Hornady Press Release
(Grand Island, NE) – Based on the beltless 375 Ruger, the 300 and 338 RCM’s are engineered to offer 300 and 338 Win Mag performance, but in a more compact package. A new generation of cartridge design provides unmatched ballistic performance, less felt recoil, longer barrel life, and superior performance at all temperatures, in a package that is well suited to all hunting environments and conditions any hunter may encounter. The 300 RCM is available in 150, 165 and 180-grain SST offerings. Each 300 RCM load exceeds comparative 300 Win Mag loads from a 20" barrel. Muzzle velocities for the 300 RCM are 3,170 fps, 3,030 fps, and 2,900 fps, respectively – from a 20" factory barrel. The 338 RCM is available in the newly developed 200 gr SST, and 225 gr SST offerings. Velocities for the 338 RCMs are 2,850 fps and 2,710 fps respectively, easily out performing the 338 Win Mag at equal barrel length.
