    Fiocchi .45acp JHP

    Thought I give a few comments on Fiocchi .45acp JHP.

    A bunch of this stuff has hit the local market recently price is quite good, retails for $23x50 as opposed to Remington green box (UMC) .45acp JHP which is $28x50

    So far I have fired about 100 rds through my Norinco Commander, the gun happily ate them up, flinging the brass to right rear. The rounds were landing right at the POA and at 10m was forming nice cloverleafs of connecting hits on the target.

    Fiocchi data:

    .45acp JHP 230 gr , MV 875fps Muzzle energy 390 ft-lbs

    I wasnít able to chrony them and canít tell you anything about the terminal performance. But they fed well, hit were I aimed and they are affordable. I will be using them for my standard load. JHP ammo is a bit thin up here with the Remington stuff the only other commonly available option.

    Fiocchi--I've shot their ball ammo loadings before. 9mm, 45acp. Never had any problem with the stuff. I didn't know they made the PD rounds. A shop called Ozark Sportsman I used to frequent seemed to carry alot of their ammo. Very reasonable back in the day compared to other brands. I used to buy alot of their shotgun PD ammo. I think I used to get a box of five '00' buck 3" 12ga for $2.95? Been a while.

    I have shot their 12ga before, 3" magnum #4 shot 1.75oz at 1375fps

    And that was the first 12ga I have ever shot, out of a 6lb 18.5" barreled HD shotgun. Yea, it kind of hurt, lol!

    UMC stuff is horrible, or for me it was, pretty reliable, OK accuracy, but REALLY dirty stuff.

    They seem hotter than WWB, but, that is a WAG since I basing it or felt recoil.

    I just found them on the sale rack at Cabela's and bought a few boxes of their JHP's in .380 also, anticipating my new Ruger LCP. Sure are tiny little things, all I shoot is .45!
