pretty sure you rear sight is backwards
Excellent review. Thank you.
whaty did 300 AAC cost in 2013 🙁
Witch would you rather have 9mm hand cabine or 300 black out
Have you done a review of the 350 legend yet?
I know this post is old.. but still great information!
Sootch, do you still feel this way about the 300 AAC in 2021?
So your saying if I have an ar-15 chambered in .223, I can get a 300blkO barrel and I’d be good?
Shoots 1.00$ rounds, uses plastic flip ups lol
I’d heard about the 300BO years ago but pew-pew’d (pun intended) the idea as a passing fad. Boy was I wrong. Over the last two years, I’ve picked up 3 different uppers in 300, got sick of paying a buck a round, and started loading it. I love the versatility of this round, the suppressability, the short-barreled ballistics, the decent range, and the ability to hunt AND defend with it. What do I want for Christmas??? A 7.5" folding 300BO pistol for a truck gun!!!
I think you have just convinced me to start liking the AR platform again. I am retired military and we use the “AR” platform (M-16/M-4) and I don’t like it’s “true “ intended purpose, due to the reason for NATO, the 5.56 round was intended to maim not kill..look up the nato reasoning behind it.. But all the enemies had AK rounds. We weren’t fighting another country, we were engaging terrorist .. I’m going to go back to the AR platform and try the black out. Thanks
Most of the comments about ammo prices are hilarious right now.
Wooooowwww first off I want to say you are CHEAP second of all I have a ps90 and my EDC my EVERY DAY CARRY is a FnH 5.7×28 I only shoot and practice with custom rounds $100 for 25 for $50 sometimes $50 for 50 and other times $100 for 50 now if you think the 300blk out is expensive your crazy how can you put a price on something to protect you number three and number four how can you practice with cheap Ammo you need to be use to everything about you gun stop being chap Nd putting a price tag on protection idk if you ever been shot or shot at or been in a fire fight but I pay too dollar on all my products because I need to know my life is safe!!
300 black out rifle
got recommended this video and watched it, but 11:13 threw me off. definitely when i realized it was an older video, same box of .300 aac blackout is now 35$ lol
This is a bad video do your resaerch folks
I absolutely love my 300 blackout, I built the rifle myself but due to COVID the ammo is through the roof expensive at a solid 1.85 per round, but the fact that I can go subsonic in a mag change is worth it
Best 300BLK video on YouTube. Hands down.
lol 6 years ago,when the internet still believed 762 had more penetration
Cost wasn’t mentioned, 300 blk ammo is ridiculously expensive as of this post’s date, and not to mention very hard to find. The downfalls of 7.62x39mm were overstated. It really is superior in many ways in an AR. The money you’d save shooting this cheaper round you could invest in bolts and barrels and still be saving money. Lastly the vast majority of target shooters will never notice a difference in accuracy between the 300 blk and the 7.62x39mm.
Shark byte. Don’t think so. 45 ain’t outdated, it’s better than 10 mm. More guns chambered for it, easier to find ammo for it, 45 cost less, almost as powerful with plus p loads.. Almost. Way easier on the gun for maintenance. way lower chamber pressure like 20,000 psi compared to 40,000 psi for 10mm. Hear that polymer guns are cracking under the stress and high chamber pressure of the 10mm. Harder to shoot, more recoil, harder to upgrade and accessorize, less parts also. I’ll keep my glock 30s. I look at the 10 mm glock 29. 45 acp better for all those reasons I just listed. Anything a 10mm can kill, so can a 45
Not that easy. The barrels are ported at pistol length, ~6.5 inches opposed to carbine or rifle. So, need a gas tube, gas block and maybe more to convert a 223/556 to 300. Still better than buying a whole new rifle.
In 2021 we’re averaging $1.00 (Wolf) to $3.00 (higher end) per round.
Not worth the money , but great for military application as intended…
How easy is it to swap barrels, I am new to AR platform, I have a Del-Ton Echo 3 556. And I was thinking about getting a 300 blackout barrel.
Usefull video with the info I needed. Regards from the EU.
Great decision for a AR15 conversion.
$11.99/box…………..its $1.50/rnd now
Now that Russian ammo ban is now in full effect, its possible that 300 blackout prices will equalize (or at least close in) with 7.62×39. Hopefully U.S. ammo makers will up there 30 caliber game.
556 cartridge and 762 head, learnt what a .300 blackout is!
Thank you for actually knowing what your talking about. Have they made a bullet that’s a mix between the 2 creations preferably a happy medium between the 556 and the AK round?
not an ak-47 only, its the ak platform. LuL
All These Specs Is For………..Home Defense?……Who Breakin In Your House Seal Team 6?… 9/40/45/300/762/556/38 ….2 Shots 2 Da head Threat Down…So This Must B For Sport Competition
Almost sounds like my hammerli 22lr I want a can so bad now
The 7.62 does NOT penetrate better than a 62g 5.56
Cmon Scotchy. That knock down power test was pathetic.
Scootch, what would you buy now, a 556 8 inch or a 300 8 inch? Post c19?
Your sights are backwards
The 300 blackout is just a testament to the design genius of the AR 15.
The 6.5 Grendel is my favorite because it extends range and lethality while only marginally reducing capacity.
The 300 gives you that heavy for caliber CQB lethality that is purpose built for suppressors and short barrels. If that’s your thing, you have the perfect excuse for building one!
I just bought a box of 300 sub
What barrel would you recommend to change my .556 over to a 300?
300 blackout rocks, my AR with seven inch barrel is quiet as shit with subsonic 220 grain unsuppressed. Great caliber
I been on the fence about the 300 AAC, my mind is now made up, ill be getting a PSA complete upper chambered in 300AAC BLK, no brainer
Super informative right up until the "Long Live The Republic" stuff. Neat vid tho
