    That's what I expect my improved to be. 99-100 now that I know what the parent is.

    I think the factory 30 Nosler offerings are junk. If the factory 300 PRC will shoot accurately in your chamber I’ll be in. I never thought I’d say this but I’m tired of reloading. I need a few chambers that shoot quality factory ammo. I think Hornady is stepping it up with the factory offerings.

    Time will tell if they shoot accurately or not?

    I have brass ordered from Midway, dies ordered from Whidden, and reamers from JGS. The brass and reamers will be here soon. The dies will be here in Feb. I have a 9 twist Bartlein heavy varmint on the way to Axisworks to spin up and screw on my BAT action. My old barrel has 1600 rounds through it and still shoots bugholes but I need to retire it for the new chamber. My plan is to do some testing in early January and have some info available for the shot show in Vegas. I will be sharing a booth with ADG on Monday and Tuesday in the vendors section. I will have pre order info on my website soon. Get on board early on this one. I can vouch that it is a great performer. 1600 rounds and going strong is appealing as well!

    Rich,
    Is ADG going to make brass for your new baby?

    ADG will have to answer that one. I'll just say I FULLY expect at least one quality manufacturer will make brass before too long. Hornady has a contract for the 300 with the DOD also.

    For you guys that already chambered a 30/375 S.I. in the past, I am offering a free loan of the reamer to clean up your chamber. It could easily be done with a T handle for someone experienced.
    It will chase your lands about .027" too!

    IF YOU'RE GONNA BE A BEAR, MIGHT AS WELL BE A GRIZ!
    Just got some brass in to compare the PRC to the Sherman Improved. Reamers will be here in 2 weeks. 300 prc vs Sherman Imp..jpg

    Man if a 300 PRC S.I. chambered rifle shot well with factory prc ammo and you could reload to S.I. that would be a fantastic setup of great performance and convenience in a pinch.

    I shot this a while back at 880 yards with the S.I.
