Hornady 6.5 PRC Ammo Posted: June 26th, 2018

A brand-new cartridge from Hornady Ammunition hit the market at the end of 2017. Called the 6.5 PRC, the PRC stands for Precision Rifle Cartridge, and the new round has been dubbed by Hornady to be the “big brother” of the 6.5 Creedmoor, a cartridge that has become a popular go-to cartridge for long-range shooters and we have in stock 6.5 PRC Ammo here.

Engineers designed the Hornady 6.5 PRC to provide precision shooters with the most accuracy possible, along with enhanced performance at longer ranges. The cartridge also provides a flatter trajectory than most go-to long-range rifle cartridges, making it easier to dial in at distance. All of these features are packed into a cartridge that can operate in most short- or medium-action rifles on the market. The case is compatible with standard 0.532-inch magnum bolt faces and features a 30-degree case shoulder.

Hornady loads the 6.5 PRC with what they call a “moderate” powder charge, allowing the load to produce consistent accuracy, especially at longer distances. In addition, the load provides shooters with a low-recoil option that also doesn’t burn through barrels, ensuring that rifle owners get the most out of their barrels. With all of these benefits, Hornady also ensures shooters that the cartridge produces high velocities that allow the round to perform effectively well beyond 1,000 yards.

With the introduction of the 6.5 PRC, Hornady also announced the roll out of two different cartridge options, bringing the new round to both hunters and match shooters. The Hornady Match load is offered with a 147-grain ELD match bullet that features a sectional density of .301, along with a G1 ballistic coefficient of .697 and a G7 BC of .351.

The Hornady 6.5 PRC ELD Match load produces a muzzle velocity of 2,910 fps and 2,764 foot-pounds of energy. At 500 yards, velocity measures 2,275 fps, energy measures 1,689 foot-pounds and the drop measures -36.5 inches at the same distance. The numbers were recorded after firing through a 24-inch test barrel.

The Hornady 6.5 PRC Precision Hunter offering is loaded with a 143-grain ELD-X bullet, which features a sectional density of .293 and a ballistic coefficient of .625 (G1) and .315 (G7). Hornady classifies this as a round designed for use on medium-to-large game weighing up to 1,500 pounds.

The Precision Hunter offering produces a muzzle velocity of 2,960 fps and a muzzle energy of 2,782 foot-pounds. At 500 yards, velocity measures 1,604 fps and projectile energy measures 1,604 foot-pounds. Ballistic trajectory at 500 yards was recorded at -36.2 inches.

PolyCase Inceptor ARX Ammo Posted: October 24th, 2015

As time goes on and technology improves, we often see new ammo hit the market that advertises some form of “new technology”. More often than not this new advanced ammo also has a rather advanced price point. We like to call this designer ammo. Now don’t take this the wrong way, we enjoy every bit of this. We believe, as with anything, it’s important to explore new ideas whether they may seem radical or not. Most of you have seen the hyped up R.I.P. Ammo developed by G2 Research. Very cool, very effective but very expensive. However, it does have it’s place.

Now to the point. We wanted to showcase a round that we feel hasn’t been hyped nearly as much as the R.I.P. Ammo but certainly has it’s place for an effective defense round and may even be a great choice for 3 gunners looking for a lighter weight ammo. We present to you, PolyCase® Inceptor™ ARX™ Ammo. These patent-pending polymer-copper injection-molded Cu/P™ bullets are loaded to SAAMI specifications to achieve higher velocities than most other self-defense bullets through advanced design and precision engineering. Their unique shape mitigates several of the inherent disadvantages of hollow-point rounds, such as clogging with debris or clothing, and feed ramp issues. Inceptor ARX® cartridges are designed to function in all weapons.

Ok, so that sounds good and all but how does this ammo perform?  We know it’s very light weight.  It’s not frangible.  It doesn’t expand.  What exactly will this ammo do when it impacts its target?  We have found a great video on Youtube that should answer these important questions.

As you can see, the PolyCase Inceptor ammo proves to be a great addition to the market for available defense ammunition. It has perfect penetration with a larger early wound channel and appears to have been designed to tumble in the later stages of the impact. The lighter weight of the round would also be ideal for those trying to decrease the overall weight of their concealed carry rig.  Although it is rather expensive, it’s certainly worth a look and definitely worth shooting as it may in fact be the perfect fit for your application. So where can you get it? Well, we do know of a great Ammunition Search Engine that just so happens to have quite a bit of it listed >> Find PolyCase Inceptor Ammo.
