    For those interested, here's a write up I did on Accurate Shooter on my 6.5 PRC I built earlier this year. Because the round was fairly new, and so much info in different places, I tried to consolidate as much as I could, and show my results. Kind of a long read, but lots of questions can be answered in regard to the round.

    Nicely done, very good article. I'd be proud of that final 600yd group anyday, Heck, I'd frame it!

    When shooting factory Hornady 6.5prc ammo, do you get ejector swipes on the case head?

    I built a 6.5prc and when shooting the 147gr match ammo, i get ejector swipes on nearly all of the brass. I don't see excessive sings of pressure on the primer. I'm wondering if everyone sees this cause of soft hornady brass with this round?

    it averages 2928fps on my 26" barrel.
