There are a lot of people who have joined the miniature 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) revolution when it comes to long-distance big-game hunting as well as long-range target shooting. To cater to those precision rifle cartridge loyalists, Federal Premium has tailored a NEW Fusion 6.5 PRC load. It boasts the same Fusion bullet that we have all come to know and enjoy, but is simply crafted for the unique design of the 6.5 PRC round.

Not surprisingly, all of this ammunition is boxed in quantities of 20, and it has an MSRP of $30.95 per box. This Fusion 6.5 PRC ammunition is well-suited for not only hunting and taking down game, but also can be a great paper load as well for the weekend sniper who wants to show his/her range buddies how tight of a group he/she can achieve. Federal Premium offers some additional words in support of this new ammunition offering:
Fusion® was the first rifle ammunition specifically built for deer hunting—and it’s still the best, offering the best expansion and weight retention in its class. It’s an ideal match for the new 6.5 PRC cartridge, which has quickly caught hunters’ attention thanks to its long-range accuracy, flat trajectory and manageable recoil. Paired with the Fusion bullet’s molecularly fused jacket and pressure-formed core, the new load provides tag-filling penetration and stopping power.
I, for one, still am firmly planted on the 6.5 Creedmoor bandwagon and am enjoying the ride, but I completely understand the novelty and fascination with the 6.5 PRC round.
