Aguila Shot Shells Now in Academy

Aguila Ammunition and Texas Armament & Technology are pleased to announce that Aguila’s line of shotshells are now available in all Academy locations throughout the Southeastern United States.

Aguila’s standard velocity game loads are engineered to knock birds out of the sky.  They offer high quality, dependability and affordable price.  Available in 1 1/8oz loads in 7.5 shot with velocity of 1,200fps.  

“Academy Sports + Outdoors is the outdoor leader in Texas and throughout the Southeast”, says Patrick Thomas, Director of Sales for Aguila Ammunition.  “We’ve had a longstanding relationship with Academy and we’re happy to see our shotshell product within their store locations.”  

Industrias Tecnos, manufacturer of the Aguila brand of shotshells, utilizes a lead shot tower 74 meters in height, with a drop of 56 meters between the shot forming metering pans to the chilling bath at the bottom of the tower.  Shot towers provide the most spherical lead shot achievable utilizing a historical process that is rarely available today.  Tecnos is a fully integrated shotshell manufacturer producing primers, shotshells, lead shot and components.

Aguila shotgun shells are redefining the genre.  Aguila’s extensive shotshell line has something for everyone – whether the application is hunting, competition, clays or home defense – .410 to 12 gauge and everything in between.
