Fiocchi +P+ 9mm 115 gr ammo... Question

So I was going through some older ammo cans and I found 17 boxes of this Fiocchi ammo. I believe I bought it from Dan's Ammo way back when. The boxes are standard marked with the standard 9AP marking but I know it is hotter than 1250 fps.

IIRC it is 1300 fps +. I believe I have shot it from a Glock 19 but honestly cannot remember.

At this point I have no real need for it. In today's ammo climate what do you think its worth? Anyone remember this stuff hitting the market? I seem to remember Dan's and a few other outlets selling it.

I am thinking of trading/selling it off to fund some reloading equipment... If this is in the wrong forum please feel free to move it.

I think it would vary by market, but here in Utah all 9mm is still very hard to get in the stores but it is not selling for very much in the classifieds either.

I would guess if that were for sale here it might fetch $30-35 per box but I am not really sure, could be more. Gunbroker is another story, stuff on there is fetching crazy prices.

I think am just going to keep it. With 9mm so hard to find I might end up shooting it.

The Fiocchi 9AP load is a nice hot 9mm, loaded the way the 9mm should be loaded.

Here's some chronograph data from a couple of years ago

From my G17:

Fiocchi 9mm 115 gr. FMJ (9AP)
Hi: 1353
Lo: 1259
Av: 1297.6
ES: 94
SD: 24
n: 25

From my G17L:

Fiocchi 9mm 115 gr. FMJ (9AP)

Hi: 1372
Lo: 1326
Av: 1350.4
ES: 46
SD: 11.76
n: 25

It is also very accurate from those guns.

That Fiocchi ammo is so loud some of the loudest 9mm ammo I have ever fired insanely hi-pitch.
