To me it smells like 'normal' Eley ammo (they reportedly use/used Eley priming) but it has been a while since I have found Eley so .....I bought some because it was available and stored it. With all the comments about how it smells, now I have to shoot it. I’m curious.
I don't advertise how much .22 LR I have... I could supply a few small shops But I usually shoot 300-500 rounds a trip...When things were normal two years ago (between the 2014 shortage and the 2020 shortage!) Aguila ammo was often the cheapest you could get.
I tried a few loadings and was stunned that it is really good and better than some of the bigger names. For example, Golden Bullets and WW are two of the most inaccurate and failure prone ammos I've ever fired in my guns while the Aguila is as good as my CCI and Federal. JMO.
All the Aguila I've tried is as accurate as comparable loadings in the other brands. I say that because the hyper-velocity stuff is inaccurate no matter who makes it. Again, JMO.
I don't hunt so shoot mostly SV in my rifles and pistols (for accuracy). Both CCI and Aguila are consistent and excellent.
Two years ago, 5.5K rounds.

I find hyper-velocity ammo is extremely accurate when fired from a short barrelled pistol. Probably because it stays subsonic. But I have to agree that accuracy is terrible when fired from a rifle. I quit shooting my hyper-velocity stuff in semi-autos because it tends to pound the actions pretty hard. It's now only revolver fodder for me.Randy99CL said:All the Aguila I've tried is as accurate as comparable loadings in the other brands.

It can be hit or miss.
