    Fiocchi Adds New 9mm Cartridge to Ammunition Line

    Fiocchi Adds 9mm Subsonic Cartridge to Shooting Dynamics Line
    Fiocchi Ammunition


    Fiocchi Ammunition's Shooting Dynamics line, one of the most popular in the ammunition industry, is sure to become of even more interest to consumers with the new addition of Fiocchi's 9mm Luger 158-grain full metal jacketed subsonic load.

    Fiocchi's Shooting Dynamics line encompasses a wide range of pistol and revolver caliber offerings encompassing lead round nose, full metal jacket, jacketed hollow point, full metal jacketed hollow point, and jacketed soft point bullets. This incredible variety of product offerings has made this line a favorite of shooters for more than twenty-five-years. Fiocchi, never resting on its laurels, continues to develop and improve upon its Shooting Dynamics handgun ammunition products with the goal of achieving the ideal synergy between shooter, firearm and ammunition. And the addition of the new Fiocchi 9mm Luger 158-grain, full metal jacketed subsonic round is certainly a welcome addition and achieves that goal.

    Developed for the high volume shooter, Fiocchi's popularly-priced new 9mm Luger subsonic round, just like all of the ammunition products in the Shooting Dynamics line, takes no back seat when it comes to performance.

    Fiocchi's 9mm Luger subsonic round leaves the muzzle of a 5-inch barrel at 940 fps, well under the sound barrier, while generating a powerful 309 ft./lbs. of energy. At 50 yards, the bullet loses little momentum while generating 893 fps velocity and 279 ft./lbs. of energy. At 100 yards, this quiet performer still produces 852 fps velocity and 254 ft./lbs. of decisive energy.

    For more information on Fiocchi's new 9mm Luger 158-grain, full metal jacketed subsonic ammunition or Fiocchi's full line of rifle, pistol, rimfire, shot shell and unique rounds contact: Fiocchi Ammunition, 1662 Nevada Way, Boulder City, Nevada, 89005 - 702-293-6174 - or visit Fiocchi Ammunition USA.

    Thanks birdman but i'll never buy them for 2 reasons-1st being i have no use for 9mm handguns (or 9mm rifles for that matter),and 2nd being i've been a reloader since i was 12. When reloading,one can load at any velocity level wanted (within reason),and have almost endless choice of componets,all for pennies on the dollar (bulk componets) compared to buying ammo.

    Hey stalkingbear,

    Why do you feel this way about the 9mm? What caliber do you prefer over a 9mm?

    I recently purchased a .9mm Beretta and I'm pretty happy with it. I'm guessing you want more stopping power than a 9 can provide?

    I'm not an "elitest" or anything,just that I'm an actual survivor (NOT winner) of having had to use deadly force. I'm of the opinion that 9mm, while deadly, isn't the optimum defense caliber. When a .45 bullet goes in, it's already larger than a 9mm bullet after it expands. When the .45 expands, it transfers it's energy VIOLENTLY in the target. I've personally seen what a .45acp 230 gr +P will do to an attacker with center of mass shot, and will now settle for nothing less. I fully realize that an well placed shot from anything is better than a miss or offcenter shot from a hand cannon. I practice regularly and feel confident that I have mastered the recoil of an 1911 in .45acp. When it comes to defending myself & family, I'm going to blow the biggest hole in them that I can, without overpenetrating. When that time comes, microseconds can mean the difference between life & death, and sometimes the smaller calibers fail to stop with the 1st shot. You don't shoot to kill-you shoot to stop any capability of any further acts of aggression, unfortunately that usually means killing the aggressor. The faster you stop the aggressor, the better. I've found out that it's better in court later to shoot an aggressor the least amount of times you can, while stopping them. Emptying the whole magazine in them is frowned on later while trying to prove deadly force was 110% justified. That's why MY choice will always be the proven .45acp. Hope that clears up any misunderstandings and I didn't mean to offend anyone that likes 9mms.

    Also subsonic ammo is actually downloaded in 9mm to the lower level of velocity. That decreases the amount of energy which in my eyes is desperately needed in the 9mm for "stopping power".

    You didn't offend me at all. I was just curious.

    I considered getting a .45 but I bought this pistol for home protection and I wanted it to be something my wife could also handle, but also something that was easy for me to conceal...if I ever get off my lazy butt and get my conceal and carry. It's the first pistol I've owned and price was also a factor. I got a very good deal on it from my friend at Third Generation Shooting Supply and that really made the biggest difference in my choice.

    I'm going to be buying another one very soon so I will take your advice into consideration. Thanks.

    In my experience, it's best to have seperate guns for you & your wife. Both of us have ccw permits and I've striven to help my wife master her carry handgun. She has a S&W model 442 that I've installed a Wolff spring kit in that effectively reduces the DAO trigger pull by a good 40%. My wife lacks the hand strength to rack the slide of an semiauto. Sure she can shoot a semi but she cannot operate the slide to load, unload, or clear a malfunction so she's better with a revolver. Also revolvers are MUCH simpler to teach someone with limited experience. Your 9mm with +P Gold Dot or Winchester Ranger SXT ammo SHOULD be the best defense ammo on the market, and plenty for home defense. I've been an NRA and state certified shooting/ccw/hunter education instructor for about 16 years now. The important thing is regardless of caliber, your defense handgun should fit YOU, and you should be able to shoot it best if it fis you. Don't get too hung up on calibers as long as you can place every shot where you want it to go, and use the best ammo you can.
