Fiocchi ammo

The local big box sporting good store near me, has Fiocchi ammo for a great price. Can anyone give good or bad about this ammo? Know its Italian and now made in Missouri. But what I've shot so far seems to be nice, consistence and clean.

I have used it several times and never had a problem. From what I remember it was clean ammo. I would buy it again at the right price.

I use it often both "red box" and "blue box". I normally get RN FMJ. The prices online are better than reloads at my range!!! It runs fine and as has been mentioned is relatively clean. Fiocchi's "EXTREMA" comes loaded with an XTP bullet and has been failure free in all my pistols.
I had one batch last year that I had a few problems in my Ruger LC9s with? The same batch of "blue box" worked fine in other 9mm pistols I have? I'm presuming it was a hair out of spec.

I shot two boxes out of my 38 Super. It seems to be good ammo albeit not +P. My Kimber did fine with it.

Shot 9 and 45 with no issues; would buy again if the price is right. Used for break-in, mostly; Kimber specifies factory ammo.

It’s one of my favorite ammo brands. Have shot 45ACP, 9mm, and 380ACP. It’s really nice brass for my reloads. I’ve saved it for 20 years, and just started reloading in January. Stored in a wet, basement utility and laundry room it cleaned up beautifully.
