    Post1911 $175 300 blackout barrels

    DSA ZM4 16 Inch Chrome Moly Barrel 300 BLK 1:8 Twist - ZM400116300-D S Arms

    i don't know if this counts as a "deal" but it does seem as 300BO barrels are coming down a bit in price.

    Is it more knock down power, longer range?

    the 300BO is a good idea in it is sort of a straight walled 7.62x39 but it uses standard 308 bullets.

    it probably is s good short/medium range round for deer.

    i don't think it can do anything i can't all ready do with the 7.62x39 in the ar-15s. since i built two 7.62s i don't have much need for the 300bo.

    the main reason for the 300 is it should make a fine round for running a quiet can, sort of like a more standard 300whisper-- that will be cheaper to load since it uses a standard brass and a standard bullet in .308 dia .

    the bad thing about all these 'improved" ar-15 rounds like 6.8spc,6.5 grendel, 300BO and so on is they do offer some improvements they never just blow away the old 7.62x39 and even the 5.56 , then add in the extra expense of the new exotic stuff.

    the only exotic i have is a 6.5g it is an excellent all around rifle that can take medium sized game at as long a range as i'll what to shoot.

    the down side to is is the cost and a 7.62x39 is just as good to about 300m--

    hell my roll your own 75gr 5.56 load works very well to about 500m , the grendel is better than the either at range but not better than the 308 bolt gun which costs less to shoot and still has more power.

    i think that is the deal with the mid sized assault type rounds. they are all a trade off somewhere.

    you either get more powder or more lead but ya cant have both in that small case and mag.


    less you really like loading your own, i think it is best to stick with the standard military rounds like 7.62x39/5.56 and if you loose a brass it won't cost ya $0.50--


    and you can buy the military round still fairly cheap compared to the exotic stuff.

    A friend is looking heavily at getting an AR in 300 blackout, doing SBR conversion, then putting a can on it. Seems the round lends itself well to suppression.

    When the deal is done (likely Christmas), I will see if he's willing to let me post on it (after shooting, of course!!), or get him to join and post himself...

    i have heard the 300-BO is the ticket for canned application. the rater small volume of the case and the ability to load really long heavy rounds is a big plus in that type of situation.

    since the subsonic guys mostly load their own anyway the 300 should really shine for them.

    one of the things i thought i would be doing was load ammo cheap-- now i am paying $0.17 for just the bullet--

    back in the day i could load the round for less than $0.05 if i hit the gun shows and sales just right--

    hey 4th did you ever build that 16" or 14.5" beater upper? just wondering--

    damn 4th, how many uppers did you and your pal mongo assemble? LOL!

    i recall a while back you were thinking of building or buying either a cheap 16" or do a 14.5" SBR add on--yea that has been a while back. quite a few beers have went down the hatch since then.

    i just remembered it because DSA still has those chrome lined 14.5" for $150 and they still got that bare bones 16" upper for $240.


    i am kind of fond of that 14.5" that i blind pinned out to 16" cause it don't ring my ears too much i i forget my ear plugs--LOL
