Building on its years of producing NATO-certified cartridges and components, such as heavy metal-free primers, Fiocchi brings its innovative, duty-proven military ammunition manufacturing expertise to bear on a new line of specialized ammo for law enforcement professionals and personal defense applications.
Blue Guardian FR
Developed for high-volume training, Fiocchi Blue Guardian FR features lead-free and frangible ballistically matched bullets in .380, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .223 45 gr., .223 55 gr., and .300 BLK. Engineered to disintegrate on impact with materials harder than themselves – i.e. AR500 steel, Blue Guardian FR is ideal for handgun and CQB training. Lead-free primers offer additional safety for use in closed environments.
Blue Guardian HP
Intended for duty use and personal/home protection where ricochet is a concern in hard structure environments, Blue Guardian HP delivers the ideal combination of terminal performance and collateral safety. Incorporating an environmentally safe lead-free primer, Blue Guardian HP is based on a lead-free hollow point reduced ricochet bullet. The hollow point design induces critical fragmentation upon penetration of soft tissue yet begins to dump energy and disintegrate with impact on hard surfaces such as steel, concrete, tile, etc. Available for .380, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.
Blue Guardian SC
For optimal penetration, weight retention, and terminal performance in soft tissue, solid copper bullets have proven themselves as premiere defensive projectiles. The Blue Guardian SC blends a solid copper bullet to ensure maximum impact energy and penetration with a hollow point profile to optimize wound channeling. Ignited by Fiocchi's proven lead-free primers, Blue Guardian SC ammunition is offered in .380, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .223, .300 BLK supersonic, .300 BLK subsonic, and 12-gauge slug.
