I just wanted to give you Guys some feedback regarding the 300 Blackout from the SouthEast part of the U.S.. I live in Middle Tennessee and the terrain here is SO Drastically different than where you Guys are Hunting, and we only have White Tail Deer which are Much smaller than the Mule Deer that you Hunt.
The 300 Blackout is a Perfect Round for Deer hunting here where your longest shot may be 100 yards at the Most, it could be farther but Most likely it won't? We have so many Hills with thick Brush it really is tough to get a Long Range shot in most places, so the 300 Blackout SuperSonic or Subsonic Both work Great. There are a Lot of people that Hunt Wild Hogs in Texas, Georgia and South Carolina with the Blackout using 220 Grain SMK's Subsonic. If you've never seen what a 30 Caliber 220 Grain bullet will do to a Deer or a Wild Boar shooting Subsonic rounds, you really should check it out. That bullet is devastating on a Deer or Hog, especially if you hit the front shoulder! It will shatter their shoulder and make a mess of the Vital parts, every time..
When I first started shooting Subsonic after I got my Suppressors, I focused on my 300 Blackout first and began loading my ammo.. I hadn't thought much about the amount of energy that 200 Grain 30 caliber bullet had traveling at about 1050 FPS, but after I propped up a couple of 2 x 4's & a piece of plywood and zeroed in my AR-15, shot it supressed & it sounded like a Pop Gun Every Shot ;-). It was So Much fun and I have No idea how many rounds I fired, maybe 200??
But, when I was finished shooting I got my Targets & put them away, then I took down the plywood & 2x4's and set them on the ground to take them back with me. Then I walked behind the Church to take a leak, and as I stood there looking BACK at where I had been shooting FROM?? OMG =-0 It LOOKED like there had BEEN a WAR Fought there? My Gosh, there were these Obvious Bullet Holes in SO MANY Trees, from 2 inches up to SIX inch Diameter Trees where the bullets went threw the trees & BLEW OUT the Back, knocking Off the Bark & Exposing So Much light Fresh WOOD all Splintered out???
I felt Horrible about what I had done to so many trees around that Historic Church & Old School House. The next spring I found out a LOT of DEAD Tree's had to be cut down around that old Building because they had died?? I felt like a POS when I Heard that?!!?!!?!?!?!?!!
That's when I found out what a Subsonic Bullet would Actually do to Tree's, both Big & Small.. That's a Lot of Energy!
If I'm not mistaken, a 220 Grain 30 Caliber Bullet being fired from a 10" Barrel has 10 Times more Energy than a 75 Grain 223 Bullet being fired from a 20" Barrel... Is that correct?? I believe it now since I've been shooting my 10.5" 300 Blackout Barrel from BHW, it still sends the bullets sailing threw the trees (Literally)!
Last week I went to the Range and shot my AR SBR suppressed and was able to hit an 8" Armored Steel Target at 204 yards, 28 times out of 29 shots fired. Using my Aimpoint RedDot Optic with no other magnification.
I am SO impressed with that 10.5" Black Hole Weaponry Barrel that I converted to use a Pistol Length Gas system, that thing is a Tack Driver, Literally!!!!!
BHW Makes the Best Barrels, Period!!!!!!!!
Long Range Precision is the name of the company that I bought my suppressors from. The owners name is Brad & he is a really nice guy, He showed me a NEW Short 223 AR Suppresser that he sells for $500.00? It's maybe 5 inches long or Less and it's for regular or Subsonic Rounds!! I asked him if it really made the noise quiet enough to Not have to use Hearing protection when shooting Hot Lake City Ammo, and he said it sure does. We then went outside where we shot his AR-15 with some Lake City Military Ammo that I had in my car. (I wanted to use my own ammo to make sure it was really working?) It really did take the Loud Noise out of the 556 Ammo that we shot, and we didn't use any ear protection at all... It was not completely suppressed, but with that Can you could probably shoot Hot Subsonic Rounds, seriously!!!
He Developed and made that can for the police Department, but then decided to sell it to the General public too. I don't do a lot of shopping for 223/556 suppressers so this may not be anything special, but I have Never seen a 556 can this small & short ever, either??? I thought it was for a 380 when I 1st saw it?
I had No idea that the Blackout was capable of causing so much Damage to the trees?
