I have had good performance from Fiocchi ammunition. All calibers.

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 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.

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.

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. :D

tks for these posts, folks... i'm due to pick up a P-32 and NAA Guardian .32ACP this week and have ordered the bulk (redbox FMJ) Fiocchi...

btw, i'm also a rimfire fan and recently scored a 1,575-round order of Fiocchi HVCP - it is a heck of a lot cleaner than CCI SV or Aguila SE in my .22s (S&W 317, MkIII RIO, NAA Sidewinder, HP22A) - and just as accurate, IMHO

Let us know how your NAA fares, please. I sold--and immediately regretted doing so--a Guardian .32 last year, and was considering another one.
will do... i've been waiting for some to show up on LGS on-line inventory, and several have popped up in the last month, so i took the plunge - it will be interesting to do a side-by-side w/the P-32
