Aguila Rifle Match Competition 22LR – 100Yard Testing

| June 4, 2016 | 2 Comments

Last weekend I came across some of the new Aguila Rifle Match Competition 22LR ammunition. I am not sure if my local shop had the price marked wrong at $2.15 a box, if it was a sale price or if it was truly cheap match ammunition. I was sure of one thing, I was going to purchase at least 5 boxes to try.

This is a continuation of the 22LR ammunition testing I started here http://www.dayattherange.com/?p=4691 only this time I would try this ammunition out to 100 Yards on 3 inch targets.

Before testing I utilized Otis pull through cleaning patches, one wet with CLP followed by a dry one. To foul the barrel I fired 10 shots off target before firing 5 shots on target for a scoring group. Weather conditions were overcast, 70 degrees.

CZ 455 Varmint — Nikon Target EFR 3-9

10/22 Kidd Barrel — Tactical Innovations Receiver– Meuller APV 4.5-14

Under the current testing conditions this ammunition did not produce groups consistent with other Rifle Match branded ammunition. To rule out me having an off day, I decided to trying the same test with Federal UltraMatch this time in the same rifles. I would clean the barrels again with the Otis pull through patching system, one patch wet with clp and one dry patch. To foul the bore I would fire 10 of the Federal UltraMatch ammunition off target before firing 5 rounds on the 3inch target. Conducting the exact same test as I did with the Aguila Rifle Match ammunition.

For the price Aguila Rifle Match is good plinking ammunition. I did not have any failures at all in any of these rifles, but Rifle Match Competition ammunition it is not. I honestly believe the Aguila SuperExtra High Velocity shoots better than this lot of Rifle Match Competition ammo I had. At 21 bucks for 500 I thought I had stumbled upon the greatest deal of the century, though not as accurate as others with the Rifle Match Competition brand this ammunition is still capable of providing much fun while on the range and at this price it is the cheapest 22LR ammunition I have seen in 5 years.

  1. Interesting. You put a lot of work into the article.

    I would like to see some numbers to go with the pictures.

    If no measurements, a ruler or scale next to the target, so we could estimate group size, would have been nice.

    The ultra match groups appear to be about 1.5 inches and the Aquila match about 2.5 inches. Is that close to the actual size?

    The Aguila secret is PISTOL match. Out of my CZ455, it’s statistically indistinguishable from UM22 .

    My experience with Aguila RIFLE match was similar to yours— good ammo, but hardly “match”.
