posted on March 21, 2018

The 6.5 mm PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) from Hornady provides a ballistic upgrade over the company’s popular 6.5 mm Creedmoor chambering. This new cartridge is sized to fit in short or medium actions with a standard magnum bolt face (0.532"), and features a long cartridge case neck and the same 30-degree shoulder as used by the 6.5 mm Creedmoor. Tipped ELD Match bullets with an astonishing 0.351 (G7) ballistic coefficient are loaded into uniform and consistent cases with carefully matched powder to provide for a match-grade ammunition with a velocity of 2910 f.p.s. Pairing velocity with aerodynamic bullets should make this new cartridge a top performer in its field. Price: $37. Contact: Hornady Manufacturing: (800) 338-3220;
