Thinking of trying the Aguila 12 gauge 1 oz 1275 fps ammo for Sporting Clays, Has anyone used the shells? Any opinions?

Yes, i made a purchase of several flats at the U.S. Open. I like them.
Nothing negative to say about the hem.

I ordered them from Academy.com and they sent 1 1/8 oz 1250 by mistake. They crush targets with authority but kick too much.

Still would like to find the 1 oz.

I am a recent convert to Aguila. Especially the 1-1/8oz load of #8's at 1200fps. Have also shot their 1250fps 1-1/8oz and 1275fps 1oz loads and yes, they kick slightly to moderately more than comparable brands. Our club seems to rotate primary ammo suppliers every few years, Kemen, Rio, Fiocchi, Clever, etc...and I've shot them all. The Aguila shells are the first ones that I have ever shot and actually felt like I hit the targets harder. Smashes them. There are 3 downsides: made in Mexico, horribly obnoxious glue used to seal the flats and they are slightly dirty at the choke end of the barrel.

Must not be that big of a problem since you bought them. How is that any different from made in USA, France, Italy, or wherever?

Because Mexico is dropping drugs in this country like it is candy and killing our kids.

I guess you don't see a problem with that.

Yeah. I would say that 90% or more of our country's drug problem is the result of actions and activities undertaken by Americans.

It is a huge and ugly problem but we as a country own it. Certainly there is a foreign ingredient to it but without American crime driving it the issue would not be nearly so serious.

I haven't had the opportunity to try this particular product but if the opportunity comes up I would give it a try.

Sobrepuesta,

I can only assume from your screen name that you have some affinity to/for the hispanic culture. That's fine and certainly not trying to insult you or anybody else here. I always try to buy American first. I don't feel good when I buy Mexican (or Chinese for that matter) first. When it comes to shooting, it seems like most of the nice things are German, Italian or other European. They have a tradition and track record that speaks for itself. Mexico isn't exactly synonymous with fine-anything shotgun related, other than yes, smuggling them. My issues with Mexico are political, social and economic; not personal. Aguila is my ammo of choice right now, while I can still buy it and before Trump builds the wall! (j/k)

Patrick, formerly of Rio gave me a few boxes at Nationals last year and I thought they were very good. I am no fan of other Mexican ammunition but these are different. Aguila hired Patrick away from Rio. Just look at the job he did for Rio. I have known Patrick since he started with Rio and I have bought a lot of ammo from him when I had the pro shop at SACA.

Don't read too much into my user name. And yes, let's build that damn wall RFN.

But let the trucks packing Aguila shells through because I evaluate products by themselves. In other words, I don't worry too much about what other gun related stuff Mexicans do or do not do well.

Are they loaded heavier or faster than stated specs? Do they measure speed at the muzzle like EU makers or after the muzzle like US makers do?

My distributor has these POR and I'm curious to know more about them.

When I looked they had 1 box of 1 oz 1275fps. The shipping is more than the box so I will pass until $25 worth is available.
