New 6.5 PRC Offering for the Savage Arms 110 Precision Lineup
The 6.5 PRC was originally designed as a long-range hunting round,” said Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms. “This is essentially a magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor—but much of what makes the 6.5 PRC cartridge great for hunting makes it a contender on the competition side, too. 6.5 bullets are known for their exceptional ballistic coefficients and the 6.5 PRC adds more velocity from its short-magnum design. They are performing really well and are especially capable in adverse conditions.
The new Savage 110 Precision chambered in 6.5 PRC will feature a Savage Factory Blueprinted action, a matte black carbon steel heavy barrel threaded in 5/8×24, an MDT LSS XL Chassis with FDE Cerakote, an exclusive skeletonized stock with fully adjustable comb height and length of pull, a user-adjustable 1.5-4lb AccuTrigger to match the rest of the 110 Precision lineup, 20 MOA 1-piece EGW rail, one AICS pattern magazine, and a BA Muzzle Brake. The entire package will set you back $1.595. As an added bonus for all of you wrong-handed people out there, the new 6.5 PRC Savage 110 Precision will also be available in a left-handed configuration for the same price.
