and it's the dirtiest ammo I've ever seen. Read reviews that it was clean and reliable so I bought 3K worth. Wouldn't buy again unless insanely cheap. It's just too dirty.

winchester defender. mine's not for sale but if you can get one you'll never look back. i imagine any 12 or 1300 winchester would work, but i know the defender is one of, if not the only pump that'll reliably cycle the mini-shells. need to get some of them actually.....turn my 7+1 into a 12?+1 or so.

I should note though I had zero failures and were otherwise good. Just really really really filthy.

I shot 4 or 5 boxes of Aguila .32ACP. It was dirty, flashed, and felt weak.

I've only used the Super Colibri. No problems. They always go bang.... or should I say "POP!" They do stink though.

I've used 30 Carbine and .22. It's always worked for me.
