    Looking around for 45ACP, I found some made by Aguilla or Aguila. I'm assuming it comes from Spain, Mexico or wherever. I'm wondering if anyone here has used it and, if so, how it functioned?

    It is made in Mexico.

    They actually make some really unique stuff - from subsonic 22's (60 grain bullet) to 12 gauge shells that are about 1 1/2 inches long...

    That which I have shot has always worked well for me.

    I'll admit I've never shot their 45 ammo...

    I have shot around 1000 rounds or so of it with no complaints. It shoots better than Winchester white box in my opinion.

    I shot several thousand rounds and it worked very well in all my guns except one KAHR 45. The KAHR was a striker fired gun and would occasionally fail to fire with Aquila and UMC factory ammo. The issue was the gun and not the ammo. Good accuracy and the nickel plated brass was high quality and re-loadable. If I run across any more I would not hesitate to buy it.

    I have only used their 22 stuff but all of it is really good stuff...plus I'm so dang grateful to them to have started producing 5mm Rem Mag Rimfire again...I dusted off my 592 to send some groundhogs to heaven

    It's Mexican. It was the next cheapest thing to that dirty but reliable Wolf stuff. I bought a 1000 rounds at a gun show and my 5" Kimber Target II loved it! I thought it was more accurate than UMC. Not one jam or FTF. Cases are very reloadable. If I needed factory ammo I'd buy it again in a second.
