I don't know the answer either.
Here is what Hornady has to say about their 300 PRC.
they have a good sales pitch for the hunter but failed to mention how it would work in poor conditions and with NATO approved bullets Not match or hunting bullets.
Just though it was typical of a manufacture to come up with the "Best"
to impress the masses. After seeing this VIDEO everyone will rush out and buy one thinking it will be the golden cartridge that will automatically assure sub 1/2 moa accuracy.

Hype is what they do best... That's what I've been saying.
What does this PRC stand for?
Precision Rifle Cartridge
Persistently Repetitive Crap
Posthumously Reincarnated Cartridge
Previously Renamed Cartridge
Great points. Poor conditions and approved bullets definitely question mark.
I like the cartridge. I just think it's funny how much hype is applied. The 30-375 has been around awhile and nothing wrong with more offerings I suppose but treating this as the second coming of Christ gets old. Should be close to the 30 nosler I would think. But it is far from the "best" imo
Other 30's will still outrun it for sure
Hornady's marketing team is the envy for most company that is failing ... actually the key to their marketing strategy is their collaboration/partnership with other companies. Like it or not it is a success that they are enjoying ... and it did not happen overnight.
I wonder what projectile the newer round will be loaded with? Has been Sierra for decades. An ELD-M in a heavy flavor would be great (since it’s a “match” bullet & Hornady’s design) or a 215 Berger “target”...even better!
Maybe something entirely new. I wouldn’t doubt it if they came out with a new so called “green” bullet, like our EPR (aka A1). Maybe a Hornady GMX on steroids. Oh good grief I hope not, they have a special way of screwing things up. You never know with these jokers.
So where did you read this? I read 2 articles about it and they both said 300 norma mag 308win and 338lm. Not being rude thats just what i saw
Yep just went back and looked. 300 norma mag for this $50m contract.
The DOD recently ordered some of these rifles in 300prc though
What always facinated me was how a gun they advertised to be 2 MOA was hitting people 15” wide at 1500 yards.
I had one. 2 moa was on a very good day when the Gods smiled. 3 MOA more realistic. So I sold it and bought a Barret single shot. Figure a monkey could build a single shot to shoot. Sold that. Barret should hire some monkeys. Great marketing. Great lobying. Great Hard Target Interdiction gun. A surgical weapon. Not. I regularly shoot against a guy with a MRad. He’s got all the barrels. My Surgeon dings the 8” and 4” steel at 1000. I have yet to see him hit one. There are a bunch of guys who buy that STUFF cause its cool. Have never seen one at a preecision or a F class type shoot. Know why?
You should borrow his mrad and show him how it’s done
That makes sense
