Mauser 18 Now Available in 6.5 PRC

The Mauser 18 bolt-action rifle is now available in a 6.5 PRC chambering with prices starting at $699.

This hunting rifle is among the first chambered for Hornady’s new 6.5 PRC cartridge. The 6.5 PRC is a magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor and has a flatter trajectory and higher impact velocity than the 6.5 Creedmoor. Utilizing moderate powder charges that result in repeatable accuracy, low recoil and high velocities with performance well beyond 1,000 yards, the 6.5 PRC is an excellent caliber for F-Class benchrest shooting and hunting medium to large game.

“The Mauser 18 is a big seller here in the United States because of its ultimate reliability, durability and accuracy at an unbeatable price point,” said Christian Socher, CEO of Blaser USA. "We wanted to add the 6.5 PRC chambering as an additional caliber option for those who hunt and shoot at longer ranges.”

Thanks to its rugged synthetic stock, the Mauser 18 will withstand daily use in even the harshest hunting environments. A three-position safety allows you to safely carry a round in the chamber without fear of the bolt being nudged out of battery. The steel receiver provides core strength and reliability to protect the action, and a cold-hammer-forged barrel gives further peace of mind that the rifle will perform consistently, round after round.

For optimum grip, the stock features two areas of soft-inlay. The five-round magazine enables fast, fuss-free follow-up shots, and an adjustable trigger allows you to set your own preferred pull weight. Clean lines and high-quality materials result in a premium appearance, so that overall, the Mauser 18 has the look and feel of a rifle twice its price.


In addition to the 6.5 PRC chambering, the Mauser 18 is also available in .243 Win, .308 Win, .270 Win, .30-06, 7mm Rem Mag, .300 Win Mag and 6.5 Creedmoor.
