The powerhouse ammo maker from Latin America, Aguila Ammunition, will now be bringing its extensive shotshell product line to the U.S. market, Gun Digest has learned.
The 54-year old company has re-branded its shotshell offering for hunters, sport shooters, home defense and law enforcement.
Aguila will offer a competition line for skeet, trap and sporting clays as well as an exclusive pigeon load. The line includes both 7.5, 8 and 9 shot in standard and high velocities. The company's traditional shotshell lineup includes 12-gauge, 16-gauge, 20-gauge and .410 in standard, high velocity and buckshot loads.
The manufacturer will also make available the unique Minishell, which provides good velocities in a 1 ¾” shell that allows for higher magazine capacities. The Minishell is perfect for over/under shotguns and is an excellent low recoil choice. It's available in 7 ½ shot, slug and buckshot.
“Aguila’s shotshell line has something for everyone, whether the application is hunting, competition, clays or home defense,” says Rod Taylor, Director of Manufacturing for Aguila Ammunition. “Hunters and competitive shooters across Latin America have relied on the affordable performance of Aguila for over five decades. We’re excited to show the U.S. market the Aguila advantage.”
