    The one ounce 1200 fps load in #8 makes smokeballs from the 16 yard line. Your impression of how well or how poorly the Fiocchi loads work will depend on how well you shoot your shotgun. They are good shells for me.

    I bought a flat of 1-1/16th oz loads. (I know, kind of a weird weight) They shot great. I also bought a flat of 1oz low recoil for the grandkids. I was really pleased with them also.
    I didn't try reloading them, but will buy Fiocchi again

    I have also been pleased with their pistol ammo and pistol primers. I am told they have a plant in the USA that makes a lot of what they sell here.

    I got 10 flats of the 1 Oz x 1150 fps 'Shooting Dynamics' load this spring. The price was right and they shot really well for singles. I will buy them again if I get the opportunity.

    Have shot Fiocchi pistol, rimfire and centerfire rifle, and shotgun ammunition. Very good stuff, no disappointments.

    TRW369, do you have to use Fiocchi primers ONLY for those?

    John 53, I think Rio, Noble, and Cheddite should work well. All, including US Fiocchi are .001 larger than US brands.

    Barfin- No. Outside of domestically manufactured ammunition (Win Rem Fed), almost everybody else in the world uses steel "brass" for their shotshells.

    Sure, you can argue that Rio and Fiocchi (and possibly some others) are "domestically manufactured". A closer version of the truth is they are "domestically assembled" using foreign components.

    For what it is worth,shot approx 20,000 of the lite 8's approx. 10 years ago. Never had a bad shell or any issues with quality. Had a lot of 100's & a few200's with them. On the down side, my Mec didn't like them to we'll due to steel base. Also, in my opinion , they could have competed for market share with Rem , Fed & Win if their management had any marketing sense. The people I encountered @ Fiocchi were not interested in selling shot gun shells or increasing their brand loyality .......Gary Ehasalu
