    I haven't personally used that brand, but haven't heard bad things about them.

    edit: Oh, they'er HPs, no idea how well they expand. I doubt there's a lot of data on these.

    Thats why im interested. Looks like a good deal on some cheap bulk HP. I did some google search and read that the HP on the aguila does not expand super great but it might work well going through heavy clothing and light barrier type environments.
     
  4. Are you just looking to use it for practice, or for actual self defense? For practice, sure, get it. If you want real SD ammo, spend the money for proven stuff, there's no reason to cheap out when your life is on the line.

    I'm not looking for self defense at home gun ammo.

    I use speer in my under bed in the safe gun.

    I also carry speer GDHP when I work ;) .

    Im just interested in it as a possible SHTF/Zombie (run-out-of-the-good-stuff) addition to my stash :big grin:

    I use Agulia .45 ball ammo for target practice and have nothing but good results. Its pretty dirty though.

    Is that the stuff without a copper jacket? if so, keep it out of polygonal barrels

    I've used some of their other cheap ass 9mm. Ran fine but a lil dirty.

    I wouldnt use that for defense ammo though.

    just ordered a case of this from Aim, but I don't know when it'll be shipped. Could be a few weeks, as they're back ordered. Good to know that it shoots OK. Cheapest .45 bulk that I could find.
