Hornady® 6mm ARC Wins Ballistic Best

Grand Island, NE — The Hornady® 6mm ARC (Advanced Rifle Cartridge) has won the Ballistic Best Editors’ Select award for Best New Caliber.

The Ballistic Best awards acknowledge manufacturers who took things to new heights in 2020. The magazine’s editors honored special companies and products for their quality and innovation.

“Our staff got an early taste of the cartridge's potency on a predator hunt in Wyoming” said Ballistic Best editors. “This cartridge is extremely innovative, there's no question that it's here to stay.”

The 6mm ARC is available in the following options:

Tested, selected and fielded by a specialized group within the U.S. Department of Defense for its multipurpose combat rifle program, the 6mm ARC is a truly versatile cartridge that maximizes the potential of the AR-15 platform.

The 6mm ARC delivers substantially better ballistics than the 5.56 NATO with similar recoil and yet delivers comparable ballistics to the venerable 308 Winchester with 30% less weight on both firearms platform and ammunition.
