Fiocchi's 45 Auto Canned Heat ammo is now available! This new product launch has created a lot of interest since its 2011 Shot Show introduction in Las Vegas receiving favorable reviews from all attendees!

Fiocchi's canned heat line of ammunition represents a leap forward in ammunition storage technology. This 45 ACP ammunition comes packaged in a sealed enamel can which is designed to keep your ammunition dry for long-term storage preventing rust, electrolysis, and deterioration from ruining your investment. This ammo is perfect for use in your 1911 or any other 45 ACP chambered pistol to shoot at the range this weekend or to tuck it away somewhere saving it for a "rainy day".

Each round is brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.

Video Transcript:

OK, here's something truly unique. Italian ammo maker Fiocchi recently released this new line of ammo called Canned Heat. Now, there's nothing really special about the ammo itself. It's all about the packaging. If you've ever gotten one of those old military surplus sealed cans of ammo, then you know that the contents can last a long time as long as they're not exposed to moisture. And that's the idea here. Canned Heat is a sealed metal canister of ammo that's designed for long-term storage.

Now, Fiocchi doesn't put an exact date on how long it will last but really it should last as long as it stays airtight. So since we don't have a couple of decades to really test that, we did the express version and buried it in the ground for a few days. Then we dug it up and for good measure dropped it in bucket of water and left it there for another day or two. Then we cleaned it up and took it to the range.

The aluminum container resembles a can of peanuts and opens the same way. There's a cardboard buffer under the top and a little desiccant pack inside with the ammo to help absorb any moisture. The ammo was completely dry when we opened it, so it seems the container seals well.

And while I don't recommend you actually bury it yourself, the Canned Heat should last a lot longer on the shelf than a normal cardboard box of ammo. And when you're done with the ammo, the can makes an excellent candle holder.

Shooting the ammo didn't really bring any surprises. The rounds we tested were 230 grain 45 ACP with a normal reloadable brass case, a non-corrosive primer, and a lead-core copper-jacketed bullet.

We shot a few rounds side by side with Fiocchi's standard cardboard box packaged ammo and found the Canned Heat to be slightly hotter with a noticeable but not significant difference in recoil. Reliability was just fine and none of our test guns seemed to mind that the ammo had been submerged in water for 48 hours. Accuracy was also good, with a very nice group from the bench at 15 yards.

So if you're interested in stashing away a few extra boxes of ammo for a rainy day but don't want to worry about it getting corroded while it's stored in your secret basement bunker, then check out Fiocchi's Canned Heat.

Customer Reviews

liked the cans, sturdy, resealable, reusable, well made. liked the ammo have only shot about 50 rounds so far cycled fine through a glock 21 and 30, hope they continue to produce this item, hope the price continues to improve Review by SaltwaterCowboy
hope to get a great shelf life from the product, an affordable packing would be nice to cut down on noise, but would not affect me purchasing it again, cycled well and was clean in my bore. better than some but not the best. a good bang for the buck i thought. keep it up (Posted on 2/25/12)
good stuff Review by jmac10
hopefully fiocchi continues to make this stuff in other caliber. however it would be nice to have it stuffed with packing material that would keep it from rattleing around so much. (Posted on 11/17/11)
Good Value and Price Review by Blake
I bought this ammunition in order to give myself better ammunition shelf life. I tend to buy ammunition in 500 round lots and have run into storage issues in the past.

This Fiocchi ammo gives you shelf life, relatively clean shooting ammunition, and consistency coupled with a little hotter round.

I will definitely buy this ammunition again. (Posted on 10/15/11)
I was amazed that in two days the box was on the porch !!!And what a great idea to can them !!! Review by Tootall
Great Company (Posted on 9/8/11)
neat product Review by Joel
This is a pretty cool offering. Fired great on first can and keeping the rest for a "rainy day" (Posted on 9/7/11)
Dont like the changes Review by foot
I used 230 grain fiocchi all the time. I ordered the canned heat assuming it was the same product just in a can and was very upset to find this was not the case. The brass casing is totally diffrent it uses small pistol primmers so for those who reload your sol. The projectile is also diffrent. Shootin old back to back with new the new is less accurate. My groups opened almost 2 inches at 20 yards. It also seems to be a little hotter ammo which honestly doesn't bother me however this tells me the powder is diffrent. So in summary the bullet is diffrent the caseing is diffrent and the powder is diffrent. If you liked the old fiocchi ammo this is not what you want. (Posted on 8/16/11)
