.17 Aguila: 2550 fps with an 18-gr polytip bullet!

Ski posted a picture of a box of preproduction .17 Aguila ammo over on the .17 Rifles board. The .17 Aguila is simply a .22LR necked down to .172 cal, for those of you unfamiliar with it. Anyways, the box says 2550 fps with an 18-gr bullet! That is slightly better than the .17 HMR but from a smaller case! I have no idea how they did it, or if the round will live up to those ballistics when released, but if thats for real it should give the .17 HMR a run for it's money. Imagine all the .22LR guns out there right now that could simply be rebarrelled (esp. 10/22's and 77/22's).

I'd probably buy atleast a barrel, just to see what it's like.

Unless, of course, it shoots like all of the other Aguila ammo.

I can stomach "stinky" ammo, but stinky, innacurate ammo...

Nope! :D

Like I said in my earlier post....

That was for the fact that if it ever comes out, I would buy a barrel.

Like I said....Unless it shoots like all of the other Aguila ammo.

If you don't have ammo, you can't see how it shoots...

Hence, I won't buy a barrel.....Until I see how it shoots, when it comes out in 15 years.

Capisce?
