USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Throw Out the Old Rules! Until now, true long-range shooting from the AR platform has largely been reserved to larger “AR-308” rifles. Those old rules go out the window with the 6mm ARC from Hornady – a cartridge that delivers an 800 to 1,000-yard effective range from a standard AR-15 platform.

What is 6mm ARC Ammunition?

The 6mm ARC cartridge is based on the 6.5 Grendel case necked down for 6mm bullets. Good News! If you already have a rifle chambered in 6.5 Grendel, the ONLY thing you need to change is the barrel. Everything else – bolt, magazines, gas system – is compatible with 6mm ARC.

Other pluses:

  • 6mm ARC fits standard AR-15 rifles & Short/Mini action bolt rifles.
  • Built-in 30-degree case shoulder for reliable feeding.
  • Short, squat case profile similar to the 6mm PPC, one of the most accurate bench rest cartridges ever.
  • SAAMI spec cartridge, so NOT a fly-by-night Wildcat!

Intrigued, but I’ll give it a year and some real world data and review. But this may, if t holds up to the hype, be the reason I finally break down and acquire a AR15 platform rifle (and maybe a new Bergara HMR)
