The new 6mm ARC cartridge was designed for the U.S. DoD Multipurpose Combat Rifle program. It's a middle point between a .223 Rem in the AR15 platform and a .308 Win in the AR10 platform. The goal of the 6mm ARC is to offer a high-BC projectile in the AR15 platform. Depending on rifle specifics/setup, the end result is approximately 50% less recoil and 30% less weight than .308 Win, with an increase in magazine capacity. 



Achieves results never before delivered from the AR-15 platform with the ultimate blend of system weight, performance and shootability.


Equally at home in AR-15 platforms and short or micro action bolt guns and suitable for applications from personal defense to match shooting and hunting.


Balanced application of cartridge, chamber and propellant design coupled with bullet selection for optimum all-range performance and barrel life.


Excellent terminal performance from an assortment of bullets for a variety of applications.
