The Minishell is perfect for over/under shotguns and is an excellent low recoil cartridge available in 7 ½ shot, slug and buckshot.

“Aguila’s shotshell line has something for everyone, whether the application is hunting, competition, clays or home defense,” says Rod Taylor, Director of Manufacturing for Aguila Ammunition. “Hunters and competitive shooters across Latin America have relied on the affordable performance of Aguila for over five decades.
