Savage Arms 6.5 PRC Rifles
Fans of the short-action powerhouse 6.5 PRC have new options from Savage Arms. The high ballistic coefficient of the bullet combined with the power of the cartridge makes this an ideal pairing, and these rifles deliver the 6.5 PRC’s magnum potential with Savage’s legendary accuracy.
The 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge (PRC) is essentially a supercharged 6.5 Creedmoor. The round has tremendous velocity, even at long ranges. While this increases accuracy at greater distances, the 6.5 PRC is much more than a target round. The increase in velocity converts to great force on impact. This combination of accuracy and power has made the 6.5 PRC a favorite of long-range hunters.
“Some hunters are hesitant about to pull the trigger on animals at longer ranges,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “Some rounds lose their ability to transfer sufficient energy as they slow down. Not the 6.5 PRC. Savage’s new 6.5 PRC rifles are capable of match-grade accuracy and lethal terminal ballistic performance.”
