I think the "custom" statement was made because of reamer design. A quick search only shows Savage with one on the market. So if you want a 7PRC but not a Savage, I guess it's going to be "custom".

Hey, if someone wants a new toy cool rock on, but there is a whole lot of marketing behind it and it probably will do okay because of that, not because it fills a void in the market.

Dead is dead, 7PRC, 7RM, 7SAUM.... it really doesn't matter, that's all I'm saying.

I see bullet selection and making a good shot far more important than which comparable 7mm cartridge to select.

YMMV and that's okay!

The list below is a cut and paste from this link to outdoor life but it's a good read with a lot of information.  https://www.outdoorlife.com/guns/7mm-prc-tested-and-reviewed/

Available Rifles in the 7mm PRC
A cartridge is only as good as the number of firearms makers that agree to chamber it. And by this measure the 7 PRC is off to a good start. Although Iím sure there are plenty of smaller custom rifle makers champing at the bit to build rifles in the this round, too, the official list of companies planning to make rifles in this round includes the following:

Allterra Arms
Best of the West
Christensen Arms
Fierce Firearms
Gunwerks
Hill Country Rifles
H-S Precision
Horizon Firearms
J.P. Sauer & Sohn
McWhorter Custom Rifles
Proof Research
Remington
Ruger (coming later 2023)
Savage
Seekins Precision
Short Action Customs
Springfield Armory (coming 2023)
TS Customs
West Texas Ordnance

Ya this sure is getting the marketing and it sure has me thinking, was 90% settled on building a 280 AI and have been thinking since June (the 10%) wait till a bit more information is out, now Iím thinking the build might just have to be this

Hmmmmmm New barrel time for the old truck gun, just gotta get the right Reamer to avoid the common PRC Clickers

I have a LA Rem 700 all done up ready to go that's been sitting on the shelf for a couple years now waiting to get turned into something and I've got a couple Bartlein 8.5tw .284 barrels inbound.  I've been wanting to build my daughter something that'll kind of be a good do all rifle that had pretty decent legs to it, had manageable recoil, and if I wasn't around, preferably that'll be a longggg time from now  ;) she'd be able to get good factory ammo for it.  Both barrels are Bartlein's 3B profile so they won't be real big but still have enough muzzle dia. to thread 5/8x24 to run a can on it and I'll have it finished at 22.  Even with a 22 I'm guessing it'll be in the 2900-2950 range with 180's but only time will tell.

Maybe by then factory ammo will be available!  Just hoping for brass somewhere.

I got my two new 5R 3B barrels, one will finish at 22 the other 26,  from Bartlein Tuesday and I'm already second guessing my idea of going 7 PRC.  I already have lots of new 7 Blaser mag brass, already have the dies, Shawn already has a 7 Blaser mag reamer from the first one he built for me and I pretty much know what to expect with another 7 Blaser build sooo other than factory ammo, which may or may not be all that available, I'm starting to think maybe I'll just have Shawn build me another 7 Blaser for my daughter but in a shorter 22in barrel configuration.  Since I already have everything I'll need with a 7 Blaser, for me, it may be the smarter choice.  :dunno:

Man it's too bad there aren't already some .284 clamberings that can push a 180 at 2900fps + :peep:

True, but are any of them doing it with factory ammo? 

For me, the only reason the 7 PRC interested me was since this would be a build for my daughter and I don't foresee her ever doing any reloading, years from now, the 7 PRC could be the better choice but I'm already starting to second guess that plan and now I'm leaning toward a 22in 7 Blaser build instead of a 7 PRC.

I will definitely have one in the safe. It's a well put together 7mm from top to bottom and Hornady has shown a habit of keeping stuff on the shelves for their creations, and so has the rest of the industry.
