Mossberg has announced that it will be offering the new Hornady 7mm Precision Rifle Cartridge in its Patriot Predator bolt-action rifle series. Designed to outperform existing 7mm cartridges in a standard long-action rifle, the 7mm PRC is a match-grade cartridge that delivers consistent velocity and repeatable accuracy. Two synthetic-stocked models are available with 24-inch barrel length and 1:8-inch twist rate to maximize the performance of the 7mm PRC cartridge.

The Patriot Predator bolt-action is based on Mossberg’s proven twin-lug push-feed machined-steel action, fed from a flush polymer magazine. The free-floating, carbon steel barrel is threaded (⅝”-24 threads per inch) for ease of adding a suppressor or muzzle brake, includes a protective thread cap, has a 11-degree match crown and is fluted.

For the addition of optics, the Patriot Predator is equipped with a receiver mounted Picatinny rail. All Patriot rifles feature Mossberg’s patented LBA (Lightning Bolt Action) user-adjustable trigger with a 2- to 7-pound range of adjustment for consistent shot placement. Rounding out this full-featured rifle is an oversized bolt handle; spiral-fluted bolt; and sling swivel studs.

Stock options include a Flat Dark Earth stock with matte blue metal finish (28170) and TrueTimber Strata camouflaged stock with complementing Patriot Brown Cerakote metal finish (28171). MSRPs range from $519 to $616.
