F-Open for sure. PRS I do not think will work because of feeding issues. Rimed cases are a pain in that area.

Pretty awesome stuff.

This is a purpose built F-Class cartridge. I do not think PRS is a match. I would never bother using one in one. For that just use a 6.5x47.

I shot it and it works. Have to do some load work up. My test rounds which were very undercharged had me at 2830fps with only 45gr of powder. This case has room for up to 54gr. Image
