The 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge was designed to achieve the highest levels of accuracy, flat trajectory, and extended range performance in a sensibly designed, compact package. Dubbed the big brother to the 6.5 Creedmoor, the 6.5 PRC fits in short or medium actions with a standard magnum bolt face (.532"). Its efficient case geometry features a long cartridge case neck and 30 degree cartridge case shoulder.

Utilizing moderate powder charges that result in repeatable accuracy, low recoil, and reasonable barrel life, the 6.5 PRC produces high velocities with performance well beyond 1,000 yards. It is available in loaded Hornady ammunition, 6.5 PRC 143 grain ELD-X Precision Hunter and 6.5 PRC 147 grain ELD Match.

Rifle makers currently chambering the 6.5 PRC include: Christensen Arms, Fierce Firearms, GA Precision, Gunwerks, Hill Country Rifles, Horizon Firearms, McRee Precision, Montana Rifles, PROOF Research, Savage Firearms, Sauer, Stuteville Precision, and Seekins Precision.

MSRP: $38.99 – 6.5 PRC 143 grain ELD-X Precision Hunter, $36.99 – 6.5 PRC 147 grain ELD Match
