Fiocchi, a global leader in target, defense, and hunting ammunition, has expanded two of its families of ammunition, the Field Dynamics and Hyperformance Hunt series. The Field Dynamic added two Upland Steel rounds while the Hyperformance Hunt added a .223 Remington round.
Field Dynamics Upland Steel
With more hunters opting for lead alternative loads, Fiocchi has given hunters another option for shot loads. The Upland Steel shotshells are perfect for hunters going after upland birds or small game. According to Fiocchi, the components and engineering behind the new loads deliver the same high-quality and reliable performance that hunters expect from a Fiocchi load.
The Field Dynamics Upland Steel shotshells are designed to be used in 12-gauge shotguns chambered for 2 ¾-inch and have either #4 or #6 steel shot. These rounds are available now with pricing around $18 per box of 25 shells.
Fiocchi Hyperformance Hunt in .223 Remington
The updated Hyperformance Hunt round was designed for a “lights out” performance when hunting varmints. According to Fiocchi, it has the same winning foundation as all the centerfire cartridges, like top-quality brass cases, reliable primers, and precision-manufactured bullets that deliver expected terminal performances. The feature that separates the .223 Remington Hyperformance Hunt load is the lead-free hollow point projectile.
This projectile, the Barnes Varmint Grenade bullet, is designed to fragment quickly at impact similar to a frangible copper-tin hollow point. While it fragments, it delivers the impact energy on the target resulting in a stopping power terminal performance that leaves the hides or pelts of the animal undamaged. When used on larger game, the bullet rarely exits the target leaving the pelts intact.
The .223 Remington Hyperformance Hunt round joins other calibers for bigger game like .243 Win, .260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308 Win just to name a few. Pricing information wasn’t readily available, but more details should be out soon.
Fiocchi can be visited at SHOT Show 2023 at boot 11454 to see the updated loads in person.
