The 7mm PRC is an efficient, capable, and balanced 7mm magnum. It quickly became a favorite for ELR (extreme long-range) shooters and hunters looking for extended range capabilities. The modern design of the 7mm PRC provides several advantages over existing cartridges. It was designed to have inherently accurate chamber geometry, an efficient case shape, and appropriate overall length.

These attributes, coupled with a standard 1:8″ twist rate, mean the 7mm PRC can utilize low-drag bullets without seating them too deeply into the case. This balanced design creates a platform that can efficiently use modern propellants that are temperature stable, produce great accuracy, and provide moderate recoil and reasonable barrel life when compared to overbore 7mm magnums.

The parent case for the 7mm PRC is the 375 Ruger. The case length has been shortened to 2.280″, but retains the same .532″ diameter, non-belted case, and the 30° shoulder that is found on all Precision Rifle Cartridges.

For the target shooter, the 180-grain ELD Match and 190 grain A-Tip will be hard to beat. For hunters, the 160 grain CX and 175 grain ELD-X provide terrific performance at close and extended range.
