So I have a M1903 rifle and it seems mechanically serviceable. The only ammunition I can get hands on is the Aguila...The rifle runs this ammo fair..except it seems the ammo is just barely powerful enough to run the gun. Part of this issue is weaker cartridges...quite a few of these in every box!

Is anybody else with a M1903 Winchester shooting the Aguila ammo?...If so does the ammunition have enough power to 100% run the gun or is it just my rifle/my batch of ammo?

I have a 1903 and bought some of the Aguila when it was available. What I've shot has been ok with just a few fail to eject. I've only shot a couple of boxes but it does seem to be under powdered.  Love the gun by the way.  Jay
