Fiocchi HV ammo



Log in to see fewer ads
Been shooting the Fiocchi 38 grain copper coated HV HP ammo. The lot I have is the best HV ammo I have ever shot. I don't have a Chrono but I have never heard a single weak sounding round in this ammo. It functions 100% so far in both my Taurus TX.22 and my 15-22. It is amazingly accurate in my Savage MK 2. Of course it's not benchrest competition quality but I prefer it over any HV ammo including CCI mini mags.

Does it say where it's manufactured on the box? I wouldn't be surprised if it was rebranded Minimags.

I just came in from shooting some 50yd groups with fiocchi hvhp through my Sav BTVSS LH and I am getting 5/8" groups
I was also getting sub 1/2" with SK standard plus. For the money I will take the fiocchi when the margin that small. In the end I only need minute of squirrel head accuracy . The box I have says "Loaded in Mexico for fiocchi of America inc.

Glad to read the good reports. I have been quite happy with Fiocchi ammo in other calibers as well.

FiocchiUSA has both CCI and Aguila manufacture rimfire cartridges.
Fiocchi does not manufacture any rimfire ammo here in the US, only centerfire.
Check the manufacturer date codes on those 22lr and 22wmr FiocchiUSA boxes, it'll be relabeled CCI or Aguila.
Clear plastic tray is CCI, black plastic tray is Aguila.

CCI does make 38 grain hi-v 22lr.

Fiocchi Italia is the high end 22lr product.
Boxes and trays totally different from the US products.
The 320 and 300 are decent.
Exacta Winter was good out to 200 yards.

Here in New Zealand I've seen Fiocchi "Sub-sonic" ammo that is clearly marked as being manufactured by Eley . . . .

That may be so. However Mini-Mags only come in 36G & 40G so they are not rebranded M.M.

I see new packaging Gator.

Myth....Can you find the date code on the box?
Usually pressed into the bottom or end flap.
Hold the box to a light source so you can find the indentations.
I'd like to know where your cartridges came from.

Picture of your boxes and the tray inside also if possible.
It'd be great if Fiocchi has built a new rimfire assembly line here in the US.
Haven't found any reports about new rimfire facilities.
Last I read they were outsourcing their US rimfire lines.

Would those be made in U.K.?

Isn't it interesting that CCI produces Fiocchi here in the states and Eley produces Fiocchi there in N.Z.

There used to be a manufacture of 22's in N.Z. the (Stanley Ammunition Co) (most recent name) which I believe is no longer producing? The Stanley Ammunition Co when it was known by another earlier name produced ICI ammunition which is one of the companies who owned todays Eley. Winchester Australia also sounds to have quit producing, ICI,IMI,Eley are all said to have had Winny's Aussy plant produce their ammo.
