Hornady has announced it has been awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract for its 300 PRC ammunition.
The 300 Precision Rifle Cartridge (PRC), released by Hornady in October 2018, was tested and selected by the Department of Defense for its extended long-range sniper program following a rigorous evaluation process that saw the new 300 PRC outperform the 300 Norma Mag as well as several other cartridges in testing past 2,000 yards.
“We’re thrilled to be able to do our part to support our military members by providing a superior cartridge that will enhance their capabilities on the battlefield,” said Scott Javins, Hornady Law Enforcement & Military Product Manager. “Over a 10-year development process, we packed all of our knowledge and experience into designing the 300 PRC as a cartridge that will not only win matches and bring home that trophy elk, but also meet the needs of the best-of-the-best within the Department of Defense. This contract confirms that we’ve met or exceeded their requirements for a new small arms ammunition solution for extended range engagements 300 prc ammo
Starting with the 375 Ruger cartridge case, Hornady built the 300 PRC from the ground up to launch long, heavy-for-caliber, aerodynamic bullets over long distances. Designed for maximum efficiency with common, temperature-stable, magnum-speed rifle powders, the 300 PRC delivers the highest levels of accuracy and aerodynamic performance.
The 300 PRC is commercially available in the Hornady Match line with 225-gr. ELD bullets and the Precision Hunter line with 212 gr. ELD-X bullets. Both options feature the Heat Shield® tip, which resists drag inducing bullet tip deformation from aerodynamic heating.
The U.S. Department of Defense has also awarded a contract to Barrett Firearms Manufacturing to provide an undisclosed number of MRAD rifle systems chambered in the Hornady 300 PRC caliber.
WARNING: To purchase ammunition, you must be 21 or older. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to comply with all state and local laws concerning ammunition purchase and possession.

Gunwork’s ammunition is designed to yield top performance at long range. The VLD or BTHP design bullet has become very popular for long range hunting due to its unique terminal performance characteristics. The small me plat and copper nose exhibit a delayed expansion reaction allowing the bullet to penetrate several inches before expanding. With a simple copper jacket and lead core, once the bullet starts expanding, it really comes apart, creating massive wound cavities and devastating performance.
From bullets to powder and primers, every component and specification has been carefully selected to provide the ultimate performance for long range hunting ammunition. It is hand loaded one cartridge at a time with meticulous inspection and quality control. With a proper understanding of external and internal ballistics, our engineers have been able to increase downrange performance for all cartridges while keeping recoil at a minimum.
This ammo is designed specifically for Gunwork’s rifles; however, it can perform very well in other rifles. Our ammo is loaded longer than most factory ammo, meaning cartridges may not fit in some factory box magazines. See COAL measurement to confirm fit with your rifle.
