    From the general consensus is that Aquila is low grade and somewhat dirty ammo. There are a lot of sites that offer good deals but from what I read the price of ammo is going up in the New Year. Lucky gunner.com is one that seems to come up often

    Remember the price between a 220.00 dollar deal and a 235.00 deal on a 1000 rounds is only less than 1 cent per round so are you going to want to do that much extra cleaning to save a penny per round

    I have used Aquila, have 1K rounds of it in stock. Mostly use Federal Champion and WWB from Wally World. Liking American Eagle lately, a little more expensive though. The dirtiest I have used is Privi Partizan. Shot a 50 round box through my G20 and it looked like I shot 1000 rounds.

    Lucky Gunner is also located in Tennessee, so to go along with shipping it also costs me a 10% sales tax.

    i have used aquilla and did not like it. misfires and jams mostly. i stick with remington usualy from dicks or bass pro when its on sale. there is plenty of good ammo out there, winchester, lawman, federal, american eagle, hornady, corbon, blazer, etc as far as price usually with the shipipng anything you save is small.

    I would shoot AM and WWB all day long through my G22. I shoot 100rounds of Aguila 9mm in a nonGlock and it was fine but I would pay alittle more to get better ammo. Just my opinion.

    The last 1000 rounds of 9mm I bought was Independance, although a little dirty not a bad range ammo.
    The last 1000 rounds of .40 was Federal and well you know how that shoots. All these were the lowest prices I found at that time per 1000.
