- Q & A
There are quite a few reasons to be a high-volume shooter, from the value of improving your marksmanship to the many self-defense scenarios you should master to the fact that it’s just plain fun to shoot. But one thing’s for sure, if you’re a high-volume shooter, you need to find quality ammunition at a reasonable price. You don’t want to feed your gun just any ammunition, after all, because you could end up with any one of a dozen problems including the need to replace your gun’s barrel (or the entire gun). For good quality target rounds at a reasonable price, give Fiocchi a shot (pun intended).
Fiocchi was founded in 1876 by Giulio Fiocchi, an accountant who decided for some reason to get into the ammunition business. Right as he took control of the factory in Lecco, Italy, there were a couple major events happening in the world of guns: breech loaders were replacing muzzle loaders, and smokeless powder was replacing black powder. Both those changes had a massive impact on the ammunition business, and not all companies were able to adjust, but Fiocchi managed without any problems. One reason could be that they design and make their own production equipment, giving them greater quality control and the ability to make repairs and adjustments on site. Whatever the reason, they got through it, and almost 150 years later they’re still going strong.
These are 170 grain rounds, making them moderately heavy by .40 S&W standards. They’re FMJ and so do not expand on impact; target rounds are prone to over-penetration so it’s vital to have a good backstop. Each round flies down-range at a muzzle velocity of 1020 feet per second and hammers your stationary target with a muzzle energy of 381 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. There are 1000 target rounds in this sealed can; these are Fiocchi’s Canned Heat rounds, stored in an airtight enamel can to keep them safe from moisture, debris, and the normal deterioration that can take place with time. Ammunition distributed in the U.S. is manufactured at Fiocchi’s plant in Ozark, Missouri. Whether you want to burn through the entire can or store it, order now so it’s there when you want it.
