Federal Expands Gold Medal Berger Line with 6.5 PRC

Long-range calibers have come a long way in only a few years. Federal Premium has been there since the beginning to provide shooters with the rounds they need to reach out. With precision rifle shooting competitions growing in popularity, the demand for faster, flatter-shooting calibers has led to even more efficient cartridges. The most recent example of this, the 6.5 PRC, has just been added to Federal Premium’s Gold Medal Berger line of rifle ammunition.
