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.
Fiocchi has added four offerings in 6.5 Creedmoor to our extensive rifle lineup in 2019. For the long range competition shooters, or those looking to smack steal at incredible distances with their friends, Fiocchi loads the 140 grain Sierra Match King™ Hollow Point Boat Tail bullet. This round’s sole focus is to cut through the air and deliver superior accuracy on demand for the shooter. Boasting a phenomenal ballistic coefficient of .535 this load flies flat and true. You do your part, and the ammunition will deliver consistent results.
For those who want to harvest fresh, organic, healthy food for their family, we have added three hunting loads to the 6.5 Creedmoor lineup. The first is a 129 grain interlock boat tail cartridge that will highlight our Field Dynamics line. This load will give the budget conscious hunter a high quality option to both practice and harvest food with. The compliment to that loading will be our 129 grain SST Polymer Tip Boat Tail loading. Coming from our legendary Extrema line, this load delivers peak terminal performance for those hunters who are a bit more discerning. The top of the line offering is our 130 grain Scirocco II™ Boat Tail Spitzer option. This projectile stands head and shoulders above the competition. Boasting a ballistic coefficient of .571, surpassing the majority of “match” rounds, this projectile provides the flattest trajectory in the category. When you combine that with the unique bonded design which allows positive expansion over a wide range of velocities you see why this projectile remains so effective at range.
With the addition of these four 6.5 Creedmoor products, Fiocchi of America has the most complete rifle offering in the company’s rich history. With the goal of providing more ammunition to the American shooter, the Fiocchi family was the first European ammunition manufacturer to open a production facility in the United States. By capitalizing on the more than 140 years of experience producing ammunition we have been able to master the performance to price ratio. This allows us to give you, the American shooter, more accuracy, reliability, and consistency for your money. These qualities have never been more evident in any other product offering than they are in the new Fiocchi 6.5 Creedmoor!
