How many rounds do you go through on an average day at the range? 50? 100? 200? If you’re only going to be there for thirty minutes or less, 50 may be enough for you, but most shooters burn through quite a bit more ammunition than that in one session at the bench. And when you go to the range, do you rely on the gun store to have your ammunition in stock, or do you bring it with you? Some ranges will have your ammo, and some won’t, and in recent years they’re certainly less likely to have it at a moment’s notice. Having ammunition ready to go at home is a good idea, there’s just one problem, and that’s long-term storage. Storing ammo in a cardboard box for extended periods doesn’t always work that well, because the boxes can fall apart, for one, and for another thing they’re exposed to moisture and the natural deterioration that happens with time. Enter Fiocchi’s sealed cans for long-term storage.
All shooters should have ammunition on hand for whatever guns they own. How many rounds you have is up to you, but it’s definitely a good idea to have some around. Fiocchi’s Canned Heat is their line of ammunition that comes sealed in airtight enamel cans to keep them safe and dry as well as to prevent rust and the kind of deterioration that tends to happen. It’s a great idea, and Canned Heat comes in numerous calibers. Yet another great idea from Fiocchi – but then, after having been in business since 1876, it’s no surprise they have good ideas now and then.
At 170 grain these are moderately heavy for the .40 S&W. They’re FMJ and don’t expand on impact but instead tend to over-penetrate, so, as with any target time, you need to be sure of your target and what’s behind it. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1020 feet per second and muzzle energy of 381 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. There are 100 target rounds in this sealed can; ammunition is manufactured at Fiocchi’s plant in Ozark, Missouri. Their headquarters are in Lecco, Italy; the Ozark plant is specifically for U.S. sales. If you want target rounds that come in a ready-to-store can, you want Canned Heat.
