Has anyone tried their sub-sonic ammo? If so how is it accuracy wise?

Thanks

I've tried both the Aguilla subsonic HP and Solid in my Izhmash. The hollow point did fairly well at an average of .555" for 20 groups at 50yds. The solid didn't do as well at .675". As a comparison, the best load, Wolf Match Target, averages .434" in this rifle. The only other subsonic I tried in this rfle, Remington's, was the absolute bottom dweller on a list of 32 different loads at .810".

fast twist??

A friend of mine tested the 60gr Aguila in his AMT and the result was the projectile hitting the target sideways! I think for this ammo to shoot well you would need a fast twist barrel.

Just picked up a couple of bricks of Their Subsonic loads

Both are 40gr solids =The Aguila SE (Super Extra) and a loading I'd only just read about + Their SV Golden Eagle 50/50 Match Pistol.
I've shot the HP SE loadings with good accuracy in the past, so It'll be interesting to see how the solids perform.
The Golden Eagle :confused: = gotta see how my Hi Standard likes the stuff, also if the target rifles like it.
I've been a fan of the various Aguila rimfire loads from their Colibris to their 30gr Hypervelocity load. Oh yea, their SSS too if I could just figure out what it's good for in the rifles with a fast enough twist (1/14" or faster) to stabelize those long heavy bullets.:p

Split Opinions

The posters here seem to run 50/50 on Aguila ammo. My experience with their Match Pistol ammo is good. The crummy ammo brands I have tried seem to have a few things in common: Dirty burning powder, squibs, unburnt powder spewing out the muzzle, failure to fire duds, jamming of gun due to residue buildup. I plan on trying other Aguila ammo but some shooters have been unhappy with it, depends on who you ask???
