I'd probably stay under 300 yards

I've taken mine to 800 yards with the 125's. But that's just me plinking and goofing around with it.

Realistically, I'd say about 250-300. BUT, that's with supersonic ammo, and not subs. The blk out is not a very fast round, so it drops a lot. If you can dial elevation or accurately hold for elevation, this will help increase the distance.

During the hunting rifle challenge shooting match last year, I used my Rem Model 7 in 300 Blk Out with the 125 grain loads for several of the stages. I can make hits out to 300 yards with a standard duplex reticle with it holding high. I was sighted in at 100 with it, and easily hold for 200 and 300. After that, I'd prefer to dial.

Ryan's Range Report posted a video of him hitting steel at 1K with it. Also there is a video of Travis Haley banging steel at 700 yards with a Aimpoint T1 RDS. Crazy LOL.

Here's a drop/wind chart for the 125 BT at 2300 fps from my bolt gun. If you look at your impact speeds at 300 yards, you are only going 1615 fps. That's slow enough to not allow the bullet to fully open up. You will most likely get a deformed tip with good penetration, with half the energy you had from the muzzle. With this bullet, I'd want to keep the speeds up above 2000 fps (maybe 1900 fps) for reliable expansion. That makes it 100-150 yards, which is within most of my shot distances.

Ive shot deer and pigs with reduced loads out of a 270, impact velocities around 2000 feet per second with 130 grain soft points. On game performance is less than desirable you will get little expansion and a long lean blood trail. I would try to keep shots short.

I am getting (hopefully today) a 16" 300 blackout youth (Ruger American) for my son.
I have some of the 110g Barnes Vortex ammo, I sent Thad Stevens who is the head engineer there an email asking for minimum impact velocity.

For the kid, 200 yards is about max for him and I suspect 250, maybe 300 is max for reliable expansion.

I know the 95 TTSX for the 6.8 was 1600 FPS and that meant at 2850 (16" handload data) that meant 400 yards in theory.
I say 300 to be safe.

Ranch Dog..
I review products.
I got it direct from Ruger.
I am picking it up today.

Will mount a VXR 2-7 on it and sight in with 110g Barnes Vortex ammo.


Hopefuly my son drops a doe or two over the weekend with it.

What bullet? Super sonic round, correct?

That's about what a 130 grain sierra does at +- 2k fps also.
