Although the 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge (or PRC for short) was originally designed for long range hunting, the 6.5 PRC is still an excellent cartridge for both long range sport shooting and hunting. Its increased case capacity enables velocities up to 80 m/s (262 fps) faster than the 6.5 Creedmoor or 6,555 SE. By design, the cartridge features a longer throat enabling the use of todays popular, high ballistic coefficient (BC) projectiles for long-range competitions. The 6.5 PRC case is a good match with relatively slow burning powder types. It is a great choice for heavy bullets, exceeding even 9,7 g / 150 grains with excellent retained energy and terminal performance for mid-sized and large game.
