I'm wanting to set up a hog rifle for subsonic's only. Do I go with a .308 and have something that can potentially hunt a variety of other animals or .300 blackout as a dedicated pig/whitetail gun? I've got a 6.5 Creed and 30/06, so I don't have to go with the .308.

If you think .300 blackout....AR or bolt gun?

I would go 300 blk out. I have 2 of the Rem bolt guns, and they are very handy at 16". It is much easier to get the subs to shoot well in a 300 blk out over the 308 Win because of the smaller case. In a bolt gun, it makes it very easy. If you go AR, then you have the semi auto available for the subs. I hunt with super sonic in all my 300 blk out rifles, but there are several expanding subsonic bullets now that I offer, as we all more you can purchase. It takes subsonic hunting to a new level.

+1 on the blackout....just built one for supersonic use 16" barrel 1/8 twist....there's a ton of ammo for the 300...be sure to use a pistol length gas system for yours so it will cycle subsonic loads

Is suppressed supersonic quieter in .300 vs. 6.8?

308.. so when you decide you want to hunt with it you have a viable caliber.

Chadd did you ever get those .300 blk cold tracers loaded up?

As a hog rifle only? .300, no doubt. Your other guns will kill deer just fine.

Technically, the 300 blk out would be a little quieter, all else being equal. The blk out holds about 20 grains of powder, and the 6.8 holds about 30 grains of powder. So, the less powder will have less gas release to keep it quieter.

I will later this week, probably Thursday or Friday. I worked up my loads for the 308 Win with the 200 grain expanding cold tracer just this weekend, and I'm good on those now. Now I need to do the 300 blk out, and I'll load those up this week to test Thur or Fri.

That's not a bad point, too. I love my 308's, no doubt.

But if it's specifically for subs, blk out is the better round with the 8" twist, for sure.

You have deer rifles. Go with the suppressed 300 blk.

+1 on the .300blk. If you can swing it, file the paperwork for SBR and get a 9" barrel and on a suppressor. Ultimate pig rig. up

Already have the trust, if I traded for a "pistol" and wanted to convert it to a rifle what would I need to do?

Change the pistol extension tube to a carbine extension tube and put a collapsible stock on it. You might even get lucky and get a pistol with a carbine tube already installed. A lot of guys that build the pistols with intent to SBR it put a carbine tube on it and wrap it in paracord so it saves them a little money when the stamp finally comes in.

So would I need a Form 1 or Form 4 and does it need to go through a class 3 FFL?
