Default Flakey ammo??

I heard rumors that fiocchi ammo is crap and they wont cycle through semi-auto shotguns, I would be using these for coyote hunting, I just don't want to be out in the field and shoot and the ammo to not cycle for a good follow up shot if I need it, these are the ones that I ordered below, any and all help is appreciated

My buddy & I use Fiocchi Golden Pheasant on our pheasant hunts in SD. Just stop in Cabelas and grab a 10 box flat as we pass through Mitchell.

I have a Benelli Montefeltro, my friend shoots a Benelli Legacy, both are 20 ga and we shoot 3 inch.

I tried Fiocchi Turkey loads, but it did not pattern well enough.

I have not used any low brass, Fiocchi field loads.

You should not have any problem cycling the ammo you purchased.

I would try to find the ammo somewhere other than CTD. CTD will ream you on shipping.

Ive shot this out of my stoeger p350, it works well. Not really anything to complain about i used it for target shooting not really hunting.

True, I prefer Midway USA if I HAVE to make an online purchase.

The sportsmans guide has free shipping weekends quite often. You always can get a coupon for $10 off on a $100 purchase. SG has competitive prices. I never have to pay sales tax. Best of all I don't have to hear some idiot tell me he can't buy ammo for MSRP.

I can't speak for their shotgun ammo, but every Centerfire Handgun round I have gotten from them is awesome.

I shoot Fiocchi Match Pistol .22, and I can assure you it is not crap.

I have become a fan of their MonoBlock expansion(92Gr.) 9MM. They also make it in 357, 40, and 45. A lot cheaper then golden Sabers.... I think I have 3 full 50rd. Boxes plus another half a box loose,.. Blew a nice big fist sized hole in my frozen Pumpkin two Saturdays ago after 100+ rds. Of 22's thrown at it. Very similar to Hornady's Critical Defense for less money. Comes in a RED box, not blue...
