Fiocchi rifle ammo

Found a pretty good deal on "thurty-thurty" ammo from this maker. Anyone have experience with it? 6.5x55, .308 Win, 30-06 and such also welcome.

Quality of brass after firing is a consideration for reloads as well.

No issues for 308 here. I rate it about like PMC or Privi. With a lever action 30/30 you should get a few loads out of it.

Excellent in all regards except accuracy. It is excellent training ammo. Don't expect to cut the 10 ring out with it.

Thank you Gentlemen.

I'll give them that was asking me the go ahead. I shoot mostly reloads and wasn't familiar with this brand.

Their rifle ammo is fine, but their pistol brass is hit-or-miss for reloading. Primer pocket sizes are all over the place.

This is my experience, also.
