Description Technical Info

Hornady Precision Hunter - 300 PRC - 212gr - ELD-X - 82166 :

The 300 PRC is an intelligently crafted 21st century magnum cartridge specifically designed to take advantage of long, heavy for caliber bullets capable of delivering the highest levels of accuracy and aerodynamic performance.

Based on the 375 Ruger cartridge case, the 300 PRC is non-belted and uses a standard .532 inch magnum bolt face and headspaces off the 30 degree shoulder. This results in better chamber alignment than standard belted magnum cartridges and allows for improved stacking and feeding from fixed magazines.

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.

Featuring the radically superior ELD-X bullet with Heat Shield tip, Precision Hunter is the ideal load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges. With high velocity, 0-400 yard impact, the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high InterLock ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50-60 percent weight retention. Upon low velocity, 400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting controlled expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90 percent retained weight, the bullet provides deep penetration and large cavities.

Features & Design

  • The Heat Shield tip creates the perfect meplat and outperforms BTHP bullets
  • loaded with the most accurate, consistent match bullets in the world
  • Cases are carefully selected based on strict criteria
  • Powder is matched carefully to each specific load for optimal pressure
  • Extremely tight tolerances and strict quality control

300 PRC

When it comes to hunting inside 400 yards, the 300 PRC does nothing more and nothing less than the long list of existing 30 caliber magnums. It is past that 400 yard mark where it begins to shine. Designed specifically for ELR (extra long range) use, the .300 PRC is optimized for shooting way, way out there. It is engineered to provide inherent accuracy and to offer ideal performance with heavy, aerodynamic projectiles that shrug off wind and maintain velocity better than common .308-diameter bullets..

Suggested Use

  • Target
  • Deer (long range)
  • Black Bear (long range)
  • Sheep / Goat (long range)
  • Moose
