For those not familiar with the RPR series of rifles, some key features set the Ruger apart from most factory bolt guns. A full list of features and product specifications can be found on Ruger’s website.
Most notable of the features on the RPR is the adjustable folding stock. The factory stock features both adjustable length of pull and comb height. Located on the bottom of the stock is a Picatinny rail should you decide to mount a rear monopod.
This flat surface also aids in making precise shots while using a rear shooting bag or rest. The stock assembly mounts to an AR-15 style castle nut for easy end-user customization. Inside the rear of the bolt assembly is an Allen wrench for trigger adjustments. This makes for quick and easy adjustments in the field and is the right blend of form and function. Trigger adjustments are easy to make and don’t require any additional takedown of the weapon. Simply insert the wrench into the slot seen above, and turn left to decrease the trigger pull weight or right to increase it. The RPR magnum ships with two five-round AI-style steel magazines. You’ll notice the magazines are stamped .300 Winchester Magnum. This is because .300 PRC uses the same standard .532” magnum bolt face and shares similar case dimensions.
Using .375 Ruger as the parent case, the .300 PRC is designed to take advantage of long and heavy 30 caliber projectiles. The PRC uses a combination of high ballistic coefficient projectiles and a 30-degree case shoulder. These together are used to create the right blend of velocity and accuracy.
Hornady’s new cartridge looks to bridge the gap in between legacy calibers like .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum. The 225-grain ELD-Match ammo leaves the barrel at 2,810 FPS with a staggering 3,945 ft/lb of muzzle energy.
