The PRC’s barrels are specified to have a 1:8” twist rate, giving optimum stabilization for the longer bullets like the 147-grain Hornady ELD Match. The 30-degree shoulder not only gives excellent headspacing for the beltless cartridge, but gives a bit more room in the case. At first glance the 6.5 PRC is immediately reminiscent of the WSM line of cartridges, in that it presents the same short, squat look; however, when compared to the .300 WSM, you can see the datum line – distance from cartridge base to shoulder – has been pushed back for the 6.5 PRC. This is invariably tied to the need to maintain proper seating of the long, high B.C. bullets in a short-action magazine. Perhaps that change on datum line makes a difference, I immediately noticed that the 6.5 PRC had none of the feeding issues I’ve encountered with the WSMs, at least not in the Montana Rifle Company AHR that I have for testing. The 6.5 PRC feeds like a dream from that rifle, although the diameter of the cartridge only allows for three cartridges down in the magazine.
The Hornady factory ammunition will give a trajectory which nearly mimics the .300 Winchester Magnum with 180-grain bullets, at least out to 400 or 500 yards. However the felt recoil of the 6.5 PRC is much less than that of the .300 Winnie; so for game up to and including elk, the 6.5 PRC will make a good choice as an all-around cartridge. With a 200-yard zero, expect 6.5” of drop at 300 yards, 19” or so at 400 yards and a yardstick of drop out at 500; this is a time-proven trajectory for hunters who limit themselves to sane hunting ranges. I’ve found with a trajectory this flat, if I have to hold off fur, I need to get closer. I also appreciate the fact that a muzzle velocity of 2,900-2,950 fps tends to extend barrel life considerably, when compared to the flamethrowers that run at 3,200-3,400 fps.
So, is the 6.5 PRC the perfect incarnation of the 6.5mm cartridge? Well, not necessarily. Is it a cartridge that is unnecessary? No I don’t that’s the case either. I think the 6.5 PRC is one of few examples of what represents what we hunters and shooters have always pursued: a cartridge that is easy on the barrel, easier on the shoulder, and gives the type of trajectory that is noteworthy. While it hasn’t exactly drawn me over from camp 6.5-284 Norma, I do see the benefits of the 6.5 PRC for a shooter who hasn’t gotten into the 6.5 game. It will handle the hunting situations and target situation equally well; if you’re making the mental comparison to the Creedmoor, I feel the PRC is a better choice for doing double duty. However, if you own a 6.5×55 Swede, or a 6.5-284 Norma, I don’t see enough of a difference in performance to make the leap. can get to at https://riveraammunition.com/
