WHAT IS THE 6.5 PRC AMMO?
The 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge is a long-range target short-action magnum centerfire load released in 2018 by the ammo manufacturing company Hornady. This load was designed to shoot a high BC round at 3,200 ft/s from a short-action rifle. It was meant to produce the highest level of accuracy possible, flat trajectory, and extended range performance in a single compact for great impact on a target. Even though this round was released in 2018, it was only in 2021 that the 6.5 PRC Ammo for sale went mainstream, and several shooters quickly adopted it.
HISTORY OF THE 6.5 PRC
George Gardener, in 2013 came up with the initiative to create a cartridge that would meet the need of competitive shooters. The general reflection was to create a load to be fired from Precision Rifle Series (PRS) firearms. The PRS firearms were chosen because, during competitions, shooters are timed, so they have to perform quick and follow-up shoots at ranges sometimes above 1000 yards. Due to the nature of these competitions, shooters could not use large loads of more than .308 in caliber or muzzle velocity above 3,200fps. Therefore they required a bullet like the 6.5 PRC Ammunition that has a high muzzle velocity. Medium bore, flat trajectory, and mild recoiling to be efficient during competitions
