Hey yall, I'm in the processes of building a pig killer AR. Its 300 Blackout with a 16 inch barrel. I only shoot supersonic because of the better velocity and stopping power. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what would be a good BCG to put in it?? There is so many different types of BCGs suck as Nickle Boron, phosphate and many more...... If any one has good suggestions that arnt to pricey id really appreciate it!!

Thanks! cowboy

I thought the Ares Armor Reduced Friction design is cool looking and NiB is on sale right now

I haven't had any problems with the phosphate BCG's I've used. Radical has a melonite coated BCG that is smooth for only like $90.

I use Bravo Company BCGs. I just replaced the bolt with a higher pressure one, but I haven't had any issues with Bravo Company BCGs.

I dont think it matters no matter what you purchase

If you want the cheapest gun by the cheapest BCG

If you want the best then buy a NiB BCG

It just depends on how much you want to spend.

They will all work well

Agree, I have 5 or 6 Radical uppers with the cheapest BCG they sell. I've never had an issue with any of them.
