First Shots Out Of 7mm PRC Barrel

7mm PRC Barrel

Aaron C. of Idaho sent us a photo of the first shots (numbers 10, 11, and 12) out of his Shilen Rifles Inc. 7mm PRC barrel purchased from Northland Shooters Supply. He was using factory ammo to break it in.

Here is what Aaron had to say:

“Here’s a group I shot this morning with Hornaday factory ammo. It’s the Precision Hunter 175 ELD-X. The ammo wasn’t super consistent, it was super cold, and 25+ MPH wind but this was the best of the first box. I had a couple of other decent groups. I’ll send more when I hand load with StaBall HD.”

Here are the specs on Aaron’s order:

  • 28” Shilen stainless select match small shank Savage barrel- heavy Palma contour- 7mm PRC- 8 twist with muzzle thread
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • Cerakote finish in Stealth Grey
