Description

Product Overview of 6.5 prc

The 6.5 PRC Loaded with the most advanced all-range hunting bullet available, Precision Hunter Ammunition sets a new standard of accurate, deadly and dependable hunting performance. Your trophy has never been closer– even if it’s far away! Featuring the radically superior ELD-X bullet with patented Heat Shield tip, Precision Hunter will soon be the “go-to” load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges.

 

The Heat Shield tip of the Hornady ELD-X bullet defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. A streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design, plus the highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, combined with the patent pending Heat Shield tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet. ELD-Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions. With high velocity, 0-400 yard impact, the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high Interlock ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50-60% weight retention. Upon low velocity, 400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting conventional expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90% retained weight the bullet provides deep penetration and large wound cavities.  This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

Features of 6.5 PRC

 

  • Heat Shield Tip forms the perfect meplat

  1. roddy

    After shooting several hundred rounds thought it I couldn’t ask for more. Several other people have shot it and are surprised at how well it feels and shoots. I had some problems with factory reloads, after that not one issue. Even steel ammo runs great.

    I bought my Ruger ar-556 AR15 from impactguns Boise Idaho location. First of all the staff there is outstanding very very helpful,knowledgeable and just flat-out awesome people.!. I’ve had my Ruger now for about four months and I’ve put about a thousand rounds through it and mostly cheap ammo! perFecta,American Eagle and Some TulAmmo. Not one malfunction whatsoever! Out of the box awesome weapon! And you can’t beat the price. The only thing I’m going to upgrade is going to be the trigger. The trigger is a bit gritty and inconsistent But that is to be Expected with a entry level AR. Other than that I would highly recommend it. Great job Ruger!!

  4. Author Mark

    My standard for 45 acp. Wish this order would have made it to my door – ups lost it.

    Excellent product that goes “bang” every time. Very consistent results from load to load. One primer for magnum and standard large pistol rounds simplifies my inventory situation. Try them and you’ll love them also.

  7. vakfile

    i bought mine for fathers day back in June. i have taken it out shooting since then here in Utah. Absolute flawless weapon system, excellent quality, well built and easy to handle-shoot-clean. No issues with any malfunctions and a very accurate weapon system.

  8. vakfile

    I use them to load 45 ACP. Very happy with them.

  9. peter

    Remington primers are my favorite whether the smallest or the largest and all in between. I have never had one fail in four decades.

  10. dareln

    The windham weaponry src is just as nice as other $1,500 AR’s and the fit/finish sometimes better..properly staked and particle inspected with chrome lined chambers and bores. Carpenter steel and commercial tubes for easy changes. Nice metal mags and a top notch warranty. What also impressed me was their customer service,free case and sling.very fine rifle.even the trigger feels good..tight and crisp.

  11. dareln

    I ordered 5K of these LPPs when they were on sale hoping they would be good performers in my 45acp reloads. I am not disappointed! They are easy to seat (I thought too easy at first) and I am pleased with their performance. Every primer has fired so far… several hundred loaded and shot so far. I find these equal or better in quality to CCI LPPs. Great product

  12. vannick625

    I bought this rifle because the price point was right for me and I don’t need a "race" nor "combat" AR15 with lots of rails, lights ect. First off the fit & finish of the rifle is first rate. No play between the upper & lower receiver and the included hard case, sling, 30 round magazine and empty chamber plug were a bonus. I mounted a Vortex Strikefire red-dot on the rail, no BUIS, and off to the range. Off a sandbag rest at 50 Yd.’s to zero in and the first 10 shots were all over the place? 6"X6". I forget to KEEP BOTH EYES OPEN, D’oah, as this was my first time shooting a red-dot sight. The next 10 shots put me in the 9 ring and the next 10, adjusted further, resulted in a 3" group center mass, the best I can shoot. Note: I was shooting .223 ammo not 5.56mm and the slight difference in chamber dimensions will make a difference in accuracy. Importent note: Although the rifle comes well lubricated out of the box and following the pre-firing cleaning as required by the owners manual, I experenced a failure of the bolt to hold open after the last round was fired on 2 different magazines (50 rounds). I was told by Windham tech support that one needs to "generously" coat the bolt carrier with gun grease, not gun oil, during the break-in as this part takes the most stress during the firing cycle. Overall, if your looking for an entry level AR rifle this is, in my opinion, one of the best options out there.

