Franchi Adds New Chamberings and Camo Options to Momentum Elite Rifle Series

The Momentum Elite, Franchi’s premium-grade big-game hunting rifle, receives new chamber and camo pattern combinations for 2022.

Since its debut in 2020, the Momentum Elite has earned a solid reputation for its precision construction and numerous features that savvy big-game hunters appreciate in a dedicated hunting rifle. This year, Franchi expands the Momentum Elite portfolio with new color options for the .350 Legend and 6.5 PRC caliber rifles.

The .350 Legend is the latest entry in the growing straight-wall centerfire cartridge category. This cartridge was developed to satisfy the needs of hunters in states and locations with restrictions on conventional centerfire rifle ammunition. Now, fans of the up-and-coming .350 Legend can enjoy this exciting cartridge in the Momentum Elite bolt-action sporting a TruTimber Strata camo stock and Cerakote Midnight Bronze barrel color configuration.

Bringing to field incredible velocity, reduced recoil, and reliable, way-out-there accuracy potential, the 6.5 PRC has quickly risen to the forefront of the long-range shooting and hunting set. Previously offered in Realtree EXCAPE with Burnt Bronze Cerakote and TruTimber Strata with Midnight Bronze Cerakote, the Momentum Elite in 6.5 PRC is now available in OPTIFADE Elevated II camo with a Cobalt Cerakote barreled action.


All touchpoints of the Momentum Elite speak to the rifle’s mission in delivering premium performance for the demanding big-game hunter. The coldhammer-forged free-floated barrel with muzzle brake is mated to the precision-machined DEPENDA Bolt action system featuring a spiral-fluted, 60-degree three-lug bolt. Franchi added a single-stage adjustable RELIA trigger and intelligently designed Evolved Ergonom-X stock. The result is a rifle platform built to the needs of the experienced hunter. Add in Franchi’s 1-MOA guarantee, and it’s easy to see why the Momentum Elite stands tall in the increasingly crowded hunting rifle field.
