That's the catch with Fiocchi from my experience.

I haven't noticed any difference in Fiocchi's .357sig range ammo from other .357sig range ammos I've shot, but I don't own a chrony so my opinion is subjective.

On the other hand, while the 124-grain Fiocchi Extrema XTP in 9mm is about the weakest milquetoast 9mm "premium" round I've ever shot the 115-grain Extrema XTP is the most accurate of all the ammos I've shot in my micro CCW 9mm. It seems to be the hottest standard pressure round I've found. I checked the boxes and whereas the 124-grain Extrema XTP is made at the Springfield MO plant the 115-grain Extrema XTP comes in a different box with the CIP logo on it.

I asked tnoutdoors to test the Extrema 115-grain XTP for confirmation but I'm sure he's got a lot of requests for specific rounds.
