22LR Ammo

.22 Long Rifle ammo is an extremely popular, versatile, and cost-effective rimfire cartridge suitable for varmint and small game hunting as well as competition and casual target shooting. Though not powerful enough for self-defense, it has helped many new shooters and CCW holders train in the fundamentals of firearm proficiency in part because you can fire bulk quantities at cheap prices.

.22LR cartridges typically come in two major varieties: subsonic "standard velocity" loads and supersonic "high velocity" loads. Standard velocity ammo typically fires a 40 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 1,000 feet per second. "SV" ammo's avoidance of the sound barrier makes it ideal for suppressors and enhances close-range accuracy, an important benefit for match shooting. High velocity ammunition fires the same 40 grain bullet (or sometimes a lighter one) at a muzzle velocity of 1,200 feet per second and produces flatter trajectories and better terminal performance against game; it is also the preferred load for many semi-automatic firearms as it cycles their actions more reliably.

Most ammo manufacturers produce at least one .22 LR load; hollow points are obviously best suited for hunting, while basic lead nose bullets are used for target shooting. The bullets are typically plated with copper or covered in a variety of coatings to reduce lead fouling. Notable rimfire specialists include ELEY, which is a favorite of many competitive shooters, and CCI, which manufactures the famously reliable Mini-Mag as well as a wide variety of hunting and target shooting loads in every velocity and projectile category.

    “Aguila” doesn’t just mean “eagle” in Spanish. It is also used to refer to something large or powerful, or a leader. And that makes perfect sense, because Aguila is one of the world’s leading rimfire ammunition producers!

    If we had to pick a favorite 22 LR bullet, it would probably be the copper plated hollow point like this round is loaded with. Some people say they don’t notice a difference, but we’ve definitely appreciated how that copper plating helps to slow down lead residue accumulation which slowly weakens accuracy. And while the CPHP is a perfectly acceptable target shooting projectile, we also appreciate a bullet that expands inside small game. You never know when a varmint might rear its buck-toothed head.

    This cartridge’s bullet weighs in at 38 grains, and its muzzle velocity out of a rifle’s barrel is well beyond supersonic. Even if your semi-auto is a pistol, you can count on so powerful a 22 LR cartridge to properly cycle it. Aguila’s brass also supports smooth functionality, making this ammo a safe go-to pick no matter what you’re firing!

    We’re sure you’ll have no trouble figuring out what to do with over half a thousand rounds of 22 LR ammunition. You’ve got bottles to blast, cans to cancel, and varmints to veto. You just need a little help getting said ammo, but that’s easy – we want to send it to your doorstep.

    This 22 LR cartridge by Winchester features the ever so versatile 36 grain copper plated hollow point. At that weight it treats a rifle to a supersonic muzzle velocity, but this ammo’s just as suitable for handguns including semi-automatics. That copper plating isn’t just pretty to look at – it prevents rapid bore fouling so you can enjoy greater accuracy and less cleaning. The bullet’s hollow point unleashes rapid terminal expansion within small game to kill it deader, faster, but it’s no great crime to fire CPHP bullets during a relaxed plinking day, either.

    American brass, primers and propellant add up to smooth performance however you slice it. Order this 3 lb, 12 oz box of ammo and you’ll be able to do your best work soon!

    This big range pack of 22 LR ammo by Aguila is the perfect way to enjoy any firearm at the range. Bolt-action rifle, or semi-auto like the AR-15 or 10/22? Buntline revolver or compact semi-auto? It’s still going to love burning through 250 rounds of Mexico’s finest just as much as you will!

    This round’s 40 grain bullet pours out of a rifle’s muzzle at 1,255 fps – more than 100 fps faster than the speed of sound, and accordingly easier to aim thanks to its flat trajectory. The bullet does a great job of preventing residue from building up inside the barrel, as its copper plating prevents the lead in its core from gumming up the rifling. A round nose bullet like this may deform a little inside of soft tissue; not nearly as much as a hollow point, but we still wouldn’t want to be the squirrel who gets knocked in the ribs with a 40 grain CPRN traveling at 1,000 fps.

    Aguila developed their own intensely reliable rimfire primer technology, making certain it would live up to even an Olympian’s expectations. Each round’s non-corrosive primer and clean burning propellant complement its copper-plated bullet’s performance to keep fouling at an acceptable minimum.

    Happy to find

    I was very happy to find this product, I received the ammo promptly, it was well packaged, easy to scroll thru the website.

    Review by Cmgjerde (Posted on 2/22/2021)

    Flies like an eagle!

    I discovered Aguila ammo a number of years ago. It is my go-to in .22LR, and its 9mm 124 gr offering is also tops. (The 9mm offering I've used has a mid-case crimp to prevent the bullets from moving under high recoil, a problem that can cause FTF and FTE.) I believe Aguila ammo is made at a former Remington facility in Mexico. Component quality is superb. This .22 is very reliable. I shoot it in several guns; works very well.
