Aguila ammo comes to U.S.

Aguila Ammunition introduced its extensive shotshell product line to the U.S. market. The 54-year old company has re-branded its shotshell offering for hunters, sport shooters, home defense and law enforcement.

As the largest ammunition manufacturer in Latin America, Aguila is now bringing its innovative line of shotshells to the United States. Aguila is offering a competition line for skeet, trap and sporting clays as well as an exclusive pigeon load. The line includes both 7 1/2, 8 and 9 shot in standard and high velocities. Aguila’s traditional shotshell lineup includes 12, 16, 20 gauge and .410 in standard, high velocity and buckshot loads.

Aguila is the only manufacturer in the market to produce the Minishell. The unique Minishell provides good velocities in a 1 3/4″ shell that allows for higher magazine capacities without sacrificing performance. The Minishell is perfect for over/under shotguns and is an excellent low recoil cartridge available in 7 1Ž2 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.”

The product introduction also features bold, new packaging designs.

“We expect pricing to be around $7.99 per box for competition sporting clays shells, $6.99 for traditional loads and $19.99 for minishells,” said Kristi Drawe, director of marketing for Texas Armament.
