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.

The beauty of Russian steel! Wolf’s ammunition features plenty of ferrous metal that will keep your wallet fatter. It’s going to attract a magnet, sure, but it’s going to save you money as well!
This cartridge is loaded with a 145 grain bullet, which gives a 300 Blackout rifle that supersonic muzzle velocity which simplifies long-distance shooting. The bullet’s copper-washed exterior is only skin deep – beneath it lies a hard, deformation resistant layer of soft steel.
Wolf’s steel cases aren’t outright impossible to reload. With special equipment and enough time you’ll be able to do it. But is it worth it? No – unless there was absolutely no other way to get 300 Blackout ammo. But while they are effectively non-reloadable, Wolf’s cases do wear PolyFormance polymer coating to protect them from corrosion and smooth out cycling in a semi-auto.
This ammo’s Berdan primers operate on a slightly different principle than America’s preferred Boxer primer – but they are just as non-corrosive!
