fiocchi target ammo

I picked up some fiocchi 115 gr. 9mm target ammo. Instead of the copper jacket it has a brass jacket. Has anybody shot these. I haven't got a chance to try them yet. I wonder about barrel wear. Is the brass as soft as the copper jacketed ?

Either is far softer than the steel barrel.

It should be just fine. At least it is through my M&P's.

It cycled fine for me when I used it previously. An indoor range that I sometimes use does not allow reloads to be used and this is what they sell.

My experience with the Fiocchi line of ammo has been excellent. No hesitation to use it.
