Brownells unveiled a line of exclusive barrels and complete uppers chambered in Hornady’s newly-announced 6mm ARC – a cartridge designed to optimize long-range performance potential in standard-sized AR-15 rifles.
Using the same bolt and magazine as the 6.5 Grendel, the 6mm ARC capitalizes on the enhanced ballistics of 6mm bullets. The 108 grain ELD MATCH load from Hornady lists a muzzle velocity of 2,750 FPS out of a 24-inch barrel.
Some models of Brownells exclusive AR-15 barrels chambered in 6mm ARC are in stock and shipping now. The complete uppers and other barrels are live for pre-orders and are expected to be in stock and shipping later in summer 2020.
