  • .45ACP 230gr FMJ, $302 shipped

    Pretty good price for brass-cased ammo at the armory.

    $280 + shipping.

    Never shot anything Aguila other than .22 but I think I'll give this a try. For $40 more than I can load .45ACP looks like a good buy if the stuff is OK. Is the brass good for reloading? I don't think I have any Aguila brass in any caliber, but don't know what their HS looks like.

    Not a bad deal at all.
    I've shot plenty of Aguila, mostly in my carbine and I love it.

      I've reloaded some of their brass, and it has no notable issues.

      It's not great stuff, but it's better than Seller and Beloit brass, for sure. I wouldn't expect ten or a dozen loadings out of the hulls, but they mostly work fine at least twice, and as far as I know, that's the most I've got on any of it. I had a few fall out after the first run through, (Maybe 10% or so, off the top of my head.) but as noted, S&B runs probably 25% at that stage.
