Suppressed and Unsuppressed

I care more about the power of regular power loads

duel <--- soon...
300 purpose close quarters and swapping out standard ar parts.
6.8 purpose step up from 5.56 at longer distance.
What is your intent and what distance?

I use my 300 for night hunts under 100 yards unsuppressed.

No agenda

I only hear about quiet loads, more interested in full power vs full power. I know the 300 is quiet suppressed

Supersonic is supersonic, which means sonic crack of the bullet. What the shooter hears in 6.8 SPC and 300 Black Out may be equal when ran through the same suppressor. On my range when shoot long distance suppressed, you can hear the bullet flying until it gets to the target. Peeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww......ping smile

I went 300. Only cause dsg did a deal on seekins upper for Black Friday. Haven't really shot it. Just bought some of chads supersonic bullets


My issue with subsonic is I don't understand why everyone wants them. For 300 it's effectively a 45 acp bullet. A 220 smk going 1000 fps vs a 230 round nose going 950 fps. They are fun for the range but haven't seen a purpose beyond that

Although the concept of a 6.8 does really intrigue me

Same here. It's been perfect for hunting out of my pop-up blind. Nice and compact.

6.8 is going to be a better supersonic round as that was the purpose of design.
300 was designed to push a heavy bullet subsonic out of a short barrel to be better is roles where the MP5SD was previously used

If I'm going for subsonic, suppressed performance, I'd go for a 9mm or 45 carbine. The practice ammo's a heck of a lot cheaper than 300 blk.

If I'm going for supersonic performance, 6.8 all the way.

300 blackout has filled a niche that doesn't really exist in my mind.
