When was the last time you seen some of these? A guy I knew years ago came by the gun club today and sold me 35 boxes of these. From what I remember they only imported them for a short time in in the mid 80's.
You are correct about Frenchie selling these. In fact he pushed them as hard as the gun.I have a single shell that I carry in my case that is green (Perazzi) on the side as shown above. I was under the impression they were produced by Fiocchi. I was thinking that Frenchie Frigon was selling these in my area in the late 70's to early 8o's.
