I am curious to know if anyone has used them or knows anything about them. I noticed in Cabela's catalog that these shells are inexpensive compared to the big name brands, and I am thinking about giving them a try (3.5" 12 gauge). Any input would be appreciated.

do i usethem? heck i sould be part owner in the company. they have very very good ammo and its headquarted right here in MO ozark to be exact.

now i haven't used them for turkeys i used 12 guage 3 inchers with 2.0z of shot in a number 6 for phasent. I am getting them at graf and sons in mexico. they are just a tad cheaper there but of course if your close to cableas the shipping is a killer.

funny thing is when i went to get them they thought i was getting turkey shells said they couldn't keep them around for turkey season.

i know for shooting a heavy load late in phesant season they can't be beat.

This is from their website:

Where are Fiocchi products made?

We have a manufacturing plant in Ozark, Missouri, where we load both shotshell and centerfire ammunition. We also import centerfire ammunition, reloading components, match grade rimfire ammunition and specialty/obsolete loads from our parent company in Italy. All products are loaded to either C.I.P. or SAAMI specifications.

I shot the 2 3/4" #6 loads earlier in pheasant season and I hated them. I'm not sure if it's maybe just that my gun didn't like them or what, but they didn't shoot well at all for me. Using them I went 0 for 3 on pheasant and that was enough for me to switch.
I unloaded my gun and started using federal the rest of the day and went 3 for 3 and didn't have a miss the rest of the season on a phesant.
For the price I think they're definately worth a try but for whatever reason either me or my gun didn't shoot them well.

:peepwall: Nothing to do but try them out, but I don't shoot enough turkey loads to go with anything cheaper than Winchester Supremes.

We shoot Fiocchi shells dove hunting and HAVE no problems killing birds.

We take Fiocchi to South Dakota, pheasant hunting and have always had good luck. I like em' but have never tried their turkey load. I'm with Hoytshooter and Parker, Winchester supremes have always done me right.

I've shot Fiocchi ammo for years duck hunting and it has always performed well. I however recommend Winchester # 5 Supremes like the other fellas did.

Thanks for the input. I think I am going to give the Fiocchi's a try. I used that nifty product comparison feature on Cabela's website to compare them with Winchester Supreme High Velocity and Double-X magnums. They compared very favorably, with a heavier shot charge than either Winchester flavor and velocity between the two Winchesters, as you can see in this link (if I posted it correctly):

I have been thru their plant and was very much impressed with them--I also bought several thousand rounds of 9mm's from them back several years ago------very few misfires and when there was one it was usually the firearm-----

I have never used any for turkey hunting but for everything else---never had any problems--:cheers:

I got an invite back when I was buying several thousand rounds a year-----Pretty neat place and the equipment is something to watch for sure.

I did ask if I could bring a fishing rig out and just play in that front pond for an hour----I got a polite "NO":stickfight:
