300 Blackout

Anyone got one? or have any views on them?

Are they any good?

How accurate are they and what range are they effective for hunting?

Re: 300 Blackout

Ahhh, the 7.62x35....Better known as the .300 AAC Blackout or .300 Whisper. Great caliber. Effective killing with super-sonic loads out to +/- 400 meters. The round was originally designed to be shot suppressed and subsonic, but the supers seem to be performing very well, too.

My most recent AR build, that I am in the middle of, will be a 300 BLK.

Just do some google research on the round and ballistics and stuff. And do lots of it. I always do before I buy anything.
