Blaser now offers a 6.5 PRC version of its R8 modular rifle. Essentially a magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor, the 6.5 PRC cartridge has a flatter trajectory and higher impact velocity.

The straight-pull R8 bolt-action rifle is renowned for its reliability, repeatability, speed and precision. Options include multiple stocks, a recoil reduction system, adjustable comb, adjustable length-of-pull and numerous barrels and bolt heads to facilitate quick conversions to different calibers.

The compact overall length and modularity of the Blaser R8 offer distinct advantages to hunters who travel frequently, allowing them to carry one rifle with several different barrels instead of transporting multiple guns around the world. The Blaser Saddle Mount system allows for easy and precise mounting of a riflescope by allowing the one-piece base of the mount to fit into notches machined into the top of the free-floating barrel. The barrel and saddle mount become one accurate unit, ensuring absolute repeatability once the scope has been zeroed—regardless of how many times the scope is removed from the barrel. Plus, the R8‘s concentric locking lugs with 14 locking surfaces provide 360-degree engagement, further enhancing accuracy. In addition, this rifle sports one of the safest actions in the world with a highly-acclaimed manual cocking mechanism.
