Fiocchi's nickel plated shotgun loads are designed with nickel-plated pellets for less resistance in flight as well as higher velocities for increased energy downrange and improved performance on target. Plus, the pellets penetrate deeper which causes more damage to bones and vital organs.
Where are Fiocchi products made?
While most of Fiocchi ammunition is loaded at their plant in Ozark, Missouri, Fiocchi is also importing ammunition and reloading components from their plant in Italy because of the high demand the industry has been experiencing. All products are loaded to either C.I.P. or SAAMI specifications.
Muzzle Velocity: 1150 fps
Video Transcript:The Fiocchi family has been making ammunition for over 130 years. They've operated a factory in Northern Italy since they were founded, and they have demonstrated a commitment to the American market by opening a factory in Missouri as well. Fiocchi as a company has a lot of experience in manufacturing ammunition. As you might expect after having done so for more than a century. That brings me to a subject for this review-- Fiocchi Low Recoil, 12 gauge, 2 3/4 inch, double-aught Buckshot.
If you have a pump or break action shotgun, this is a good choice for home defense use. In a semi auto shotgun, you might want to pick something with more power to operate the firearm properly. Fiocchi reduced recoil by lowering the muzzle velocity to 1,150 feet per second. This makes the ammo easier to control than full power 12 gauge loads, which is beneficial in a self defense situation. Also, you can train longer without getting a sore shoulder if you use low recoil ammo.
At nine yards from a cylinder bore shotgun, this ammo had a fairly tight pattern, smaller than a human fist. That means it's effective indoors as well as out to medium defensive ranges outdoors. You won't have to worry about stray pellets hitting targets you don't intend to shoot. Given the history of the company and the quality of the ammo they produce, I would definitely use this Fiocchi Buckshot for home defense in my pump-action shotgun.
