300 Blackout Ammo
One of the most popular alternative chamberings for the AR-15 platform, .300 AAC Blackout ammo is easily distinguished by its relatively small case and huge bullet. This somewhat odd-looking cartridge fulfills a number of niches better than the default .223/5.56 caliber with better close-range performance and excellent potential in suppressed firearms.
.300 Blackout ammunition comes in two distinct flavors: subsonic and supersonic. Supersonic loads typically fire a light 90-130 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 2,200 feet per second with ballistics comparable to those of the Russian 7.62x39mm. Subsonic ammo, on the other hand, fires a much heavier bullet in the 220 grain range with a muzzle velocity of around 1,000 feet per second to avoid the sonic "crack" that partially negates the advantages of a suppressor.
The .300 AAC has been embraced for a wide variety of purposes, with hunting, match, and defense loads available from most manufacturers including Nosler, Federal, and Corbon. Notable adaptations of the round include Remington's Hog Hammer series featuring Barnes TSX copper bullets as well as Hornady's Zombie-Max hollow point series for those prepping for the undead apocalypse - you can find a wide variety at cheap prices for sale here at Widener's.
