Remington Begins Shipping UMC Brand Subsonic 300 BLK | The Truth About Guns
It sucks. I already have the can, got the money for the upper, but refuse to pay $2 a round. Oh well, maybe in a few years....
I saw it coming a couple years ago and hoarded when it was cheap.
You need to make it out to one of our Range Days!
300 blackout is a prime candidate for "roll your own". I have a couple/three i'm working on, never shot. Would accumulate brass then reload.
300BLK was one of the main reasons I started reloading back in January. Wow, even for this novice, my 300BLK reloads were far superior (as in more accurate and cheaper) than the Remington stuff. 208gr Amax or 220gr SMK sitting on top of ~10.6gr of A1680 works well (but as always refer to your own load data manual).
It never gained a huge following when JD Jones introduced it as the .300 Whisper.
I can't see how a new name and over-priced ammo, or guns with AAC on the side will help.
A very limited cartridge to me, I'd rather have a 7.62x39mm
It will do everything the 7.62x39 will plus do it reliably in an AR platform. Not to mention it is suppressor friendly.
My experience with the 300blackout has not been good yet. The home loads I have made are so bad I thought my bullets were under size, at 25yards I could miss a standard target about half the time. The powders for more common loads have not been available in my area or online since before I bought my upper.
When I can buy factory loads below .60 a round or jacketed bullets that don't cost as much as loaded ammo maybe I will see an improvement.
