6mm ARC

The 6mm Advanced Rifle Cartarge (ARC) was developed by Hornady at the request of the Department of Defense (DOD). It was designed for the AR 15 Platform as a replacement for both the 5.56 NATO and 7.62 NATO Calibers. Calculating that such a loading would be near the weight and minimal recoil of the lightweight 5.56 while nearer the terminal performance of the heavier 7.62 NATO. The 6mm ARC lends itself to the PRS Gas Gun Series competition as well as Hunting and Target applications.
