Fiocchi .45 ACP Ammo Review
I went out to the family place this last weekend and while I was there tested a box of Fiocchi 230 grain FMJ .45acp ammo furnished by LuckyGunner.com.
This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer-primed, reloadable brass cases. It comes in a cardboard box with plastic ammo organizer holding the rounds in place.
My brother and I took three .45 acp pistols to run this ammo through to check it for reliability. A Kimber and Taurus 1911 style along with a Ruger P345 double action. The ammo performed flawlessly in all three pistols. I carry a .45 for self defense and sometimes as a backup on hog hunts so I am very concerned with reliability and feeding. The ammo was shot at seven yards and twenty yards, all free hand. Some was shot in rapid fire and some in very rapid fire. Out of 50 rounds there were no jams, hiccups or stove pipes, just as one would expect from FMJ hardball ammo. The ammo had plenty of power and more than acceptable accuracy for off hand combat style shooting. If I slowed my rate of fire the ammo just ate out a big circle in the bull. Lucky gunner carries a full line of .45 acp ammo http://www.luckygunner.com/handgun/45-acp-ammo
along with ammo for most any caliber you might need whether Long gun, Handgun. Rimfire or Shotgun.
Seven rounds at seven yards rapid fire.
Remainder of ammo fired from 20 yards rapid fire and at red dots on right side of target from 20 yards slow fire.
The next time you need some good ammo for a cheap price give http://www.luckygunner.com/ a try. I think you will be pleased, Wild Ed
