Winchester Introduces New Loads for 6.5 PRC

EAST ALTON, Ill. (February 11, 2021) — Winchester continues its legacy on the forefront of long-range hunting and shooting by adding the 6.5 PRC cartridge to its lineup of products for 2021. The 6.5 PRC cartridge continues to grow in popularity with its high-velocity cartridges that deliver relatively minimal recoil.

The first of two new 6.5 PRC offerings includes a 142-grain Nosler® AccuBond® polymer-tipped hunting bullet and is available in the Expedition Big Game Long Range™ lineup. This provides hunters with wind-drilling, ridge-to-ridge accuracy and bonded performance for maximum weight retention and energy transfer.

Winchester will also offer the 6.5 PRC in a 140-grain Match boattail hollow point that puts long-range precision at the shooter’s trigger finger. The high-ballistic coefficient results in low drag and maintains flatter trajectories at a long distance.

Look for new Winchester 6.5 PRC loads in 20-round boxes at a retailer or dealer near you.
