just a quick question. Thinking sbout getting a 300 Blackout upper for my AR is it worth the effort. Not really into guns I have no use for. I understand the 300 in 110 grain is pretty good for Texas size deer and pigs out to about 200 yards?
I'd say 300blk is a better deer round than 223. I have put 100rds through my pistol so far and really like it. In a rifle, it's basically a 30-30. 200 yards might be its max effective range on deer and pigs.
the 300 BLK is a great deer / hog cartridge. I have never killed anything past 100 yds with mine but some people do. it is NOT a long range big game caliber though. think of it as a light 7.62x39 which is a light .30/30.
my bullet weight preference for deer & hogs is 120 - 130 grs. my favorite bullet is the Hornandy 125 gr. SST. it has accounted for the most 1 shot kills of any bullet I have used. to get the "most" from the little 300 BLK, reloading is best. right now factory ammo is expensive and fairly limited.
