When you think of products made in Italy, you automatically think class and quality, and with Fiocchi, that’s what you get. Their plant is located in Lecco, Italy, although they also have a plant in Ozark, Missouri, for U.S. sales. Fiocchi knows how to maintain superior quality control; they design and make all of their production equipment, so they don’t just control how it’s made, they control how the machine that makes it is made. Now that’s dedication. Fiocchi is NATO AQAP-110 and UNI EN ISO certified and all their ammunition is manufactured according to strict standards.
The .357 Magnum is another gem brought to the firearms world by Elmer Keith. It’s considered an excellent self-defense round and good for hunting small and medium game with deer possible if you’re within the right range and using the proper ammunition. But just because it’s extra-powerful doesn’t mean it doesn’t have accuracy going for it; testing shows the .357 Magnum has the same precision shooting capabilities as the .38 Special wadcutter. If you want a gun for personal protection with unique strength, it’s worth trying the .357 Magnum.
These 158 grain rounds are considered medium-weight for the cartridge. They’re Fiocchi’s XTPJHP rounds, so they deliver rapid energy transfer on impact while also beginning to expand immediately. Expansion is controlled by the jacketing for a deeper wound track, and Fiocchi’s use of Hornady’s XTP bullet makes these not just good defense rounds but great ones. This ammunition has impressive speed with a muzzle velocity of 1250 feet per second and punches brutally with a muzzle energy of 548 foot-pounds. There are 50 defense rounds in this box, and because Fiocchi makes them with virgin brass cases and boxer primer, they’re reloadable. Just having a good self-defense gun isn’t enough, you also need good ammo; order now.
