TFB Review: Mossberg's Patriot LRT in 6.5 PRC – Marksman on a Budget?

Earlier this year I had the chance to take Mossberg’s Patriot LR Tactical (LRT) out for a spin at Gunsite Academy. The new rifle, chambered in 6.5 PRC in my case, is Mossberg’s adaptation of their previously successful Patriot line of bolt action rifles, which are now being adapted into this new long-range capable rifle. The Patriot action was intended to be Mossberg’s “budget” line of bolt actions and can typically be found starting around $550 MSRP. The Patriot LRT is simultaneously an extension of the Patriot line, being a budget-oriented rifle, but is now a whole different animal with its new long-range chamberings in 6.5 PRC, .308 Winchester, and 6.5 Creedmoor, as well as a brand new MDT stock. Today I’ll share my experiences with the rifle over the last couple of months which should hopefully give you some insight as to whether or not you’d like to pick one of these up for yourself.

We are off to a great start and have our first volley of submissions. First through the gate is Clay with his big game hunting build named “The Hulk”.
