Aguila Super Extra Copper Plated vs. Plain Lead Bullet



Log in to see fewer ads
I've been getting excellent results with Aguila Super Extra SV 40 gr round nose lead bullets in my Savage Mark II BV and my Winchester 75 Target Model. Has anyone compared the performance of the Aguila Super Extra Copper coated SV 40 gr round nose bullets against the plain lead bullets? I seem to see the copper coated being more easily available.

I believe they just started printing the velocity on the boxes. You can see it near the bottom of the box.

Thanks, this is what was shown on Academy's web site and I missed the "High Velocity":

I see where you are correct in the different velocities for the different Aguillas, copper plated vs lead. Bud's has the copper plated in stock for $1.76/box. If it makes any difference to you, my cz455 varmint evolution and my cz455 american and my friends' Ruger all shot the copper tip with better groups than the lead. Three different shooters taking turns on all three guns all got smaller groups with the copper tip at both 50 and 100 yards. Have you tested both?

The 40 grain LRN solid point SEHV are not listed anymore on the web sight, and I have not been able to find any at Academy. It was probably in June or July the last time I was able to buy the Pb SEHV. I have been getting equal groups with the cu washed. I was just used to the lead. I think my zero might have changed one or two clicks at 25 yd.s.

No clearance there, we bought them with the discounts just over $16/brick delivered from Brownells. I use these to shoot golf balls at 300 yards, pretty consistantly if connditions are right.
