Giulio Fiocchi founded Fiocchi Munizioni – Fiocchi Ammunition – on July 3, 1876. Giulio was an accountant when he took over a floundering company that only produced small caliber ammunition, but it didn’t take him long to master the world of ammunition. There were significant changes going on in the gun world at that time; for one thing, muzzle loaders were quickly being replaced by breech loaders. And it wasn’t long after Fiocchi’s founding that the use of black powder was almost entirely done away with. One way Fiocchi stayed ahead was by designing and making their own production equipment, which is something they still do today. They’re known for quality ammunition at reasonable prices, and if you’ve never tried their ammo, it’s time you did.
At 55 grain these are fairly lightweight rounds. They’ll zoom towards your target at terrific speeds and still deliver a powerful punch. They’re FMJBT rounds and won’t expand on impact, and their Boat Tails make them more capable of resisting cross-winds and maintaining a balanced trajectory, making them good for long-range shots. Each round flies towards your target with stunning speed at a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and tears through your stationary targets at a muzzle energy of 1281 foot-pounds. This ammunition is ideal for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this box of ammunition. If you own a .223 – and that seems a safe bet, since you’re looking at this ammo – you know what a big appetite those guns have, which means you know 50 rounds are just a little snack. Of course, a 50-round box is a nice size for toting off to your favorite outdoor shooting spot in your range bag and also great for stacking up in your safe, but you need more to spend real quality time with your rifle. Order one box to try Fiocchi’s ammo out; order multiple boxes to give your rifle a hearty meal and spend some serious time honing your marksmanship skills. Fiocchi manufactures their ammunition at their plant in Lecco, Italy, but does have an Ozark, Missouri, plant for United States distribution. Order now, and feed your rifle.
