Mauser has announced that it’s reliable, affordable M18 bolt-action rifle is now available in the new 6.5 PRC caliber with an MSRP of $699.

Recognized for its accuracy and reliability at an exceptional price point, the Mauser M18 is among the first chambered for Hornady’s new 6.5 PRC cartridge. A magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor, the 6.5 PRC 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.

Thanks to its rugged synthetic stock, the M18 will withstand daily use in even the harshest hunting conditions. A three-position safety allows users to safely carry a round in the chamber without fear of the bolt being nudged out of battery. The M18’s 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. A single-stage adjustable trigger allows you to set your own preferred pull weight, and the rifle’s 5-round magazine enables quick, hassle free follow-up shots.

The M18’s stock is nicely shaped in the American style with a straight comb, dual palm swell on the open-radius grip, and fairly slim, forward-tapering fore-end with a touch of tumblehome. Soft-inlay inserts under the fore-end and on the grip subtly and effectively enhance purchase, dry or wet. The 1-inch, black recoil pad snaps in and out of the hollow butt, opening storage space.

In addition to the 6.5 PRC chambering, the Mauser M18 is also available in .243 Win., .308 Win., .270 Win., .30-06 Sprg., 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag. and 6.5 Creedmoor.
