Further comparison shows that is flies faster than either of the 3 other rounds, and only the 270 Win beats it in terms of average power, but the 7mm is the victor in the average energy as well having 3106 lbs of force from muzzle.

The following is a 500 yard 7mm Rem Magnum ballistic chart that was created using our free online ballistic calculator and details all aspects of the bullets trajectory from the millisecond it leaves the barrel until the time it reaches the 500 yd mark. Wind Drift diagram showing how the forces act on a bullet. We've measured the reference system to be on the order of eight inches at 1000 yards, but because of its exponential dependency on time of flight the 1500 yard drift could be as much as five feet! Re#26 69 grs pushes a 162 gr A- max 3225 fps. And were you making your own brass or using RCC machined brass? I feel it will offer the best velocity in a shorter barrel. Hey C3, Aren't Bases for long range higher in the rear as to give better muzzle elevation to scope alignment? Sounded like your load data charts for the 7mm PRC were all done with 24 test barrel. Thanks again for the info. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Jim Harmer is a host of the Backfire Youtube channel. Select Your Gun Type.

Flat nosed pistol bullet on the left, .308 Cal 168 grain Barnes TSX center, VLD shaped 7mm 168 grain far right.But it doesn't take a huge difference in bullet shape to have a big effect when we are comparing velocities over 1000 yards. Depending on bullet type and construction, the minimum expansion velocity for rifles falls between about 1300 and 2000 fps. Awesome article and information. Basically, like a wind vane on a roof or windmill, the bullet will align itself with the prevalent wind. We analyzed 6 different loads for each cartridge (the proper way to read that sentence is Jim sat at a computer for WEEKS putting data into very complicated Excel sheets) to come out with an average of what several common loads for each cartridge will accomplish. If you check Hornadys load data it shows N560 for every bullet except the 190. Factory Savage 7mm rem mag 1000 yard video. I think all the powders you have tried except H4831SC are too slow.

So please keep letting us know how it works for you. In fact, Aaron Davidson, CEO of Gunwerks, jokingly said that the new 7PRC is the 7LRM. personally I like the 338 luapa and the 6.5 creed, reasonable to shoot compared to a 50 bmg and they will get you out there where you want to be and dont skip on the glass , high quality glass and big power isnt cheap either.

Be cautious when rebarreling a rifle into any of the PRC cartridges. do you know the 7mm Blaser Magnum? Ballistic Profile Specifications: Scope height, velocity, twist rate, and all ballistic data to include bullet Ballistic Coefficient (BC), powder charge, Base to Ogive, and Cartridge Overall Length will be provided with the package. Before SAAMI drawings of the 7 PRC were released, I fully expected the 7 PRC to follow the industry-wide trend of overbore hot-rod cartridges. But what are the flattest shooting rifle cartridges? The 7mm PRC will beat the following cartridges in sales over the next 20 years: 280AI, Gunwerks LRM, and the 7mm Rem Mag. Unfortunately I wasnt able to find any standard case diagrams for the Sherman cartridges so thats really all I can say. The Barnes bullet loses velocity at twice the rate of the VLD! I always run a suppressor would like to see 20 with suppressor vs 24 with break. Keep in mind this is an approximation and although it is quite accurate it should never replace first-hand experience of shooting your specific firearm and ammunition to determine the bullet drop and windage at different ranges and conditions. Check out bestofthewest.com or longrangepursuit.com. Given a 10mph wind and an average load, it drifts just 0.3 at 100 yards, 14.5 at 500 yards, and 69 at 1,000 yards. Now I need to look at the 7.62x54R.

Please let me know how it can be improved upon. How will that compare? Unfortunately, as hunters we have other limitations that force us to settle for equipment with lower BC values and muzzle velocities. If it performs like my 6.5 PRC and 300 PRC, Im guessing it will be a winner too. So, you definitely need a long-range bullet for most longer shots. The specified twist rate for each cartridge dramatically impacts the ability for a firearm to spin a bullet fast enough to stabilize a long bullet in flight. F-Class 32 barrel.

Im still using the same 24 test barrel by Preferred Barrel Blanks for this cartridge. You may be able to use a heavier bullet and achieve more energy or a longer range with more velocity.if(typeof ez_ad_units != 'undefined'){ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'backfire_tv-box-4','ezslot_6',175,'0','0'])};__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-backfire_tv-box-4-0'); Since were talking about max distances, Id like to clarify something here.

Again we see how important a short time of flight is to minimize these effects. You have to find the right balance of weight and aerodynamics. The 30 caliber 165 grain Barnes TSX would have to be fired at 4100 fps muzzle velocity to maintain 2000 fps velocity at 1000 yards.
