Lapua, world-renowned for producing the finest cartridge cases and ammunition products, is happy to announce the addition of 6.5 PRC to our 2021 product offering.
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 6,5×55 SE. By design, the cartridge features a longer throat enabling the use of today’s 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.
The 6.5 PRC case (Product No. 4 PH 6023) will be available for home reloaders in spring of 2021.
