Hornady Precision Hunter - 6.5 PRC - 143gr - ELD-X - 81621:

The name says it all! The 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge was designed to achieve the highest levels of accuracy, flat trajectory and extended range performance in a sensibly designed compact package. Utilizing moderate powder charges that result in repeatable accuracy, low recoil and reasonable barrel life, the 6.5 PRC produces high velocities for target shooting with performance well beyond 1000 yards.
Featuring the radically superior ELD-X bullet with Heat Shield tip, Precision Hunter is the ideal load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges. 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 percent weight retention. 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 percent retained weight, the bullet provides deep penetration and large cavities.

Features & Design

  • The highest-in-class BC over its entire trajectory.
  • Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design
  • Highly concentric AMP bullet jackets
  • Heat Shield tip for radically superior aerodynamic efficiency.
  • Cases are carefully selected based on strict criteria
  • Powder is matched carefully to each specific load for optimal pressure
  • Extremely tight tolerances and strict quality control
  • Dubbed the big brother to the 6.5 Creedmoor, the 6.5 PRC fits in short or medium actions
