San Antonio, Texas -- J. P. Sauer & Sohn, Germany's oldest gunmaker, is now shipping all versions of its SAUER S100 bolt-action rifle in a 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) chambering with prices starting at $799.
SAUER is the first to offer a mass production rifle chambered for this popular new Hornady cartridge which is rapidly gaining a following for its accuracy, flat trajectory, and long-range performance. 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 1000 yards, the 6.5 PRC is an excellent caliber for F-Class benchrest shooting and hunting medium to large game.
"We are delighted that SAUER, a highly respected German gunmaker that has been producing guns for over 267 years, has worked with Hornady to chamber a rifle in 6.5 PRC," said Steve Hornady, President of Hornady Manufacturing Company. "SAUER is the first European manufacturer to work with us to have a rifle chambered in a new caliber Hornady has developed at launch. This is a proud step for both companies."
"With a starting price of $799, the SAUER S100 is hands down the best value on the market today for a rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC," said Christian Socher, CEO of Blaser USA. "The SAUER 100 is designed for accuracy, delivering a guaranteed five-shot sub-MOA performance, and we are excited to offer this line in the new Hornady 6.5 PRC chambering."
Distributed by Blaser USA Inc., the SAUER 100 rifles are perfect for those who have a limited budget yet still expect maximum performance and style. The extended line of SAUER S100 rifles gives shooters numerous options to meet their needs in the field and on the range. Each rifle features a crisp, user adjustable single-stage trigger, three-position safety, cold hammer-forged SAUER barrel, and smooth action bolt.
