Both out of stock. I have some and it is OK but not great. I have gotten better groups with Blazer.

None of my guns like any kind of Aguila ammo.

I bought some to test compared to my Mini Mags and Blazers. I'll stay with what I have.

Out of 50 rounds I had 5 failures to fire and two stove pipes. Not the ammo for competition and certainly not for a pocket pistol to carry.

Sadly, none of my firearms like any particular brand.
There is no "find the brand y'er rifle likes."
That phrase is an internet sophistry that holds no value.
No rifle can make cr*ppy ammunition produce consistent trajectories.
All you have to do is look at y'er cartridges to understand why they throw strays.
Dents, dings, sloppy bullet seating, damaged drive bands, poor crimp, irregular skirt
all cause trajectory spread. When y'er cartridges look like cr*p, they shoot like cr*p.
It ain't rocket science y'all.

Mine likes the true SV round. As far as I'm concerned the 1130 fps stuff is junk as it's proven to be very inaccurate in everything I've shot it in. I order a brick off a website and it stated it was SV and that was it, no footage given. I wasn't aware of the 1130 fps round and that's what it turned out to be. I'll know better next time and this I have now has become ammo for my grandkids to shoot up.

Jaia - I understand its built to a price point, QC varies, etc., etc., but over time with multiple sessions in multiple guns with multiple ammo, some patterns do emerge for my guns & ammo.

To answer the question in the title of the OP's thread - Mine don't shoot Aguila SV particularly well.

It shoots mid-pack in my 10/22 carbine, although it is the worst in my T/C R22 and Tikka T1x. Didn't bother shooting it in the other rifles.

No great shakes in my semi-auto pistols either. At or near the bottom in accuracy, gave me multiple failure to feed rounds in my old Ruger Standard, and a 25% failure to fire rate (5 of 20) in my Ruger Mark IV the last time out. The Mark IV fired all other ammo rounds on the 1st try, as expected. Of the five Aguila rounds that didn't light off on the first try, four fired the second time around, and the fifth round finally ignited on the third try.

I will not be buying any more of it when I finally get through the two bricks that remain.

I hear ya' cabin.
But I'm a thinking y'er prone to an overabundance of optimism.

I've been tracking results for almost 2 years now.
Recording both muzzle velocities and targets.
When the cartridges are visibly beat to snot and mv's are all over the place,
I don't care who manufactured them, the results will be disappointing.
External Ballistics is why. Gravity, aerodynamics and physics, along with time of flight
allow those cartridge defects to deflect the projectiles away from point of aim.
Doesn't matter who made them, only how poorly they were made.

I had two IZH 35m target pistols that loved Aguila SV. Very accurate in them. Sold both pistols because parts are no longer available thanks to Obama's import ban. Tried the Aguila in my Benelli MP95 and Ruger MkII, and a shotgun gave better groups. I've got two bricks left, will let my grandson shoot it up.

Hah! I don't think I've ever been accused of that. But, I will relay your comment to my Significant Other. She'll enjoy that. She won't agree, but she'll enjoy it.

In my SW22 Victory and Ruger 10/22, Aguila SV is more accurate than several other makes of ammo in the same price range including CCI SV and Blazer. And until recently Aguila SV was less or equal in cost to other ammo I tested.

Not a political issue, jab., etc.. just a simple question here please.
"... no longer available thanks to Obama's import ban."
I don't recall a ban from back then. Do you know what it was called so I can look it up. Thx.
