    Is this a good round or just another wolf round. Are they good for the price I am seeing around at Fiocchi 9mm FMJ 115gr 50rd/bx at $12.76

    IMO, Fiocchi is a top-notch brand. And they produce many different odd-ball caliber loadings for those really old handguns.

    I have a ton of Fiocchi in 7.62x39. Quality ammo, totally reliable for me and higher velocities than advertised. Don

    My only experience is with the .38 Special 125 gr JHP. I bought a half case of it because it cost less than the range ammo I was using. I like it...shoots well in my Smith J-frames. I would buy it again without hesitation.

    Acceptable range ammo, 40S&W I bought was made in Mexico.

    I've shot a lot of the Fiocchi range ammo and it's every bit as good as anything else I've tried. Better than WWB, for sure.

    The Fiocchi Extrema ammo uses Hornady's XTP bullet, and the 115-grain version is by far the most accurate self-defense JHP ammo I've used in my small CCW pistol.

    Good stuff. The pistol rounds I've shot tend to be on the warm side.

    Save that brass - great for reloading too.

    In 9mm and .45 ACP, Fiocchi ammo has given perfect function and excellent on target results when fired in a Glock 17L and a stock Colt Ser. 70 1911. HTH. Sincerely. Brucev.

    Before I started loading my own, one of my two favorite 9 mm practice rounds was Fiocchi's 123 grain flat point 9 mm load. This ammo duplicated the feel of +P defensive loads quite nicely, and shot point of aim in my 9 mm Glocks.

    Buy with confidence. They make excellent ammo.

    I have shot a fair amount of Fiocchi. Most of it has been in odd calibers, but I have shot at least several hundred rounds of it with zero problems. If it was easily available locally and at a good price I would have no trouble buying and using it.

    I've used their 9x19 (both the Italian stuff and USA stuff), .45acp (again, both the Italian and US-made stuff), and the US-made .357mag "extrema"

    Good stuff. :)

    Positive impression with their .223/55gr FMJ, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase ammo in other calibers.

    Fiocchi makes excellent 12 guage flechettes... too bad there were only 3 in a package.

    I just ordered 1000rds. of Fiocchi 9x19 for my (gulp) Taurus Pt99. It's the 115gr fmj stuff. I've fired Fiocchi in a 9x18 Makarov, but never in 9x19. I found the Fiocchi on an auction site for $200.00 plus $25.00 shipping. I thought that wasn't too bad nowadays:dunno:.
