Hornady® Wins NRA Golden Bullseye Award

Grand Island, NE – The Hornady 6.5 PRC has been named the 2019 Ammunition Product of the Year by the editors of American Hunter Magazine, as part of the National Rifle Association Publications Golden Bullseye Awards.

The 6.5 PRC was designed to achieve the highest levels of accuracy, flat trajectory and extended range performance in a sensibly designed compact package. Utilizing moderate powder charges that result in repeatable accuracy, low recoil and reasonable barrel life, the 6.5 PRC produces high velocities for target shooting with performance well beyond 1,000 yards.

“We are thrilled to receive this award and would like to thank George Gardner of GA Precision for the inspiration to build the 6.5 PRC” said Neil Davies, Hornady Director of Marketing. “We would also like to thank all of our friends on the gun making side of our industry that supported us by chambering this fantastic cartridge” Davies added.

Rifle makers currently chambering the 6.5 PRC include: Axial Precision Rifles, Browning, Bergara, Ruger, Christensen Arms, FIERCE Firearms, GA Precision, Gunwerks, Hill Country Rifles, Horizon Firearms, Mauser, McRee’s Precision, Montana Rifles, Patriot Valley Arms, PROOF Research, Ruger, Sauer, Savage Firearms, Stuteville Precision, Seekins Precision and Trident Armory.
