anyone know where to get the Fiocchi 7/8oz shell I love that shell I have shot around 20 flats and would like to buy more.
it may be time to find another load that is easier to find ?


Just Target Guns in Libertyville, IL (northern suburb of Chicago) had 7/8 oz Fiocchi the last time I was in there. They might be willing to ship.

I contact the Fiocchi sales manager the other day and was told they were selling all of the targets they make. I also asked him about their distributors. I even mentioned that I might be interested in a distributorship in my part of Texas. His comment was, we don't need another distributor because we are selling all we can make. It looks to me, they might need to increase their production if they are selling so much. Maybe they can't buy enough components. They should tell their customers why their ammo is hard to find!

Just listened to the Shotgun Sports USA Podcast on Monday with Bryan Bornes (Fiocchi Ammo Sales Rep) and this very topic was discussed in great detail. Increasing their production won't do any good. One of the main issues all ammo manufacturers are having right now is the lack of ability to secure raw components to assemble the finished products.
