Default 300 Blackout Questions

I'm getting bored waiting on my bolt action rifles to get built and Jason has put the 300BO bug in my head. Who owns one, are they really all the hype? Anyone know the quality of CMMG rifles?

Yeah, I told Chase that's a big ole difference when the average 300 is 115-125 or so....then go to the 220!!!! That bullet probably touches the primer!!!!

I believe this round is going to be BIG TIME!!!! So my other lower will be just fer 1!!! Kendive will try to talk me into getting a can fer that 1 too, right Ken Zombie Killer it is!!!!

I've got one, I've got 800 rounds of subsonic, and 400 of super. It is very fun to shoot, and very versatile. All you have to do is change the barrel in a standard AR, however I built mine from the ground up. My barrel and most of my upper is cmmg, that being said I've had no problems.

It's only worth it if your going to get a suppressor. The big draw to it is the subsonic and how easy it is to change over to the caliber. Other than that I don't see buying an expensive caliber that will sound just as loud as any other rifle.

Might do some more research. Everything I've read is you can shoot Whisper out of a Blk Out upper but not the opposite, I'm not 100% just what I've read.

Speaking of ways to get ammo if actual .300 BLK ammo isn’t available, ammunition compatibility is another reason the .300 AAC Blackout round outperforms the competition. The .300 Whisper cartridge has been on the market for a while now and can be found in most gun stores around me, but .300 BLK is still relatively new and ammunition is scarce. Thanks to the higher chamber pressures and larger cartridge of the .300 BLK round the firearms are able to accept and safely fire most .300 Whisper ammunition. I did an*Ask Foghorn article*about that very question and it goes into some more detail, but .300 Whisper in a .300 BLK gun is generally cool while the opposite is dangerous and will result in malfunctions.
