A beltless non-rebated .30-caliber magnum rifle cartridge designed for extreme performance at long range, the .300 PRC is the product of years of tinkering by Hornady. It will handle almost any game in North America and is fully capable of doing double duty as a long-range target choice.
Grand old cartridges like the .30-06 Sprg. and the .270 Win. still kill game just as well as they ever have, but many of the new cartridges out-perform them, especially at extended ranges. Here are a few reasons why.
The Hornady .300 PRC is part of a paradigm shift in centerfire-cartridge design, one brought about by an increasingly improved understanding of internal and external ballistics, and the use of Doppler radar. As a .30-caliber magnum it is not only capable of killing big game, but also other .30-caliber magnums.
