Hello guys got a quetion for ya. Anyone tried the mexican ammo called Aguila?
I fired some lead round nose and it a very dirty round, had to spend more time cleaning the revo than normal. Besides that what are your comments? The have a sjhp standard preasure round I think it is 158gr, anyone has any experience with it? as it looks like a good option for SD carry.

I can't place the SJHP's without research but that Federal LSWHP is most likely a 158gr Lead Hollow Point which has a decades long track record in this country. I carry the same basic load from Remington in my 38 when I carry it. I'd recommend it.

After the LHP ammo I'd pick either of the SJHP +P loads so you have a chance of expansion. I want to say that the W-Super-W is also Winchester ammo. After those then I'd pick the standard pressure Aquila SJHP.

The LRN ammo is likely to poke a hole in your target without doing much damage. That basic load was nicknamed "The Widowmaker" not due to its effectiveness on attackers but due to its lack of effectiveness. It was good at making police officers wives widows. Basically, its ball ammo for a 38.

As far as the age of the ammo, if its been stored well it should be fine. Here's a thread where we discuss this a bit more: http://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/index.php?topic=4501.0

The Minishells have been out for a few years. They are neat but they don't feed well in some gun designs. Unfortunately I don't remember which ones they work well in, I just remember that they don't agree with Mossberg as thats what I have.

i didnt know that they even made centerfire ammo, they supposedly make very good Rimfire rounds, ive never shot them but Guns and Ammo gave them a good write up a few years ago
