I see the 6mm arc as another form of fitting the ar15 platform.
Was wondering if there is any advantage over the .243 to 500 yds or if it is designed for primarily heavy bullets

I guess if less speed and lower recoil are sought the ARC will be advantageous. The plus is a light AR15 platform but I have other 6 MM AR cartridges that I would pick first.

The 6 ARC will use less powder than 243 and can be used in mini action bolt rifles like the Howa, Cz 527 and Ruger Predator. The barrel twist of the usual 243 Winchester doesn’t work well with the high ballistic coefficient bullets like the 108 grain ELD-M.

The 6 ARC should have longer barrel life compared to 6 Creedmoor but will still be able to reach 1000 yards in a handy package. The 6 ARC might prove popular as a hunting cartridge as it would work for varmints to medium game.

I do non compare this to the 243 or 6mm rem. I compare the 6mm ARC to the 6ppc as I often longed po put a 6ppc together Only thing is I wanted a faster twist rate for longer heavier bullets.

Hope CZ steps up to the plate sooner rather than later. OK enough of my wish list. Ill guess I may plan for a lot of years B4 the CZ comes to fruitition.

Unless Drop in barrel comes in to play.

Agree completely. The inherent accuracy of the PPC case I hope runs over into the 6ARC.

I myself think it has been a long time coming of a 6mm case smaller than a 243. Buddy and I just put together a 6TCU rifle for me last year. I almost went with the 6mmNosler, but have worked with the 6-223 and 6TCU enough that I didn’t want a new project.

I would like to see a 17,19 or a 20 factory offering of the ARC.

These PRS shooters think the 6mmARC has a competative advantage over the 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmore past 600-700 yards primarily due to less recoil and being better able to spot your own misses so you can make a quick correction for a follow up shot in competition (generally 2 shots per target). No advantage for the first shot which is all that matters for hunting.

The primary selling point of the 6mmARC is that it fits in an AR 15 for medium range hunting and 1000 range performance on paper/steel. But PRS shooters (all shooters) are seriously disadvantaged with an AR at distance.
