Aguila Ammunition has been a long-time manufacturer of ammo in Latin America, and recently, the company has made its intention to expand its distribution to the U.S. market well known. As the world's largest producer of .22-caliber rimfire ammo, Aguila Ammunition will bring plenty of offerings to U.S. consumers.

The rimfire line includes a variety of .22-caliber options, including subsonic and other specialty cartridges, with a .17-caliber offering and a few 5mm Remington Rimfire Magnum cartridges planned for later in the year.

The centerfire lineup includes common handgun cartridges with bullet options like full metal jacket (FMJ), jacketed hollow point (JHP), semi-jacketed soft point (SJSP) and semi-jacketed hollow point, while the centerfire rifle cartridges are currently only available in FMJ offerings. The shotshell line consists of a full assortment of field and competition options from .410 bore up to 12-gauge, including Aguila Ammunition's proprietary minishell—a 1-3/4-inch shell with reduced recoil and report—and pigeon load.
