I have fired 1600 rounds of 55gr FMJBT through my Daniel Defense DDM4 and my Rock River 20" Varmint. It is the most accurate of all the 55gr .223 or 5.56 ammo I have used. I highly recommend it.

Is this about Fiocchi USA or G.F.L. ("Giulio Fiocchi, Lecco" Italian M193) ammo?

Either way, I have shot a couple of boxes of both, neither with issues.

I have shot 500 rounds of this , 55gr in various AR15s and a Sig 556 .

All functioned well, decent accuracy . The early stuff was pretty good brass with crimped primers , recently they are uncrimped and all the flashholes have been off center ( i voted minor problem)

I've fired 600 rds of the Fiocchi 55gr FMJ in my Bushmaster 14.5'', BCM 14.5'' and in my LMT 16''. Just picked up another 250 rds and will see if they work in my KAC SR15. I like it, its cheap and clean.

While trying to find which factory ammo my new DPMS S.A.S.S Barreled upper likes the best, I shot 20rds of 62gr. It shot the best groups out of 6 different kinds of ammo. I only bought a 50rd box but will be getting much more of this ammo soon.

Ive never used any Fiocchi ammo, but would like to see the poll results.

How can I do that without voting?

TIA

RRA 24" Bull with 1:8 twist and BCM 16' with 1:7 twist
40gr V-Max = 60 rounds
50gr V-Max = 40 rounds
55gr PSP = 40 rounds
55gr FMJ = 50 rounds
62gr FMJ = 40 rounds
69gr Match = 40 rounds
77gr Match = 40 rounds

No problems whatsoever. I think some of the Fiocchi ammo is under rated. The V-Max and Match bullets are very accurate. The Soft Points and FMJ's are average.

500 rds. variously through carbine-length Colt 6920, RRA ET and Stag/Model 1 - all 16", and RRA middy 16". All 55 gr. FMJ. No problems at all.

It's my go-to ammo, since it shoots clean, is as accurate as I need it to be, has been available through The Great Ammo Shortage and the price is good. I have about 1k rds of it salted away for SHTF, and I'll stake my life on it if need be.

My barrel seems to love Fiocchi. It's a WOA 18" 1-7 twist, I've mainly shot 55gr hp thru it but i have a box of 62gr and 77gr match that I'm going to put thru it this weekend. The 77gr match I'm going to push out to 200 yards so I'll report back to tell how it did.

This was a small group of the 55gr I shot at 50 yards with a 100 yard zero when I was out plinking with the kids, the bullseye was when I compensated for the zero. I believe the small group was 7 shots.

I just picked up 200 rounds of FIOCCHI Exacta loaded with 77grain Sierra Matchking,Made in the USA case marked GFL. It was clean and grouped tighter than anything I have fired to date out of my BCM 16" standard midlength. It outperformes Black hills 77g MHP, SSA 77g OTMs and Hornady 75g TAP pretty consistantly out of my rifle. This ammo is underated. For now on I will only purchase this ammo for match grade accuracy. I would like to see it's terminal performance though. I usually keep a couple hundred rounds of 75-77g OTMs for HD. The Fiocchi is a bit cheaper than the SSA or Hornady that I usually buy.

Shot 60 rounds of the 69gr SMK loaded stuff yesterday out of a 1:9 twist 16" chrome lined, NATO chambered Bushmaster barrel. This was with an Aimpoint R1 and a Primary Arms 3x magnifier.

After zeroing the optic, I shot this internet commando 3 shot group at 50 yards :P



I then shot a pile at 100 yards. Didn't take any pics of that. When I was down to my last six rounds, I decided to see what would happen at 200 yards. It was kind of tough, as the 4MOA dot on the R1 was bigger than the 5.5" target I was shooting at. Here is the result. The larger target was already there complete with bullet holes. I just stuck my small target to it.



All in all, I was really impressed with the accuracy. This was probably some of the most accurate factory ammo I've ever shot.

I wasn't expecting much out of Fiocci (55gr, FMJ), but it shot very well for me in my 16" 1:7 BCM midlength. Zero malfunctions, <2MOA with 20 shot groups (probably closer to 1.5" or better but that's the shooter not the ammo). Wish it was cheaper and that I had more of it.

I put 200 rounds of the 55gr PSP through my 16" Rock River. No problems at all, and it grouped well. I'd buy it again, if the price was right.
I firmly believe in the right to keep and arm bears.
