The innovative 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge (PRC) by Hornady Precision Hunter has been designed exclusively for shooters looking to take down medium to large game at 1000+ yards. Each 6.5 PRC is loaded with a 143 grain ELD-X bullet with Hornady’s Heat Shield polymer tip. Hornady crafted this cartridge to provide pinpoint accuracy at the longest possible range, but with a surprisingly light recoil. Hunter’s carrying rifles with 1/8 twist rates will be able to experience these precision loaded cartridges to their fullest capacity 6.5 prc brass.
The ELD-X bullet exits the muzzle at 2960 fps with 2782 ft/lbs of energy. The Heat Sheild tip protects the structure of the bullet where other polymer tips would deform as a result of the rising inflight temperatures. The expansion of the ELD-X is wide and reliable, and the resulting wound channels are devastating to soft tissue, cartilage, and bone. Hornady loads these 6.5 prc cartridges into Boxer-primed brass casings that are new-production, non-corrosive, and reloadable.
Many hunters consider Hornady cartridges to be the best factory loaded rounds on the market. Order a few 20-round boxes today and experience these new 6.5 PRC cartridges for yourself!
