Nemo Pratka .300 Win Mag

Nemo Arms has a line of high-end and high-priced ARs in .300 Win Mag. This year they’re adding a blue collar working man’s gun to the lineup at a lower price. Mind you, this “lower price” is still $3,999, so we probably won’t be seeing a ton of these out at the range on the weekend.

The Pratka has a 20″ barrel and lightweight stock, making it more portable than the other cannons in the Nemo lineup. It has a match trigger and billet receiver for a consistent touch and solid feel. The Pratka does not have the adjustable gas block that the rest of the Nemo guns have.

Using Nemo’s patented recoil-reduction technology in the bolt carrier group, I’m told that .300 Win Mag shots “tap like a .223.” I haven’t fired one of these guns, but the literature shows that the Nemo .300 Win Mags kick a little, but only a little, harder than .308 guns. So, despite the manageable recoil, the “taps like a .223″ claim might be a bit of a stretch.

The rep also mentioned that a sniper he talked to told him that he liked the .300 Win Mag guns compared to .308 because he could watch the trail of his shot as it went in, which helped him and his spotter prepare for follow-up shots better and more quickly.

    If that’s the only reason the “sniper” dug the .300 win mag over the .308, I call bullshit on him being a “sniper”.

    Like it not the price think its a M-110 marries a M-2010.

  • Jack Morris

    I had the opportunity to shoot 20 rounds through the Omen a few months ago.
    The recoil was surprisingly light, but not “223 light”.
    The muzzle blast on this gun is intense!

    What was sacrificed from the Omen to achieve the lower price tag, other than an adjustable gas block? It looks about the same to me.

    I would love a 7mm RM or RUM Ar….

    I really am looking at getting the pratka think its a great idea my only issue with this rifle is the fact that nemo didn’t put a moa warranty with this rifle which makes me wonder how the group placement is like. Wouldn’t bother me except they put one with the rest of the rifle they sell at least in 300 win mag. I have sent them an email about moa issue just waiting on a response back
