Review of the Aguila Interceptor .22 Long Rifle Cartridge
Article reviews the Aguila Interceptor .22 LR for hunting, plinking and informal target shooting.
The Aguila .22 LR Interceptor is available in both a solid round nose bullet and a hollow point. I was unable to find any of the hollow point variety, but did acquire a few boxes of the round nose ammo. The Aguila Interceptor appeared to be carefully loaded with the bullets appearing to have an even plating without many flaws that are visible on many .22 LR ammunition loadings. The round nose bullet is pretty standard looking.
I shot the Aguila Interceptor through my H R; revolver, a Marlin .22 bolt action rifle, and a Marlin .22 semi automatic rifle. As I only had three boxes of ammunition, I did not shoot many through the revolver as it does not generally shoot hyper velocity loads well. The Aguila Interceptor shot well through the revolver however, perhaps due to the standard 40 grain bullet. The Interceptor .22 Long Rifle loading was fairly loud through the revolver. As I was shooting in front of an approaching storm front, I put the revolver away and loaded up the rifles. Even with a brisk wind kicking up now and again, there was no problem shooting into less than an inch at 50 yards with a less than perfect rest. A few groups from the bolt action Marlin was less than ½, the semi-auto didn't shoot quite as well. On a calm day, from a better rest, and with me not being in a hurry, I am sure that the Aguila Interceptor would do better.
I had brought along an apple and a few grapefruits to shoot to see how they would react to the higher velocity. While not a scientific test by any means, I did shoot one grapefruit with a standard velocity load to compare against the results from the Aguila Interceptor. The Interceptor .22 LR did make a bigger hole and do more damage to the grapefruit. I bet with the hollow point loading it would have been quite spectacular! The harder apple blew up quite well with the interceptor throwing a good size piece into the air.
For hunting with a .22 LR, every little bit of velocity means more energy transferred to the game animal. While I would not trade feet per second for lower accuracy this was not the case with at least the guns that I was using. Small game and varmint hunters should definitely give the Aguila Interceptor a try.
