Perfecta ammo

Our Wall Mart has started carrying Perfecta ammo made in Italy, was wondering if anyone has tried this ammo and if so what is your opinion of it.

    I bought a box of 9mm but haven't fired any, yet.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    I have used it in .45 ACP, 9mm, and .380 without any issues. Seems pretty good for the price, and surprising since I'm usually not very impressed with Italian products.

    It works but it is dirty.

    I have 2 boxes of 9MM I haven't tried yet. Clerk at Wal-Mart said it was "dirty".

    I've shot SP rifle ammo in 223, 243 and 308. The 308 150gr SP hunting ammo shot very well in my Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle. Adequate in the others (1.5"@100).

    It's bargain branded Fiocci. Their "mil spec" 5.56 shoots like garbage, so.....it shoots like mil spec 5.56. Ha.

    For reloading the brass is "meh". European 4.4mm primer pockets, so buy S&B 4.4mm LR primers for best fit. American LR primers would have mixed fitment.

    I've used the .45acp with no issues. Didn't run as dirty as Magtech.

    I'm another who's bought 2 boxes of 9mm, haven't shot it yet. I haven't heard anything bad about it though...

    I've shot several boxes through my 1911 and it seems to work fine.
