    Default Fiocchi Ammunition

    Just looking to see if anyone had any input on fiocchi ammunition in the upland load and their steel loads....

    Love Fiocchi as my upland load 6 shot. Only thing I shoot at pheasants and quail. Steel loads I shoot Kent.

    I like the 3 inch 20ga loads but prefer Federal PF Forever # 5's in 12 ga. for pheasants. Steel, Federal works well for me in a 3 inch 12 ga.

    I shoot them on upland stuff. Seems to pattern better than the promo ammo.

    Love their Golden Pheasant. I like their steel also, but have not shot that much of it. I normally shoot Kent Fasteel.

    We used the Fiocchi for ducks for years. Good stuff... Though Federal (in the red box) is comparable. Get whichever is a better deal per box. You probably won't notice much difference between the two...

    I have used the game loads, target loads, golden pheasant, and some of the steel. My experiance has been that they are good shells at a decent price.
