Ruger Adds to its Precision Rifle Line

Built on the magnum caliber platform, the Ruger Precision Rifle in .300 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) harnesses the benefits of a cartridge developed to take advantage of long, heavy-for-caliber bullets capable of delivering the highest levels of accuracy and aerodynamic performance. This rifle features a 26-inch heavy-contour barrel and a Ruger Precision Rifle Magnum Muzzle Brake with a tunable compensator to effectively reduce recoil and muzzle jump. SRP: $2,099.

Ruger is adding two new calibers to its Precision Rifle line.

Built within the envelope of the original short-action Ruger Precision Rifle, the new 6.5 PRC offering provides a compact package designed for a cartridge that allows for superior accuracy, flat trajectory, and extended-range performance. With an increase in velocity of more than 200 fps over the immensely popular 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge, the 6.5 PRC has been dubbed its “big brother.”

The 6.5 PRC features a 26-inch medium-contour barrel with a factory-installed Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid Muzzle Brake to effectively reduce recoil while minimizing noise and blast to the sides of the shooter. SRP: $1,599.

Like all Ruger Precision Rifles, these new models feature a highly accurate, free-float, cold-hammer-forged barrel manufactured from 4140 chrome-moly steel with 5R rifling for minimal bullet upset. Minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber deliver outstanding accuracy and longevity. (ruger.com)
