I have a Beretta 21A and was wanting to try different kinds of ammo to see how it would work. I read in one of the forums that someone used Fiocchi with great success. I bought 2 bricks. Worst ammo I have used, it would not even eject in the 21A and when I tried it in my P22 90% of the time it would not cycle and 50% of the time it would not extract. My P22 will cycle 22 shorts but only 2 at a time,( one in the chamber and one in the clip). It is also extremely dirty. This is the ammo that is in the blue box with a red stripe around it and marked Performance Shooting Dynamics Standard Velocity.

I have used this ammo extensively in revolver and non-auto rifles , being European ammo it is only going at 1100fps. not enough to cycle autos , which require about 1300fps . I had not noticed it to be dirty though .

Where in the world can you find Fiocchi .22 long rifle ammunition? Tell me, please! It's the best stuff I've ever found for my High Standards.

Standing Wolf, from the looks of it, I bet he'll sell you what he has left. :p
