They are very similar in case capacity.  Nosler brass is a lot better than Hornady.  300 PRC is very new and not people have experience with it.

yeah if hornady was my only option for brass I'd probably pass on that caliber.  If shooting factory ammo though I'd run it for sure!  Bertram is gonna make prc brass though I believe.

Howís the 30 Nosler compared to the 300 PRC?

Ballistic twins. Pick you brand loyalty and be happy.

I've personally had excellent luck with the Hornady 375 Ruger case and pretty mediocre performance from the Nosler 375 Ruger brass. I've use the 375 Ruger case for a 375 Ruger as well as a couple of different 338/375 Rugers and I'll use it in my 270 Boondoggle when that's finished up. Loads that will give me 5-6 firings per case in Hornady brass ruined the Nosler cases in 2 firings. These were not just the same powder charge dumped into a Nosler case, it was a load worked up to the same velocity with the same bullet in both cases. The actual powder charges were slightly different. I experienced this in both the 375 Ruger and the 338/375 Ruger.

Bunch of dorks in Oregon that roll dice to come up with a caliber.

But seriously what is the point of the 22 Nosler.

I see threads often....28 Nosler.....30 Nosler.....Yes I know they shoot and often shoot very well and yes performance is good and terminal performance on game is good but every thread has the same underlying theme.....you are pressed to find brass for what us clearly a reloaders caliber(s). I admit fully that I like the classics. 308. 270. 7mm rem mag. I also ageee that they are newer and have a cool factor. But....if components are that hard to find why the love?


 Some people don't want a Creedmore.

 :chuckle:  :chuckle: :chuckle: now that is funny !

TRUMP, please make America great again!

I got no love for anything nosler :chuckle: 🤮💩
Really not a fan of hornady either except the 147gr  9mm xtpís. Those bullets rock  :stirthepot:

For the record the 300 prc isnít new. It just has a new name and now factory offerings
Why would anyone want to shoot factory ammunition any way :chuckle:

Friends don't let friends, shoot factory ammunition!  Well, unless it's in a 6.5 Creedmoor, then I suppose it's ok.  :chuckle:
