About the 7mm PRC Cartridge
Hornady states: “The 7mm Precision Rifle Cartridge …delivers long, heavy for caliber bullets in a standard long action. Fitting the niche between the 6.5 PRC and the 300 PRC, the 7mm PRC features temperature-stable, magnum speed propellants for consistent velocity and longer barrel life. Factory rifles are available or simply swap the barrel on your 7mm Rem Mag or 300 Win Mag and reap the benefits of this long-action, centerfire rifle cartridge.”
Hornady 7mm PRC loaded ammunition is currently available in three load types:
7mm PRC 160 gr CX Outfitter
7mm PRC 180 gr ELD Match
7mm PRC 175 gr ELD-X Precision Hunter
“We are honored to receive the Caliber Award for Best New Ammunition,” stated Seth Swerczek, Hornady Communications Manager. “The 7mm PRC was a passion project for us and the success of this cartridge is truly gratifying,” he added.
