Currently this includes two 5,56mm/.223 Remington loads with 55 and 62 grain FMJ BT bullets; a 7,62mm/.308 Winchester load with a 150-grain FMJ BT ball; and a .300 AAC “Blackout” load, likewise using 150g FMJ BT bullets.

As of today, the Fiocchi Scirocco line includes a .308 Winchester, 150g entry and a 6.5 Creedmoor load with 123g SST Polymer Tip boat-tail balls.
Last, but not least, Fiocchi of America’s line of self-defense rifle ammunition, conceived for civilian and law enforcement applications alike, now includes a variant dubbed the “5.56 NATO”, sold in tan boxes, but actually loaded on M193 specs with 55 grains FMJ BT bullets.
