Killed a bunch of hogs with my buddies 300 blackout at 125 yards or closer. It works great but my way of thinking is if you're not suppressed you might as well get something else that shoots flatter and hits harder at further distances.

It has about the ballistics of a light .357mag load. Hollywood quiet with can through a bolt rifle but range is limited enough it doesn’t seem like an optimal hunting option.

I’m not a big fan of it. We’ve shot several animals with it and other than head shots we’ve had poor performance, little to no knock down power and poor blood trails, even with the bullets that we’re supposed to be the best. I sold both of the guns I had.

I got in on 300BO early on, 7" barrel w/ a can. It's the favorite for friends and family when shooting 50y and in because of how quiet it is. That's about all i use it for these days. I won't get rid of it, but i don't use it for anything other than that. There are too many more useful rounds.

Lol, I'm in the same boat, trying to decide if the 300 BO is my next truck gun. Already have a very nice sight and can, just weighing options.

6.5 Grendel or 6.8 SPC are better options, IMO
I had a 300 BO, not suppressed with a 16" barrel. it would do the job, but it just was not enough gun in some cases.
I have 6.5 Grendel now with no complaints.

Lackluster round. Cool when suppressed with subs but not enough knockdown and if shooting supers you may as well shoot a better caliber. I suggest 6.5G or good ole 233 with a 60+ grain soft point

This is my thought. I have a couple of ARs chambered in 300BLK and if you're shooting subsonic you really need to have your shot placement on point b/c they don't hit hard enough to bring pigs down with body shots. Supersonic is a little better but you're kind of defeating the purpose.

Really wish I had my 6.5 Grendel back

I love mine.

I've killed a truckload of pigs with it. Anywhere from 5 yards all the way out to 300. I do not shoot subs. I load my own 110gn TacTX, and they're pretty hot.

Biggest pig was well over 300lbs (no scale, weight by tape measure and formula - Heart girth x heart girth x length / 400).

Pass. Heavy bullet moving slow. Subs don’t reliably expand and it won’t push supers fast enough to do real good. Head shots work up close. Far better calibers out there. And I have one lol. Got it years ago to try. 9” SBR. Someday I’ll swap that barrel out maybe. It’s a small handy rifle. But man the ballistics sure suck

I own a few, one a pistol and I like the round for what it is.

It was designed to be a CQC round to replace handgun rounds that were in submachine guns, like 9mm.

So it gives more knockdown at close quarters without over penetrating, but also extended the range for rooftop threats.

It wasn't meant to be a replacement for 5.56 or any other rifle round.

I haven't had any issues at under 150 yards dropping hogs with 110 VMax rounds. I enjoy it suppressed at lower yardages with sub-sonic rounds as well.

Iíve got the Ruger Ranch & it wasnít impressed at all!! My son shot a small doe at 45yrds, she ran around 125yrds before piling up. No blood at all & no exit wound, we ended up having to do a grid search to find her. Thick east Texas wasnít nice to us that day. Thatís the last animal I shot with & havenít shot it since. I believe Iíll stick to my 17 Hornet!!

Agree with the consensus above. I sold mine after a few years, went to a 6.8SPC for more range and have been very happy with results. More 1 stop drops for me. Bought a Wilson Combat 300 Ham'r last summer, so far I really like the results. Wilson developed the cartridge to overcome the ballistic drop off of the 300BO and the 300 Ham'r has more velocity and energy than the 300BO.

I went the other way. I could never get my 7.62x39 to feed consistently...would always get bolt override impingements even after reworking the feed ramps and swapping mags. I finally ditched it for the 300BLK...I'm happy enough with it but may consider swapping it out for another Grendel

I have a 16" barreled TC contender and i love the little thing. Finding ammo is of course a pain and I've only owned it since January so i haven't gotten to really know it yet.

I have shot a WT buck and a black buck, both with factory Barnes 110 grain. The WT was 20yds away and the blackbuck about 100. You have to keep in mind the 300 doesnt have alot of horsepower so pick your shots.

