Ruger recently announced the addition of 300 PRC and 6.5 PRC chamberings to the popular Precision Rifle line. The new magnum caliber platform rifles add the 300 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) and its long, heavy-for-caliber bullets.

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.
