Finally got my 300 blackout built. Wanted to do something different , so I Duracoated the whole rifle with the exception of the SS barrel. Still have to sight it in. Should have to go test fire some guns soon, will take it then.
With all the printed writeups on which is better, which did you go with on this rifle? Is the round the same as a 300 whisper but with a lighter bullet and higher pressures?
I went with the 300 BO, first because of cost. It was the least expensive caliber to get into instead of another 5.56 . Uses the 5.56 bolt and mags. Just a barrel swap.
Second reason is - that Freedom Group has made a commitment to this caliber and has dumped alot of money into it. H&R and AAC got together and made a threaded 300 single shot, Remington has a bolt gun. Ammo is not to bad. I think I am paying $12.00 per box.
This caliber just seems to be right. CMMG stopped producing 6.8SPC barrels totally.... Switched production to 300 BO.
