The .300 Blackout made its entrance in 2011 by Advanced Armament Corporation. The idea behind the Blackout was to produce a round that could match the performance of our enemy firearm 7.62×39 round. With the capability to be used on an AR platform with a short barrel, based on tactical scenario needs.
At the time the 5.56×45 NATO round was predominantly used for close quarter combat, with a mix of 9mm. (MP5) The results at times were dissatisfied with the performance of these rounds. Which is why the .300 Blackout was the solutions to these needs.
It’s quite remarkable how the .300 BLK has assimilated into so many corners of the shooting community from special ops, competition shooters, home defense, and even hunting.
When looking at 300 BLK ammunition, there is a wide range in performance. The 300 BLK is available in both subsonic and transonic velocities, as you would imagine, it means that the 300 BLK can serve several purposes. The bullet weights for these rounds can also vary pretty dramatically depending on their intended use.
This round’s bullet weighs 125 grains, a weight you’ll certainly find familiar if you’ve worked your way through what its caliber has to offer. Its core is uniform, and its jacket is concentric — that means rewardingly accurate shooting you can enjoy under any circumstances. A first rate primer, propellant, and brass do everything to complement so well-made a bullet’s performance.
