Fiocchi of America is proud to announce the addition of the vaunted 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge to their rifle offering! The 6.5 Creedmoor has quickly become the gold standard for long range target shooting. With projectiles offering high sectional density and ballistic coefficients coupled with sensible case volume to bore area ratios this cartridge is world renowned for its ability to perform well above its weight class. With a 30% flatter trajectory and a 40% reduction in crosswind effect above 308/762NATO you can easily see why the 6.5 Creedmoor has taken the long range shooting world by storm.

I had the good fortune to receive a handgun shooting class from Quinn Cunningham when I was researching an article on Colorado’s FASTER program. FASTER stands for Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response, a program to enable teachers, administrators and other school employees to stop school violence quickly and administer advanced first aid techniques. Cunningham is an active duty Colorado law enforcement officer, Active Shooter instructor, a SWAT Team leader, has twenty-two years of operational instruction—seventeen in tactical positions—and is ranked Grandmaster in Production Division in the United States Practical Shooting Association.

He was a great man and a grand entrepreneur. He was the wise president of Fiocchi in the 1960’s and 1970’s, he guided the company and contributed to the production development of his country, receiving the “Golden Mercury Prize” in Italy in 1970 by the PM of the time Giuseppe Saragat.
He was one of the main responsible people involved in bringing Fiocchi Ammunition to the U.S.A and as a talented engineer a huge innovator in the ammunition industry and machinery.
His sons Carlo, Costantino and his grandchildren, Carlotta, Beatrice, Giulio and Francesca will miss him very much.
