I was wondering which 12 Ga. door breaching round is considered better the Federal or the Fiocchi round or are they equal?

I've been pleasantly surprised by the Fiocchi rounds so far, the ALS ones are nice too

This may help in the determination.

Federal - Slug Weight: 1-3/8 oz. / 602gr, 1100fps.
Fiocchi - Slug Weight: 1oz., 1280 fps.

Would the added slug weight make a difference here vs the fps?

It doesn't matter because both are out of stock everywhere, and all but impossible to obtain.

Depends on the door and the lock you are trying to blow to smithereens.

WTF does a Civi care about OFFENSIVE door-breaching ?!?!

Only reason I've ever (2x) purchased frangible rounds is indoor training that demanded it. And even most shoot houses don't.

For the same reason that some people in Wisconsin just have to get their AR custom painted in desert camo, even though the nearest desert is over a thousand miles away.

Because that is what the AUTHORITIES use.
