    Who has any experience with these rounds? I dont see much on the net. How accurate are they? How fast? How reliable are they?

    Thanks

    No experience with that particular ammo, but impressive velocities don't translate to impressive performance. You don't get something for nothing. A lighter bullet at higher velocity has the same energy as a heavier bullet at slower velocity. Naming the ammo after a venomous snake is designed to dazzle the uninformed.

    In what caliber? Is this the frangible FMJ that Fiocchi sells under a few different names in different parts of the world?

    The 100gr is the 9mm.
    I have no idea if it is frangible

    Offered in .45 and 9mm, perhaps a few other calibers.
