If you're still willing to use Aggron, you can go for a somewhat gimmicky Metal Burst lead set:
-Stealth Rock
-Metal Burst
-Stone Edge
-Aqua Tail/Earthquake
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
(on a side-note, Bisharp somewhat does this better due to a somewhat better typing)

Or you can use an offensive Rock Polish Aggron to fix its bad Speed and take advantage of recoil-free Head Smashes:
-Rock Polish
-Head Smash
-Aqua Tail/Iron Tail
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Rock Head

Hitmontop's set doesn't seem to cut it. It's horribly walled by Ghosts, which can be remedied with this:
-Fake Out
-Mach Punch
-Close Combat/Hi Jump Kick
-Stone Edge/Sucker Punch
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Technician


-Rapid Spin
-Close Combat/Hi Jump Kick
-Stone Edge/Sucker Punch/Rest
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate

For Heracross, use Stone Edge instead of Brick Break. Also, don't use Horn Attack or Giga Impact. Not only do they provide no coverage whatsoever, the latter leaves you a sitting duck. Use Night Slash or Pursuit.

Also, for Metagross, I'd use the Agility set:
-Meteor Mash
-Zen Headbutt/ThunderPunch/Ice Punch
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 60 HP/252 Atk/196 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Leftovers/Lum Berry
Ability: Clear Body

Use Thunderbolt over ThunderPunch on Magmortar since T-bolt works off of Magmortar's better Special Attack. Brick Break and Earthquake are also redundant with one another (use Hidden Power (Grass/Ice instead of Earthquake).
