B&T APR: Now in 8.6 BLK

Something bigger this way comes from B&T USA. The company is known for its family of well-made guns and accessories, and its Advanced Precision Rifle (APR) line is understandably popular. The APR line now includes a rifle chambered in 8.6 BLK, a round with substantial potential and proven performance both on game animals and targets.

According to B&T USA, the APR in 8.6 BLK is designed as a specialized tool for specific applications, but it can also be used for a variety of things. The gun maker states this rifle can push a 300-grain projectile out to 400 yards, precisely, and apparently quietly. This rifle has an integrated suppressor, so every shot fired is suppressed for the quietest performance possible.

Controls are listed as being intuitive while ergonomics are sophisticated and both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional. B&T USA states the APR in 8.6 BLK is made for intermediate barrier penetration at ranges beyond the normal, meaning not close quarters.
