Fiocchi has expanded the company’s line of Hyperformance centerfire cartridges with a new series developed specifically for handgun hunting and wilderness defense. The all-new Hyperformance Hunt Handgun ammunition begins with the same components that form the foundation of all Hyperformance hunting and defense cartridges. These include precision-formed brass cases, reliable and clean-burning primers, and carefully selected and measured powder charges.

Since handgun hunting and wilderness defense demands no-fail terminal performance where the first shot must count, Fiocchi pairs its expertly blended components with the proven Barnes XPB bullet. This hard-hitting projectile is a monolithic copper hollow point that is noted for its expansion characteristics, weight retention, and deep penetration—exactly the kind of performance that is needed to efficiently drop big game and to bring dangerous wildlife encounters to a decisive end. While many sorts of bullets can claim those sorts of features, copper monolithics have long been prized by dangerous game hunters the world over, for the reliably consistent expansion and penetration of the uniform projectiles. Whether targeting elusive muleys or stopping a grizzly in its tracks, Fiocchi Hyperformance Hunt packs the sort of terminal performance necessary for a successful shot.

Fiocchi has launched this Hyperformance Hunt Handgun series in the four most popular hunting handgun calibers today. For those packing revolvers, classic rounds like 140-grain .357 Magnum, 225-grain .44 Magnum or 200-grain .45 Long Colt should greatly appeal. For semi-automatic fans, however, the company has also released a 155-grain 10mm Auto, allowing for expanded capacity and hard-hitting performance, all in one small, dependable package.

Available Calibers

  • .357 Magnum (140-grain, 1150 fps)
  • 10mm Auto (155-grain, 1165 fps)
  • .44 Magnum (225-grain, 1240 fps)
  • .45 Long Colt (200-grain, 1010 fps)

Hyperformance Hunt Handgun ammo is available in individual 25-round boxes, or eight boxes per case.
