So may I ask why sell your 6.5 PRC and not just build or buy a 300 PRC.?
If uts finances I got ya.
What are you intents in shooting with 300PRC? The 2 Mile Challenge in Ruidoso NM ?
I shoot a lot of different calibers from 204 Ruger up to 450 Bushmaster and Long Range 6.5 PRC and 300 PRC..I started out with Bergara Premier Pro 6.5PRC and the 300 PRC.Then to n a CUSTOM.If you get a rely qualified rifle builder to blue print your Bergara or whatever you choose and maybe a better barrel you will be saving some cash.If cash it's a problem then go full custom.
Long and short, partially finances. I have a work .308, a personal .308, and this 6.5 that MPA made.

I’d rather have a 300 PRC. I’m a huge fan of MPA, so I’d prefer they build one like they did this 6.5. That costs, plus I have no additional safe space.

Answer, sell the 6.5 with extras for the cost of the .300, get the fan base MPA…and free up safe space simultaneously.

Added bonus, standardized .30 cals in my household.

Talked myself out of getting a 300 PRC over the summer for a 6.5 PRC and buyers remorse has set.

I have a .308 for closer hunts/shooting…. The 300 would be obviously for LR/ELR.

Is there anyone with better insight than me that can talk me out of a 300 PRC or should I just go with what the heart desires?
I got a 300 PRC 2 years ago.. ammo was cheaper than 300 win mag, 35$ a box for hornady match. Now it is 129$ a box, if you can find it. That is more expensive than 338 LM.. even this summer i was able to pick up 100 rounds for 200$

Dang. I bought a bunch last week for 50$ a box. The guys charging 129$ are really taking advantage of the shortage. I’d be sure to take them off my vendor list.

It’s for sale for $55 a box at numerous places right now. See one of my prior posts with a link.

I SOLD my .300 Win mag Browning A-Bolt for a 6.5 PRC Browning X-Bolt Pro and love it.
To each his own, but for Nevada the 6.5 PRC is great.
I think it was a good trade.. Maybe not as pretty of a gun. My Browning A Bolt White Gold Medallion 7mm Remington Magnum is about as pretty of a gun as I own. But its no Safe Queen..I take her hunting too.LOL
I do love my Bergara Premier Pro 6.5 PRC and for the mountains I took my Mossberg 6.5 PRC.. That cheap gun shoots lights out.My opinion in Mossberg has changed.They wer cheap ole guns not well thought of when growing up.But they have come around or I just got lucky..LOL

My last cheap gun was a 6.5 CM RUGER American Predator (heavier barrel). I put a Timney trigger in it and it shot just as well as my RUGER Precision Rifle. I sold it because it had no bolt lock and I'd lost a few cartridges carrying it in brush.

My previous Browning A-Bolt was stainless steel that I had black Teflon coated by a company that iso coated Navy Seal firearms. It had an adjustable BOSS muzzle brake that tunes barrel harmonics for accuracy. It worked too.
