Fiocchi Ammo was established in Italy in 1872, and they make a wide range of ammo for practice, hunting, and for various military forces.
The pistol ammo we tested features a reloadable brass case, non-corrosive primer, and full metal jacket bullet with a lead core.
For this review, we shot a couple of boxes of Fiocchi 170 grain in .40 Smith & Wesson. Accuracy was good and all rounds hit close to point of aim at 15 yards from a bench rest. The Fiocchi ammo seemed to perform like any other brass-cased ammo, but then we had some malfunctions in a couple of our test guns. Both our Smith & Wesson M&P and Ruger SR40 had failures to feed. There were no other problems in any of our other test guns, so it's hard to say what exactly was going on.
As a company, Fiocchi Ammo has a longstanding reputation and a few awards under their belt. And besides the reliability issues, Fiocchi seemed to be high-quality ammo. It was not excessively dirty. The cases were high-quality brass. If you don't mind the possibility of maybe having to practice a few malfunction drills, then Fiocchi ammo in .40 Smith & Wesson is not a bad overall choice.

Another non-standard bullet weight, from Fiocchi, that is a winner!
148 grain .357 S&W Magnum, or 170 grain .40 S&W, either one is a neat idea, and they work great for me! Gun used, CZ 75B .40S&W, Glock 22, & 23, Browning HI Power, .40, S&W M&P, Beretta 96FS. Clean, mean, and fun, plus it's not 180 grain! I love the way these unique weighted Fiocchi rounds hit! This one was a bit too snappy from my Charter Arms Pitbull, but I was swinging bowling pins around, and hitting them while they were still moving with the diminutive revolver! I got blood blisters from the stock grips, but I didn't even realize it until I cleaned up to eat dinner! Not bad! The Charter Arms Pitbull revolvers are kind of fun. Having an arthritic old person with me, makes having a wheel gun chambered the same as my semi-autos, makes sense. It is something without a slide to rack, that uses the same ammo, and can they be quickly loaded from my extra box-mags!
LG & Fiocchi a Great Combo
I bought a case of this for a class I was taking that required "factory" ammo in 50rd boxes. I have shot a lot of Fiocchi in the past and was not dissapointed. We shot hard for 4 days and I did not have a lot of time for gun cleaning in between yet I had no fail to feeds and no mis fires. As always price was great from LG.
