Fiocchi Duck and Goose load.

Postby Stubby_319 » Mon Nov 04, 2013 6:42 pm

I normally shoot Remington Hypersonics, but i noticed that Fiocchi made duck and goose loads. they were 3" 1 1/5oz 2 shot and they were only 11.99 a box, i was wondering if anyone had any experience with this shell before, if so please enlighten me on how they shoot. Thanks!
If you are not sure, don't shoot. Stay safe my friends.

I just bought some. Couldn't pass up trying out such an inexpensive shell. I sure hope they work well bc that's 1/2 the price of some other loads I shoot!

Thumbs up!! I usually shoot the 1's Shoot just as good as anything else in my opinion. Only issue I've had is they shoot a little on the dirty side. I clean my gun mossberg 935 after every 3-4 boxes or so. Can't beat the price. I patterned them against blindside, Xperts, and even heavy metal. And for me the Fiocchi's patterned the best :) lucky me!

I bought a box of 6's for use on wood ducks at point blank range. Worked great!

I've shot a lot of the 123ST-4 and 123ST-1's. The 3" 1-1/8 load. Low price, great performance.

I'm not a fan of the Fiocchis... I bought a couple cases for snow goose season and they they performed well but they are a dirty shell. You'll need to obsessively clean your gun if you shoot them a lot. I shoot an SBE2 and never had an issue until shooting those shells.

I shot a case and a half last year without cleaning once and had zero problems...

I bought a box of 3s and shot them out of my a400 extreme with a long range patternmaster. They did well. No issues with cycling and ducks fell dead. One was a teal at a solid 50 yards

I've been shooting the #3's all this season, they have performed great and you can't beat $12 a box. I'd say that they're very comparable to Fasteel, just a touch cheaper. Only downside is that they aren't waterproof at all so you have to keep them dry.
