Aquila 62 grain 5.56: The new standard in ammunition (VIDEO)

Founded in 1961 and primarily known for manufacturing rimfire and shotgun shell, Aguila Ammunition has been gaining notice and popularity in the American firearms market in the last few years. Aguila also produces high quality rifle and pistol ammunition such as the 62 grain full metal jacket boat tail 5.56 round that we are looking at today.
Aquila designed this round for consistent accuracy at long ranges using the heavier 62 grain projectile to help maintain velocity and included the “boat tail” to provide stability during supersonic and even transonic flight. With an advertised velocity of 3,150 feet per second, this round certainly holds up to its design. Though it was engineered for long range performance, we have found this round to be a consistent performer at close and medium ranges also, making it a great choice for plinking, target or competition shooting as well as tactical training, and even small to medium game hunting.
