    Just like the title says. I see the notation all over the place, but don't know exactly what it means.

    I'm guessing Lead Round Ball?

    I shoot PRB in one Hawken which has a 1:48 twist, .015" patch and .490 RB, shoots pretty well.

    Ahhh, that makes sense. I was figuring it was a notation for the chemical symbol for lead.

    I'm aligning myself with Loyalist Dave; even if I do know that in the World of Charcoal, PRB means Patched Round Ball :cool:

    I think the question has been truthfully answered. It's also been colorfully answered.
