    Fiocchi ammo

    I originally came online to ask about Wolf brand and Fiocchi, but after reading one extensive thread and another shorter thread on Wolf brand, I'll leave it alone lol.

    How good is Fiocchi ammo? I've never heard of it before seeing it in a catalog and was wondering about the quality.

    That's kinda what I was hoping to hear on the ammo. I asked my eldest Bro about it and he had heard of it, but had no knowledge of its quality.

    Thanks for the compliment, I found the hat online a year or two ago. I'm usually mistaken for a pirate by young kids (handlebar mustache and an eyepatch lol)

    I put 100 rounds of it through my .380 with no problems. Flash was a little more pronounced and it was a bit dirtier than the Winchester stuff I usually use, but no complaints, especially since it was $15 a box vs $25 a box.

    I've had great results with it. Won't turn down a deal on Fiocchi.

    It's good stuff, Italian-made. Fiocchi and the other European brands tend to be a little "hotter" than the US stuff.

    Fiocchi .32 FMJ is my current carry round in my KT P-32.

    All the Fiocchi ammo in 380 I have used has been very good.

    Hello. I have shot Fiocchi ammo primarily in 9mm but some other calibers such as .38 Special, .380 ACP and 9x18mm Makarov. I have never encountered any problems with it.

    Best.

    Actually most of it is made in the USA... well the pistol ammo, at Lake of the Ozarks Mo.


    I have had good luck with the .380 ammo that I have, and plan to get some of the hotter .32 ammo that is back ordered till in the summer months. Fiocchi has a nice web site with a catalog that list the ammo and fps and energy... which I think is nice. I normally order mine Fiocchi through either Midway or Ammotogo.

    I have, and shoot it, in both .45ACP, and 12ga. reduced recoil buck. It seems good stuff, imho.

    I've shot 9mm Fiocchi in both FMJ and hollow-points, in 115gr and 124gr and they were great.
    Mine was made in the United States too, as another poster pointed out earlier.
