Founded in Utah in 1995, with roots in the aerospace industry, Christensen Arms developed the first carbon fiber rifle barrel. This patented technology resulted in one of the most innovative advances in firearms within the last two and a half decades. With over 20 years of firearm experience focusing on using top-tier aerospace materials and processes, Christensen Arms manufactures some of the most lightweight, precise, and accurate firearms in the industry and around the globe.
The Hornady 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) is a “magnumized” 6.5 Creedmoor. It offers about 250 feet per second (fps) more velocity than the 6.5 Creedmoor for any bullet weight chosen. For comparison, consider the move from a .308 Win. to a .300 Win. Mag. will net about a 300 fps increase, so the “magnum” title is a good fit for the 6.5 PRC.
The 6.5 PRC is the king of all the “magnum” 6.5 cartridges because it offers fantastic performance without excessively shortening barrel life or giving punishing recoil. A 6.5 PRC has enough barrel life for you to shoot a competitive season without having to replace your barrel.
The 6.5 PRC was originally developed as a long-range hunting round. Hornady opted to design a short magnum hunting cartridge around the 6.5mm caliber because the rifle-shooting population was finally embracing this caliber and its superior ballistic coefficients it offers.
Math plays a significant role in long-range shooting and the math behind the 6.5mm is compelling. It offers a high muzzle velocity and the heavy-for-caliber bullets hold on to that velocity well.
