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!

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.
