Common to both versions: a cold hammer-forged barrel manufactured from 4140 chrome-moly steel with 5R rifling; and an anodized, free-floating handguard that includes QD sling attachment points.

The .300 PRC version (#18083, $2,099) includes a 26" heavy-contour barrel (0.875" at muzzle) and a Ruger Magnum muzzle brake with a tunable compensator to reduce recoil and thus, muzzle jump.

As for the new 6.5 PRC offering (#18042, $1,599) it features a 26" medium-contour barrel (0.75" at muzzle) with a factory-installed Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid muzzle brake to effectively reduce recoil while minimizing noise and blast to the sides of the shooter.
