Aguila ammo

I recently picked up some Aguila .22 ammo. Saw it mentioned on a number of posts . It's rapidly becoming my favorite. Always priced well and the load seems to be pretty "hot". Even like it better than CCI ! I know they make other calibers as well but haven't tried them. I have a couple of 9mm, .223 and a .308. Anyone tried them in Aguila? Thanks in advance.

Can't speak for the .22 ammo, but a while back I tried Aguila and found it to burn dirty in both 9mm and .45 ACP. It's been a long while now that I think about it but once I have a bad experience, I am not one to make the same mistake twice.

As long as I can get Aguila .22 ammo, that's what I buy.
I used to only shoot PMC but when it went the way of the dodo I found that the Aguila is the same or so close it doesn't matter.
My posts are things I have tried or experienced. You may or may not wish to emulate them so read them with this in mind.

I ran through some aguila .22 when I was scrounging a while back. It worked ok in my sr22.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.

I have some Aguila .38 Special cases that I got in the last batch of once-fired cases for my K38. I found that the primers were of the crimped-in type. Had to ream them. Luckily for me, there were only a few out of the batch of 500. Other than the extra work of gettering rid of the crimp, they seem to be on a par with the rest of the assorted cases.

I've always liked Aquila. In 22, it's my second favorite after CCI.

Bought a case of .380, Haven't shot any of it but boxes are nicely made and the ammo looks "clean".

I don't know how "dirty" it is when shot but I don't much care cause I've yet to find "clean" shooting ammo.

I couldn't find any complaints before I bought.
