Yesterday, Australian Defence Contractor NIOA fully acquired Barrett Firearms. Barrett was founded back in 1982 by Ronnie Barrett, inventor of the Barrett .50 Cal anti-material rifle. Over the proceeding decades, the Barrett anti-material rifle and .50 BMG have become synonymous in the firearms industry. Barrett also created the highly adaptable and modular MRAD rifle. Barrett has continued to innovate and be a leader in the precision rifle market. Barrett rifles are trusted and used by militaries, law enforcement, and civilians around the globe.
Over the years in the firearms market the move hasn’t been towards innovation in certain aspects but, refinement of the AR-15 platform and its cartridges. Seeking to optimize the platform. With this refinement of the platform it has turned the AR-15 from a Whiskey with full body and nice finish to a Whiskey with a full body, subtle notes of flavor with a smooth finish. Hornady looks to take advantage of these refinements by wrapping them all up in their new 6mm ARC (Advance Rifle Cartridge) round.