  13. vannick625

    I purchase these primers mostly because they were such a great deal. I have been pleased with performance. Ignition has been 100% so far (several hundred shot) and they are very easy to seat. At first I thought too easy, but I’ve had no problems at all in that regard. I find Remington LPPs to be equal to CCIs or Tula products. Look for your best deal and buy!

  14. mel

    I can’t believe the quality of this gun for the price. Actually it’s got the best looking finish on any AR that I’ve seen and it shoots as good as it looks. Took it straight out of the box and fired 90 fast rounds through it with no failures of any sort.

  15. mel

    Unlike a competitor’s brand, I haven’e had a single misfire. They also feed perfectly through my old Dillon RL 450. Very pleased. Price was good also.

  16. joe

    I had been shopping and shopping for a Windham for a decent price for quite some time, then finally checked with impact on their pricing (made purchase at Boise Id store). They beat all local dealers on their pricing for this model. My wife and I took this out to shoot on our anniversary, along with out other firearms, and had a blast, literally. I purchased this model because of the aircraft aluminum upper and lower, where as the carbon fiber is…well carbon fiber. I dont have anything against the carbon models but I personally like the feel of metal. The upper and lower fit well together, no sloppiness, small amount of play but barely any. Many complain about play between lowers and uppers when in reality the ar 15 was designed to be able to be taken apart with your hands. Excessive play between upper and lower is another story but a small amount is to be expected with most. I have seen ar 15’s that are so tightly put together that you have to use a punch to get the take down pins out. Ultimately this rifle is spot on with quality material, fit, finish and ergos. Meets all expectations I desired. I would recommend it. Magpul flip up sights were perfect to start with (I bought these separate, but they were discounted because i bought them the same day as the rifle) Bonus is the life time warranty that is transferable. Thanks impact for another quality piece!

  17. joe

    Worked everytime I pulled the trigger. I use them in the .45 auto rim and .44 mag. No problums ever. Been using them for years……Doug

    I bought this rifle at a local gun shop. I went in looking for and entry level AR-15 to customize. I talked a lot with the guys in there and in the end they recommended this Windham Weaponry flat top to me for the plans I had for my rifle. The original owner of Bushmaster started a new company and start producing this AR-15 under Windham Weaponry. I love mine. I have a bipod on mine and every time I shoot I am always in the middle of the silhouette with a 3" wide ‘column’ group. I’m not a regular rifle shooter so I am very happy with that group. Every shot is right down the center of the target with some climbing and some falling, but all are in the middle. The few that strayed left or right were definitely my fault and I called it out as soon as I let the shot go. I couldn’t be happier with mine. I can’t speak to the durability or longevity of the gun. I’ve only put about 100 rounds through it so far. I don’t have a lot of money so ammo doesn’t come very often. Great rifle though. Highly recommend for an entry level black rifle. It would be up to someone with more experience and range time with this rifle to offer a recommendation on the other tiers.

  19. luke89

    Excellent primer. Very consistent priming and to date I have never had a bad primer.. thats 40+ years and over 100,000 Remington primers.

    Posted by Arctic Soldier on Nov 14th 2014

    Super impressed by the reliability of this weapon. I have built 25+ ARs, some with pistons. Accuracy is not bad either, best group has been .4" w/ 77gr SMKs and .9" with (ZQI/MKE) 62gr FMJs. No malfunctions with 1200 rounds so far

  21. nathalie

    Use these primers for my 45 acp. Good functionality with no problems encountered. Don’t know of anything really negative to say about this product.

