Actually, This announcement brings up a "back door" question.

Is Fiocchi now free to develop their product line of 5.7 ammo,

According to the announcement, ATK will now be the F.N source of SS-197. As Fiocchi was the previous source, it would seem logical that they have not "forgotten" how to manufacture the cartridge.

This is the direction I am personally looking to for innovation.

Just one mans opinion.

It is my understanding that FN owns WInchester the gun company - but someone else owns the "Winchester" name for ammo manufacturing.
They're separate companies, but I think they're both Olin owned. At least I know that Olin owns the Winchester trademark. I'm almost positive that they own the ammunition facilities, and the barrel of my 1300 has an Olin stamp on it.

**Correction, the stamp isn't on the barrel. It's on the receiver, and it just mentions the trademark being owned by Olin.
