Christensen Arms : Now Available in 7MM PRC


Oct 26, 2022 | Christensen Arms

Christensen Arms is proud to offer a wide selection of our firearms in the groundbreaking new cartridge from Hornady – 7mm PRC. Get a look behind the curtain at why 7mm PRC was developed in this Hornady guest blog entry.

“As with any new cartridge development, the fundamental question that must be answered is ‘why’. There are many great cartridges already in existence, so creating a new one must pick up where the others leave off. A new cartridge must solve a problem. The 7mm Precision Rifle Cartridge does just that.

It is the first truly modern cartridge in 7mm that incorporates all the design aspects that make it consistent, balanced, efficient and most of all, accurate. It does this all while having the dimensions, tolerances, and standards SAAMI approved. This is important because now all the rifle builders can manufacture a rifle that interfaces perfectly with factory loaded ammunition, providing accuracy and long-range performance that previously required a custom-built rifle or a special handload.

In developing a cartridge, Hornady take a systematic approach to identify what problems exist and how to solve them. With other 7mm cartridges on the market, they were all plagued by similar problems: too slow of a SAAMI twist rate to appropriately stabilize modern, low drag bullets and a restrictive overall length, which shoved much of the bullet deep into the case. There are a few older designs that also suffered from loose chamber geometry, which can degrade accuracy. Couple this with some case designs that are a bit too overbore, and you have a 7mm cartridge selection that leaves much to be desired.

For the 7mm PRC development, we first selected what bullets we were targeting – our lowest drag, highest BC bullets and selected a twist rate that was commensurate. We then designed a chamber, throat, and freebore around those bullets and identified what muzzle velocity was most appropriate. After selecting a target muzzle velocity, we designed a cartridge case that would achieve that velocity using todays modern, temperature stable, magnum speed powder.

The result is an efficient case design, with proper chamber geometry, that will lend itself to the kind of ‘out of the box accuracy’ that our cartridge designs are known for. It has the correct twist rate for today’s long-range bullets, it offers substantial recoil reduction compared to other, more overbore 7mm cartridges on the market, and it does this without sacrificing any long-range shooting capability.

We are proud to release the 7mm PRC. It really rounds out the family of products that wear the ‘Precision Rifle Cartridge’ name. We truly believe this cartridge will quickly become a customer favorite and is appropriate for all North American big game. Whether you’re hunting whitetails in the east or you’re a western hunter pursuing elk in the mountains or shooting an ELR match – the 7mm PRC provides you confidence and accuracy at all practical ranges.”

Thanks to Hornady for providing this insight into their new cartridge. Check out our 7mm PRC-chambered products here.

NEW: The Ranger 22

The Ranger 22

New for 2020

Jan 20, 2020 | Christensen Arms

The NEW Ranger 22 brings a widely anticipated rimfire option back to the Christensen Arms line-up. Far beyond the bounds of an average plinking gun, this new firearm delivers the top-tier performance expected from Christensen Arms in an advanced .22 caliber firearm. The lightweight bolt-action platform is built for precision and easily adapts to all challenges, big or small.

The Ranger 22 begins as a precision machined aluminum receiver that features dual opposing steel locking lugs. The action is fitted to a Christensen Arms Carbon Fiber Tension Rimfire Barrel with a 22 LR Bentz match chamber to ensure superior accuracy and performance. Then the threaded muzzle is paired with a thread protector, and the same adjustable match-grade trigger used in our centerfire rifles is installed alongside our standard bolt-knob. Even better—the rifle utilizes standard Ruger® 10/22 magazines. 

When the barreled action is mounted into a Carbon Fiber Composite Rimfire Stock, it gains a number of additional features. The palm hook assists a shooter in establishing a solid seat against their shoulder, while palm swell and angled grip help secure a stable platform wherever it may be needed. Offered in two distinct styles—the Ranger 22 is available in our classic Black with Gray Webbing finish as well as a new Tan with Black Webbing option.

The Ranger 22 is priced at $795 and is available chambered in 22 LR with an 18 inch barrel. Once complete, the firearm weighs in starting at 5.1 pounds and is backed by a Sub-MOA at 50 Yards Accuracy Guarantee. We take great pride in the products that we produce, and if we put our name on it, we’ll stand behind it. As with all of our rifles, the Ranger 22 is built here in the USA and is available to order from any Christensen Arms dealer.
