This is why i reload my own ammo, only i am to blame. And people think that factory ammo is always 100% safe.

Scary! I was just about to order some Fiocchi 45 because the price is right. But I thought Fiocchi was producing a lot of their ammunition in the US? I know the Magtech is produced in Brazil.

Damn... I was about to order some Fiocchi 147gr 9mm. I'll wait until this 115gr boo boo blows over.

I just ordered 158gr 9mm Fiocchi. Good thing I didn't get the 115gr one, I was considering it (it was cheap, but I prefer to shoot the same kinds of ammo, and I mostly shoot WWB 115gr and AE 115gr).

nick,

What are you going to use the 158gr in?

I considered ordering a batch for a pistol caliber carbine, but I'm curious if I can also shoot it through a pistol.

Nothing useful. Normally this is something you'd use with a sound suppressor, since they're subsonic, and the greater bullet weight somewhat compensates for the lost velocity. However, there's a fat chance I'd be able to get a sound suppressor in CA anytime soon, so I just bought a few boxes out of curiosity, and to see if maybe some of my guns might like it.

It should be quieter than other ammo, too, and if the difference is noticeable, I'll just need to track down some subsonic HPs for HD. Would be nice to keep as much hearing left as I can in case I ever have to use it, right?

Also, I wonder if they go supersonic when shot out of a carbine? Well, I'll find out soon enough

Sounds good!

I'd appreciate if you posted a review of your 158gr experience if I don't get a batch myself sooner.

Cheers!

Oh wow, I was freaking out when I saw this because I bought a fair amount of 115 grain, 9mm Fiocchi in the past year. Then I found out that this recall notice was posted in 2006! Gonna check my lot numbers when I get back but I'm guessing the ammo I bought is probably going to end up okay...

Actually the post date was "11-23-2010 11:08 AM". It's on the top left. The 2006 date you saw was the poster's join date for CalGuns.

Hopefully you don't have any of the bad stuff, but they'll take care of you if you do. If you call them, they might send you a UPS label for shipping them back.

No, I mean the recall is from 2006. Do a search on it and the same recall notice you'll find in posts from 5 years ago!

Fiocchi imports some ammo from Italy and they produce some of it in the US. Actually the 115 Gr. FMJ 9mm rounds come from both places but it will clearly say on the box if it is from Italy or the US.

I got some of these Italian ones after the recall and no problems.
