Newest Addition to Fiocchi's Top-Notch Extrema Line Utilizes High-Performance XTP Bullet.
Fiocchi chose the XTP bullet for its Extrema .32 Auto cartridge for its controlled expansion, terminal penetration and superb accuracy.
Fiocchi Ammunition's .32 Auto XTP 60-grain hollow point cartridge has become the choice of those carrying self-defense handguns chambered for the .32 Auto round — and with good reason! Part of the high-quality Fiocchi Extrema line, Fiocchi Ammunition has spared no effort in choosing only the finest quality components for its ammunition.
Loaded with the highly acclaimed XTP bullet, Fiocchi chose this bullet for its Extrema .32 Auto cartridge due to this bullet's three main benefits — controlled expansion, terminal penetration and superb accuracy. XTP bullets are famous for their ability to expand reliably across a wide range of velocities and still retain their weight. Special features in the nose facilitate and control expansion upon impact. This unique bullet's specially engineered cannelure ensures the jacket and bullet core remain locked solid during expansion to retain bullet weight. Further, tests have shown that XTP bullets consistently deliver deep, terminal penetration. Finally, the XTP is widely recognized as one of the most accurate pistol bullets ever made.
A look at the ballistics of this cartridge bears this out. When fired from a 4-inch barrel, Fiocchi's Extreme .32 Auto XTP 60-grain hollow point races out of the muzzle at 1,000 fps while producing 133 ft./lbs. of energy. At 50 yards, little ground is lost as the little .32 caliber bullet is still zipping along at 926 fps and generating 114 ft./lbs. of energy. Though well beyond self-defense range, at 100 yards velocity is still an impressive 867 fps while its energy is rated at 100 ft./lbs.
