Is this the good stuff? I bought two boxes to try in my Gen 1 p-32. Italian made ammo.
I have had good performance from Fiocchi ammunition. All calibers.
I have had nothing but good luck with Fiocchi---all I use now.
Had 300 blackout Fiocchi pop a few primers with flattened primers on some of the others a couple years back. Seemed like the loads were inconsistent, possible overloads. Never had a problem with 32 S$W, 9mm, 45acp, 9 Mak, 357 mag or 223. Its not my first choice in ammo but goes boom with reasonable accuracy.
I like it , runs well in my 32s
Is the Italian made Fiocchi .32 higher pressure/higher velocity than the USA made Fiocchi?
It's the only ammo I run in mine. Flawless so far.
I chronographed both the blue box American-made Fiocchi .32 Auto FMJ and the red box Italian-made item, out of my P32. I haven't seen any significant difference. Depending on the time of year, velocites of both are between 810 and 850 fps. I thought the Italian version would be hotter, but was not the case.
From what I've measured, S&B FMJ is usually about 50 fps faster.
Thanks for the info!
It's my edc and range ammo for my P32.
yep edc ammo here as well... need to try the S&B as i also chronied the Fiocchi and velocitys didnt meet their specs.. My handloads run close to those velocities, but i wont carry handloads
I've carried S&B too. I'm sure it's hotter. It feels like it. Had a batch of bad primers with S&B. I don't think it's that common but I went back to Fiocchi just to be safe.
I haven't shot S&B lately, but they do have some history of "hard primers" that some guns could not always ignite.
Also tried the S&B, had several hard primers that failed to ignite....went back to Fiocchi and have always used it since, for carry and practice.
Fiocchi FMJ 73s in our P32 also. I buy Fiocchi for my Kahr 45 also. My 9mm uses Remington UMC FMJ and my two 380s use Federal American Eagle FMJ.
Never had problems with Fiocchi or S&B - both good, always have gone bang for me, and don't burn filthy. I'm carrying some old S&B in my P32 with silver-colored bullets ... which aren't really SILVER-silver, just imitation silver, so I guess they're mainly only good for imitation werewolves.
