Fiocchi’s got a penchant for making top quality ammunition that fits a very important niche in the market that’s chaeaper than competitor offerings. This is a great defensive load available for your .45 ACP that is loaded in a 200 grain jacketed hollow point that offers a significant price improvement over competitive loads. The general performance of the round is impressive with the XTP bullet (by Hornady) providing the focal point for the load’s ballistics.
Stated ballistics are as follows for this round: 925 feet per second velocity and 380 ft. lbs. of energy delivery. These are excellent numbers for what amounts to a basically standard priced load, with an impressive projectile like the XTP.
The Hornady XTP is a controlled expansion projectile that offers good penetration and a uniform performance on expansion. The grain weight retention is relatively high for a traditional bullet design and the quality control and design offer excellent consistency.
Fiocchi generally produces all of their own components in-house, but the large amount of growth of the Fiocchi brand has made it possible for the company to offer premium mashups between top tier component manufacturers and the Fiocchi baseline product.
