- Q & A
Fiocchi Munizioni, Fiocchi Ammunition, was founded in 1876 by an accountant named Giulio Fiocchi. At the time the company was founded the world of firearms was undergoing dramatic changes, making it a less than ideal time to start a new enterprise. First muzzle loaders were replaced by breech loaders, which was a fairly drastic change, one requiring major adjustments in ammunition production. Then the long-used black powder was replaced by smokeless powder, which required even more changes. Through it all Fiocchi persevered, and today they’re one of the major manufacturers in the industry.
At 69 grain these are relatively lightweight .223 Remington rounds, meaning they’ll race down-range at high speeds while also maintaining less felt recoil and reduced muzzle rise. These are Boat Tail Hollow Point, or BTHP, rounds, which means they’re going to begin to expand immediately upon impact. As they mushroom they also decelerate, creating a devastating wound cavity while preventing over-penetration. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2735 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 1380 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for varmint hunting and target practice.
When you place your order for this single box of Fiocchi ammunition you get 20 BTHP rounds. These boxes are just the right size for stashing in your range bag when you’re heading to your favorite outdoor shooting spot or stacking in your gun safe for a rainy day (or whatever the weather may be when you choose to use it). Because these are virgin brass cases with boxer primer, you can police your spent brass reload it, and get even more range time in. Fiocchi’s headquarters are in Lecco, Italy, but they have a factory in Ozark, Missouri, for distribution in the U.S. Whatever your plans are for your .223 Remington-chambered rifle, order now, and feed your AR-15.
