A name which is being discussed a lot lately is the 6.5 Precision Rilfle Cartridge, which was designed to achieve the highest levels of accuracy, with a flat trajectory and extended range performance. The 6.5 PRC has got a repeatable accuracy, low recoil and a reasonable barrel life, which still produces very high velocities of more than 2,960 fps with performances beyond 1000 yards. The 6.5 PRC is the big brother of the 6.5 Creedmoor, it can fit in both the short and medium actions. It has got a 30 degree cartridge case shoulder with an efficient case geometry. The 6.5 PRC is available from Hornady in the Match and Precision Hunter line Up, in 147 grain and 143 grain respectively.
