I saw my local walmart has Perfecta 45 ACP for $15.44 a box, a few cents less than the Tula steel cased. I know it's made in Italy by Fiocchi  and is brass cased and reloadable but that's it. Anyone shoot any ?  Hot, average, or weak ? Clean, consistent and accurate ? Seems pretty cheap for what it is. Good to go, or move on ? -Thanks

Had some 9mm. It all went bang but my accuracy was terrible that day. Can't tell if it was the ammo or me.

The 9mm seems weak/ underpowered but reliable. Haven't tried the .45, I load my own , but interested to hear a review.

I've run a few hundred rounds of the .45 through my Sig 1911 with no issues. It's currently one of my go to brands of plinking ammo.

I've shot a couple of boxes of the 45 without issue

I shoot the 9mm all the time and have the 45 from time to time.  It is in my experience loaded lighter but functions 100%.

In testing velocity it's right around the same as Federal Champion:  1,123 (3.93" barrel). IMI 115gr FMJ is about 55 fps..

I've used it, way better than PPU and the brass is ten times better than that soft Aquila an shady PPU brass crap.

Buy it, shoot it, save the brass an reload to make an even bigger stash, then profit.

I have shot a few boxes and it shoots fine.

I shoot it through my Sig P220 without any issues.  I use it for 9mm, 556, and 762.  Never had a problem with it.

Just ran a box of 45 acp through my 1911 GI. Shoots cleaner than WWB and accurate enough at steel targets at 25 yds. Will buy more for sure.

I've run three or four boxes through my Kimber with no issues. Used it to win a pin match at my club this summer.

Picked up some perfecta in .45 acp, 9mm, and .380.
Had 4 failures in .45acp shooting my Remington R1.
The Slide would lock up with a round about 1/4 from being fully chambered.
I ejected the mag and forcefully racked the slide to get the lodged round out. Happened 4 times out of 100 rounds.

The 9mm shot better had one stovepipe in my Glock 19 out of 100 rounds.
I've had the 19 for about 5 years and never had a failure of any kind. It was surprising seeing that.

The .380 ran perfect in my wife's Sig P238. No cycling issues and very accurate.

I don't mind the failures during training. I look at them as opportunities to practice "getting back in the fight".
It's not life or death ammo to me and I'll buy more for plinking and training where failures are welcome to me.

Obviously I'm not as forgiving with my carry ammo.

I've shot hundreds of rounds of both 9 and .45 Perfecta, it's been 100% besides 2 rounds of 9mm (same box) that must have had a low powder charge, didn't eject and recoil was way less than normal, very noticeable!

Just picked some of this up in 9mm 9.78 per 50ct box at walmart have yet to shoot it, but think it will be fine... Can't beat the price..
