The 4th edition of the Fiocchi Sabatti Trophy took place in Cerreto Sannita. The long-distance shooting competition established itself as an unmissable appointment for the shooting sport aficionados.

In spite of te adverse weather conditions, more than 60 athletes arrived to the Samnium Shooting Club to take part in the competitions, including several foreign shooters. The Trophy also counted a large women participation.

Laying on a plateau at an altitude of 900 meters on the sea level, the venue managed by the Samnium Shooting Club is an excellent natural range with 8 shooting lines equipped with the latest technologies, and it offers a great visibility on the targets.

Manilo Carlo Mele won the 2019 edition of the Trophy, with a score of 100/100 + 3 mouches, finishing atop of the podium of a challenging match affected by the wind.

We extend our congratulations to the organizers and to all participating athletes who competed in the 4th edition of the Trophy - President Stefano Fiocchi said - the enthusiasm that these shooters show us, and the quality of their performances, push us to continue the development of our long-range ammunitions, that are entrusted by a growing number of experts and aficionados.
