    Weatherby Fan builds a lot of pretty nice custom rifles! I am not a fan of the prc line, but I like seeing the data for knowledge sake. I am in final stages of completing my 300 norma, hurry up manners!

    Thanks highdrum,
    If the 300 PRC performs anything like my 6.5 PRC build I’ll be very happy.

    Sounds like a great build! I’ve been a little intrigued by the 300 prc. Not sure I’m ready to pull the trigger yet though. I hope it’s a tack driving hammer!

    It'll definitely be interesting watching as you progress from parts to the finished product to the final product and results.

    Congrats, looking forward to range and hunting field results. I am sure it's going to be a dandy just like the CM family. Rest assured Hornady's marketing hype will drive the naysayers nuts again. OK, who has the stir the pot meme? ;):cool::D

    I would feel like they didn’t care if there wasn’t some criticism of ones choices ;)

    Not that I have heard of yet ?
    But as Canhunter35 mentioned above the cartridge was just introduced 2 months ago.....
    Here’s hoping it won’t be to long in the works !

    Built my 6.5 PRC on a long action and now im thinking i need another barrel in 300 prc and make it a switch barrel. So far I really like my 6.5 prc.

    Not familiar with the PRC...where does it fall as far as reference caliber and what is its selling point
