ditto above for Hornady 250gr A-tip, Hornady claims they are more tolerant of twist rate I'm working with the Sierra 230gr pointed Matchking #2251, Sierra recommends 1/8". I selected a 1/8" for my 300PRC, the 230gr MK did very well out to 1774 yds, only 17mils elevation with avg 2837 fps at muzzle.What twist to best stabilize 220-250 grain bullets?
That ought to be an interesting set up lol
Email Redding. They will recommend one or two dealers to order through. Contact the dealers and tell them what you are wanting to do. They will order the dies and hold them for you.Hi, new to the forum & interested in the .300 PRC! I will be in the US in November and want to pick up a Redding Die Set. I have found the "77776 Redding CUSTOM Type-S FL Bushing Size Die 300 PRC", but I cannot find a seating die with micrometer. According to Redding it is released, it's called the 300 prc competition seater die part #55776. But I can't find this anywhere (including the imho horrendous Redding website)...
I was doing my own version in 2009 by sizing a 375 Ruger case with a 300 RCM die. My goal then, was to utilize the space that the belt wastes. A divorce prevented me from ever finishing mine, and I give up messing with rifles all together. Just started getting back into it this year, I was pleasantly surprised when I seen the .300 PRC for the first time. My first thought was "at least an ice queen didn't ruin someone's plans" lolThis is a 65mm case, long action the 6.5 PRC is, ostensibly, a short action cartridge.
This is basically the 7LRM, but in .30 cal. This is what the new sniper rifles SHOULD have been chambered in, instead of .300 WM (approx 5 grains more capacity in the same envelope).
More ass than the .300 WM, less than the ultra-mags and Nosler offerings. Same .532 boltface as standard magnums just no retarded belt.
Am I understanding this correctly? It's a 1:10 at the throat and progresses to a 1:6 towards the muzzle?
I'd like to see Berger load 300 PRC but I won't hold my breath. The Berger 338 LM with the 300 grain OTM is a very good value. I'm seeing SDs less than 10. The Hornady ELDMs in 300 PRC are running SDs around 18 or 19.
You want the 3.850 length magazines (COAL 3.78ish) for 300WM, which both MDT and Accurate make. Alternatively you can get 3.850 338LM magazines and a feedlip adjustment tool.Question all, I’ve read this entire thread but still don’t feel super confident. I’m gonna have a stock inletted with DBM for 300 PRC.
Will be shooting the factory 225 Eldm.
Do I need 3.775 or 3.850 DBM? And what magazine? Thanks in advance.
Thank you so much. As far as the bottom metal just make sure it’s CIP? What’s a good brand to use for Remington 700? Badger seems out stock. What’s my next best options.You want the 3.850 length magazines (COAL 3.78ish) for 300WM, which both MDT and Accurate make.

That may be good ammo but it uses Hornady brass and is $127 a box. The Berger 338LMs are $83 a box, use Lapua brass and are very consistent for factory ammo. The Hornady ELDM isn't bad - ~$40 a box, SDs run between 15 and 20. Handloading is the best option but I am not ready yet, too much life going on. I'll get it together this winter.
I bought the hydro die to form 8x68S (the die on the left with the water bottle) and the custom die because I'm having consistency issues with the Hornady die I've been using.About to buy that same set , what bushings did you get ?
Just loaded up a 230 OTM on the left, coal of 2.630 and a 230 SMK on the right with a coal of 2.750. They look like sewing needlesI went the 300 PRC improved by rich Sherman route. It’s been talked about earlier but just got time to do a ladder with the 215 Berger’s. No pressure at 3100fps using H1000
