Mainknock Down

Fiocchi has introduced its Knock Down series of big-game ammunition, which utilizes a precision-engineered monolithic bullet for decisive terminal performance on big game.

Part of Fiocchi's EnviroShield technology initiative, Knock Down ammunition centers on an all-copper hollow-point bullet. Profiled for accuracy and speed, this bullet delivers controlled expansion for penetration while ensuring the kind of energy transfer needed for a devastating punch.

Adding to that punch is Fiocchi's proprietary powder, which is designed to burn clean, hot, and consistent. Reduced fouling and faster bore cleanup are two additional advantages promised by this proprietary powder blend.

Fiocchi Knock Down is currently offered in the following calibers/bullet weights:

  • .243 Winchester, 80 grain, 3,415 fps
  • .270 Winchester, 130 grain, 3,100 fps
  • 6.5 Creedmoor, 120 grain, 2,900 fps
  • 7mm-08, 140 grain, 2,825 fps
  • 7mm Remington Magnum, 160 grain, 2,935 fps
  • .308 Winchester, 150 grain, 2,900 fps
  • .30-06 Springfield, 150 grain, 2,950 fps
  • .300 Winchester Magnum, 165 grain, 3,100 fps
