This Fiocchi .223 Remington ammunition represents the extreme end of accuracy for the round in a mainstream load type. Aside from the ultra-premium tier of rifle ammunition, this round offers some of the best accuracy and component quality available. This is also available at an extreme discount to ultra-premium cartridges. Fiocchi produces an incredibly good round, albeit a bit pigeonholed into a category that requires certain rifle specifications and use cases to be most efficient.
The 77 grain projectile in this cartridge is literally the most celebrated bullet design in match history: the Sierra Match King. This Hollow point boat tail match grade projectile is the number one in volume of competition awards received. It has accuracy that is inherent to the design, but it has also been proven heavily over the years. The 77 grain projectile means this cartridge is best suited to short twist rates for the .223 Remington, for instance: the 1 in 7 rate.
Yes it is a pricy round, but it still offers a significant price benefit over other rounds loaded to the same quality specification. High quality annealed neck brass and a Boxer primer makes this a good round to reload too. The powder, owned/produced by Fiocchi is clean burning and is loaded to a specification that produces an extremely tight velocity range, allowing for far better accuracy.
