First Impressions: Fiocchi “Magnum” 18g / #6 (Italian, 2.7mm)

The contents of the Fiocchi “Magnum” 18g / #6 (Italian, 2.7mm) cartridge.

The Fiocchi cartridges contain an average of 138 pellets. These are equivalent in diameter to an English size #5½. They contain a full-length plastic wad with long skirt and petaled cup which insulates almost all of the shot from the walls of the cartridge – and, presumably, the barrel. They are crimped with a 6-point star closure. The case is a standard 3″ parallel tube plastic case, supplied in green with Fiocchi branding printed in gold.
