Ruger Precision Rifle 300 PRC, 6.5 PRC
To start taking advantage of those ballistics, the Ruger Precision Rifle starts with a 26-inch heavy-contour barrel that measures .0875 inches at the muzzle. A Ruger Precision Rifle Magnum Muzzle Brake with a tunable compensator also helps mitigate recoil and muzzle jump.
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 over 200 FPS over the immensely popular 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge, the 6.5 PRC has been dubbed its “big brother.” This rifle features a 26″ medium-contour barrel (0.75″ at the muzzle) 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.
The rifles also feature free-floated, cold hammer-forged barrels manufactured from 4140 chrome-moly steel with 5R rifling for minimum bullet upset. Further, minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber deliver outstanding accuracy and longevity.
These rifles also feature a hard-coat anodized, free-float handguard configured with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots. Additionally, the handguard includes slots on all four sides for improved scope clearance and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. Integral QD sling attachment points eliminate the need for additional adaptors. Meanwhile a flat bottom 1.50-inch dovetail mates with RRS S.O.A.R. and similar QD systems.
