Small sample of Aguila vs Centurion variation 10 rounds only:
Bullet seating OAL- Aguila 9 within .005 - 1 was .007
Centurion 8 within .008- 2 were .010
Cartridge wgt- Aguila was .3grn heavier

HP- Aguila HP smaller diameter but deeper, lead has less irregular deformity
Centurion HP bigger diameter but shallow

Crimp looks to be "quite" snug also
These were what they now are calling Semi Jacketed HP.

Was it as snug as the 17WSM Glass?

I didn't use a caliper on them, but the Aguila crimp wasn't as deep into the bullet. I doubt any other rimfire will be as tight as the 17WSM, even if Aguila was crimped as deep, the thinner 5mm case wouldn't have as tight a grip. They should be easier to dissect.
