Preferred Barrel Blanks brings you our first demonstration video to show the type of performance we expect from our rifle barrels.

Even when using factory made ammunition we expect great consistency and low velocity spreads, made possible from our extremely tight tolerances in bore diameter. This barrel is installed on a Uintah Precision UPR-10 which is a bolt action AR-10 upper. This particular upper is a prototype proof of concept for using short action magnums which is why we are able to chamber it in 6.5 PRC. In the video we shoot two types of ammunition, hand loaded 120g Nosler ballistic tips that Dylan uses for hunting deer out to distances of 600 yards. The second type of ammunition is Hornady 6.5 PRC match loaded with 147g ELD-M Bullets.

The spiral fluting on our barrel adds tons of style while reducing weight. The barrel has also been threaded 5/8x24 to accept muzzle devices or direct thread silencers like we used in the video.

  • 6.5 PRC AR-10
  • Installed on Uintah Precision UPR-10
  • Ammo 1: Hand loaded 120g Nosler ballistic tips
  • Ammo 2: Hornady 6.5 PRC match loaded w/147g ELD-M
  • Threaded 5/8x24
The 6.5 PRC is a great performer and even with factory ammo it held a predictable group to get us on target beyond 1 mile while the 120 Nosler Bullets had no trouble swinging our hostage target with ease at 480 yards.
