The ammo company Fiocchi goes back to the 1870s and has been in the same family ever since. Today they make a wide variety of ammo products for civilians, law enforcement, and military forces in several different countries. Fiocchi's kind of a unique company because they control almost every aspect of their manufacturing process.
They make a lot of their own loading machines and almost all their components are produced in-house. They even have their own lead recycling side business, which is where they get most of the materials for their projectiles.
Fiocchi makes a lot of different revolver loads. And today we're going to look at one of their soft-tipped 357 Magnum rounds. Each cartridge features a reloadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer. The bullet is a 125 grain lead core semi-jacketed soft-point. So half the bullet is encased in copper, but the top half is exposed lead with a flat tip. Because of this flat tip, the ammo should work great in most lever action rifles with a tubular magazine.
Fiocchi considers this load a self-defense round. But it could also probably work for hunting certain types of medium-sized game. Like any Magnum load, recoil was stiff, but still pretty manageable. It even braved a few shots out of our little polymer-framed Ruger snub-nose. It wasn't the worst recoil I've experienced. But after three rounds, I was done.
Ignition, reliability, and extraction were great in all six of our test revolvers. And recoil was much easier to handle in the full-size guns. We tested accuracy from the bench at 15 yards using a Ruger GP100. Our 10-shot group looked pretty good. And rounds were hitting just a little below our point-of-aim.
This Fiocchi load is really a good all-around Magnum cartridge. It's inexpensive enough for some high power planking, but also makes a good self-defense load and may be good for hunting as well.
