This is Fiocchi’s no-frills 45 Auto self-defense ammunition, loaded with the expanding jacketed hollow point bullets that deal greater damage to soft tissues. The JHP’s jacket ensures quicker and more uniform expansion thanks to its notches, which allow it to split into sections that peel backward following lower-velocity impact.
This round’s bullet weighs the 45’s standard 230 grains, which alongside its 850 fps muzzle velocity puts it right on par with what the 1911 was originally designed to handle. Any 45 ACP handgun should run this ammo reliably, however, as Fiocchi loads consistent brass cases (reloadable), non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder. Fiocchi creates most of the centerfire cartridges they sell in America in Ozark, MO, although there is a possibility that the ammo you’ll receive was made in Italy.
