312: The Ugly Truth About The 7mm PRC (and what to do about it)


Apple | iHeart | Pandora | Spotify 

Rumors have been swirling about Hornady Precision Hunter factory ammo for the 7mm PRC failing to deliver advertised velocities and a lot of hunters and shooters are understandably upset about the situation. I did some extensive testing at the range last week with multiple 7mm PRC factory loads from both Federal and Hornady. In this episode I share what I learned along with some recommendations for how other hunters can get the most out of the cartridge in light of these issues.
