Aguila - Copper Plated Round Nose - 29 Grain 22 Long Rifle Ammo - 50 Rounds
When Stevens introduced the .22 Long Rifle in 1887 they could not hope, though some may have dared, that the caliber, unit by unit, would become the most prolific bullet made in the world. While the manufacturing process of getting the primer into the rim is more complicated than centerfire ammo, the cost of materials and components is what keeps the cost down per unit also. Admittedly it is not as cheap as it used to be, but it is still the cheapest bullet that can be bought and because of that it is used for everything from introduction the hunting. Consequently, when a premium round comes along, shooters who demand quality will not balk at the comparatively still affordable cost per round.
Aguila’s 29 grain copper plated bullet has a muzzle velocity of 1095 feet per second with 77 foot pounds of energy. It is ideal for target shooting, especially in competitions and the copper plating leaves less fouling behind when used in sound suppressors.
Aguila ammunition hails from Mexico and is now distributed in cooperation with Remington Arms. Used globally in formal competitions, it has a reputation and a reality of being among the most reliably performing rimfire ammunition on the market. The company employs strict quality control standards not only in production but also component selection to maintain its place at the top of the list of rimfire manufacturers.
