New Wilson Combat Tactical 6mm ARC Rifles Now AvailableThe Firearm Blog

About two years ago, Hornady introduces the new 6mm ARC (Advanced Rifle Cartridge). 6mm ARC was designed to be a low recoil high accuracy cartridge that would still fit within the confines of the AR-15 platform. Since then, various companies have put their own dedicated offerings into the market and today the new Wilson Combat Tactical 6mm ARC rifle series has been introduced. This new rifle will come in two different configurations and feature several different camouflage patterns for each configuration.

The 6mm ARC was designed by Hornady to be the highest performance long-range cartridge available in a standard AR platform rifle. Initially tested and fielded by US Special Operations forces, the 6mm ARC utilizes efficient, high-BC bullets to deliver unprecedented long-range performance with a wide variety of available bullets. Commercial 6mm ARC loads feature bullets selected to deliver ideal performance for hunting, match shooting, and personal protection applications. The 6mm ARC uses commonly available 6.5 Grendel magazines/bolts.

The new WC-15 rifles will both feature match grade 18″ fluted barrels with a 1-7.5″ twist rate. Where each of these rifles differs is in its weight and a few small features. The Wilson Combat Tactical Hunter model will be 6-ounces lighter than the Tactical Rifle due to its lighter weight billet upper and lower receivers as well as its Tactical Hunter Match Grade barrel which features a threaded muzzle with a thread protector. The Tactical Rifle model will feature a Tactical Match Grade barrel and durable billet upper and lower receivers. Both rifles will also feature the Wilson Combat TTU (Tactical Trigger Unit) pre-installed.

Both rifles are available now to order directly from the Wilson Combat shop. The Wilson Combat Tactical Rifle retails for $2,525 while the Tactical Hunter model costs $2,625. I’d like to hear your thoughts on these two new offerings from Wilson Combat. Do you use the 6mm ARC cartridge? If so how are you enjoying it so far? Let us know down in the comments!
