Anyone tried these yet? I have a box on the way, and will try this along with two others in my new Savage model 10 predator rifle. I love the price, but we will see how they shoot.Fiocchi Extrema Ammunition 223 Remington 50 Grain Hornady V-Max Box of 20I'll be sure to give a full report.

Okay, first day out, with the following ammo:Nosler Match Grade 55 gr. Balistic Tips $29.99Federal Prem. V shock 40 gr. Balistic tips $24.99Fiocchi Extrema 50 gr. V max $11.29(all prices Midway.com)I did not have a bench vice, only a bipod and a couple sandbags. I utilized a 4-14 VX-1 Luep. on 12 of course. There was a noticable left to right wind, gusty.All three shot in the 1-1.2" range. I saw the best groups from the fiocchi and the nosler, both performed about the same. Given the conditions, and the lack of a bench vice, I intend to try again when I can find a vice to borrow, beg, or rent.My decision: Although I will try these again next to each other in the right conditions, witht he 10 nosler i have remaining, I chose to get 10 boxes of the Fiocchi on their way. They are already out of stock, so mine are on back order with Midway :) but at less than half the price of either of the others, I decided that it was more than adequate. I'll get some pics of resulting groups next trip.

WOW, are those prices for 20 rnd boxes? If so, man I'm glad I reload!! I shoot the 50 gr. vmax in my 223 and 22-250 with great results. Sounds like you should order 10 more boxes!!

I'm having really good groups (1" with no vice) using 50gr. Black Hills V-Max out of my Model 10. just another option. And they are about $30 (I think - I haven't bought a box in awhile as I am rarely shooting that gun these days) or so for 50...

I know this is a way old thread. but my rifle put 4 55 grain soft points from black hills (blue Box) on top of each other. My rifle also put 14 40 grain vmax from Fiocchi in one ragged hole.Both Fiocchi and Black hills make fine ammo. For what its worth my barrel twist is 12
