    Ok this struck my curiosity so I'm posting it up to see if anyone knows a reason or has an opinion on this.

    My dad's buddy gave him a box of Fiocchi 22 mag and I just happened to catch a little sticker on the box that says "This ammo is not for use in North American Arms firearms". Would have probably just skimmed it and let it be but that's exactly what he would have been using this in, one of those North American Arms little pocket revolvers. I tried calling both Fiocchi but their customer service dept is closed til January 7th and North American Arms but theirs is closed for the weekend. I emailed them asking for some clarification but don't expect to hear back any time soon so figured what the heck I'll post it here. I'm not super familiar with Fiocchi ammo aside from rumors of a bad track record, so any answers or guesses?

    This is the ammo in question and you can see the warning label

    I don't know the "reason" but my "opinion" is that I would go along with their warning and not use that ammo in any NAA firearm

    As a brand, I would put Fiocci ahead of a lot of others. I cannot speak for the .22 ammo above, but the 9mm is better than WWB or AE IMHO.
