About two years ago, Hornady introduced the 6mm ARC round to the world. The new round was designed to provide a low recoiling round with amazing accuracy while staying within an AR-15 platform. During that time Hornady had initial product support from varies companies. Overtime, more and more companies have released dedicated rifles for the round, most recently Stag Arms with the Covenant rifles. Yesterday, Wilson combat announced the release the new Wilson Combat Tactical 6mm ARC rifle series.
The new Tactical 6mm ARC rifles by Wilson will come in two different configurations: Recon Tactical and Tactical Hunter. Both rifles are going to be sporting the same features such as: a match grade 18″ fluted barrel, 15″ Wilson Combat M-Lol Rail, and a Wilson Combat Trigger. The main difference is that the Tactical Hunter variant is 6 oz lighter than the Tactical Recon variant.
Below, is the product description from Wilson Combat on the new 6mm ARC Tactical Series.
The 6mm ARC was designed by Hornady to be the highest performance long-range cartridge available in a standard AR platform rifle. Initially tested and fielded by US Special Operations forces, the 6mm ARC utilizes efficient, high-BC bullets to deliver unprecedented long-range performance with a wide variety of available bullets. Commercial 6mm ARC loads feature bullets selected to deliver ideal performance for hunting, match shooting, and personal protection applications. The 6mm ARC uses commonly available 6.5 Grendel magazines/bolts.
Wilson Combat will offer WC-15 rifles with our match-grade, 18” fluted/threaded Tactical Hunter barrel (Tactical Hunter Model) and our 18” fluted/threaded Recon barrel (Recon model). All barrels will be rifled with a 1-7.5” twist.
