    Question Fiocchi Ammo--45 Cal--Good or Bad???

    I saw some Fiocchi 45 cal ammo for sale on Ammoseek.com. It was around $16 for a box of 50 ( JHP ). I need some practice ammo and this stuff is cheaper than Winchester White Box. Any Pros or Cons with Fiocchi Ammo?---Sturgis

    None that I'm aware of. I've used a lot of their 9mm and .40 - works just fine. Unremarkable, and that's a good thing.

    I've shot quite a bit of the .45 and 9mm and have not had any issues at all. It seems more than acceptable, and was cleaner than things like the Winchester white box ammo. That's a great price so I wouldn't hesitate at all to buy in quantity.

    I'm like grouse, I've shot a lot of the hardball and never had a problem. In fact for awhile I had a Hi-Point 45 and it's one of the only ammo's it would shoot consistantly without any problems.

    I still have some for my 12G. It has always worked just fine.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Good stuff. When you open your first box you will be surprised how polished each round looks. Functions well in 1911 and glock for me. $16/box is a good deal.

    I prefer it to most it her brands. It is clean, reliable, and cheap. I prefer Hornady for defensive ammo but if is what I could get I would carry the jhp
