Sure if you can find ammo for it...

around here you can't find ANY Ammo for a PRC, of any type..
and I've heard guys complaining that they can't find ammo even on line...

a number of places sure have enough available for purchase on the store racks.. but they aren't moving..

nothing to feed them and evidently you can't even find brass for them...

top 5 cartridge around here seem to be 243, 270, 308, 30/06 and 30/30....

The 130 gr. TSX is my monometal choice for the 6.5x55mm.

Should work even better at a coupla hundred fps faster.

The 127LRX delivered via 6.5 -06 performed well on my largest bull. Have switched to my 30-06 w/ 200 partitions lately as my current spot offers more close up opportunities than far.

200- grain Partition in a 30-06 is good stuff for elk.
