Mauser recently announced that its popular model 18 bolt-action rifle is now available in 6.5 PRC. A classically styled, rugged hunting rifle, the addition of 6.5 PRC delivers improved long-range trajectory capability to the platform.
“The Mauser is a big seller here in the United States because of its ultimate reliability, durability and accuracy at an unbeatable price point,” said Christian Socher, CEO of Blaser USA. “We wanted to add the 6.5 PRC chambering as an additional caliber option for those who hunt and shoot at longer ranges.”
The 6.5 PRC delivers a flatter trajectory and higher impact velocity than even the 6.5 Creedmoor, which has exploded in popularity as well. Moreover, the 6.5 PRC excels at everything from benchrest competition to hunting medium to large game, according to Mauser.
Mauser 18 Features
Firstly, the Mauser utilizes a rugged synthetic stock, perfect for hard use afield. For better grip, the stock also includes two areas of soft inlay.
Meanwhile, a steel receiver and cold-hammer-forged barrel adds to the durability. Also, a three-position safety enables hunters to carry a round in the chamber without worry of the bolt nudging out of battery.
The detachable box magazine holds five rounds. Additionally, an adjustable trigger enables hunters to dial in the pull to their preferred weight. Above all, the 6.5 PRC joins .243 Win., .308 Win., .270 Win., .30-06, 7mm Rem. Mag, .300 Win. Mag. and 6.5 Creedmoor in the Mauser line.