I have three of them and really like them with correct bullets loaded at supersonic levels. My kids and I have shot many deer and pigs with them and had no issues with recovery. Its ballistics are close to a 30/30 and I grew up hunting with one so just have to know your limits and it will do the job.

The other advantage is you can shoot it in an 8" barrel at night and still be able to see. The powder is burnt before the muzzle. In a 5.56 I believe you need a 13" barrel to avoid the fireball.

The other advantage for the round is the parent case is 5.56, so in a normal ammunition market (not the last year) you should be able to get ammo inexpensively because manufacturers can produce it without many changes to equipment.

I don't think 5.56 is a great hunting round either unless your target is two-legged. Doesn't mean it won't work but there are better options.

That being said, I own a few of those too.

I love my SBR but admit it's insanely accurate for an AR...sold my bolt gun as 22 rimfire is where the fun suppressed is. The 110 Barnes are effective on our little deer within it's range limit but rarely pull it out if whitetail is on the menu. There is no reason to switch or buy another upper in a 6.5 or 6.8 for what I use it for. One of my favorite truck guns for sure.

If I was starting from scratch & wanted a strictly hunting ar for medium game them the 6.5 is a little sexier / better equipped for the application.

It has its place:
-efficiently suppressed
-easily converted from a very cheap wildly available case
-30 cal... so is most everything else I shoot
-moving slower so far less over penetration concerns
—when shooting hogs on big acreage where cattle are involved, this is a plus
-low recoil, great for kids to learn with
-runs great on an AR platform including standard mags

There are negatives but the haters already lined them out pretty well. I mostly use for when driving around 15k acres shooting hogs at night on a cattle ranch or when a kid is involved. I also enjoy tinkering with reloading and it’s a fairly cheap round to do that with.

i agree with most posts "pass" ... most people don't have the skill to shoot 300blk and make an ethical kill ...

it's not a power house , it drops like a rock, it's slow...

as a matter of fact , it's almost as bad as shooting a bow! and why would anyone want to do that????

pic is ... 110gr vmax. 280 yards 2.1mil 300blk heart shot.

I've found zero uses for it. I shot a small boar hog twice in the head, 1.5" below the ear, and he was still trying to bite me when I got to him. That is not acceptable to me.

Aside from being quiet, there's nothing it's as good at as the Grendel, or the 6.8.

If you want one get it in a pistol. They are very efficient in short barrels.

Like Gummi I love mine. Any time Iím at the lease in the truck or on the golf cart, itís what rides every time. Mine is an 8Ē SBR and itís killed a butt load of deer, pigs and coyotes.

I know for a fact that 110 grain Barnes TAC-TX bullets at 2315fps will flat out mess a Coyote up at 125 yards. Shot him square in the chest facing me and it came out in that broken hip/elbow joint and took half his insides with it.

the moped of the gun world.

kind of fun, but essentially useless.

the best use I've personally found is a decent truck gun. I have one with a 9" barrel. with the suppressor it's about the same size as a 16" AR. quiet gun to use to wound pigs and splash pond turtles driving around the lease.

Junk unless you just want to shoot paper and steel with subs and a suppressor for fun. Theyíre entertaining for that purpose, but if Iíll just shoot a suppressed .22 if I want to plink with something quiet. I had one for a solid week before I got rid of it.

Way better options out there for a killing cartridge.

Junk it is not, at least in my personal experience and probably close to 100 dead animals including a 12 point killed with subs.

As to the second part of your statement, while true, thereís a plethora of mainstream cartridges that the same can be said for.

Aside from being quiet, there's nothing it's as good at as the Grendel, or the 6.8.
slaughter houses kill 2000lbs animals with 22 short. and you can't manage to kill a small hog by shooting it twice in the head with 1377 ft/lbs of energy and it's the cartridge's fault ??? ah... ok!

I have a Honey Badger with a Trijicon Reap IR thermal and absolutely love it for a hog gun. Gun, suppressor and scope together weigh right at 7 pounds. Have several other hog guns and still always go back to the 300.

Supersonic, it's just an expensive 7.62x39 or 30-30. Subsonic, I've been disappointed with the results.
