Hornady announced the full manufacturer of their new 300 PRC round which is designed to utilize long, heavy bullets and push them to maximum performance.
Hornady Based the new 300 PRC round on the 375 Ruger Cartridge case.
The 300 PRC is non-belted and uses a standard .532 inch magnum bolt face.
The reason for the bolt face diameter is it has yielded better chamber alignment than standard belted magnum cartridges.
This also allows for improved stacking and feeding from fixed magazines.
Hornady states “The 300 PRC cartridge and chamber were designed concurrently combining to provide excellent alignment and highly tuned performance.
The cartridge case is designed to use common, temperature stable, magnum speed rifle powders producing extremely consistent velocity and increased barrel life compared to currently available magnum cartridges.”
