    Default Fiocchi ammo, any good?

    I found some Fiocchi ammo but have never shot any. Any opinions on performance, value? I am looking at both 223 and 45 fmj loadings.
    Thanks, Ken

    Yes, generally very good. If the price is good get it.

    I'm usually not one to beat a dead horse, but I like the Fiocchi .223, as others have stated.

    I haven't shot a lot of it but it has been good when I have gotten it.

    I have not had the chance to do any testing but they say that Fiocchi and a few other foreign ammo manufacturers load their ammo a little hotter than most US companies.

    When it was new SPG had their 9x19 dirt cheap and i got a lot... but not enough. I miss shooting such good stuff. Should have bought all they had 2-3 years ago.

    I ordered my stuff from Dan's Ammo. It seemed very reasonable compared to everyting else I see plus for me shipping is as cheap as it gets. I ended up getting 40 S&W + 38 Spl so I can use the local county range (Mitchel Field) when it's too cold to take the 2 hr round trip to the outdoor range. I have seen quite a few folks using the 223 at the outdoor range so I figured I'll give it a try. Is the brass good to reload?
    Thanks, Ken

    The Fiocchi .357 seems to smoke a bit more than others, but does not foul the bore any more than other ammo I've used (UMC, S&B, PMC.)

    Let me also say that there is a Fiocchi USA which is often offered as "Fiocchi" but may NOT be the same ammo as the off-the-boat Italian stuff, I dunno -- capiche? If you live on the Nassau/Suffolk border it apparently works fine indoors but NOT necessarily in Islip, Ridge, Calverton...
