Talking .300 blk for hogs sub or super?

I've had a 300blk for a while now and was fortunate to buy plenty of ammo at a very reasonable price. How is the blackout on a hog. What ammo should I use 220gr subsonic, or 115-125gr super sonic. I don't for see a shot over 50-60 yards...Frank I know it ain't a 6.8 but I have lots of respect for your opinion...

not frank here but I have been involved with this caliber since its inception= last year! / yes the 300BO is less than 2 years old officially

our problem right now is the sub sonics pass right through without opening up so I would say go supersonic because a Hog can be more than you bargain for.

when they prefect this new cartridge to open up reliably and deliver its over 500+ ft/Lbs of energy quickly you will have a winner.
that new design will come very soon as this cartridge is here to stay

My 5.56 works just fine on hogs...even with ball ammo.

The 300 BO was developed to be a suppressed cartridge. It was essentially abandoned by the military - so the proponents have turned to marketing hype for civilians to make the sale.

It's over-rated and the job can be done (better) with other conventional loads... JMHO

have to disagree. no .223FMJ with less energy than any 30 cal will stop a hog more efficiently.
I do agree there are better calibers such as the .50

I think where the 300BO shines is the fact I can take out a thug who invades my home without disturbing the neighbors or bothering the local prescient!
Instead I can notify the sheriffs office when they open in the morning and have them bring out the coroner while I make a pot of fresh coffee

Yep Scuba, the only place the 300BO works as advertised is as a suppressed and subsonic rd.(and they're are better options that case too) but the hype on it continues for our civilian market, they gotta sell them somewhere! At least they will have a lower to pin on a good upper...LOL

Sorry 300 fanboys, don't hate, JMHO

Didn't that happen to the 6.8 too?

Seems like both rounds have some things to offer but they weren't enough for big MIL to have deal with in small numbers for their SF guys or change everyone's rifle over.
