7MM PRC Brass Overview
7MM PRC Brass: Hornady produces brass with the same precision, attention to detail and focus on perfection that has made them a world leader in bullets. They measure their brass for consistent wall concentricity, tests pressure calibration to ensure uniform case expansion and also hand-inspects each piece.
This dedication to quality ensures proper seating of the bullet both in the case and in the chamber and consistent charges and pressures. The result is optimal velocity and repeatable accuracy from your cartridges. New, unprimed brass. This is not loaded ammunition.
Brass Preparation: With bulk rifle brass you may sometimes notice a few case mouths are “out of round” or slightly dented below the shoulder. These imperfections occur in the final tumbling wash operation after the case mouth has been annealed. Brass manufacturers are aware of the case cosmetics and have worked to mitigate it, but due to equipment design, denting may still occur. Minor dents are normally removed in the first firing and will not affect case life or performance. On non-plated brass, you may also notice all the anneal stain might not be polished off, which may give the case neck a pinkish color. With some smaller caliber cases you may notice the case mouths to be slightly belled.
With all new rifle brass, you should first straighten out the case and case mouth, then chamfer and debur the case mouth inside and out. To straighten the case mouth, run the case part way into the sizer die and let the expander ball straighten the brass. To prevent the case neck from stretching, be sure to lubricate the case neck inside the case mouth.

FAQ On 7MM PRC Brass
“The 7mm PRC handles the heavy-for-caliber bullets in the 7mm bore diameter better than the vast majority of other cartridges, especially when using bullets designed for long-range shooting.” “Think of the 7mm PRC like a running back — powerful, efficient and capable of doing many jobs on the field.”
- What is 7mm PRC comparable to?
Felt recoil will vary from shooter to shooter and rifle to rifle, but free recoil energy is still a useful way to compare cartridges. Not surprisingly, the 7mm PRC fits neatly in between the 6.5 PRC and 300 PRC in terms of recoil.
- Who is making 7mm PRC brass?
I’m talking about the new 7mm Precision Rifle Cartridge, or PRC, from Hornady, the folks who have introduced more innovative cartridges over the last two decades than any other ammunition manufacturer.
- What is the effective range of a 7mm PRC?
Effective range for long range precision shooting
The 7mm PRC performs great at long-range work, grouping sub-MOA out to 1,000 yards and also capable of ringing steel at one mile. The trajectory and ballistics are perhaps most impressive around 400 to 600 yards when compared to other magnum cartridges.
- Is the 7mm PRC worth it?
Not only will the 175- to 190-grain bullets have better BCs than the heavy end of the . 30-caliber spectrum, the 7mm PRC pushes bullets faster with about 30-percent less recoil. The Tundra rifle I used for testing only weighed about 7 pounds. I was never uncomfortable while shooting it.
FAQ On Hornady Brass
Hornady brass is one of the most popular brands of brass on the market today. Hornady produces brass with the same precision, attention to detail. And focus on perfection that has made them a world leader in bullets and other reloading supplies(load development ).
- Is Hornady brass worth reloading?
It’s not the best. I’m averaging 5 to 6 load cycles with Hornady brass out of my . 204 Ruger (27.2 g Varget charge). Much better longevity out of stock Remington brass and I’ve got some Norma on order.
- Is Norma brass better than Hornady?
I thought there would be a difference in the load due to case capacity, but I was surprised how much. Hornady brass had avg fps of 2850 while Norma had fps of 2900 and showed some slight signs of pressure. Both were once fired brass from factory rounds shot in my gun and then shoulder bumped.
- Is Hornady ammo brass?
Most Hornady ammunition is loaded in Hornady manufactured cases. We carefully manufacture our brass cases for reliable feeding, corrosion resistance, proper hardness and also the ability to withstand maximum chamber pressures.
- Does brass ammo go bad?
Brass is a reactive metal. If exposed to moisture or high humidity, it can corrode, and the corrosion can impact the powder which, in turn, may cause the round to behave differently. Corrosive ammunition could perform poorly, fire with lower velocity, or it may not fire at all. Decreased Shelf Life.
