- Efficient Design: 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”). It’s efficient case geometry features a long cartridge case neck and 30 degree cartridge case shoulder.
- Best­-in-­Class BCS: Verified by Doppler radar the Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain the highest-in­-class BC over its entire trajectory.
- Match Accurate Hunting Bullet: Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP bullet jackets + Heat Shield tip combine for radically superior aerodynamic efficiency.
- Devastating Conventional Rangr Performance: With high velocity 0-­400 yard impact the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high InterLock ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50­-60% weight retention.
- Best Extended Range Terminal Performance Available: Upon low velocity 400+ yard impacts the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting controlled expansion with a large mushroom and 85­-90% retained weight the bullet provides deep penetration and large cavities. Available as component bullets or in factory loaded Precision Hunter ammunition.
