New .300 AAC Blackout rifles

The relatively new .300 AAC¬†Blackout cartridge has become very popular, especially in the USA. The round was designed to give similar power to the 7.62x39mm round, but still fit in an AR-15 magazine, the solution was to neck a .223 case up to .30 calibre. This means that the .300 Blackout can be loaded into any AR-15 .223 magazine, with the bolt face and receiver being the same, .300 Blackout uppers are available for most AR’s. The .300 Blackout has become famous for being one of the few centrefire rifle rounds that is availablesubsonic from the factory, meaning when fired through a suppressor the noise is almost non-existent. These subsonic loads are very effective at close range, with trajectory and energy almost identical to the .45 ACP pistol round, while the high-velocity ones are more powerful and flatter shooting than 7.62x39mm rounds, approaching light .30-30 loads. We now have .300 Blackout rifles in stock, with more rifles and ammo on the way, watch this space. More info on this cartridge
