The SM320 doesn't shoot bad in a couple of my rifles, but certainly not any better than Wolf Match Target or Match Extra and costs even a little more than the ME around here. I have shot the M320 or 340, don't remember which and also the SM 340... they were not as good as the SM320. I have one friend that has a Savage Anschutz and the SM320 shoots very good in it. Like any .22 ammo, ya' gotta' try it in your rifle to know.

SM340 is the best ammo for my CZ silhouette my gun shop ran out of it last year so i bought some of the SM320 and it shoots just as good as the SM340 for me and it's less expensive.

You have to try it to see if your rifle likes it.

The dealer close to here that handles Fiocchi has the same price on the SM340 and 320. I thought the only difference was the speed, 320 meter/sec vs. 340 meters/sec., the 340 of course has more energy to knock over those animals.

Buy 2 boxes of each and load test them.

The 340 may shoot better in colder weather.

I have shot the SM320 and SM340 in my SAKO, both shot fairly well with the 340 shooting considerably better, with some very impressive groups.

My Sav Mk II BTVS loves SM320 - one ragged hole for 5 rds @ 50 yards if I do my part.

My best group ever{.0159} was shot in 1999 with Fiocchi match pistol from a highly modified 10/22. Been trying to repeat that for years with Anschutz and others! A fluke, yes, but the Fiocchi shot well!
