Built an AR in 300 a few years ago and taken quite a few deer, yotes, and coons with it. Lots of fun but after about 200 yards you're about out of power. I usually hunt at shorter ranges than that, anything longer I'll choose something else to hunt with. Obviously with an AR you can build/get what you want. Hear a lot of good things about the Ruger Ranch in 300.

How much do you think you have in building the 300? What grain do you shoot. I wonít be shooting over 150 yards I donít think.

You could probably put one together for $600 or less if you look around. The sky is the limit though. I have about $2500 in mine counting optics and the cerakote job. 150 yards and in and youíll be fine with proper shot placement. Also have a bolt action Remington 700 that shoots very well. Iíve only shot 110 - 135 grainers out of each. Would like to try some of the heavier bullets like the Hornady 208 grainers and see how they act.

I have been hunting with a 300 blk out for the last 5 years. I've taken deer, turkey, pigs, and yotes, plus all kinds of small critters. For basic hunting, it does fine. It's great out of an AR-15 platform, and is a noticeable upgrade from 223. I run an AR for my night hunting and a bolt gun for stand hunting. I love it.

A 125 grain SST, BT or SP is a great bullet weight for good speed and expansion. Mushroom shaped expansion is the norm with these weights. You can drop down to the 110 V-max, and it also work well. I have used the 115 Berger on several occasions, and it provides deep penetration on big pigs. I have used them all.

All above is good/correct info, you can spend as little or as much as you want kinda like anything else lol. Like Nontypical said, you could prob go as cheap as $600 if you shop around for deals and stick to basic/non-upgraded parts. If you wanna go with fancier barrels, handguards, bolt carrier groups, charging handles and triggers; it can add up quick.

Get one of these, .300 B/O from S&W. Comes with a 5R Barrel, mine shoots fantastic. Within it's range it's a killer.

I got me one of them. It is called a 300 Whisper. (same as 300 B/O). They guy did not know they were one in the same. Got it CHEAP! Shoot 110 grain to 130 grain bullets and it can take anything out to 200 yards.

So 300 whisper and 300 blackout are just different names for the same round? How accurate is your smith and Wesson?
Where did you find it for sale?

How hard is it to build one? What would it run to build one?
