In summary, 7 PRC shoots long, heavy for caliber bullets with really high BC’s at velocities that enable it to be a great long range cartridge. Not to mention Hornady made the chamber with tighter tolerances than all the other factory 7s to aid in general accuracy. In addition, if achieves these ballistics without being massively over bore with recoil and poor barrel life.Why would I do that?
Obviously many people believe that 15/7,000ths of a pound difference is meaningful.
Just like all the overlap in cartridges. What does the 6.5 CM do that the 6.5 Swede doesn’t?
Answer: sell more rifles.
And in the case of the 7 PRC, what does it do that the plethora of 7mm cartridges already in existence not do?
Same answer as above.
I’ll stick with what I have but I hope gun/ammo/component manufacturers make a ton of money.
And you didn’t answer the original question.
For someone getting into a 7mm cartridge, 7 PRC is the way of the future. If you already have one and only hunt to say 4-500 yards, it won’t gain you much.
