Editors’ Picks 2018: Hornady 6.5 mm PRC Ammunition

Hornady created the most successful new cartridge of the last few decades in 2007 with its thoughtfully designed 6.5 mm Creedmoor, and the Nebraska-based manufacturer is tweaking the .264 caliber even further with the introduction of its newest chambering—the 6.5 mm PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge). Slightly longer and significantly fatter than its older brother, the 6.5 mm PRC offers a 28 percent larger case capacity than the Creedmoor while utilizing the same projectiles and fitting within the same short actions. The result is a cartridge that offers flatter downrange trajectories and higher on-target energies than its predecessor, yet doesn’t batter the shooter’s shoulder—making it a promising addition for competition shooters and hunters alike. hornady.com
