This ammo could ruin any small bird’s afternoon, but its 1,280 fps muzzle velocity and 1-1/8 ounce shot column are both the sweet spots for a target load. Fiocchi also makes this round’s #7.5 shot by chilling lead droplets in a liquid bath immediately after they are formed. The chilling process makes lead hard enough to resist deformation, which in turn promotes tighter shot patterns that are more efficient at shattering clay.
This shell’s shot weight and muzzle velocity wouldn’t have clapped you with thunderous recoil on their own. Still, Fiocchi loads a cushioned wad to take even more of the kick out of this ammo. The Italian company loads this ammo in the state of Missouri with clean-burning powder and non-corrosive primers.
