Savage has chambered several rifles in the hot new long-range caliber, .300 PRC, which are built for hunters and steel-ringers alike.
“The .300 PRC has opened up new possibilities for extreme long range shooting,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said. “There’s no better platform for the round than a Savage. With their AccuTriggers and AccuStocks, Savage rifles offer the rugged stability needed for reliable accuracy at any distance.”
While .300 PRC is capable of exceptional accuracy, the round is not simply a paper-puncher, the company says, adding that Hornady’s .300 PRC quickly rose to the top when the Department of Defense began looking for a new long-range sniper round that produced consistent results with lighter recoil and less muzzle flash than current cartridges in use.
“The true potential of the .300 PRC comes from the intentional pairing of heavy .30 caliber bullets with non-belted cases and temperature-stable powders,” Savage says. “The 300 PRC’s projectiles achieve repeatable accuracy thanks to their high ballistic coefficients. The 30-degree shoulder of the case provides stable chamber alignment, while the non-belted cases stack efficiently and feed reliably from magazines. The combination allows for fast follow-up shots.”
“When these attributes are combined with Savage’s thread-in headspacing, floating bolt head, and button rifled barrels, the 300 PRC achieves astounding accuracy. With the stability of AccuStock and the precision of Savage’s AccuTrigger, the round’s potential is fully realized.”
