300 Blackout

The 300 Blackout is AAC's answer to the 300 Whisper created by JD Jones.
JD based his Whisper round off of a .221 case and necked it up to a 30 cal. JD has the Whisper copyrighted so he would charge companies to use the name. AAC took the concept, modified it by using the 5.56 case and pushed it through SAAMI so that anyone could use it without copyright infringement.
They are two different rounds, like .223 and 5.56. The Whisper can be fired through a Blackout, but it is not recommended to shoot the Blackout through the Whisper.

The round is comparable to the 7.62X39.
It works very well suppressed. I know of a couple of guys that hunt deer with it and have had great results. I also know of a guy that hunts more dangerous game and has had great results.

I would recommend one as your second or third AR.

brand?

What brand of rifle? The Blackout has a lot going for it but there are brands of AR in that price range I wouldn't get in .300AAC or any other caliber.

Shooting

Good luck shooting a lot, 3006 is not a caliber I would shoot a lot. When I take my big caliber guns to the range, it is just to make sure they are still zeroed in, then back in the case.

shot/kill

I have found, you can either shoot or you can't. Having said that, shooting long range is much different than shooting at 100 yards. My shooting range has a 300, 500 and 1000 yard ranges. I am still in the 10 ring at the 300 yard range with my 270 Win and my 300 Win Mag. At 500 I can place the rounds on the paper, that still puts deer on the ground.

Work

No kids and I work about 8 to 10 days a month, sometimes even less. Once the weather breaks, the wife and I shoot 1 to 2 times a week. If I can only get her to cook, she would be the perfect wife.

300 BLK

I just finished my 300 BLK build, and I love it. Recoil is less than that of the 5.56 (I know, hard to believe) much quieter, and does a real number on pigs. Wouldn't shoot over 300 yrds,but for closer shots, it's great. It has a ton of energy, even at 700 yrds, but an unbelievable amount of drop.
