Squirrels hate this round’s copper-plated hollow point bullet. At 38 grains it’s light enough to leave the muzzle at a rate of 1,280 feet per second. That’s considered high-velocity, and it translates to a flat trajectory which carries plenty of deadly energy with it. When the CPHP hits soft tissue it spreads outward – not dramatic terminal expansion by any measure, but a catastrophe as far as Squirrel Nutkin is concerned.
Aguila is a Mexican military ammo manufacturer, but they’re best known in the United States as a rimfire specialist. Their primers are first rate, so you can count on steady ignition while you’re pouring this ammo’s clean-shooting bullets at critters.
