About three years ago, Hornady released the 6mm ARC to excitement and curiosity mixed with a bit of skepticism from the community. 6mm ARC was marketed as the next evolution in high-performance ammunition that performed well out to distance from an AR-15 platform. The 6mm ARC offered better performance and range than the .224 Valkyrie, which was released a few years before. Since its release, 6mm ARC has gained traction in the designated marksman/precision shooting community. HOWA proudly releases their new Action Mini Rifles chambered in 6mm ARC. HOWA will have different models allowing shooters to find the rifle to fit their needs.

Below is the press announcement from HOWA on the release of the HOWA Mini Action rifles.

Press Announcement

Legacy Sports International is excited to announce the popular 6MM ARC caliber is now shipping in the HOWA Mini Action Series of rifles. That’s right, the already popular HOWA Mini Actions just got even more attractive with this potent addition of the 6MM ARC in both 22” std. barrels and 20” light varmint barrels which are both threaded for easy suppressor additions and fit into a variety of stock options from Legacy Sports. Excellent Coyote Cartridge!

The 6mm ARC delivers substantially better ballistics than the 5.56 NATO with similar recoil and yet delivers comparable ballistics to the venerable 308 Winchester with 30% less weight on both firearms platform and ammunition.