  22. matha

    Was looking for my first AR15 and overwhelmed with all of the choices out there. DPMS, S&W, PSA, ATI, etc. in the entry level price range. Should I spend more?? This question I kept asking myself. Stumbled onto the Ruger AR-556 and was impressed with the features including the forward assist and dust cover for the same money as the M&P Sport. After some consideration I purchased the Ruger. I’m super happy with it! The build quality and performance are superb. It’s very accurate and now after nearly 1000 rounds through it (both 5.56 & .223) with no malfunctions or issues whatsoever, I’m still very happy and would recommend this gun to anyone looking for an inexpensive AR and no need to spend more!

  23. matha

    I started reloading at age 11. I’m 61 now and shoot 15000 reloads a year down from 30M or so when I was a Law Enforcement competitor. Now as then always Remington Primed. They’ve never let me down…..unless it was my fault. I’ve tried other brands but feel like I’m cheating on my wife when I do. Nothing is like Remington.

  24. licd

    Worth more than the sticker price. This is a solid product. Hats off to Ruger. I’m in love with mine.

  25. licd

    My order for the #2 1/2 Remington primers was to add to my current supply. I’ve used the Rem #21/2 for 35 years of reloading and have never been disappointed.

  26. theo

    I purchased my Ruger 5.56 about 6 months ago and have fired over 700 rounds without a stoppage or malfunction. I would highly recommend this weapon to anyone looking for a dependable and accurate weapon on a budget. I was shooting respectable groupings at 100 yards using the factory sights.

  27. theo

    These are my choice for all the 45 ACP I load. I load a lot, shoot a lot, and these Remington primers NEVER let me down. The package/trays are very small and store more efficiently.

  28. mayday

    Did everything I expected and then some! Well worth the money!

  29. mayday

    As a revolver shooter it was important to find a primer with a soft cup to replace Federal primers. The Winchester primers work fine which is important in speed competitions.

  30. samh

    I just purchased mine and have seen ZERO problems with it! Out of the box it was accurate and ready to go! I’ve fired around 500 rounds of 5.56 through it with no jams or issues. Its every bit as good as my friends’ top of the line AR rifles. I Just added a quad-rail and you can no longer tell it is in anyway an entry level rifle. Looks great, and shoots great! AWESOME GUN!!!!

  31. samh

    finally in stock

  32. sorel

    Don’t let the lower price on these rounds full you. I have uses many of these rounds with zero issues and I have gotten some of my best groupings with this ammo.

  33. sorel

    Winchester primers have been around longer than I have and have always done the job exactly as expected. I will continue to use them.

  34. hinds

    Very disappointed with purchase. Too much plastic . Not what I expected. Accuracy is not the best and I will be parting ways with this asap

  35. hinds

    I used them for reloading, as my Reloader hates CCI

  36. vin2

    This is my first ever AR-15 and I absolutely love this rifle. If you plan on putting a duel point sling on this, you’ll have to buy an extra attachment for the front (under the front sight). I also put a butt-pad / recoil pad on mine after my shoulder became sore after shooting it. Recoil on this gun is next to nothing and it shoots very smooth and extremely accurate. I’ve fed it brass and steel case ammo and only ran into one jam. The jam, I believe, was probably caused by user error when putting the ammo into the magazine. I’ve never had a jam since then. This is my first Ruger and this gun made me fall in love with them. I highly recommend it!

  37. vin2

    I have been re-loading since 1978. Winchester primers are my go to primer when they are available. Very consistent in ignition and superior in performance overall.

  38. ppfa

    Excellent buyer

  39. ppfa

    Work fine for me I like the non- plated finish.

  40. hope

    I was torn between an AR556 or a SR556. Saved money and got the AR556. What a great weapon. When I get my tax return I plan to buy 4 more for everyone in the family. Great gun and priced right. I’ve run 420 rounds through it with one failure to eject. That’s it. Accuracy is very good and I’d rank it almost as good as my SR762. But that isn’t fair because I feel the 7.62 to be THE round for an AR. 9 of 10 for me.

  41. anonymous

    Looks impressive, hope I never need to see if it works! But it sure looks awesome. A definite attacker stopper!!

    Had the product, great price, fast service
