I did a search and only found 1 thread.

I can get 50 round box of 55gr for $16.16 if I buy 10+ boxes.

Anyone else use it?

I have about a case of the stuff. I have shot about 100 rds of it. Its accurate and clean. Thats a good price for it in todays market. I would buy it all.

It is what I have been buying locally a little at a time. Where are you getting it at for that price?

Better than what I have paid so far on a couple hundred rounds.

Good price. Buy 1K at least.

I have had great luck with Fiocchi across the board.

45 ACP, 9mm, .308 and .223 have been a good buy. It dosent seem to be that popular, but it is good stuff.

It isn't the hottest round you can buy, but for me it's accurate and clean. The price you mention is fair, in this present day of ammo rapery.

A good friend of mine bought a bunch of it to shoot through his Rock River and he had no problems with it. I believe they used the good Hornady 55 FMJ. He gave me the brass for reloading and when i deprimed them I noticed many had off center flash holes. Not a big deal for plinkin' loads but I'm not going to count on them to deliver accurate reloads. YMMV.

When I got to the store, they were in the process of increasing the price from $17.95 to $21.45. The register already had the new prices in it, but they honored the sticker price since the ammo counter guy hadnt re-stickered it yet. Received the 10% off for 10+ box purchase, so $16.16 a box. I bought all they had, 1350 rounds for $462.50. If I had waited 1 more day, it would have cost me an extra $86.13 plus tax! No bad, .34 cents a round out the door.

Someone mentioned these weren't very hot. At 3240 fps, where does that put them?

I believe that's from a 24" test barrel. It would be significantly slower out of the typical 16 or 20" AR.

Has anyone chronographed this stuff or of a 16" carbine? If it isn't too pokey, I may lay-in some for a rainy day.

Yeah, any chrono-owners who can chime in on this?
