300 PRC Ammo

When Hornady sought to develop a better cartridge which they could use to test long, aerodynamic, and heavy bullets at 1,000 yards with a heavy benchrest rifle, they started from the ground up by necking down a 375 Ruger Compact Magnum casing to a 30 Caliber Magnum. In spite of the relative ubiquity of 30 Caliber Magnum ammunition, they found that their invention, which they dubbed the 300 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge), excelled for its ability to seat its projectile farther from its casing’s body, providing a throat length that enabled it to accommodate a diverse array of bullets. The 300 PRC’s other merits, including its ability to produce uniform chamber pressure and ensure temperature stability, outclassed all other factory-made 30 Caliber Magnum cartridges that preceded it. Hornady justly concluded that they were on to something big.

It wasn’t just Hornady who recognized the 300 PRC’s great utility. Shortly after the Nebraskan manufacturer introduced the 300 PRC in 2018, the United States Department of Defense awarded them with a contract for an undisclosed quantity of the round, after having recognized it as superior to the 300 Norma Magnum. Whether you would use this powerful and accurate cartridge to hit targets from a mile away or during your next hunt, you are likewise certain to find an incredible amount of value in it.

The 300 PRC is a non-rebated and non-belted cartridge which uses a standard 532 Magnum bolt face. It is available from its manufacturer with either their ELD or ELD-X projectile, both of which feature the Heat Shield tip which is immune to the effects of aerodynamic heating.
