Right on the heels of some of the latest introductions like the Impulse Mountain Hunter is Savage’s newest cartridge offering for some of their most popular rifles – 7mm PRC. 7mm PRC is a great cartridge for shooters who want to extend their range capabilities for either ELR competitions or long-range hunting and is well known for its laser-like trajectory drop at shorter distances within 500 yards. The new Savage 7mm PRC capabilities will be added to 11 of Savage’s currently existing rifles and they should all be available towards the end of 2022.

New Savage 7mm PRC Long Range Rifles Announced
WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – October 26, 2022 – Following the recent launch of the Impulse Mountain Hunter, Savage Arms is thrilled to introduce a wide array of rifles chambered in one of the newest long-action cartridges, 7mm PRC from Hornady®. The 7mm PRC provides ultimate performance without compromising accuracy.
“We’re thrilled to get these 7mm PRC additions into the hands of Savage fans and shooters everywhere,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “With Savage’s heritage for proven accuracy, these rifles are designed for top performance and match grade accuracy, putting challenging shots and the biggest game in your reach.”
Optimized for ultimate long-range shooting and big game hunts, the Hornady® 7mm PRC utilizes long, high BC bullets for excellent and repeatable execution. The case is designed to use common, temperature-stable, magnum-speed propellants yielding consistent velocity and increased barrel life. These rifles are hunt-ready and changing the game for 2023.
The 7mm PRC cartridge is designed to have a maximum cartridge overall length (COL) of 3.340 and is optimized for a 1:8 twist barrel to stabilize the upper end of 7mm bullet weights. Users can expect to achieve a muzzle velocity of about 3,000 fps from 24″ barrels using 175-grain and 180-grain bullets.
Savage will have the 7mm PRC cartridge available in 11 different rifles to start with ranging in price from $709 for their 110 Apex Hunter XP (left-handed model as well) all the way up to their newest offering, the Impulse Mountain Hunter at $2,437. According to Savage Arms, the new 7mm PRC rifles will be available in late 2022 and if you’re interested in picking one up, you should contact your local Savage dealer or retailer for ordering info.
